LEXINGTON, Ky. — Psych rockers Sweet Country Meat Boys and Somerset-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Jonathan New joined Matt Wickstrom this week for episode 60 of Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio.
The first hour of the program blasted off with a pre-recorded interview from Feb. 23 with Sweet Country Meat Boys – guitarist Aaron Todd, bassist Alex Parkansky, drummer Jordan Modaff and visual artist Travis Hall – to discuss the March 23 release show for their album “I Am The Thief, You Are The Medium” at The Burl, influences, interactive visual art and more. We also listened to “Slice Dream,” “Dad Zap,” “Door Gap,” “Diamond in My Web Womb” and “Get Off” from the band.
In hour two we welcomed Jonathan New live in the studio to discuss growing up a preacher’s son, performing as a one man band and with Rachel Crowe; “Who’s toughest to raise: children or baby goats?” and more. New also performed two songs – “Livin’ Off The Tip Jar Blues Again” and “Queen City Blues.”
Listen to an archive of the show below.
Tune in on Monday, March 25 from 9-11 a.m. for episode 61 of Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio. I’ll be joined by Morehead’s Bedford Band and Lexington singer-songwriter Eric Bolander. Tune in on the dial at 93.9 FM-WLXU or online at LexingtonCommunityRadio.org.
