CKUA Interview with Holger Petersen

It was pretty cool for me to finally get a chance to chat with Holger. I’ve listened to him for a long time so to be on the other end of the program was a little surreal. We had a great chat. We spoke at great length about the recording of Redemption as well as the life and times of the great Jim Dickinson and his amazing family. Interview is broken into two parts. I hope you enjoy listening.

On Tour: Tattoo Night.

So last Friday at Blues On Whyte we met a lady named Dixie. Dixie is a friend of my best friend Jim. Dixie owns a Tattoo Shop with a dude named Kris Schule. The Shop is called Zen Custom Tattooing. After some chatting about it, I told Dixie we’d stop in to see what’s what on Monday.

Well Today is Monday. We stopped by the shop this afternoon but the young apprentice we spoke with said they were booked until Wednesday. Of course we had to leave town on Wednesday so that wouldn’t work. After a few moments, Kris, the aforementioned owner came by to say hi. After some chit chat Kris suggested we come back at 10pm and he would stay late and tattoo us.

After a brief foray to the Mall and Hudsons, we hit the internet to gather tattoo ideas. Around 9pm we gathered ourselves to head on over to the shop. All went well. Shawn and I got in for some work, unfortunately for our pal Jim we used up all the time so Jim had to reschedule (as he is from Edmontown and could come back later). Sorry Jim!!!! We’d like to say a big thanks to Kris Schule for working late and squeezing us in. This is a great shop folks. If you are in Edmonton hit ’em up…..

On Tour: BBQ at Aunties

On Tour: Down in The Valley

Hi all,

well we made it to the island for a week of fun shows and beautiful sights. We saw Bears, Otters, Whales, Sea Lions, German Tourists, Beautiful resorts, crack house hotels, Mountains, Oceans, Beaches, and amazing sunsets. We were tormented by crows, crazy German locals, Bamford’s AND We got to see our friends get married, sort of. We got lots of video that we’ll be editing down for an episode of Bastard TV over the next few days. In the mean time here are a couple of pics from the trip…

We’re back in the Okanagan now and we’re getting ready to head over to my Auntie Kathryn’s for a bbq. We’re stoked for this as Auntie is a bad ass freestyle Chef. After lunch and a hang we’ll head on up to Salmon Arm for a show. Really looking forward to this as we’ve never played Salmon Arm before. Should be fun. Tomorrow we head west for what I think is the last time. We’re hitting Kamloops for a show presented by 92.5FM The X. We’re super excited and have some expectations as we are currently holding down the Number 1 spot in the blues category on that station. The we very slowly start making our way East with a two week rip through Alberta and a brief stop in Toon town again. Looking forward to it all. We’ll have some downtime in Edmonton during the days so we’ll whip up a few more webisodes for y’all to laugh at. Stay tuned…..
