The Bottleopener S01E05: Andy Best
For the first show of 2013, we spend the hour with Andy Best: he’s the author of the novel The Dao of Wagas Parkour Girl and Yellow Fish Car, and the creator of Shanghai music blog Kungfuology.com. When we asked him “where your fucking band?” he, DJ Cavia, and Kaine quickly formed Astrofuck just to throw it back in our faces.
We’ll also review the film Looper, and tell our favorite unintentional substance abuse anecdotes from Christmas time. Music by Snapline and Astrofuck.
