J's Indie/Rock Mayhem - 1st October 2008

[Welcome to another edition of J's Indie/Rock Mayhem. Tonight's episode is pretty talk heavy as it focused largely on this weekend's GreensboroFest 2008. I was joined in studio by the festival's current organizer, Kemp Stroble, as well as a spread of musicians who are playing various nights of the festival: Nicky of Basalt, Molly McGinn and Adam Thorn. Each played a live song and it was fantastic.

So, a head's up - as I said, this episode is big on talk, smatterings of live music and recorded music of bands playing the Greensboro fest and bookended by new music. The regular two-hour smorgasbord will be back next week. Now, onward.]

J's Indie/Rock Podcast: 1st October 2008 Show

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
the Broken West - "Auctioneer" [from now or heaven. i'm kicking myself for not getting to this show last week, but what can I say. i love this album.]
Mclusky - "Dethink to Survive" [from do dallas. ex-mclusky members' new band, future of the left, is playing next tuesday at greene street here in greensboro. i'm so excited.]
Alejandro Escovedo - "Real as an Animal" [from real animal. alejandro is going to be at the cat's cradle in chapel hill on thursday, october 23rd.]
Pulp - "Like a Friend" [originally put onto the great expectations soundtrack, this got tacked onto the american release of this is hardcore and thankfully so. it's a clever song - "like a film that's so bad, but i've got to stay 'til the end / let me tell you now, it's lucky for you that we're friends."]
the Henry Clay People - "Living in Debt" [from their forthcoming for cheap or for free album, out on autumn tone records.]

[So, the interviews start here with Kemp, who sat in on all of the interviews to talk about GreensboroFest, and Nicky of Basalt. We talk about her songwriting origins, her relatively late start in life at actually playing instruments and I inadvertently stick my foot my mouth and call her old, all while just analyzing the band's name. Good job, J. Basalt plays Sunday night at Square One (corner of Glenwood and Grove in Greensboro) as part of the final night of GreensboroFest. Starts at 7pm.]
