Midnight Looms 062 – DAVE SHELLNUTT from BIKE BRIGADE – September 14th 2021
If you’re like us, you wanna do something to help out your community during these hard times, but money is tight. Well, tonight, we’re joined by a guy who was in the same boat so he started up an org that has grown into a huge thing. DAVE SHELLNUTT is better known as THE BIKING LAWYER. He’s a cycling enthusiast (if not fanatic), who created BIKE BRIGADE, a grass roots org that helps deliver food and aid to people in need. That’s a reason to be excited. Here’s another one. Dave picked out a bunch of tunes to go along with our chat but we decided to have no advanced notice on what those tunes were. He gave us a list when he arrived and we rolled with it. We love it when we have no agenda. Tonight, we fly by the seat of our pants!
This ride begins with a NEW MUSIC coming out of Europe, where acts are combining POST-PUNK with elements of JAZZ and EDM while that Post-Punk aesthetic is permitting every genre of music. Gobs serves up a fresh and diverse platter of killer tunes to showcase this movement that he’s calling “COLD ERA”. A CERTAIN RATIO, FOX ft. DLR & ALIX PEREZ, HIATUS KAIYOTE, KOJAQUE, THE LOUNGE SOCIETY, and WHISPERING SONS all in the mix. Gobs squeezes in a scorcher of a classic, by SONIC YOUTH, before The Biking Lawyer takes over the selecting. WE ARE NOT WORTHY!
Our guest, Dave Shellnutt, bring a different vibe to the virtual decks. HIP HOP, REGGAE, SOUL, and a bit off fight music by RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. BOB MARLEY, ERYKAH BADU, MARVIN GAYE, 2PAC, and SZA blend together while Dave chats about the important work Bike Brigade has been doing.
In the final 3rd of the show, Gobs showcases some amazing tunes by INDIGENOUS ACTS. NEW MUSIC from AASIVA, ISKWE, and STATUS/NON-STATUS along with a CLASSIC by the legend, WILLIE DUNN. Then it’s time for our monthly VINYL. Gobs puts the needle on a RARITY from one of the greatest entertainers who ever lived. BIZ MARKIE on wax! The episode concludes with a SAMPLE CHAIN that features BILLY COBHAM, LO FIDELITY ALLSTARS, PIGEONHED, and the infamous DJ HELLFISH. What a wild ride! What an uplifting episode. It’s exactly what we all need on a week like this.
“COLD ERA”. Let’s make it happen!
