Friday Video: Shooting at Unarmed Men on Radio Dingbat





Despite them producing my album of the year, I don't really know all that much about Shooting at Unarmed Men. So this interview from a podcast series site in Australia (where the group is based) is interesting to me at least. The live segments are pretty exciting too:

114: Shooting at Unarmed Men

The angry, spiteful, but undeniably comic music of Jon Chapple’s Shooting At Unarmed Men project is the feature of this weeks episode. Jon discusses the recording of his latest album Triptych, his approach to song writing, the bands numerous line-up changes, and his thoughts on life as a musician post-Mclusky. This interview and performance were filmed at the bands August 11 2007 performance at the Rosemount Hotel.

And that other band that Jon Chapple was in? Here's a little taster of their live performance:
