Emil Amos' Drifter's Sympathy

Emil Amos tells disturbing and often humiliating stories about growing up in a small town in the 90’s with co-host Jonah Bayer. The series generally outlines the birth and trials of the ‘outsider’, a classic loner archetype in all cultures and literature. The stories begin back when Emil and Duncan Trussell met 20 years ago and bonded as LSD devotees while following various questionable gurus in their early years. Every other episode digs into the archaeology of lesser known music history to illuminate the outsider from another angle.

*THE TERRORISTS*
‘The Terrorists’ digs down into the music that shapes our minds when we first become indoctrinated in the language of the punk spirit. Another version of the loner/outsider, The TERRORIST anticipates their marginalization and amps up the aggression for a preemptive attack. Twisting the knife back into the gatekeepers and mutating the artistic frontier before others can theorize on what’s coming next… This cast features special spots on :: * Captain Beefheart * Sun City Girls * The messy birth of Sebadoh * Truman’s Water * The Mothers of Invention * Gong & Tomorrow’s Gift… The Terrorist movement rolls on forever in newer forms,, but this is a brief reminder of some of its most fertile periods,, always necessary to re-visit again or pass down to the Youth of Today.🌷
