conversations on art, culture, and world events all rooted in the year of the guests birth
Noel Brass Jr. 1984 (Spinal Tap, Repo Man, Nightmare on Elmstreet) S1 E1
Noel Brass Jr. is a fantastic musician playing in Seattle in the band Afrocop and other projects. He was born in the year 1984 which led to conversations on This is Spinal Tap, Ghostbusters and 80’s pop art, and then Repo Man and the nature of subversive art. We also touched on the unique nature of religious music, the connections between punk and jazz, and the way that horror films like Nightmare on Elm Street can give us a cathartic experience of fear.
