Show Notes

The inimitable Johnny Sizzle has been beating the shit out of an acoustic guitar since before some of you were born.

The local acoustic-punk pioneer sat down for a wide-ranging interview (audio-only, technical difficulties) about his cross-Canada travels, frustrations with today’s Winnipeg punk scene, his radio show, the upcoming new record, and much, much more.

(He's also, believe it or not, still on MySpace)
