Show Notes

A doughnut shop is probably the last place you'd expect to find dark synthpop artist [Twitchitt](https://twitchitt.com/), but that's where we met up for an on-the-fly interview on the latest episode of the podcast. Twitchitt just released her second full-length, #AlchemicalWarfare, so we talk about the new record and much, much more! This episode brought to you by the return of Record Sundaze, featuring Dub Ditch Picnic, Eat Em Up Records, Electric Heat Records, and Eye and Ear Control. Nov. 19 at PEG Beer Co.

WR229: Elder Abuse

Winnipeg punks Elder Abuse are on the verge of releasing their new LP, Burnt, so Witchpolice sat down with frontman Alex Guidry to talk about the record, crazy Asia tour stories, the continuing appeal of pop-punk, and the logistics of having a band with members in different cities.

WR218: Greg Rekus

Folk-punk troubadour Greg Rekus is one of those guys we've always wanted to have back on the show. His first appearance was at the beginning of 2014, but has a long history with us that pre-dates the podcast. Greg's old bands (Lacking Intelligence, later High Five Drive) played plenty of shows with our shitty bands as far back as the late '90s. Since 2011 or so, Greg has gone the solo acoustic route and he has engaged in non-stop touring. When we arrived at his house to do the interview, he had literally just come off the road minutes earlier after a 30-hour drive back to Winnipeg from Las Vegas! On this episode, Greg talks about his reputation as a road warrior, about his solid new record, Sibling Cities (which will be released at The Handsome Daughter this Friday if you're in Winnipeg) and about what the future holds for an old punk in a young man's game. If you notice an additional voice chiming in here and there, that's Paul, who was hanging out during the interview. ...

WR035: Jesse Matas

It's the long-awaited Jesse Matas episode! Jesse, whose music is on Witchpolice as a solo artist, as a member of The Pookies and as a member of his current group, The Crooked Brothers, was at the top of our must-have guests list when we started this show. We've all known him (and played music with him) since at least 1995, so this episode went extra-long. As a result, we had to split it into two parts. (You can also check out an interview with Jesse about his classic "Rollin' in the Juicebox") Here's part one, which includes a live performance by Jesse as one of his song choices inside the show proper (first time that's ever happened) as well as some very interesting discussion about that week's theme, "train." ...
