We’re not overthinking it, we’re just happy to be talking to Craig Brown! That’s right folks, Detroit’s seminal rock’n’roll rogue and leader of the Craig Brown Band has joined the Third Men podcast for an all-new extended interview this week – and we know we’re the lucky ones to be able to pick his brain! In 2017 listeners were treated to the excellent LP The Lucky Ones Forget from Craig and his outfit on Third Man Records, though keen listeners will have been aware of his music for years prior in and around the world of Detroit music (and beyond). As described on the TMR website, Craig’s brand of “honky tonk howl” can be heard across many years and many groups, including Terrible Twos and Liquor Store. Craig’s newest music can be heard in conjunction with Kelly Jean Caldwell – including the fantastic new single Manistique Wind (available now!) – and we’re so excited to run down the full length of his amazing career in this episode. What’s gigging with Dwight Yoakam like? How many times did Craig shoot a virtual Hitler in the face with Jack White? What’s the REAL secret to the super-secret recipe to the world’s best tasting hot sauce? What do you mix together behind the bar to craft our podcast’s new specialty drink? So many questions! And we’re delighted to report, so many answers. We’d like to thank Mr. Brown for the great conversation, and we hope you all enjoy it as much as we did. You know that we would podcast all night! I swear that we will podcast all night!
