A million thank-you’s to Brent Jensen, the author of No Sleep’Til Sudbury, Leftover People: A Journey Through Post-Rock & Roll America and All My Favourite People Are Broken. Chatting music is what we love to do here, and it was a privilege to speak with someone so saturated with musical knowledge, stories and connections. When you watch this show, I hope you feel the kinship that we music diehards share.
Obscure format junkies: Check out 0:24:10 of the video for info on a format Sony were working on called “The Cube”. It would have been a six-sided format around the time of the compact disc.
You can buy Brent’s books at Amazon, and you can check out his podcasts at nosleeptilsudbury.libsyn.com. (I’ll be checking out the Sandy Horne from the Spoons episode ASAP!) If you’d like some merch, contact him directly and he’ll hook you up. Details at the end of our video.
A million more thanks to Superdekes for setting this episode up. My brother from Thunder Bay should be known as “Superfan” after his meticulous homework and attention to detail!
There will be no sleep tonight as I hit the web looking for all these tunes! From Saxon, to Kick Axe, to Maiden (with and without Blaze), to Priest (with and without Ripper), please enjoy the music that makes our skin vibrate.
For those who missed it, here is the 11 minutes that Youtube missed, but Facebook had. Unboxings: Jeff Scott Soto, John Norum, The Black Crowes, Frank Zappa, Def Leppard.
