Show Notes

This week the theme is New York, a city none of us have ever visited. There's a massive range of songs about NY, so we had a lot to choose from, but the show ended up being one of the most aggressive we've done to date, with a lot of short, loud n' fast numbers.

WR617: Hopscotchbattlescars

"MySpace revival" is a thing, apparently, and awesome new Winnipeg mathcore band Hopscotchbattlescars are on the podcast to explain it.We talked about their experience as an Internet band — one that has spent most of its existence recording music by sending files to each other online (and how that’s finally changing), writing politically-charged content without beating listeners over the head with their message, and much more. This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company.Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon.

WR115: The Brat Attack

FEB. 2022 NOTE: Dave having been one of 600+ musicians interviewed on this show over the past decade DOES NOT mean anyone involved condones either the incident he was recently arrested for OR the various disgusting things he was accused of a few years prior. At the time of this podcast, he was just a guy in a band. _ ** ** **Dave Z** , frontman for long-running political punks **The Brat Attack** , joins us on the line from Ottawa for this episode. The Brats have a new lineup and a new album, _[…And They Called Us Savages](http://thebratattack.bandcamp.com/album/and-they-called-us-savages)_ , which focuses on Canada’s relationship to its indigenous people along with the usual anarchist/animal rights/anti-racist content.

WR450: Greg Rekus

It's an interview with the hardest-working man in the Winnipeg music scene! [Greg Rekus](http://www.gregrekus.com/) is on the verge of releasing a new record with his band the Inside Job (*[Death & Taxes](http://greg-rekus.bandcamp.com/album/death-and-taxes)*) and will be heading out on more of his non-stop, globetrotting tours in 2020. Greg has been a delight to talk to ever since I first met him back in the ‘90s, and he’s one of those people who is welcome on the podcast anytime. I can only dream about hustling as hard – and having such a positive attitude – with this podcast as Greg Motha Fuckin’ Rekus does with his music. If you're listening on the day this comes out (Wednesday, Jan. 8), *Death and Taxes* is out now in streaming form, plus Greg's performing tonight at Sookram's Brewery with Grotoko, so head down and pick up a physical copy! This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), as well as the Beer Boutique, managed by Winnipeg punk mainstay [StevO Nelson](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/). ...
