Zorch Radio Episode 148: The Legend Of Jesse James


Zorch Radio Episode 148: The Legend Of Jesse James
Airdate: Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

TONS of psychobilly in this evening’s episode, mostly all from the vaults of legendary Seattle musician, Jesse James. Jesse is the current ringleader of Appalachian-Death-Polka band, The Wages of Sin, formerly the kingpin of Seattle psychobillies The Spectres, and was also an “undisputed king of American psychobilly” as a founding member of Los Gatos Locos. The All New KGRG FM really didn’t know what hit it.

Jesse came ready to talk about the upcoming gig at the The 2Bit with CanadiAmericana act Big John Bates and Seattle trashy weirdos Bottlenose Koffins on Friday June 7th. (Facebook Event Page)

Wages Gig

And while we did played the rare Mick 14 didgeridoo track in Episode 111, and his little known surf-rap group in Episode 69, we had never actually played a full track from Thee Tiger Armies. Until tonight about halfway through the episode!
