VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Harrison Colby
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 Harrison Colby, who plays in punk band Sex Scenes as well as power pop band Rexxx. He’s also got an avant-garde solo project The Beat Index from which his debut record “Volume One: Juvenilia” came out last summer. Previously, he played in NO/NO and The Delphines. They discussed Harry’s beginnings playing bands in high school, growing up in Richmond, VA, his krautrock/post-punk influences in The Beat Index, dropping the Rexxx record right before quarantine, and our mutual love of ice cream.
