This was a tragic show…excellent music (I love Deep Cuts) made bittersweet as it will forever be remembered as the show where my second recorder (NJB3) bit the dust. I am eternally grateful for your workhorse attitude of never complaining (I’ve heard of NJB3’s shutting down for no reason). We caught many excellent shows in the two years we were together. Sadly, we caught our share of bad shows as well. Thank you my friend.

On June 2, 2008, Jeff “The Taper” Mewbourn and Justin “Beatbots Founder” Blemly were interviewed on WYPR’s Maryland Morning program on 88.1FM in Baltimore. Here it is for your listening pleasure. The interview is about 12 minutes long and features snippets from three of Jeff’s live recordings: Double Dagger, Small Sur and Oxter.

Hear Jeff wax sentimental about getting involved with the Baltimore underground music scene in his mid 40s and Justin try to explain the message behind the Baltimore City Paper’s “Best Song of 2007″ and the definition of “post hardcore-punk” without sounding like a total idiot.

WYPR
Beatbots AV Club: An Audio Archive of Baltimore’s Up-and-Coming Bands
Much of the brilliance of Baltimore’s independent music scene exists beyond the view of a casual music fan. Semi-secretive performances in warehouses, lofts and basements are often the norm for the city’s young artists. An online forum called Beatbots AV Club is recording Baltimore’s underground concerts, but not for posterity; it’s just for the love of the music. Tom talks with Beatbots founder Justin Blemly and AV Club Chief Engineer ‘Jeff the Taper’ Mewbourn.
