On this episode we talk to Josh of Scrap.edx. An outlier in the Connecticut musical landscape. A rhythmic broken beat industrial project. Josh also has a couple other projects. The Carapace which was a one album and done field recording based idea and Children of Men which is a current hip hop cooperative where he has the roll of producer.
We also talk about dealing with Covid-19 and how that effects his daily, professional and creative life among other things. We talk about touring, breakcore basement shows and driving back and forth to Toronto to basically see one act’s set. I (Rick) regret that I didn’t bring up how much we listened to Stabyouintheheadandeatyourfaceoff’s, “Killin’ Toys,” CD (a Redscroll release from 2003 before I was involved) on that trip. Oh yea, and we talk about some other stuff and Josh and I do the standard opening banter with current listening and a quick brief on the store (super quick).

The Redscroll Podcast is a monthly show (new episodes on the first of the month) that works as a companion to what we do at Redscroll Records in Wallingford, CT USA. We are a record store that has a heavy emphasis on the left of center / underground music of the world. Whether it be underappreciated or just has a niche audience, marginalized or just off the radar it’s all of interest to us. With the show we’ll generally have a localized focus. We’ll discuss what is in our personal rotation at the moment. We’ll talk to guests who have to do with all of the above. And we’ll talk about specific dealings with the store. If you have input you’re welcome to contact us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Oh, and please do subscribe! New episodes on the first of every month!
