Kim Coates, La Force + Tom Morello

The Strombo Show’s four-hours of algorithm free musical exploration is here for you this Sunday evening.

Tom Morello brings the rage for a retrospective exploration of then and now and his latest project, “The Atlas Underground.” With George, he digs into preparing his sonic conspiracy project in quiet, the journey to create a new genre of rock’n’roll, the modern political turmoil, learning to appreciate the Eagles, his EDM crush, curating the project with Marcus Mumford, Vic Mensa, Wu-Tang, K.Flay, the Rage Against The Machine return performance at Coachella, coaching his children’s little league team, the first song he learned to play, creating a live show with Roger Waters’ artistic director, believing that Rage Against The Machine should exist, the legacy of Chris Cornell, reading “The History of America in Ten Strikes”, the dismantling of labour unions, Kavanaugh, the #MeToo movement, his 95-year-old mother’s friendship with Bono and more.

La Force is the musical brainchild of Ariel Engle from Broken Social Scene and AroarA. To commemorate the nocturnal electronic sounds of her self-titled debut, she brings her songs to the House and is joined by her friend Snowblink to cover an Antony and the Johnsons standard. Let us not forget Martha Wainwright‘s delivery of her Snowblink cover on last week’s episode. The circle continues.

Kim Coates has returned with the second season of Bad Blood, so it only seemed fitting that Kim and George went in on the history of the Montreal drug trafficking business that the show was inspired by. In conversation, they explore his career, Sons Of Anarchy, choices, mistakes and the advice he received from Nicolas Cage on his first film.

There’ll also be appearances from our friends in Hippo Campus and Gladys Kyotungire to talk about the upcoming World Food Day and what you can do with the World Food Programme.
