Episode #218, Interview with Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms)

11:00am - 12:01pm

Hello Hello Hello!

This episode features my interview with Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms, The Falcon, The Wandering Birds, Slapstick, The Broadways. I’ve been doing interviews with artists for the past 7 years and that’s definitely one of the best ones so far because Brendan is such a great interviewee, amazing storyteller and in general person with very interesting opinions and background.

We talked about The Falcon’s new album “Gather Up The Chaps”, music ideas inspired by rap music, pornography, fatherhood, bunnyflusher and of course legendary Vegetable Train.
