09 – LAURA STEVENSON AND THE CANS!

Laura Stevenson And The Can's Mike Campbell

Laura Stevenson really liked this photo. Mike Campbell and Damian didn’t like it as much, but we know women are always right.

We are a day late on this week’s episode. Why? If you listened to the Brendan Kelly episode you’ll know my 1991 Honda Civic 4 Wheel Drive Station wagon broke down on the way to Fort Collins. I missed a secret interview we had planned with an almighty enigma.

I almost pushed this episode back a week, but I knew you rabid fans would not be happy with waiting a week for the next episode of the BEST PUNK ROCK-ISH PODCAST IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!!

We talk the origins or Laura’s songwriting abilities, her school career, Bomb the Music Industry, Her namesake, Sxsw and MORE! We even talk about the band’s new album and they EXCLUSIVELY announce the title of their new album.

I did another drunken introduction. Its pretty ridiculous. You can skip right on ahead to 8:25 and skip me rambling about how much I love Laura’s feet, that i have never seen.
