Angela and Dylan are back… after 102 episodes and a full year to talk about their new record GRIND. Thoughts on discussion on touring in the age of COVID, continuing on without Rebecca. Bringing in new folks to the band. What adornments and embellishments an extra year (!) of sitting with a record provides, why trying too hard to be what is wanted in the moment is bound for unhappiness and a freewheeling breakdown of each of the new album’s songs.…
Ian Miller is 1/4 of the incredible and iconic Kowloon Walled City. They have a (relatively) new record out and are doing tour dates on the East Coast and Rust Belt, in some cases for the very first time. That is discussed, as well as the origin and story behind (*deep breath*) Interesting Times Gang! Strangelight! No Lights! Less Art! Truxton! The strange story of Puig Destroyer! Productive Outs! Rigs of Dad Podcast! Which songs are a game of chicken with the drummer. And a song by song run through of Piecework. PHEW!
That’s right, it’s Conan’s old friend the mighty Jon Weisnewski, host of the excellent TOMORROW WE DIE! An podcast about touring under adverse conditions that is probably a cousin to Protonic Reversal. Also, the mighty AKIMBO, SANDRIDER and now… NUCLEAR DUDES.
Are you looking for a comprehensive history of the Akimbo Discography? How about the origin of Sandrider? How about exactly what the heck is a Nuclear Dude and why should you care? How about ALL THAT, Alternative Tentacles, the perils of trying to record two albums at the same time and SO. MUCH. MORE. ok?
