Show Notes

The new Closetjudas record, Subaltern, is the latest in the Manitoba (by way of Ontario) artist’s DIY discography.

We sat down to talk about the record, its accompanying psychological/sociological/philosophical reflections, how it was inspired by concepts from a TV series, giving music away for free, and much more.

WR047: Live on UMFM

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.   The podcast is usually prerecorded in a casual basement setting, often weeks prior to appearing on this website and months before being aired on 101.5 UMFM in Winnipeg. This week, however, is UMFM's annual Pledge-O-Rama fund drive, so we made the trek down to the UMFM studios at the University of Manitoba to do a live on-air broadcast.   Fortuitously, Dave Z, of such bands as The Brat Attack and Dead Peasants Revolt, happened to have one day left in his trip to Winnipeg from his new home in St. John's, Newfoundland, so he appeared as our guest. Former Brat Attack drummer -- and once and future Up n' Atom drummer -- Johnny Perrin made a surprise visit to the station while the show was underway and became guest number two.   UMFM's pledge drive runs until Oct. 25, so depending when you read this, there may still be time for you to support campus/community radio. There are a ton of amazing incentives for making a pledge. Just check out the station's website and be sure to mention Witchpolice Radio if you're planning on donating! ...

WR255: Live at Torque Brewing with Laura Artus, Nic Dyson and JayWood

On Oct. 1, Witchpolice Radio took to the stage at **[Torque Brewing](https://torquebrewing.beer/) ** for our first live podcast in almost a year. This episode was called _Mutual Appreciation Society_ , and the premise was that we had three local musicians on the show to talk about songwriting and (more importantly) cover each other's songs! Because the sound equipment for this event was kind of MacGyvered together (huge thanks to **UMFM** for the mics!), the audio quality is, to be honest, not great, but that kind of goes with the territory on a live podcast. The songs -- by **Laura Artus** , **[Nic Dyso](https://nicdysonmusic.bandcamp.com/)n** and **[JayWood](https://jaywood1.bandcamp.com/) ** \-- sound awesome, though. Thanks to our awesome guests for stepping out of their comfort zones and covering songs by artists they'd never heard before. Thanks to everyone who came out, and a huge thanks to Adam at Torque for letting us use such a fantastic venue for the show! **...and if you like Torque, be sure to check out their Brew Ha Ha comedy event at the brewery on Nov. 7, plus the release of their Rabbit Punch black IPA on Nov. 14!** If you like this podcast, please support it.

Huge thanks to all of our patrons! ...

WR026: Pip Skid

This week, Pip Skid chatted with the fellas about "faith." Not to be confused with episode #2's theme of "spiritual," this one runs the gamut from atheism to childhood church experiences to philosophical musings on love and life. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to be a part of this episode, so it's the first Rob + Jon + guest show. They acquit themselves quite well without me. Hopefully we can get this guest back for another show in the future, because as mentioned in the intro, I've enjoyed his records for a very long time (I think I saw Farm Fresh live around '97). ...
