Show Notes

[Star Thistle](http://starthistle.bandcamp.com/) is an indie-folk side project by the man behind the death-country sludge stomp of [Uncle Sinner](http://unclesinner.bandcamp.com/). We talked about the sonic and emotional differences between the two projects, the[ new Star Thistle release](http://starthistle.bandcamp.com/album/the-best-of-star-thistle), songs you can feel, more obviously poetic lyrics, and much more. This was clearly recorded on one of those brutally hot days over the last little while, because you can hear my air conditioner struggling mightily in the background (although it doesn't take away from the conversation|).

WR115: The Brat Attack

FEB. 2022 NOTE: Dave having been one of 600+ musicians interviewed on this show over the past decade DOES NOT mean anyone involved condones either the incident he was recently arrested for OR the various disgusting things he was accused of a few years prior. At the time of this podcast, he was just a guy in a band. _ ** ** **Dave Z** , frontman for long-running political punks **The Brat Attack** , joins us on the line from Ottawa for this episode. The Brats have a new lineup and a new album, _[…And They Called Us Savages](http://thebratattack.bandcamp.com/album/and-they-called-us-savages)_ , which focuses on Canada’s relationship to its indigenous people along with the usual anarchist/animal rights/anti-racist content.
