Remember Wide Mouth Mason? I never forgot 'em - always loved the band, and I listen to them regularly. In November they're celebrating the 20th anniversary of their album Stew by releasing a special version of it on vinyl, and WMM drummer Safwan Javed called into the show to talk to me about it (and of course, the songs that make his skin vibrate).
Safwan is an incredible musician and a great dude, and we have some good laughs during our chat. He's got some incredible stories from Wide Mouth Mason's days opening up for The Rolling Stones and ZZ Top - having dinner with Charlie Watts, being invited to Billy Gibbons' house for BBQ and homemade guacamole, and more. And what a playlist! Really enjoyed this chat with Safwan, check it out.
Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues
Black Uhuru - Anthem
Kool Moe Dee - I Go To Work
Tinariwen - Cler Achel
Amjad Sabri and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan - Rang
