Irreverent Jug Jazz
While the actual timeline of The Freebadge Serenaders may be
hazy it's safe to say both Greg Sabin and Patrick Skiffington are
passionate about jazz. If you haven't already, click
the LISTEN link, you're in for:
- Three great songs emulating the sound of Depression Era
- The challenge of marketing that sound today
- The joys of banjo
- Patrick waxing philosophical about the washboard
...and all three of us spending an inordinate amount of time
talking about Keith Lowell Jensen.
Greg Sabin: Banjo, Kazoo, Vocals
Patrick Skiffington: Washboard, Kazoo, Slide Whistle,

Apologies to Ms. McCarrick as I mispronounced BOTH her first & last name mid-interview!
It was due to nerves … and Keith Lowell Jensen.
Broken Social Scene
There was less collaboration on this album and saw the band focused around its core members:
Kevin Drew & Charles Spearin with Andrew Whiteman, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff & Sam Goldberg.
Plus they absolutely killed it on Letterman . . .
"Forced To Love" - On The Late Show
For more BSS - have a look at when Off Air caught up with the band at last summer's Wanderlust Festival
