Hello 41 ! 

Hello to this now vintage chat with Matt Sweeney recorded June 14 2018.

I was first introduced to Matt trough my friend Pete Townsend.

Not THAT Pete but another Pete! 

There’s a rather fantastic band by the name of Super Wolf and Pete plays drums, Matt’s on guitar and Will Oldham aka Bonnie Prince Billy is singing. 

It’s hard to not be moved by that music and every element is crucial to the buzz. 

Who’s that amazing guitarist you ask? Yep, it’s Matt Sweeney.

Let’s have a quick celebratory tour around some of this lads achievements!

He’s been in bands like Skunk, Chavez and Super Wolf

He’s played on records with Johnny Cash, Cat Power, Andrew W. K., Run the Jewels, Eagles of Death Metal and maybe more

He’s produced .. oh boy he’s produced!

He’s lent a crucial touch to the making of the Red Dead Redemption 2 soundtrack. 

(This is the then secret stuff we couldn’t talk about!)

In 2016, Sweeney toured with Iggy Pop and Josh Homme to support their album Post Pop Depression.

He’s been interview by the Epic Marc Maron (EP 637)
