Over the ultimate weekend in June, as I’ve talked about many instances all through my varied websites, I had the pleasure of attending the Haunted America Conference within the paranormal sizzling spot of Alton, Illinois. Last 12 months was my first attendance and so this 12 months there have been a number of acquainted faces like Sherri Brake, Rosemary Ellen Guiley and, of course, our host Troy Taylor.

Little did I understand on the time that assembly Mike and Wendy from the rock band Sunspot would change into such an honor. Since the convention I’ve achieved some analysis on them, as I do with everybody I meet. (It is my area of interest and fervour, naturally) After listening to their music, testing their podcast, and studying their weblog I used to be fairly impressed. 

The group, who additionally contains Ben Jaeger, started its journey contemporary out of faculty in 1996. Very early on the Madison, Wisconsin “power pop” group embraced know-how and, as a result of they did so, had been in a position to safe an everlasting area of interest within the music trade. Their sound is intimately tied to all issues paranormal and mysterious:

“[Sunspot’s] music is sunny on one side and dark on the other. Quirky songs ripe with metaphors blur the lines between the paranormal and pop culture, finding inspiration from the likes of sci-fi writer Arthur C. Clarke and occultism Aleister Crowley.”

The band’s potential to embrace almost each style empowers them to attraction to many audiences. 

“The band members…are not ashamed to admit that their musical influences range from Queen and Iron Maiden to Brad Paisley and Weezer to Green Day and Social Distortion.”

Mike and Wendy not solely work very onerous at sustaining Sunspot’s enjoyable musical productions, however additionally they like to do podcasts. From my analysis I’ve found that they’ve achieved nicely over 300 episodes. Most of the early ones had been broadcasted from their tour van and, moreover, they had been produced throughout the days when many people had by no means even heard of a podcast.

I’m very honored that Mike agreed to have me on his present, “See You On The Other Side.”

I had rather a lot of enjoyable throughout the interview, as I continued to study his many and numerous paranormal pursuits and nice sense of humor.

Every podcast episode has a weblog submit behind it and the group takes the time to jot down a track for each as nicely. The lyrics comply with the podcast theme. Naturally, episode 107 relies on my e book Limestone… Here is their track – I really hope you get pleasure from!!!
