51 – TWO COW GARAGE Live interview and acoustic taping at Mutiny Information Exchange!

Two Cow Garage let a homeless man ask them questions at Mutiny Information Exchange in Denver. They busked a few songs and donated the money to this down on his luck fellow! What sweethearts!

Two Cow Garage let a homeless man ask them questions at Mutiny Information Exchange in Denver. They busked a few songs and donated the money to this down on his luck fellow! What sweethearts!

TWO COW GARAGE join us for a very special episode of Mostly Harmless, recorded in front of a live studio audience at Mutiny Information Exchange in Denver, Co! There would not be a Mostly Harmless with Dammit Damian if it were not for Two Cow Garage.

I found myself on a week long road trip with Michael Dean Damron, who is an excellent solo musician who is also known for his time with the best southern rock band from Portland, I Can Lick Any Son Of A Bitch In The House. With Mike, I spent a week on the road following Two Cow Garage. We spent our nights in shitty, shitty, shitty hotel rooms drinking massive amounts of 3.2% beer and talking life the universe and everything.

When I returned to real life after those seven days, I had a hole inside of me and wanted to do more with my life than work a shitty job, so I picked up a tape recorder and started interviewing  musicians again, but with an emphasis on those conversations I had with Shane, Micah and Murph from Two Cow in those shitty hotel rooms. Micah was the show’s second guest and with his appearance we took off and things have not been the same since. This is hands down the best adventure I have been on, and I owe it all to Two Cow.

Two Cow were kind enough to join us at Mutiny Information Exchange for a short interview session and acoustic show. I was nervous as hell, but we managed to talk to the guys about their love of shitty beer, their relationships with fathers, their favorite moments of their 12+ year career and their new record THE DEATH OF THE SELF PRESERVATION SOCIETY!  

It was a fun adventure and we look forward to doing more live Mostly Harmless Episodes! Special thanks to James Freeman of That’s The Thing About That for the EXCELLENT recording! Check out his blog for more fantastic “bootleg” show recordings, including Two Cow’s Lion’s Lair Show!

Top 10 of 2012 plus Mostly Harmless Podcast Mixtape!

Before I get started here, I’m not a music reviewer. There is a reason I stick mostly to interviews. I’m not really good at explaining the WHY of why I like something. My passions come from a more gut sense of things. Below I’ll try to put into words why I liked these ten records of 2012. Hopefully I convey some idea of why these albums are great and perhaps you will check out the mixtape I’ve made!

All songs count down to Number 10 to #1! You can also find the mix over at Spotify (http://open.spotify.com/user/damian.burford/playlist/3VMXIvPK8apjtI5S19ORzY) or you can download the mix at: http://mostlyharmlesspodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Mostly-Harmless-Best-of-2012.zip

At any time these albums could be switched around, so while this is my top 10 and I spent hours deciding the order, tomorrow it could all change, but still be very relevant.

About my listening process: I have OCD of sorts in that I will listen to an album over and over and over until I get tired of it, or something else comes along to take its place. I tried to order these albums in the order in which they were most listened to, and I also factored in the “Stuck in my head factor,” which is usually what leads me to pull out an album and rock it out again.

Please read, take a listen, and let me know what you think! What did I miss? What were your favorite albums of the year?

TOONAGE – Episode 01 – No interviews Just a Rock N Roll Mixtape

No interviews here. Just music and ramblings.

 

Hello Friends! Today is the first episode in an irregular series of Podcasts dedicated to just playing music, oh and of course my infamous ramblings.

With the TOONAGE series, we will infrequently bring you music from artists who might be off your radar, and whom we think should BE on your radar! These are artists who might not be touring out to Colorado anytime soon, and for whom we might not be able to get as guests for a few weeks, months or years, but think you should know about NOW!

I ramble a lot in this episode. I’ve learned from that to keep it simple, and with the next TOONAGE, we’ll keep it a tad bit shorter.

If you like what you’ve heard, please let us know you want MORE! Email me at Mostlyharmlesspod (at) gmail (dot) com. Leave a comment below or maybe just post on our little Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/mostlyharmlesspodcast
