Show Notes

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! Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case!

WR041: Goldwyn Millar / James Requeima

This week's episode features a couple of out-of-town guests, former Winnipeggers Goldwyn Millar and James Requeima. While they're now in Ontario and Quebec, respectively, doing math-related work (hence the theme of "mathematics"), these fellas started out back in the late 1990s as members of Grandpa's Army (with Witchpolice Radio co-host Sam and a million other people), and Goldwyn went on to play in The Mouth-Boat (with Sam and co-host Jon) and Shoshaku Jushaku (with Jon, but co-hosts Sam and Rob appear on the record). ...so, as usual, everything is very interconnected. ...
