The Rebel Beat 086: Saltwater Hank’s Stories From the North West

 

Welcome back to the latest edition of The Rebel Beat!

Our special guest on the podcast this month is Jeremy Pahl, aka. Saltwater Hank. Jeremy is an Indigenous Gitga’at bluegrass artist from northern so-called BC in Canada. His music comes out of an unexpected place, coming from a heavy-metal background himself. But we talked about his (surprisingly easy) transition from metal to bluegrass, Indigenous environmental politics out west, and some of the stories that have inspired his creative ballads. You can stream or purchase the new Saltwater Hank album “Stories From the North West” here!

In our Turn It Up Segment, we pay respect to Jalal Mansur Nuriddin of The Last Poets. Sadly, Nuriddin passed away at the beginning of June. Sometimes known as the “Grandfather of Hip-Hop”, Nuriddin and The Last Poets helped to pioneer a sound in the late 1960s that fused jazz, soul, and poetry reflective of the Black Power movement.

Welcome back to another podcast of The Rebel Beat – your weekly dose of musical anarchy and class war on the dance floor!

Our good friend Frank from Submedia.TV was back in studio this week to spin a wicked set (Alas & Savage Fam, Comrade, Run the Jewels, etc.), to chat about COP21 in Paris, and a recent Line 9 shutdown that he documented (check the video below!). We also hear an interview with the brilliant independent climate journalist Dahr Jamail. Continue reading
