Show Notes

Live and direct from the sweaty confines of my pantry, it's a staple of Winnipeg’s music scene for decades, Greg MacPherson!

We talked about his roots performing solo at hardcore shows, went deep on Winnipeg’s dark/light duality and how that’s reflected in the city’s art, getting loud with Figure Walking, and so much more!

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company.

WR523: Grandpa's Army

Reunited with a few of my former bandmates in late ‘90s Winnipeg ska band [Grandpa’s Army](http://witchpolice.blogspot.com/2009/04/every-grandpas-army-song-ever.html)! The band played its ‘last’ show 20 years ago next month (we did a reunion show a couple years later), and getting together after all these years was a blast. It's a ridiculous conversation about a band that was never as good as its own hype, featuring Alex Seville (keyboards), Goldwyn Millar (drums), Johnny Perrin (vocals), Doug Feaver (bass), Erica Jacobson (trumpet), James Requeima (tenor sax), Morgan Jones (trombone), and me (guitar)! This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new [Heartbeat EP](http://thegumshoestrut.bandcamp.com/album/heartbeat-ep) on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records. Check out our pals at the [Beer Boutique](http://www.facebook.com/beerboutiquewpg/)! Join us at the third annual [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest/), which takes place entirely online, Sept. 26-27!

WR469: Nic Dyson

It's a lovely remote interview with 'acoustic sad' singer-songwriter [Nic Dyson](http://nicdysonmusic.bandcamp.com/), all about his punk background, his highly emotional, personal songwriting, his upcoming (full band!!) record, and a whole heap more. This episode was a long time coming and I’m glad we made it happen. Nic made an appearance on a [previous live episode](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr255-live-at-torque-brewing-with-laura-artus-nic-dyson-and-jaywood-35a1aa163134e4/), but this is the first time he's sat down for a formal interview on the show. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/). …and local electronic artist [Tape_Worm](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr432-tape-worm-37e019ce319736/), who is playing his [first-ever live show](http://www.facebook.com/events/2618292545056821/) at the Osborne Underground March 19 – a gig which also serves as the [Vagina Witchcraft](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr427-vagina-witchcraft-37d2b89d47ea04/) tour kickoff and includes past Witchpolice guest [Paige Drobot](http://witchpolice.com/e/wr376-paige-drobot-37461d930714ac/) as well!
