Show Notes

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.
