Episode 46 - I am Forever by Traindodge with BEST FRIEND OF THE POD Fraser Stewart
Here’s a story.
When you start a podcast you kinda want people to listen. I mean, we wouldn’t be making the bloody thing if we didn’t think we could offer something interesting and/or entertaining. You never really expect people to do it though, and so when you start to ask the people you didn’t expect to listen to give you money for the whole damn endeavour it feels a bit like daylight robbery.
Yet, people listen. Not a lot, but enough. And then people donate. Not much, but a little. Then somehow, it begins to feel like a proper thing. Pride swells, hearts flutter and brains are completely baffled by people’s willingness and generosity for giving money to three guys who are probably still chancers.
So we’d like to thank all of your for giving a shit about this like we do.
As some may know, a while ago we put a post on Facebook saying that if someone would be daft enough to donate £100 we’d do an episode with them in their living room on a record of their choice. We didn’t think it’d actually happen, yet it did. The man? Dundonian legend Fraser Stewart. Some may know him from the band Fat Goth.
In keeping with the very spirit of this podcast he chose an Unsung band with an Unsung record, pulling the album ‘I am Forever’ by a little known band from Oklahoma City called Traindodge.
This is our thanks (?!) to him. And he takes on a wild ride as he talks about his connection to this band and their music.
Also, he finally did a theme tune for the Dave Grohl Nexus and we must warn you - it’s so good it might actually break the internet.
Is this the best Traindodge album? Vote below!
