An Australian keynote interview goes deep into Stones Throw lore with Peanut Butter Wolf and J Rocc (video)
And speaking of Stones Throw Records…
At this point in the game I feel like I’m pretty well versed in Stones Throw Records lore. I’ve watched pretty much every interview, documentary video, etc. you could possibly imagine, so much so that sometimes a lot of these sit downs with Peanut Butter Wolf just seem more and more like going through the motions. Yet surprisingly, I found there was a lot to still learn from this 1 keynote in Australia. Rather than a brief over view of the label’s history, the interviewer pulls out select releases and tracks and asks for Wolf and J Rocc to go in depth on each one. The highlight being some of the lesser known releases (Jonti) and some of the A&R-ing that went into them. A very informative and amusing 1 hour long discussion.
Please note: there are tons of audio disparages between the interview and them previewing the music, so get ready to ride the volume as you watch this. You’ve been warned!
