On this episode of the Redscroll Podcast we talk with Rick Omonte. We brought him on this time (third time!) to talk specifically about his passion project that’s occupied much of the last decade (more accurately about 7 years); it is a compilation entitled “Puro Tayta Shanti” that is now out on Discos Shaki with Little Axe Records.
Instead of filling this space with the insight Rick Omonte brings to life with his stories and explanations we’ll let you listen. At the end of the talk we briefly cover the other subjects he’s been on the podcast for: the Mountain Movers (and other bands/musical projects) and the State House (still fairly new New Haven set music venue).
Stefan and Dave of Seventh Circle Promotions stopped by. Seventh Circle puts on shows in the area including upcoming shows with Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky and Jesus Piece and Sanction among others.
We talk about all the shows they have coming up, some road-bumps when doing shows in the past, and about lizards and cats and such. Y’know, life.
Dakota, Danny & Liam of Kidnapped joined us for this episode of the Redscroll Podcast. We talk about what we’re all listening to before jumping off into the wild world of touring the midwest – in the most broad sense of what that could mean.
Danny gives many shout outs – one of which I back-mask multiple times. Dakota loves the Deftones. Liam and Danny plan a trip to Mexico with a new band that got booked basically before they even had songs (and they play there with CONFLICT!). This episode goes a bit off the rails and there are a ton of sound effects and it’s generally fun. Music too.
On this episode we talk to Dan Manning who helms the project, Reduction Plan. We talk about the music we’re all listening to.
We talk about Dan being from Bethel, CT and how that informed his current musical proclivities and why living in Brooklyn makes the most sense for him today – including working for Terrorbird Media and how that commute is shrunk tenfold. And we go on from there.
