Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast - Episode 44

Oct. 8 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyThis week Christa and War-N bring back "The Story Behind the Song" to discuss the dreamy track, Last October (from the album Glō). War-N talks about the sparks that ignite each song for him and highlights the unlikely combo of Halou and Alanis Morrisette for this song. Christa talks about the expressive quality of the human voice, as so much more the simple musical notes, and references Tori Amos as a great example. In the OPM segment (other people's music) the duo talk about the amazing Stephanie's Id (their house guests on Friday) and War-N talks about one of his early inspirations, Suzanne Ciani. War-N also solicits ideas for podcast topics from all of you listeners. What do you want to hear on the podcast?

Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast - Episode 34

Jul. 30 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyIn a slightly irritated start to this week's chat, the duo talk about how the tour is NOT a vacation! After they vent a bit, they discuss the construction to begin on their house and the fact that it will get worse before it gets better. This week's song to dissect is "Losing Faith" from the new EP "Before We Stand ... We Crawl". A stranger interrupts the chat flow, and creates a bit of concern, but soon goes away. Christa doesn't really have an OPM other than Thorn Apple (and she shares a Thorn Apple song a bit later in the show) and War-N praises Happy Rhodes and Katherine Schell on their jobs well done in creating beautious tunage. Christa has another weird observation and asks for podcast listeners help to solve it. The episode ends with discussing more about Thorn Apple-ness and hopes for the future.

Thanks to fellow podcasters: Reaching for Lucidity, Podcast for Peace, Three from Leith, Dave's Lounge and The Chillcast with Anji Bee for playing HL tunes over the past few weeks!

Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast - Episode 33

Jul. 23 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyEpisode 33 of Tea with Hungry Lucy is pronounced the shameless self-promotion episode.

Christa's OPM this week is a cover of Yazoo's "Situation" done by War-N's old solo project, Fishtank No.9, and available on the "Thin Edge of the Wedge" compilation CD. More tour discussion follows along with a record number of mentions of booking agent extraordinaire ... ALISA!

Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast - Episode 31

Jul. 10 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyEpisode 31 of Tea with Hungry Lucy starts with a brand new, highly tacky, intro. This week Christa and War-N talk about the impending release of their new EP, "Before We Stand ... We Crawl" and point everyone to the new minisite to hear previews. The pair also discuss their upcoming tour, that has now spread to the entire US. We couldn't leave you Westerners hanging! The story behind the song, is actually the story behind the album this week as Christa talks about the "To Kill a King" album and it's meaning and inspirations. In the OPM segment Christa talks about the wonder of storyteller and performance artist Laurie Anderson (and specifically the song "Coolsville") and War-N talks about Dave Cool's fabulous film "What is INDIE?" ... highly recommended!

We still have a few dates open in our East Coast tour, so please contact Alisa if interested in hosting a Hungry Lucy show in YOUR town. We have also decided to head West on this tour, so you Western US folk ... also contact Alisa!

Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast - Episode 30

Jul. 2 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyHey ... it's time for Tea with Hungry Lucy! Episode 30 features a special new intro from Jasna (Grant Mason's daughter). This week Christa and War-N talk about the awkwardness of writing marketing materials for themselves. The story behind the song focuses on "Can You Hear Me?" (from the album "To Kill a King") in which War-N does some vocal tricks and Christa sounds her glorious self. In this week's OPM Christa talks about Johnny Cash, the movie "Walk the Line" and the forthcoming album "American V". War-N talks about the talents of Azam Ali and her forthcoming album "Elysium for the Brave" as well as Nashville based trio Venus Hum and their new album "The Colors In The Wheel". Ending the episode is the Thorn Apple version of Gary Numan's "M.E." wonderfully produced by Shawn Brice of Bloodwire.

Tea with Hungry Lucy podcast #18 - new HL song/video

Jun. 19 2006

Tea with Hungry LucyIn episode 28 of Tea with Hungry Lucy, Christa Belle & War-N talk about continued work on the forthcoming EP "Before We Stand ... We Crawl". War-N tried to turn the podcast into a reality show by disagreeing with Christa as they discussed the Auralgasms show and chat from last week.

This week's story behind the song sheds a little light on the song "Could it Be?" (from the album Glo) as Christa reveals her creepy stalker side and War-N compares the song to the great band Collide.

In the OPM segment (other people's music) Christa shares her love for singer-songwriter Nick Drake and particularly the album "Pink Moon" and War-N talks about the wonderful gothic, gypsy-folk (like that?) of Voltaire (performing locally on Sat. Jun 24th). Hungry Lucy are looking forward to performing with Voltaire later this year.

War-N launched into a call to action for everyone to stop the US Congress from cutting funding for NPR and PBS. This is important folks, so please do your part!

The podcast ends with a sneak peak of the new song "We Won't Go" (from the forthcoming compilation CD, "Where's Neil When You Need Him?"). Check out Christa's notes on the song and watch the VIDEO HERE.
