06. Old Time Relijun
Arrington DeDionyso's apocalyptic dance-punk combo Old Time Relijun have recently returned from a ten-year hiatus with a new album "See Now and Know" and a tour that started the night before this episode's release. He joins me and guest co-host Jeremy Schwartz to discuss the origins of the group, influences, lyrical themes and sonic aesthetics. This is a band on a mission to make you dance. Their formula is equal parts joy and terror. This was recorded at Thurston Community Media's studio in Olympia, WA by guest engineer Andrew Ebright.
Their latest full-length at the time of the interview, "See Now And Know" (2019)
