While fielding comparisons to Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan, J. Michael Henderson eloquently confessed, “We were all running on the same treadmill back then.” A native of Muncie, Indiana, Henderson recorded two substantial albums at 700 West in “nearby” New Palestine in the late ’70s (actually closer to Indianapolis). Henderson, who has since moved to Southern California, maintains one of the most comprehensive websites of anyone on the Numero roster. Finding it hard to pick just one photo out of the dozens provided, we decided a J. Michael Henderson animated .Gif was the best way to resolve such a matter.
“Nite People,” the title track from his second full-length, is a jovial ode to nocturnal types, and will be included in our approaching Record-Store Day release, WTNG. Chicago residents and commuters are encouraged to attend the Numero Pop-Up Store at 1035 North Western Avenue (aka The Empty Bottle) on April 21st, where some of the Midwest’s finest wheelers and dealers will be selling new and used vinyl, executing DJ sets, and generally acting a fool because they’ve been awake since 5 am, all to be broadcasted LIVE on 89.9-FM. We’ll have a Numero 45 that you can only purchase on site, and it’s just going to be great. “Nite People” WILL be played, and that is a guarantee.
