Pickwick

  • Listen:
    Pickwick On World Cafe Hear three songs from Pickwick's debut album and the story behind the Seattle band's reinvention.
Seattle’s Pickwick Started Exciting Everybody When They Stopped Boring Themselves!

June 18, 2013 - The first incarnation of Pickwick was centered on Galen Disston’s acoustic guitar strummed songs.

The leader of Pickwick now agrees that he was getting kind of bored with his own music until a not so subtle shift happened. The band worked on a new song “Hacienda Motel” as a unit, a rock band with Galen as the lead singer. And crowds immediately noticed. You will too. The band’s debut full length Can’t Talk Medicine is a very fine tight album. We welcome them into our studio.

This session originally aired on May 1, 2013.
