The SECOND drunk show, in a ROW, because after the first one was done, we didn’t realize that maybe we should pull back and get a little perspective, and think about what we just did.  Be prepared for us to be not QUITE as smooth and non-microphone-chomping as we usually are.  I (Zen) am pretty sure I don’t remember much of the last half of this show.  I might finish a smallish bottle of something in an evening if/when I’m getting my swerve on, but not usually in the course or two hours, WHILE drinking other things.

The music is fine though, it’s just us that’s messed up.

Don’t forget to join the Unknown Origins Facebook Group so you can hear about new shows as they arrive.

Against our better judgment and the advice of our friends and families, we decided to celebrate the new studio (in the HEART of the East Siyeeed), the new decade, and the new photographic evidence that is coming to light, and do shows 32 and 33 while having the merest whiff of an alcoholic beverage, in order to loosen our tongues and our minds, that we may bestow upon our listening audience the wisdom that we have acquired over the ages.

Translation: We got drunk during these two shows, couldn’t shut up, and there pictures AND video of the event, thanks to the mighty eye and steady hand of Frank Julian Roberts.

Duncan Shields, Johnny Vancouver, and Zen Render bring the noise, and whatever happens from here on in, remember, we were drunk.  Maybe it’s the best idea we’ve ever had, maybe it’s the worst show we’ve ever done, but hey, it was the FIRST show of 2010, and it was only a month late.

Oh, and if you thought we liked to drop the odd f-bomb  ?  You’re in for a bit of a shock.

Unknown Origins Episode 32 – final talkybit from Helianthus Photography on Vimeo.

Here we are once again.  Jonny Vancouver, Zen Render, and Duncan Shields once again bring you the new, the old, the weird, and the wonderful. We also bring you music in between the bouts of silliness.

Get some headphones on if you’re at work, or make the sure the kids are outta the room, or you’re going to spend half of Xmas dinner explaining where little Timmy learned the f-word, (and why he says it with a Jonny Vancouver Irish accent).

You can download or link the 80-something minute show here, or use the various nefarious links and podcast downloaders and I don’t know what you kids use these days with your tartanglers and hornswagglers made by the iPoms or whatever they are.

And get off my lawn.

Summer 09, and we’ve got that slightly hung-over vibe.  Funny.  Little punchy.  Tired, but still diggin’ the tunes.  Your host lineup this week is Ducan, Zen, and then Jonny in each set of three.  Enjoy (but keep the kids from learning the colourful language).
