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)

WR437: Dill the Giant

The guest on this episode of the podcast, [Dill the Giant](http://www.instagram.com/dolladolladillyall/), is best-known as one-third of local rap heroes [3Peat](http://threepeatmusic.bandcamp.com/). Although Dill just released his debut solo record, he's still never really a solo artist. 3Peat and the wider 4th Quarter Records family are all involved in each other's projects. We talk about that community they've developed, the inspirations behind [*Dill Demo*](http://fourthquarterrecords.bandcamp.com/album/dill-demo), and a lot more. Dill has been on a few other episodes as a member of the group, but this is the first time I've had a one-on-one conversation with him in any capacity, and it's an interesting discussion about an artist whose solo work is strikingly unique while retaining elements of where he comes from. This episode brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/)! ...

WR734: Pacman

I had a very enlightening conversation with Pacman, who has been participating in battles here in Winnipeg and across Canada.Check out our chat about battling as comedy/performance art rather than a strictly musical pursuit, using rap as a springboard to stand-up comedy and writing, whether there’s a “line” that shouldn’t be crossed when insulting an opponent, and much more!   This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works!
