As many people today would probably attest to, I heard about BOTFLY because of No Funeral Records. The Ontario label has been eyeing this band for years, and recently they locked arms with the band and released their new 12"LP 'Lower Than Love' as well as a 7" split with Dianacrawls. I wanted to get acquainted with Keegan Goodspeed, the vocalist/lyricist/guitarist for BOTFLY so we did this podcast and it was a good ole Canadian time. Things discussed in this podcast: primary hustle, Blink 182, MuchMusic rules Canadian musical history, incestuous scenes, Alexisonfire origin stories, music that is too obscure, messages being left on read, defining Botfly's sound, earplugs, the No Funeral connection, the Pink Lemonade switch, mages, the two-year pressure cycle, lyrical inspiration/exhaustion/evolution, the honorary Botfly member, pushing labels online, revisiting material with breathing room, favourite song on the new record, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Carved Up, Cursed, I Hate Sally, Llynch, Long.Way.Down., and Jeff Tweedy.
