Show Notes

On Jan. 22, we hung out at historic Osborne Village apartment block The Roslyn with our new friends The Village Idiots to try a really fun live experiment. The show, which we're calling "The Little Mix-Up" was a livestreamed preview of this Sunday's Big Mix-Up Allstars show. It followed the usual Mix-Up "Whose Line is it Anyway? but for music" format, but instead of audience members yelling out genres of music and song topics, they made their requests online via Facebook Live. For the show, we enlisted Tim Haverluck (of The Tims) on guitar and vocals, Darryl Reilly (of Guerrillas of Soul) on sax, and Kumaran Reddy of Cilly Cyb Fung High on bass. They deftly tackled suggestions from "reggae/McDonald's menu" to "bluegrass/narcolepsy" and a lot more. This is a collab we'd absolutely like to do again, and incorporating video (of some kind) into our future projects is starting to seem like a must-do in 2017.

WR385: Better Homes for Meaner People

Sean Lewis is a former Winnipegger and the longtime brains behind heavy electronic outfit [Better Homes for Meaner People](http://www.facebook.com/BetterHomesforMeanerPeople/). He was back in town for a local show recently, so we took the opportunity to catch up. We talked about the essential Winnipeg-ness of Winnipeg, BHFMP's sonic progression over the years, their new 12" EP, and mellowing with age (or not), and a lot more! This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! A HUGE thanks goes out to everyone who has [supported the fundraiser](http://www.gofundme.com/witchpolice-radio-improvement-fund) so far. I'm raising $ to upgrade to better-quality recording gear, and the response has been phenomenal. Your support is greatly appreciated. ...

WR369: Proper Operation

I recorded an interview with Winnipeg (via Portage la Prairie) alt-rock/punk outfit [Proper Operation](http://properoperation.bandcamp.com/) last summer, but for various reasons, it was never formally released. They're back on the show (and this one is actually out now in podcast form) and we talk about their demo EP, the continued appeal of '90s grunge, playing without a bassist, and much more. Note: I wish the O.G. episode HAD worked out, because while the content of the conversation is just fine on this one, the recording isn't the greatest. They're all soft-spoken guys, and at times it can be difficult to hear what they're saying. This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to [patreon.com/witchpolice](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice) and for as little as a $1 month (less than 12 cents an episode), you can help keep the lights on! ...

WR117: RasTamils

East meets west on this week’s episode, featuring the two founding members of innovative local reggae outfit RasTamils. Franklin Fernando and Martin Valach mine their cultural backgrounds to create a unique roots sound as influenced by Sri Lanka as it is by Jamaica. They’re currently in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign for their debut full-length, “A Dream,” which is slated to come out in summer 2015. You can hear a track from the upcoming record in this episode's intro. ...
