Gabba Gabba Huh?

Mike Phillips

Welcome to the Gabba Gabba Huh? Podcast, featuring the best of The Carolinas' punk, alternative, hard rock, and heavy metal from the past 40 years. While the main podcast (Gabba Gabba Huh? Talks) will be more converstional and interview style, while "Gabba Gabba Huh? Radio" will focus on the music, with some background information on the songs and bands featured. Most songs will be digitized from original vinyl, cassette, or CD sources, thus the quality will vary, but will be rather true to the original form.

Talks! Episode 64 - Otis Hughes (Animal Bag/M4 Messenger/The Mystery Plan/Skynoceros)
This week I took a trip for coffee and then sat down with Otis Hughes to talk about his history playing in such bands as Animal Bag, M4 Messenger, Poor Blue, Skynoceros, The Mystery Plan, Gideon Smith & The Dixie Damned, Overlord, and more, as well as a new, not-yet-named band to debut soon! We talk a lot about being in LA at the end of the eighties, how sometimes a recording deal ends because of new bosses, the influence of Spinal Tap, the loss of bandmates, and paying tribute to them by still playing the songs from time to time. This is part two of my Animal Bag series, so look for part three later in the summer when I get Luke and Otis together as they prepare for an upcoming acoustic Animal Bag (or "Half Bag") show in Shelby!Animal Bag: Messenger: Mystery Plan: Blue: from GGHT64:Animal Bag - MundaniaAnimal Bag - Sugar DaddyAnimal Bag - Another HatAnimal Bag - Irritation NetworkM4 Messenger - NippleThe Mystery Plan - AlwaysPoor Blue - WastegroundSkynoceros - Creature Comforts (Live at Tommy’s Pub)Animal Bag - Simon SaysVisit Gabba Gabba Huh?
