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

WR429: Roger('s) Arsenal

You might know singer-songwriter [Roger's Arsenal](http://rogersarsenal.bandcamp.com) for his roles in a number of Winnipeg bands over the years, or for his heart-wrenching solo material, but he’s spent the last little while working on something new – his first book. "[Bear's Necessities](http://www.instagram.com/bearsnecessitiesbook/)" –written by "Roger Arsenal" – comes out on Halloween, and we talked about self-publishing, transitioning from a songwriter to a novelist, and much more! Please note the last few minutes of the interview got cut off because the memory card was full, so I threw one of Roger's songs up there at the end instead. Also, I realized after the fact that I repeat myself ("fun conversation") in the intro. Sorry. This episode brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/)! ...
