Episode #23 – Parallax, YELP, Wanda Jackson, Vic Back

This week’s episode begins with SLUG’s Contributing Editor Ricky Vigil sitting down with Parallax guitarist Elliot Secrist about the re-releases of the band’s first and only full-length album, Mediums & Messages, recorded before the death of the band’s lead singer Blake Donner in 2005. In tribute to the re-release, we preview two songs off the album throughout the show. Next up, Jeffery Steadman from Yelp drops by again, this time he and JP discuss pie and the best local places for a slice. Then, SLUG writer James Orme chats on the phone with rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson in an archived interview from February 2011 about her new album with Jack White and parts of her career. Then SLUG writer Mariah Mellus drops by Blonde Grizzly to interview co-owner Caleb Barney and tattoo artist Vic Back about the Nutcracker showcase on display this month at the shop.
