Several of the performers featured were interviewed on our show this year, and even more have contributed or been interviewed in the past — so the fun doesn’t have to stop here, if you dig into the back catalogue!
- Kyle Kinane, from his new album Death of the Party
- Sarah Gee and Nate DuFort
- Paul F. Tompkins from the Sir, You Have Fooled Me Twice EP
- Karen Kilgariff
- Kasper Hauser
