Episode 5 - Ben Verellen
Now Playing: Episode 5 - Ben Verellen - You might know him from his band Helms Alee, or his company Verellen Amplifiers. You might know him from his reunion shows with his old band Harkonen - but you probably don't know him from any of Harkonen's original shows, which he describes, simply, as "bummerly." Then again, you might know him as Botch's little brother; the roadie with the pink fanny pack crouched behind the drumset with a homemade light show and a 40oz. of OE. Ben Verellen is all of these things, and a real nice guy to hang out with to boot. Ben and I delve into some tour stories, and also get to philosophyzin' about the nature of The Tour, and how not to let it bring you down. This podcast features music from Helms Alee's amazing second album Weatherhead, available at www.hydrahead.com or at most fine independent record stores.
