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.
We resurrect our old radio format as SMS welcomes Warren "The Firehose" Franklin back to the hot seat. We talk about his signing to Count Your Lucky Stars records along with how the recording of his forthcoming record went. This episode is also about Joie de Vivre’s last show EVER (yeah right) that will be hosted at Rawkspace in Rockford, IL with bands from all over the midwest. Also, we premiere a new song off of Joie de Vivre’s next (and last) album and a new one from Warren Franklin.
