Bars are reopening and things are getting weird. This week on SlapperCast, we talk about the safety precautions bar owners have implemented, and the flak they’re taking from customers as a result. Also: bands that would benefit from better singers, overcoming nervousness on stage, the importance of good stage banter: how much is too little, when it does become too much, and should it ever be scripted or rehearsed?
This week on #SlapperCast, we talk about why band members sometimes quit after decades (Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick), and the odd situations where they don’t quit even when they can’t stand each other (The Ramones). Also: surprisingly good solo careers, belated appreciation for Duran Duran and Power Station, and a very loud bird.
This is an unusually low-fi episode of SlapperCast, recorded remotely with Zoom because Chad was feeling a little under the weather. Apologies for the crap sound quality.
