MIKE G TOP THREE STONES RECORDS

August 18th, 2020

Today I’m talking to Mike G.  He’s the main man in his band, the Jukebox Heroes.  Today’s episode is going to be a little different.  Usually, I speak with the podcastees about the top five records that they could only have for the rest of their lives.  About a year ago, I was at the One 2 One bar on South Lamar and having a talk with Mike G.  We were talking in depth about the Stones and I mentioned that he should be on my podcast.  Then I said, let’s make it a top 3 Stones records podcast.  After many high fives, hugs and laughs, we decided we were going to do it.  Basically, this episode is two Stone’s fanatics talking about a subject they both love.

RUBY DICE TOP FIVE RECORDS

June 23rd, 2020

Today I am rapping with Ruby Dice.  We had an awesome conversation about her top 5 records. 

 

I’ve known Ruby Dice for quite some time.  She played in my band for a hot second back in the day.  She used to sing a blues song with us and I was shocked that none of her top five records were old school blues.  She does have a Black Keys record so I guess that will have to do. 

 

Close your eyes. You’re back on that desert island again.  What five records do you have?

KEVIN MCKINNEY TOP FIVE RECORDS

June 9th, 2020

KEVIN MCKINNEY 200601

My name is Gunter and I play in a local Austin band called The Big Gun Show.

I created this podcast to sit down with other songwriters, musicians, artists and lovers of music to talk about their top 5 records that have inspired their lives and musical prowess. 

Today I am rapping with Kevin McKinney.  We had an awesome conversation about his top 5 records. 

We talk about how at least one of the records was of childish importance.  We talk about how fellow Soulhat guitarist Billy Cassis turned him on to Jimi Hendrix and how he gets Jam Guilt.  He describes Talk Talk’s effort as an Art Project but soothing, spooky. He’s calls it a massage and how he found it at a book store in college.  Gotta leave that space.

JOHNNY GOUDIE TOP FIVE RECORDS

May 26th, 2020

Today I am rapping with Johnny Goudie.  He’s a staple in the Austin music scene and has his own podcast called How did I get here.  He’s been in multiple bands including Mr. Rocket baby, Goudie and he now performs under his name.  One thing I did not know about him was that he lived in Mexico.  I sure do love Mexico.

We talk about how My Bloody Valentine uses a ton of loops and it’s hard to distinguish if what you are hearing is a guitar or keys.  He describes their sound as a symphony of noise.  We talk about how Tom Petty was on the verge of becoming an amazing songwriter but still had his aggressive youth mannerisms.  I love how he said that the Velvet Underground spent $10 thousand on an album that created 10 thousand bands.

Close your eyes. You’re back on that desert island again.  What five records do you have? Until next time.

Jay Stiles Top Five Records

April 28th, 2020

Today I am speaking with Jay Stiles AKA Crystal Finger.  I met Jay when I was playing in an Austin club called the Rattle Inn.  We we’re playing after him.  Once he was done, he asked if I wanted keys.  He said, “I’ve got a pretty good ear if you’re into it.” I remember smiling as I said sure.  Since then he sits in with The Big Gun Show.  He’s got the look.  He’s got the chops.  And so fun to play with.

 

He talks about how he studied with Victor Wooten and how he relates to mangled musicians

AJ Vallejo’s Top Five Records

March 3rd, 2020

Tonight I am talking to AJ Vallejo.  AJ is the frontman of Austin’s legendary rock band called Vallejo. He has produced my band’s two albums and was Producer of the Year from 2014 thru 2016.  He’s an amazing guitarist and vocalist and I am honored to call him my friend.

  

You're going to love AJ’s top 5.  Motorhead would never be in mine but I guess I can see why it’s in his.  If I had to guess one of AJ’s I would have scored as I knew RATT would be one of them. 

 

My favorite part of this episode was what AJ was wearing.  It was Halloween night and he showed up as Prince.  He had the gold chains hanging in his face.  Really made me laugh.

 

Close your eyes.  You’re now on a desert island.  What 5 records do you have?

PATRICE PIKE’S TOP FIVE RECORDS

February 4th, 2020

Tonight I am speaking with Patrice Pike.  She’s been in Austin as long as I have.  She actually was one of the people that inspired me to start chasing music.  Tonight she inspired me to let some episodes be longer than the 30 to 40 minute length that I thought was originally appropriate. 

 

We talk about how all the records that she picked were before she turned 24 and how they are all her mother’s fault.  Mom was playing Songs in the Key of Life to her when she was three!  I love how she says that Prince throws SEXY LOVE DARTS and that Stevie Wonder’s voice is a kind of fingerprint.

 

Campfire Gathering is coming up next month.  I am the Camp Counselor/Director.  It's between the two SXSW weekends in March.  

 

Let’s get to the conversation.  But first…

Rosie Flores Top Five Records

January 21st, 2020

In this episode I am talking with Rosie Flores.  She is a friend and she is my guitar teacher.  She has won multiple Ameripolitan awards as well as a Peabody Award for her narration of the documentary "Whole Lotta Shakin".  She has an actual day named after her in Austin on August 31st and was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 2007.  She’s been on both Austin City Limits and Late Night With Conan Obrien.  It’s pretty awesome having one of your good friends as a hero.

 

In 2012 she released WORKING GIRLS GUITAR and in 2019 she dropped her long awaited blues album called SIMPLE CASE OF THE BLUES.  Please check them out.  They’re amazing.

 

Close your eyes.  You’ve been locked up for 10 years.  What 5 records do you have?
