Ep. #56: Dallas Good

Dallas Good is a tremendously gifted multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, Ontario who is best known for singing and playing guitar in the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, the Sadies. The hardest working, most prolific band I know, the Sadies have been conquering this planet one town at a time for almost 20 years, collaborating with a long list of luminaries and making their own mark with each new album better than the last. Their new record is called Internal Sounds and is available now courtesy of Outside Records in Canada and Sadie plays shows in Hamilton and London, Ontario this week with more dates to follow. Here Dallas and I talk about him producing the new Sadies LP, how it compares to working with people like Steve Albini and Gary Louris, how the band dynamic is tested when he’s the boss, why some new Sadie songs sound like the Band, the band’s punk pedigree and whether punks enjoy Sadie as much as folk festival people do, how the road can be weird, the time Dallas broke his leg and missed a show in Saskatoon, working with Buffy Sainte-Marie, what’s up with Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Career Suicide, and the Good Family, the song “STORY 19,” and more.

This week:

Is Mayor Rob Ford beyond sympathy? Have these allegations of substance abuse humanized him in some way? Musician, author, and Toronto citizen Dave Bidini says no and pretty much no.

 

 

 

 
A new supergroup called the Good Family crosses generations, bringing the Good Brothers and the Sadies together for a new LP and shows at the Starlight in Waterloo on May 30 and the Casbah in Hamilton on June 1. I speak to Bruce Good and his son Travis Good about this.
