Now – as you probably know, as well as the usual platforms (this site, soundcloud, iTunes/Apple) you can now get to Sweetman Podcast on Spotify – follow it there and have it saved in your Spotify library.
But in fact this was not my first meeting with Kev – we go way back. Back to when we were both in the same covers band in Wellington some 20-mumble years ago as earnest young university lads.
When Kev moved overseas we kept via occasional emails and then social media. I knew he was involved in some music stuff. He knew I was writing about music. Then he reached out to share some of the new music. He was making it under a pseudonym…
Now Kev is back in Wellington. He’s a family man and music is a hobby – though it’s going well with Anxiety Club. They tour. They record. They don’t just confine themselves to the practice-room.
We talked about all of this and a lot more – including mental health and failing at your creative pursuits. We had a lot of laughs, there’s a few in-jokes (though I think we explain most of them) and as silly or indulgent as it might be at one or two moments (almost always my fault) I think there are some refreshing, candid views offered here (that’s Kev!)
This was a great way to catch up and it’s a really great story I think.
I hope you enjoy this.
