Twirl Radio Playlist – Show #780 – 5/13/2017: Walker Brigade interview!

Walker Brigade

On today’s show, we welcomed the great L.A. band Walker Brigade! I’ve been enjoying their brand new album Therapy Animal, which touches on the harder edges of power pop, while still keeping the melodies at the forefront. All four members of the band were in on the interview: Tracy Landecker, Mark Fletcher, Jeff Charreaux, and Craig Tyrka. I got to learn such juicy tidbits as where the name of the band came from, and why they covered a song featured in the Mel Brooks film “Blazing Saddles”! Their collective musical influences are pretty wide-ranging–everybody from Mick Ronson, X-Ray Spex, Jefferson Airplane, Mission of Burma, and even swing jazz and drum and bugle corp music figure into their mix!
