Random thoughts from Baggy…This Is How It Feels

Craig Gill: David Bowie, Prince, Lemmy. All luminaries in their own rights, but nothing that felt tangible within my own time-frame. Yes, all three people were important musically, but failed to identify with me. Craig Gill, 44, drummer with the Inspiral Carpets since FOREVER. The over-riding steady percussion over a kaleidoscopic background. His sudden passing…

Skating Polly Pt 2

Here’s part 2 of our exclusive interview and acoustic session with the incredible and wonderful Skating Polly. Enjoy!

Skating Polly pt.1

I visited Skating Polly (stepsisters Peyton and Kelli) at their home in Tacoma on a drizzly Saturday morning a few months ago. The two and a half hour bus journey to get there gave me ample time to catch up on their back catalog – one I’ve been listening the hell out of for the past…

Listen to The Shrouded Door EP NOW!

Oh election day! The day that democracy gets to do its funky thang. The day that we’ve all been dreading for well over a year, The day that my phone is on airplane mode and I download Valley of the Dolls to read in it’s entirety in the bath. In a day where all of…

The Compilation Episode

No blog post this week as Baggy and I are both busy shooting our newest epic film, The Workplace Bully – you’ll be hearing more about it in the coming weeks and months. Meanwhile I thought I’d treat all of you to a wonderful compilation of some of our previous work, in order to whet…

Musings from Baggy

As I sat there at Boarding Gate 11, awaiting my Philly flight back to Seattle, a very well dressed guy plonked himself next to me. He was an insurance salesman, a husband, a father of two. “So, can you please tell me all about the weed shops in Seattle please. It’s been years since I…

L80 – formerly known as Pussy Cellar

I’ve already extolled the virtues of Tony James’ other band, the very wonderful Trannysaurus Rox, but here’s the poppier number he shares with Chad, L80 (pronn “lady” – doesn’t work in my accent but that’s acceptable!). In my perfect world L80 would occupy the pop position that Rhianna currently hogs to herself. If I was to…

NadaFest 2016 – Wiscon

It seemed like such a great idea, turn up at a festival, film and interview a bunch of bands, go home, eat pizza, edit like i’ve never edited before, collapse in a big heap. I’m not sure if I’m crazy or not, but this weekend Alt Fanclub is hoping to bring you coverage, almost as…
