VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Action Jelly
One of our contributors, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
For this episode, Ben sat down with two members of recently-dissolved indie rock band Action Jelly, Raymond Allen and Josh Ehlke. They put out an EP in 2018 called “Wipe Yr Tears.” Josh also plays drums in “passive-aggressive punk” band Versio Curs. They discussed their musical origins, hard seltzer, the new Eastside DIY venue Fat Charlie’s (where Josh lives), people disappointing you, and being a yes man.
