This episode of Start the Music! I talk to Sam Eastmond, composer and one of the leaders of Spike Orchestra. We talk about music and community, being a band geek and the usual questions about first albums and first gigs. I also give some details about upcoming episode 10 and check out that SOCAN image on the sidebar! We’re licensed!

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.

2: YOUTH DECAY – When Thieves Are About
3: PRESENCE – Crispy Ambulance
4: LOUPGAROU – Crispy Ambulance
