Episode #43, Interviews with The Flatliners and The Shell Corporation

10:00am - 11:00am

Interviews with The Flatliners (Toronto, ON) and The Shell Corporation (USA)
Hello Hello Hello!

Pretty good episode in my opinion! Two interviews in it! Double success!

My first interview was with Chris and Scott of my favorite Canadian punk band The Flatliners. Those handsome Ontarioanians released two amazing songs on a split 7? with Make Do and Mend and their brand new album ?Dead Language" comes out on Fat Wreck Chords on September 17th. Those were the two main topics of our conversation. In this episode you can hear three new tracks by The Flatliners and all three songs are killing it big time!

My second interview was with Jan of The Shell Corporation. This band has been one of the most exciting discoveries of my past year. Very catchy, sing-alongy punk rock with very well written songs. We discussed their last EP ?Time and Pressure?, W.B. Yaets poems and the genius behind Propagandhi?s ?How to Clean Everything? + world radio premier of a new cover version of Bombs Away (originally by The Police) of The Shells Corporation?s new album ?Mandrake?. Exciting!

And in the end of the show I played songs by two awesome local bands Contra Code and Living With Lions, because both bands are playing shows this weekend.
