Start the Music! 008 – Kylie Rebecca (Tour Photographer)

There’s more to the music industry than just bands, and this week I talk to tour photographer and videographer Kylie Rebecca about doing photoshoots, being on tour and staying inspired. A picture is worth a thousand podcasts so make sure you check out her portfolio. This episode’s music selections are taken from the USA, UK and Canada – there is something for everyone.

Start the Music! 007 – Chris Cote

This episode we’re going to bring some Southern California to your ears as I interview singer & bassist of the band Kut-U-Up on his way to grab some waves. Fun fact: This is the first interview I have ever done with someone in a wetsuit. We talk about the Pop Disaster Tour, quickly approaching the 15th anniversary of its last show (June 17, 2002) and the exploits of a band nobody knew accompanying two of the biggest pop punk bands of the time on tour. All that AND music from Chin Up, Kid & Sharp/Shock!

Music played on the podcast from their 2 song EP

Start the Music! 005 – Alan Hempsall

Episode 005 – Alan Hempsall

It’s all about punk and post punk in this weeks interview. No CanCon this time. We have two great American bands and two tracks from our feature interview Alan Hempsall from the UK band Crispy Ambulance. If you have seen the indie movie/biographical film CONTROL about the life of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, you may recognize his name. This is a long episode folks, we’re getting close to an hour territory. I promise to talk as little as possible.
