Interview with Franz Nicolay – Podcast 119

Posted by rich on April 27, 2010

Thanks for checking in.  We’re back with a brand new show featuring everyone’s favorite mustachioed musician, Franz Nicolay.  Along with being a fantastic reason to use the phrase, “mustachioed” Franz is a hell of a musician.  He’s probably more known for his work with The Hold Steady and The World/Inferno Friendship Society but before he was the wizard on the keyboard he was a solo artist.  Recently, he’s returned to the frontman role with two solo releases, Major General and St. Sebastian of the Short Stage.  We had the chance to sit down and talk about his former projects, his solo releases, touring Redding, CA and even tap dancing.  It’s pretty much everything you could ask for from a man of Franz’ caliber.

No new shows this week, but we are still running the NoBunny contest from last week.  Be sure to check it out for your chance to win Love Visions on LP.  I’ll be bringing our brand of shenanigans and interviews to Punk Rock Bowling this year, so hopefully we’ll get some good content out of that.  Be sure to contact us at SoundSceneRevolutionb[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or our comments section.  And follow us on Twitter at Twitter.com/Soundscenerev.  And remember, “What if John Kennedy had said, ‘Ich bin ein Berliner,’ in Spanish?”

Interview with NoBunny – Podcast 118

Posted by rich on April 20, 2010

Thanks so much for taking the time to check back in with us at SSR.  I feel like every new episode I post an apology for taking so long to update. Hopefully, we have enough to keep going for a while, but none of that matters today.  What matters is that we have a brand new show with Oakland’s own NoBunny!  I’m never going to claim to be well educated in garage rock, or lo-fi buzz or anything like that but what I can say is NoBunny rocks.  As if being a complete musical anomaly wasn’t good enough, the guy is also funny and strange as hell to talk to.  So check it out if you want all the scoop on the artist Jay Reatard said put out the best album of 2009.

We also have a chance to win a fancy vinyl copy of NoBunny’s LP, Love Visions.  I have two copies that we may give away, the original Bubble Dumb version and the red repress that was actually an over run that has white labels and a stamp as the center label (I think there’s like 200 of these at most).  So if you like selling shit on ebay, you’ll want this for sure.  As always, send us feedback, questions and critiques at SoundSceneReveolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or in our comments section and follow us on Twitter (Twitter.com/SoundSceneRev).  And remember, “We’re just cashing in on her celebrity right now,” wisdom.
