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.

TATE MAYEUX TOP FIVE RECORDS

April 14th, 2020

Today I’m talking to Tate Mayeux.  He’s half of the band called Mayeux and Broussard and I love the way he writes songs. He’s got a place called the Long Play Lounge and it’s KILLER.  They’ve got a ton of vinyl records, craft cocktails and craft beers.  It’s an epic hang.  Go check it out at 704 W St Johns Ave right around the corner from where Airport runs into North Lamar.  

 

They’ve got a release coming out at the end of April at the Sage Brush on South Congress.  I’ll definitely be there if the stay at home restriction is not still in place.

 

If you want to check out the Mayeux & Broussard, you can find them at www.mbtxmusic.com/  For social you can find them at mayeux_broussard on Instagram and Mayeuxandbroussard on Facebook

KELLY GREEN TOP FIVE RECORDS

March 31st, 2020

Tonight I’m chatting with Kelly Green of Madam Radar.  Well they just changed their name from The Texas KGB to Madam Radar due to others that are down on the name KGB.  Jace, her husband and I had a conversation about it and it’s not about the Solviet Union.  I always love the name because it reminds me of my college days and the killer green bud.  They play the third Monday of every month at 121.  New record came out in February that is self titled.  PLEASE definitely check it out.

 

Anyway, we have an awesome conversation and it couldn’t be more obvious how close she is to her brother.  She talks about how her dad had a record deal and turned her on to UFO driving around with him.  Her brother’s in the room and you can here him chime in every now and then.  We talk about how we both love to have others jam with us at our shows and how two guitars are sooooo much better than one. 

 

Her husband Jace can take your new jean jacket and distress it and sew all these badass patches all over it.  Wicked awesome!  I totally meant to give mine to her tonight but I sooo forgot.

 

She’s been doing this thing called the PAACK.  Basically it’s an all female band and the first letter of their each of their names spells out PAACK.  Paige, Andrea, Amanda (LOVE HER), Cari and Kelly.  They play happy hour at CBoys on Mondays.  Go check her out there or go to a Madam Radar show.  She rips on the guitar.

 

Check them out on the ole interweb at www.madamradar.com.  For both Instagram and facebook, their handle is MADAM RADAR MUSIC.

JOSH DUKE TOP FIVE RECORDS

February 18th, 2020

Tonight I am talking to Josh Duke.  He’s the main man of Campfire Gathering and he asked me to be the camp counselor for the event.  I told him that I always knew my strength was songwriting but that I knew at my age that there was no way I could make it as a performing musician.  What he was asking me to do is what I ACTUALLY LOVE  to do.  Engage the people.  So here I am engaging with people of like minds.

 

Campfire Gathering takes place on March 16th and 17th in the pristine Texas hill country at Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs just 30 minutes west of Austin.  Escape the craziness of SXSW. No lines. No waiting.  Epic food and killer music.  Tack on adult camp activities like archery and Axe throwing.  How about a side of yoga and massage with a sidecar of one of the best music lineups today.  Don’t miss this.

 

Anyway, Josh used to run sound for Willie Nelson and Guns and Roses.  He LOVES the Cure. I sang Lovesong at his wedding accompanied by his brother James.  I actually gave him as a baby present for his new daughter, two CDs of lullabies from GnR and the Cure.  The icing on the cake was the toddler onsie that says, “Sweet Child O Mine”

 

One last thing.  Some have asked me about the episode images.  The podcast logo is a sunset backdrop with the silhouette of a woman and a record player.  Each episode image is of the podcastee’s carving of their name in the table I built for a coffee table in 1992.

 

Let’s get to the conversation but first…

 

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