SlapperCast: a weekly talk show with Blaggards

Blaggards

The members of Blaggards, a band based out of Houston, TX, share their experiences and occasionally chat with guests. "The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press

What would it take to make a good one, what makes them bad, and a few ideas we have for good ones.

The story behind BLAGMATIC's "hidden" track, the audiobook of Bruce Springsteen's autobiography, why music biopics are often bad, and what makes them good when they're good. NOTE: Stevie Van Vandt does indeed read the audiobook of his memoir, and it pretty much sounds exactly as ECH envisioned it (see link below).

This week we have a stunning conversation with the mighty Ash Soan—speaking to us from his recording studio all the way over in Norfolk, UK. Ash is a brilliant drummer, recording and touring musician with a resumé a mile long and loads of amazing stories to tell, of which you'll hear plenty in this episode (Sinéad O'Connor, Van Morrison, Del Amitri, Adele, Rick Wakeman, Terry Reid, et al). We also talk about how the pandemic has affected touring musicians and road crew, and what things might be like when we're able to resume business as usual. But the main focus of this conversation turned out to be the underappreciated art of "playing for the song".
