About the show

Playing tracks by

R.L. Burnside, Sonny & The Sunsets, Dinosaur jr, Junior kimbrough, Johnny Farmer and more.

Almost a year and a half ago now my friend Craig came round to record a podcast about early blues which we, somewhat unimaginatively, called the Craigcast.

A great deal of that conversation centred around Fat Possum Records (Wikipedia), and how Matthew Johnson struggled for years to keep it trundling along, despite being near bankruptcy for most of the time. It wasn't until soul legend Solomon Burke decided to release his comeback record with them that they finally got out of the financial woods with some finality.

Craig's interest in the label is based around an obsession with old blues music, but from a modern indie kid's perspective Fat Possum are still one of the best record labels in the world - The Walkmen, AA Bondy, Andrew Bird, Sonny and the Sunsets, Band of Horses, The Black Keys, Dinosaur Jr., The Felice Brothers, Wavves and Yuck all release with them. So this is absolutely all about Fat Possum and their bands.
