Episode 268: (Bonus) Kevin Kendrick (of A Big Yes and a Small No)
2008’s Jesus That Looks Terrible on You was a delightful debut from a promising New York indie pop band. In the intervening decade, however, things have been fairly quiet on for A Big Yes and a Small No, aside from a single hard to find EP. I jumped at the idea of interviewing frontman Kevin Kendrick, if only to discover what, precisely he’d been up to for the past 10 years. With a new record Mise En Abyme just over the horizon, Kendrick sat down after work one day, equipped with several lifetimes worth of stories. There’s the heroin addiction, the kidnapping, a false imprisonment — all things he casually touches upon as he gets to more important subjects like the topic of songwriting. It’s a fascinating and fittingly manic conversation that runs the gamut from addiction to coming to grips with one’s own mortality.
