Show Notes

There are no local bands I love more than the short-lived but glorious garage punk foursome The Quiffs.

They haven’t been active in about 15 years, but I was able to get all four members back together for a podcast!

We talked about learning their instruments as they went along, their outstanding — and not available anywhere online — album, the story behind “Mutant Legs”, and much more!

Peppered throughout the interview (and in a big ol' chunk at the end) is their entire recorded catalogue (all ~18 minutes of it) -- the full-length and the three-song demo/EP. 

YOU'RE FUCKING WELCOME

WR305: Chenoa McKelvey and Jacob Letkeman at Mom's House

As many of you are likely aware, I've been guest-hosting a (video) show about local musicians from time to time. It's called '[Mom's House](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ)', and it's the brainchild of a group of up-and-coming Manitoba filmmakers called Young Media. We decided to use the interview portions of the episodes I host and release them in audio form as bonus podcasts! This first Witchpolice at Mom's House episode features a great conversation with local gypsy/Hot Club jazz duo [Chenoa McKelvey](http://www.facebook.com/chenoamckelveymusic/) and Jacob Letkeman. The audio you're about to hear is just my interview with Chenoa and Jacob. To see the full Mom's House episode, which includes live performances, head down to Young Media's website or their [YouTube channel](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ) to check it out. It should be available this weekend! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to our supporters, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to patreon.com/witchpolice, and for as little as $1 a month, you can help keep the lights on! ...
