Well, here we are wrapping up the year that was ... 2012. I remember starting the year with the resolution of getting back in to writing and playing, then eventually doing that long-dreamed album project. Instead, a fateful conversation with Jack Barkley on a rainy spring night led me to starting a radio station instead. In retrospect, it was probably the better choice. The original idea was to keep something related to local music in front of people during those weeks when I just didn't have the time or energy to do a podcast. Unexpectedly, the station greatly increased attention and traffic to the site and provided the opportunity to record podcasts live, in real time, from the newly-improved and remodeled basement studio -- instead of carting the gear out and recording two hours of stream-of-conscious rambing that often took days to edit into a 1-hour show. This meant I was suddenly recording two podcasts per week with much less editing time and effort to get them out, and have even been able to incorporate live sets played right here in Studio B and broadcast live to the Internet at large.
Our final podcast of the year features Bizarre Noir, a heavier band that places an emphasis on showmanship, storytelling, and the now sadly somewhat-archaic "album concept." Any fan of hard rock, metal, or even 90's industrial music will find something they like in this music, I know I did. Sadly, I've not yet been able to see a live show, but I'm hoping to rectify that oversight sometime in the near future. As always, I had a great time hanging out with these guys, and look forward to their new project in the coming year.
