Home Bass > Weekend at Burgie’s scores interview w/ Hand’Solo Head Honcho!

I recently had the opportunity to speak with Wordburglar for his original podcast series, Weekend at Burgie’s. It was a lot of fun! I was given access to his secret hideout where we ate superb homemade vegan pizza buns, drank mini-cans of Coke, and talked about my lengthy venture in music journalism, my short stint in college radio and early podcasting, and my major focus for 20+ years on Hand’Solo Records. Wordburglar also uses his super powers to coin the new word “Quinlincidence”, which I got to experience this past weekend listening to the podcast and hearing me talk about having a broken elbow during the creation of Bassments of Badmen 2 while at home nursing a brand new broken elbow!

While listening I also noticed a few errors in my answers that I’m blaming on faulty old man memory. I’d like to set the record straight for whoever might stumble across it here. Early on we talk about a phone interview I did during a visit with DJ Moves in Halifax. We couldn’t remember who was recording there that day when Wordburglar and I first met, but now I’m pretty sure it was Knowself. And the story is told as if the phone I did was with Sean “Puffy” Combs, but the interview was actually with Mase. I remember Tachichi kept bugging me to let him battle Mase. And my question that abruptly ended the interview was when I asked him if he thought Puffy was ruining hip hop with all that jiggy rap. That was inconsiderate of me to ask. And later, when Wordburglar asks me about my experiments in rapping, I misspoke that I didn’t rap until after the radio show and podcast, but The Almighty Ughnauts! were played on both Lord Knows What and Silly Robots at least once so I was obviously doing it during.

After the interview, Wordburglar includes a short but sweet selection of Hand’Solo songs, old and new.It’s worth staying for…
