VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Daniel James
Our Music Director, 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.
Today, Ben talks to Daniel James, who is frontman of glam punk band Indonesian Junk. Their latest record “Living in a Nightmare” came out in March. They discussed Daniel’s inception into the Milwaukee music scene in the early 2000s, Indonesian Junk’s founding, making their new record work during quarantine, the singles compilation they dropped last summer, and writing songs about how scared we all are right now.
