Joseph Matheny interviews “another Joe”, AKA Bazooka Joe, from Solipsistic Nation and formerly of the smallWorld. They talk about music, podcasting and get into a weird Joe to Joe cross interview feedback loop.

Also, another episode of In Your Ear, this week reviewing “Variant Frequencies” a podcast of (mostly) short fiction in the horror/subgenre sci-fi vein. From Puske: I pay special attention to the podcast novel which they debuted – “The Failed Cities Monologues” http://www.podiobooks.com/title/the-failed-cities-monologues/) – link is to the podiobooks version.

Veil of Thorns had the pleasure of playing live on Bazooka Joe’s show on WMFO in Massachusetts way back in the dark ages. I’ll include those here:

Veil of Thorns first radio appearance one dark Saturday night on Tufts college free-form radio. The second guitarist was Jarrett Laitinen, who I recently learned died of a heroin overdose in 2004. In his final year he lost his father and stepmother in fucked up circumstances. I wish I had recordings that could give a good example of what an otherworldly amazing guitarist Jarrett was. He was the second guitarist on the first two Veil of Thorns demos from 1991 and 1992 respectively.

This is the original lineup:

P. Emerson Williams – Vocals, guitar
Jarrett Laitinen – Guitar
Catherine Chenoweth – Bass
Ruddy Bitch – Drums

Sourced from a reference tape recorded at the station. Some glitches and noise were minimized to the extent possible.
