Jeffrey Alexander & The Heavy Lidders


Greetings, Dead Freaks!

We return with another chat with Jeffrey Alexander. He’s previously been on not once, but twice (eps. 32 & 61) and returns here to discuss his latest record, waiting out covid, the end of his Grateful Dead touring days, how he fell into the radio business and more.

The record, released under the name Jeffrey Alexander and The Heavy Lidders, is entitled, “Elixor of Life” and is out now on Centripedal Force Records. You can find it on Bandcamp, of course. You can find a wealth of other releases as well as the subscription link on Jeffrey Alexander’s own Bandcamp page.

Also, don’t sleep on the terrific reissue of Iditarod’s “the Ghost, the Elf, the Cat and the Angel” available from Feeding Tube.
