    -----------
    Exciting to meet up with Mr. Michael Morley of The Dead C, Gate, 2 Foot Flame, and much more. Legendary New Zealand music and art figure, I had a chat with Michael at a Gate show with Ramleh in San Francisco. We touch on his art career, other music projects, daily life in Port Chalmers, and even the recently departed David Bowie.
    Special thanks to Tim Leanse for assistance with the interview at the Elbo Room. https://gatemm.bandcamp.com/

    If this is your first time checking out the show, welcome! I created this hourlong FCC clean version of the show for KGPC 96.9 FM (aka 9th Floor Radio at Peralta College) in Spring 2015. I made some bleep sounds for the swearing and tried to pick the chunks that I found the most interesting. These are my talks with Calvin Johnson (K Records, Beat Happening), Ron Lynch (Adventure Time, Home Movies), Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile), Mark Gergis (Sham Palace, Porest, Sublime Frequencies), and Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu). You can listen to these in their unedited glory from the same place you got this episode.
    This episode lead to a short-lived (three episodes!) live radio show called Well Futile that is still housed over at KGPC http://www.9thfloorradio.com/wellfutile . I had to end the WF show due to some personal crises (aka a bunch of my records being stolen) but I feel great being back to this long-form format. Since April I also launched a podcast about documentaries with Paco Romane called 'Sup Doc, so check that out as well.
    http://supdocpodcast.com
    Theme music is "After God" by High Castle.

    Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu)

    Zum Podcast Episode 23 - Jamie Stewart
     -----------
    Jamie Stewart is nearly indistinguishable from his 15+ year moniker performing as Xiu Xiu. Though he pals around with Prurient and Merzbow, he's finding new paths to blaze, taking on a Twin Peaks tribute and just trying to make it as a touring musician in the post-physical age. Avid traveller with an undeniable work ethic making challenging music for the mass-less. We talk whilst sitting in a car in LA's Koreatown on a sweltering afternoon.
    *Congratulations to mutual friend David Horvitz and Zanna Gilbert on the birth of their daughter Ela Melanie in the back of an Uber.
    *Oakland fire benefits: May 9th at 924 Gilman, AK Press gofundme, Shipwreck Studio, crowdrise fundraiser for displaced residents.
