Show Notes

Way back in 1982, electronic artist Jon Krocker made the fantastic Monolog album, which was released locally on cassette.

Decades later, it found its way to the right ears and was reissued on vinyl by a U.S. label in 2018.

We talked about his experiences creating electronic sounds in those early days, the record being rediscovered and why it continues to resonate with listeners, and much more!

WR357: Jaime Carrasco

[Jaime Carrasco](http://soundcloud.com/bluecaixa70) is a local drummer who has been an important member of the Winnipeg music scene dating back to the '90s. I first became aware of Jaime because of his work with [the Keith Price Double Quartet](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3544210612b466L/) – whose album was my favourite local release of 2017. Carrasco's music, however, expands well beyond the jazz realm, as his current gig with the Leftists demonstrates (haha). We talk about all of it and more! This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/) and by [Demedash Effects](http://www.demedasheffects.com/), a local company that makes hand-made guitar effect pedals like the glorious T-120 Videotape Echo. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week!

WR421: Alex Seville

In the late '90s, I played in a ska band called [Grandpa's Army](http://www.witchpolice.com/2009/04/every-grandpas-army-song-ever.html), and my old friend Alex Seville was the keyboard player. Alex has been living in San Francisco for the past few years, where he’s not playing music, but is – in a turn surprising to anyone who knew him in Winnipeg – participating in freestyle rap-based improv. We talk about all of that, plus the weird creative projects we did back in the day (including a [documentary about Grandpa's Army](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoMrwRIHrhk&list=PL7AAE58E5EC81BEB4)) that - in a roundabout way - eventually led to me doing this podcast. Songs on this episode: Grandpa's Army - "Train to Hicksville" Grandpa's Army - "The Land of Nod" (both live recordings) A Auspicii - "Boris" (weird backwards thing we did) Jesse Matas feat. Confucious tha Ruthless - Rolling in the Juicebox (recorded by Alex) This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/), who are hosting the second annual [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest) Sept. 29. It's also brought to you by MCMA Award-nominated country artist [Brian Jacobs](http://brianjacobsmusic.ca/), whose debut solo record '[Highways and Backroads](http://https://brianjacobs.bandcamp.com/album/highways-backroads)' is available now! ...

WR504: Zoongide’ewin

I had a great conversation with Hamilton (via Winnipeg via Selkirk via Brokenhead Ojibway Nation) 'moccasingaze' artist [Zoongide’ewin](http://zoongideewinmusic.bandcamp.com/)! We talked about his deadly new record, [Bleached Wavves](http://zoongideewinmusic.bandcamp.com/album/bleached-wavves) ([Paper Bag Records](http://paperbagrecords.com/)), about his early career in Manitoba, discovering his shoegaze sound and embracing his Indigenous culture and heritage, and much more. This episode is brought to you by [Never Better Coffee](http://www.neverbettercoffee.ca/) and by [Northern Royals](http://northernroyals.com/)! Don’t forget to check out some socially-distanced shows at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), who have slowly reopened after a long COVID-19 closure. Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), including the most recent patron, Bill Northcott (I will be thanking new patrons on-air next episode).
