STACK SESSIONS: Bear Ceuse

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Last Friday we were joined in the studio by Bear Ceuse, aka Cameron Matthews. He played a few songs for us, and we discussed awesome St. Louis bands and his plans for moving to NYC. My two favorite songs (“O-K-L-A-EE-OHMA” and “I Saw It Beating”) are posted below for your viewing pleasure. Cameron has also decided that he’d like to host a show on KWUR this summer, so keep your ears open for his voice coming to you over the airwaves in the next weeks.

Please also explore KWUR’s new youtube channel. If you have any video’s from KWUR’s illustrious past, please shoot me an email at local@kwur.com and we’ll get those videos posted.

Looking Back: Eulogies + Bad Veins Interviews

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

A couple of months ago, then-promotions director Amanda and I sat down and had a conversation with Eulogies and Bad Veins when they came through town. We recorded both interviews and, like many interviews with KWUR (coughNirvanacough), they sat on a dusty hard drive (mine) for months before someone (me) even thought about letting them see the light of day. My laziness aside, I finally got around to editing the audio and now present them to you, faithful readers, for your listening pleasure:

Eulogies Interview

We and guitarist/vocalist Peter Walker discuss their new record “Here Anonymous,” the Twitter phenomenon, and Scrabble. Also he tells us we are great, and we return the compliment.

Bad Veins Interview

Ben, Sebastien, Amanda and I discuss just about everything. Highlights include: how they’re going to name the new record, crazy shows, and their invention company.

(both interviews took place at an Imo’s, hence the background noise).

((oh yeah, I’m sitting on a bunch of other interviews – Vivian Girls, Cut Off Your Hands, Meat Puppets – which I want to get out soon. I won’t promise anything because if I do it’ll probably never get done. But keep your eyes peeled))

Jon Hardy & The Public

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

So we’ll be going live with JH&TP pretty soon (6PM CST), and in the process of getting ready for the interview, I stumbled upon this:

Little Criminals from Jon Hardy & The Public on Vimeo.

The song is a cover of Randy Newman’s Little Criminals, and the video is one of the most visually arresting things I have seen in quite some time. Be sure we’ll be talking about that, among other things. So….. tune in!

Kurt Cobain Quotable

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Just stumbled on this in our archive:

“It’s too bad you don’t have a choice what kind of car – if there was an electric car out there or whatever – alternate fuel car. i’d buy one. no problem. they don’t even give you that option. it sucks” – Kurt Cobain Interview, “Sample Magazine”, November 1991

IN-STUDIO TODAY (FRIDAY) 4PM CST: RON JEREMY INTERVIEW

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Tune into KWUR (www.kwur.com) online (or 90.3 FM as the radio dial flies) for a chat with Ron Jeremy at 4PM CST. At 6PM CST, he will be debating Pastor Craig Gross as part of the Great Porn Debate in Graham Chapel. KWUR will likely cover this event live as well, barring any last-minute legal issues.

Upon hearing the debate news, my brother exclaimed, “they’re letting Ron Jeremy speak in a church??!”

From what I’ve heard, the chancellor is pretty dodgy about sex-related talk on campus. I’m sure he will not be gracing us with his presence, despite Ron Jeremy’s eloquent nature of public speech (must’ve learned it in porn or something…)

p.s. Pastor Gross: friendliest pedosmile ever
