FEATURES INTERVIEW, LIVE PERFORMANCES
AND CURATED PLAYLIST
“Making a semi-conscious step to not really care about being part of any world of music allowed us to do what we wanted to.”
– Ted Leo
Osiris Podcasts releases the third episode of a new, multidimensional podcast series, Past, Present, Future, Live! featuring Ted Leo. Since the early 90’s, Ted Leo has been one of the most progressive forces in independent music. From his band Chisel to Ted Leo and the Pharmacists to his solo work, he’s always stayed true to his punk roots, musically and politically. In this episode, he talks to RJ about the music that influenced him over the years, how his style has evolved, and the ‘seatbelt removing moments’ that feed him creatively. Ted discusses his decision to use Kickstarter to fund his last album, The Hanged Man, and why ‘deep collaboration makes you throw out your ego’.
At the end of the episode, Ted performs “Rave On” by Buddy Holly, “The Nice People Argument”, and “William Weld In The 21st Century”. Video of the live performance is on YouTube and the playlist from this episode can be found on Spotify and includes 10 songs from Ted’s Front of House playlist.
