Show Notes

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!

WR214: Dwayne's Punk Phoners

Music photographer/blogger Dwayne Larson was all over Witchpolice in 2016. Starting with an appearance on the show as a guest in the spring, he returned as part of our photography panel show at the Handsome Daughter in the fall. He wasn't only a guest, though. Dwayne conducted interviews with a number of out-of-town and touring acts (Chixdiggit, Limblifter, Safe to Say, Son of Dave) for his It's A Music Thing website throughout the year, and he was kind enough to share the audio of those interviews for use on the podcast as well . Some of those interviews, due to episodes that were more time-sensitive, etc., didn't see the light of day on Witchpolice Radio... until now. Here's a compilation of short conversations Dwayne had with members of iconic '90s punks Face to Face, Canadian psychobillies the Creepshow, and up-and-coming New Orleans hardcore band Pears. All three were in Winnipeg at various times during the latter part of the year. ...
