HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FRIENDS! I’m super excited to have with us my best good friends CHEAP GIRLS. As I talk about in the intro, These guys were the support band for my first Drag The River tour. We drank, we smoked, we partied hard for those two weeks and became fast, fast friends. I’ve watched them grow from a small little garage band into a fan favorite. Definitely a band to watch especially if you are into 90’s Alternative pop ala THE REPLACEMENTS, SMOKING POPES & THE LEMONHEADS. These guys are taking that style and introducing it to a whole new generation of kids!

We sit in the basement of the Marquis Theater in Denver, Colorado. We sit back and talk about their new record, GIANT ORANGE, their somewhat controversial decision to sign with RISE RECORDS, recording with AGAINST ME’s TOM GABEL as the producer, Their hometown of Lansing, Michigan and just how they got into the music they play! Its fun. Its exciting and you can hear in the background The MENZINGERS, SIDEKICKS and ELWAY laughing, goofing off and having a great time.

We have a special TREAT as well. We have off their new album and opening the intro is “RUBY” from GIANT ORANGE. Then at the end of the episode we have an almost ten minute excerpt from their LIVE SHOW at the MARQUIS! Those songs include: “NO ONE TO BLAME” From their debut album, FIND ME A DRINK HOME. Followed by “SUNNYSIDE” from MY ROARING 20’s and “MERCY GO ROUND” from GIANT ORANGE wraps things up!

AND EVEN MORE BONUS FOR YOU THIS WEEK!
After the show, I followed the band to Fort Collins, Colorado. They spent the night at the Arliss Nancy/Elway CHOWDER HOUSE from Episode Seven. IAN was kind enough to play a few acoustic songs for me, and I recorded them on my cellphone telephone camera! Those songs are “CORED TO EMPTY” from GIANT ORANGE & “HEY HEY I’M WORN OUT” From MY ROARING 20’s! You can find that video by clicking “READ MORE” at the bottom of this post!
