This episode is pretty funked up! I finally got caught up again with our friend Mr. Joe Simpson AKA Eldridge Gravy, namesake of Eldridge Gravy and The Court Supreme. The band recently released a brand new disc and are playing several dates in and around the region.
Joe was my very first guest when SMI Radio was in its more primitive stage. If you want to see how primitive, check it out here. A lot has happened in Joe’s life since their first album and our first conversation almost 2 years ago.
We will be playing some tracks off the new record and we discuss the band’s musical influences, direction and the artists that we love.
In the second half of the show, I synced up via phone with Brooklyn, New York, New Wave, R&B, Rock and Hip Hop artist, Theophilus London. Mr. London is currently on the West Coast portion of his U.S. Tour. He is in town this week to play a show at Neumos before heading down to Portland. We talk about some of his influences and what is next for this talented and diverse artist.
SMI Radio can be heard each week…
