Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
Our guests this episode are Jim Hanke and Jeff Grabowski of Milwaukee indie band El Oso. They have reunited for a series of dates this month including one in Rockford, IL at Pirate Ninja Print Shop and another in Chicago opening up the Felix Culpa farewell show at the Metro on December 9, 2011. We’re joined by special guest Paul Karnatz all the way from Prague! Download the El Oso catalog at eloso.bandcamp.com
