Nardwuar: Who are you?
Daniel Johnston: I don’t know. It’s hard to tell.
Nardwuar: You are Daniel.
Daniel Johnston: Yeah, I’ve heard that. That must be me.
Nardwuar: Daniel Johnston!
Daniel Johnston: That’s right.
Nardwuar: Welcome to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Daniel Johnston.
Daniel Johnston: Thank you very much.
Nardwuar: I have a gift for you right off the bat from the Vancouver band, Cub. Here it is, their seven-inch Betti-Cola. [Nardwuar pulls out a 7inch]
Daniel Johnston: Ah, that looks good! That looks pretty good!
Nardwuar: With cover art by Dan Decarlo.
Daniel Johnston: Ah, no kidding man. That is cool. He’s great. I love those. I buy those Archie comics a lot. [looking at the 7inch]Those girls look so foxy. I always buy ’em.
Nardwuar: And you know what’s really amazing about it, and I have another gift for you, is they actually cover, and this is on their CD, they cover “Tell Me Now” by Daniel Johnston!
Daniel Johnston: Oh, no way. I love that. This is great!
Nardwuar: And they’re from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. What do you think about that, getting Dan DeCarlo?
Daniel Johnston: Yeah, he’s cool. I mean those girls look like real foxes and babes on the Archie comics.
Nardwuar: And they have some great lyrics too, Daniel. One of them is “Satan sucks, but you’re the best.”
Daniel Johnston: [Surprised] Oh my.
Nardwuar: That’s one of their lyrics.
Daniel Johnston: Yeah, oh, hmm.
