Happy New Year! 2023 was a great year for us, and we've got some extremely cool stuff planned for 2024. So let's start things off hot right away!
This week we present a completely new type of episode for us - "Behind the Sound". These episodes will focus on the gear and tech of a band to understand how they achieve their distinct sound. For our first installment, we sped time with There, There - a tribute to Radiohead.
We first met Joe, Colin, Ben, Cory and Charles (and the drum machine) at Musikfest 2022, and loved what they did so much, they became the first tribute band to be interviewed on our show in September of that year. Check out that interview here: https://nextfavband.com/2022/09/15/th...
After catching a few more of their shows, we collectively had the thought and the interest to do a show that focused on the various elements that get them in the neighborhood of the iconic Radiohead sound. We hear about their effects pedals, their pick-ups, sample pads, chaos pads, "rackzilla", and much more!
The guys were kind enough to allow me to attend their load-in and sound check for a show they were doing at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem, PA. Watching them get everything in its right place on stage and then testing it all to make sure it sounded great was a sight to behold. So we documented and shared it all in condensed form here for you.
Joe and Cory and the rest of There, There even provide additional insight and context on some of the various elements we'll be discussing as well as chat about the history of Radiohead as a band.
Whether you like Radiohead's music or not, you'll be sure to enjoy this dive in to how a band sets up for a complex show like this, and what all goes in to creating the music for your earholes.
Come with us as we go "Behind the Sound" with There, There - a tribute to Radiohead.
As always, our hope is to bring you "your next favorite band". If you tuned in today because you already knew this musician - thank you very much!
