Show Notes

This is the police episode. It's a little long, rambly and off-topic, but I think it's actually a pretty solid program. The song selection is great, and although we tend to go way off-topic on this one, there's some pretty interesting stuff, including a rant about third-wave ska, a critique of Paul McCartney's "Nirvana" performance and some discussion about the local rap scene. This'll (likely) be the last episode for 2012, as the holidays mean we're going to be hard-pressed to record and post anything until the new year (although who knows, maybe it'll happen).

WR037: Aaron Zeghers / Rhayne Vermette

This week's li'l slice o' Witchpolice magic features Rob and Jon talking about the "alley" theme with Winnipeg filmmakers Aaron Zeghers and Rhayne Vermette. Lots of discussion about poorly-attended shows, sunglasses, etc. Jon makes an ill-advised decision to read some poetry. You know. The usual. Aaron may be familiar to some of you as 1/5 of Sit Down Tracy, but films are the name of his game these days, and you can check out his handiwork on his website, the Cineflyer blog, his Vimeo page or the Winnipeg Underground Film Festival's site. Rhayne's work can be found at her Vimeo page and at the MB Cold Storage Tumblr. ...

WR176: 1971

This week features a long conversation with 2/3 (or 2/4, depending how you look at it) of the hard-to-define Winnipeg (via Kenora) rock band 1971. The fellas have a new tape -- Burning Bridges Before They're Crossed -- coming out today with a house show at their own Sad Boys' Club (assuming you're listening the day this episode gets released). Stay tuned until the end of the episode for an excellent live, acoustic take on one of the tracks from the upcoming EP. ...
