This time around we decided to give you a bit of a longer episode. Eric from Parapony Picture Shows, the team that gives us the web series Hurtin. We talk a bit about the show, it's origins, influences and everything else that came to mind. We did have to contend with a band playing in the upstairs studio while we talked, so just a heads up that there is some backround noise. We'll say it's atmospheric. You can visit their website at hurtin.ca or check them out on their YouTube channel
Also check them out on Twitter , Facebook and even Instagram.
The songs you heard in this episode are: Heftone Banjo Orchestra - Maple Leaf Rag (intro), Flight of the Conchords - Rock the Party, Saddlesore Co-op Society - Cash Climb, Beastie Boys - 5 Piece Chicken Meal, Beardo - John Lennon, Saddlesore Co-op Society - Oh Pappa, Saddlesore Co-op Society - Hurtin Theme (outro)

This was originally the 3rd and final episode of the Pagan Place's pilot project. Troy gave a great interview and his songs are still just as solid now as they were then. We thought about doing some editing to clean up the sound and take out some hiss (we've come a long way since that day a few years ago), but decided to leave everything just as it is.
So for your listening pleasure the Long lost 3rd episode of The Pagan Place Sessions.
Troy played a set of all originals. The tunes you heard were: "Heaven Take Me Home", "Can't Tell Me Why" and "Shut"
