Ryan Stasik (with Kevin Cassels joining for an Oldschool Umph chat)

This week’s episode centers around a chat that our producer Rob Turner had with Ryan Stasik (Doom Flamingo, Umphrey’s McGee) and music expert Kevin Cassels (Mother Vinegar, Pleasure To Burn) about the early days of Umphrey’s McGee. The trio discusses pre-Umphrey’s bands, how material evolved, line-up changes, specific shows, songwriting ethos and many other elements of those halcyonic early days. Since the conversation took place in Asheville this February, the COVID19 pandemic has shut down most aspects of society, including concerts. So, for the introduction to this episode, Seth Weiner and Rob call Ryan to discuss how he is currently finding inspiration during this confusing moment in time.
