Rough Cutt (Full Band)

Podcast Audio Interview: Rough Cutt (Full Band)

[Apple iTunes] [Anchor] [Stitcher] [TuneIn] [Google Podcasts] [Podchaser]

My interview with the brand new Rough Cutt lineup: Rockin’ Dave Alford, Chris “The Count” Hager, Darren Housholder, Jeff Buehner, and Steven St. James before and after their first ever live show played together as a band, Black Friday in Portland, Oregon, November 29th, 2019.

The new Rough Cutt brought the house down, sounding tight, polished, and as if they’d been playing the same songs together as long as Rockin’ Dave and Chris Hager have. Before and after the show, I had a chance to sit down with all the members except Steve St. James and talk about the band, their future, whether there will be new music from Rough Cutt, and some of the stories from their long careers.

Hear music from Rough Cutt, Love/Hate, and War & Peace on the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show with Pariah Burke here: .
