In this episode we cover tracks spanning his wonderfully unique career and variety of styles – rocker, singer-songwriter, early new wave, blues-roots-rock, Americana before there was such a term, and much more..
So sit back and discover or rediscover the brilliance of Mr John Hiatt.
On this Six-Pack episode Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast and music business veteran John Bolsar join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to school him on Simple Minds. In the United States, Simple Minds are largely known for their absolutely perfect 80s pop masterpiece, Don’t You Forget About Me, but that’s not particularly representative of their career or sound or abilities as musicians and songwriters (in fact, they didn’t even write that song.) They’ve been experimental, synth-poppy, big bandy, and much more – mixing in a variety of influences into their work through their four decade’s long career. And we get into all of it with the three picks each that John and Jon are bringing.
So won’t you come see about the synth-pop and sometimes not-synth-pop brilliance of Simple Minds.
