VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Ahab’s Ghost
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 talks to heavy metal band Ahab’s Ghost (Jake Hess, Sam Wallman, and Joe Widen), whose most recent album “Curse” came out over Thanksgiving. They have been a band for over a decade now. They discussed how Ahab’s Ghost came to be, wrecking Battle of the Bands in high school, their new record, listening to full albums, and isolation cabinets.
