The Watt from Pedro Show with Rob Cambre

A pretty cool meetings of the minds as Mike Watt (Minutemen, Firehose, The Stooges) hosts his webased radio show and interviews a friend of ours Mr. Rob Cambre (Rough 7, Anxious Sound)  on his Watt from Pedro show which you can stream here.
The Watt from Pedro Show with Rob Cambre
Watt plays a lot of music (setlist is below) and Rob and Mike reminisce on their first meeting, Watt being scared to talk to Richard Hell and how Rob's obsession of overtones/distortion got him into playing guitar.

It is a long show (3 Hours!) with a lot of tunes and chatting. Fair warning if you are unfamiliar with Watt or Cambre, but the music presented here fits both of their styles, all over the map ranging from experimental noise to country hoedowns to rock. To be honest Mike isn't the best interviewer but Watt does do a good job explaining the lesser known artists he plays, lots of variety there from around the world.

For RtBE's money it is really cool to hear a lot of the experimental jazz Rob is playing such as "Kobo". I am pumped for Rob having interviewed him as well for Glide and hung with him in his home town of New Orleans. Congrats!
