Alison Hancock drummer, bass player, former member of Hot Dolphin, current member of Peace Beast came by on a Sunday afternoon to talk. I had mic issues I think I forgot to mention that, but I know what it is now, bad mic. We had a sprawling conversation about relationships, music and spirituality, the big three. I enjoyed getting to know her a little. It’s pretty awesome when a stranger comes over and leaves a friend, well maybe an acquaintance, ok.. Facebook friends. I missed out on Hot Dolphin but will not miss out on anything else this talented,cool woman does in the future. I wish I didn’t have to write these blurbs at all, but you have to put something here, right? It’s kind of redundant since we cover anything I want to write here in the podcast. Its an aural experience so stop reading already and listen. It’s on iTunes. Subscribe.
Bob Nastanovich is a former member of Pavement and the Silver Jews. He’s been a tour manager, a horse racing afficianado and is an all around charming dude. One of the most enthusiastic lovers of music I’ve ever met and one of the only people I can’t recall ever seeing without a massive grin on his face and wink in his eye. He spent his teen years in RVA and though he has long since flown the coop. He returns to roost every now and then to see family and this is when I snared him into doing my show. Its starting to be a tradition that I grab these Richmond ex-pats when they get sucked back by the holiday family vortex. The Garden State effect or something. This time out he spun some records at Balliceaux and helped raise some money for Feedmore. I hadn’t seen him since the 90’s when I worked at the label his band was on and I have to admit I was fairly surprised it was so easy to set this up. It’s about as ADD a podcast gets but a damn good time with an awesome bloke.
