Fresh off an exhaustive European tour, the Colonel Kurtz of Klezmer, Mr. Geoff Berner, sets out again on a frozen lap of the Hard Core Logo circuit, that long, lonely highway run through the western prairies that has tested the metal of traveling Vancouver musicians since the dawn of time.
Our conversation with Geoff, for the podcast below, ranged over a wide variety of topics: the list of recommended (and not so recommended) power stage-moves for accordionists, the child-soothing virtues of Ceausescu bed sheets, the unbearable lightness of Norwegians, and the future of voodoo calliope dubstep, to name but a few. Listen, learn, enjoy.

PS. I didn’t really mean that less-than-kind thing I said about Alan Lomax.
