There's been a lot of interest in the guys who provide the title music for our podcast, so we thought we'd write a short profile on them and provide some links for you to go and listen to their songs in full.
Freeway Park are a litpunk band from Seattle, WA. Started in a small room in Fremont in 2013, the band was "originally conceived as a noise-and-spoken-word project, [but] it's since evolved to include the occasional riff, hook, and structure."
The band is made up of Adam Muhgrunk on guitar, John Jernigan on bass, Patrick Gill on drums and Graham Isaac on vocals. Graham was a student at Swansea University in 2007–08, and it was during this time that he co-founded The Crunch – a spoken word night that ran in the Uplands area of the city until 2012, and then regenerated into this online magazine in 2015.
Following the completion of his degree Graham returned to the USA, where he continues to curate and host spoken word nights. A collection of his poems – Filthy Jerry's Guide to Parking Lots – was published by Babel/Salvage in 2013.
Freeway Park were kind enough to let us use their track 'Little Fear of Drowning' as the title music for The Crunch podcast. You can listen to it in full by using the embedded SoundCloud player above.
But don't just stop there! Check out the other songs on their SoundCloud profile too – and like them/follow them/become their friend on Facebook and Twitter.
