Description

The members of Blaggards, a band based out of Houston, TX, share their experiences and occasionally chat with guests.
"The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press

Bars are reopening and things are getting weird. This week 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.

This week we're thrilled to introduce you to our new drummer, Eric C. Hughes! Eric is a long-time friend of ours who has actually filled in for Mike several times before. His resume reads like a “who’s who” of the Austin and Houston music scene: Allen Hill, David Beebe, The Derailers, Jesse Dayton, Mike Stinson, Archie Bell, members of Fastball... and now BLAGGARDS. https://blaggards.com/wp-content/uploads/My-Post-30.jpg Show notes Eric playing with Blaggards in Greeley, NE (September 2017) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isxj8q0F9P4) Eric interviews Vinny Appice for NAMM.org (https://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/vinny-appice) Eric interviews Charley Pride for NAMM.org (https://www.namm.org/library/oral-history/charley-pride) Join us in IRELAND Fall 2020 Ireland 2020 (https://blaggards.com/ireland/) — Sign up to learn more about our next Ireland tour Show dates Blaggards.com (https://blaggards.com/shows/) Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/blaggards/events/) Bandsintown (https://www.bandsintown.com/a/3808) Follow us Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/blaggards/) Twitter (https://twitter.com/blaggards) Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/blaggards/) Become a Patron Join Blaggards on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/blaggards) for bonus podcast content, live tracks, rough mixes, and other exclusives.
