I met up with the core of Monomyth, Josh Salter and Seamus Dalton right before the annual Mint Records Ridiculously Early Christmas Party in 2015. They wanted me to hold this interview until their new record was ready to come out. Finally the new record, Happy Pop Family, comes out November 4, 2016 on Mint Records. Why’d it take so long? Josh and Seamus moonlight in slacker-rock band, Nap Eyes—Josh is Nap Eyes’ bassist and Seamus is the drummer.
When I hung out with Josh and Seamus, they were staying at a secret band house in East Vancouver. I walked in the door and my jaw dropped: there were crushed PBR cans all over the living room, covering the table, floor and couches. So we each cracked open another beer and started to talk. Josh and Seamus were just the right kind of buzzed for a hilarious conversation.
Tracks played on the show…
1) Monomyth, Saturnalia Regalia (2014) “Pac Ambition” (mp3)
2) Monomyth, King, Does This Not Please You? (Behold the Power) (2013) “Cigarette” (mp3)
3) Monomyth, Monomyth (2012) “Feeling”
4) Monomyth, Saturnalia Regalia (2014) “Theme From Monomyth”
ALL songs CANCON
The extended version of my chat just has extra minutes of drunk band hilarity.
Local “man about town” Jay Arner has been a supporting player in many Vancouver bands, Fine Mist, Gal Gracen, Cult Babies and Rec Centre to name a few. This year, he finally released his self-titled solo record.
Meeting this self-described “shy guy” for an interview had me nervous. Shyness is never good for interviews. Turns out, Jay is a really sweet guy. Instead I needed to be worried about another band Hedley crashing our interview. Listen to our fun chat.
Here in Vancouver, the interview show is aired on CJSF 90.1FM every week. This Saturday Jay Arner is performing at the CJSF FM Party 10th Anniversary at the Astoria. See you there!
After the party, Jay hits the road. Check to see if he is hitting your town soon.

When Chris Connelly from Edmonton’s Hot Panda answered my call, he had no idea he was supposed to be doing an interview. Hot Panda‘s tour van had just just died and he was putting the license plate on their new van.
Chris didn’t even flinch when I suggested we play a little game of kill, fuck or marry with his fellow Mint Records stars Shane (from The Awkward Stage), Paul from (Young & Sexy) and Becky from (The Pack A.D.)
Definitely one of my most fun interviews of this year!!! Come see Hot Panda at the Biltmore this Thursday (Feb 24th) while they are on tour winding their way down to SXSW.
Hot Panda “Mindlessnesslessness” My fav track on their latest record How Come I’m Dead?
Hot Panda “Masculinity” When you see this track played live, Catherine the new bassist plays both trumpet and bass.
