On today's episode, I talk to musician Joe Jack Talcum.
Originally from Wagontown, PA, Joe Genaro AKA Joe Jack Talcum is
the guitarist and co-lead singer of the seminal punk band The Dead
Milkmen. Formed out of his home recording project dating back to
the late '70s, the group didn't really coalesce until Joe went to
college at Temple University. Starting with 1985's Big Lizard in My
Backyard, they recorded dozens of albums and EPs, and though they
broke up in 1995, they've reunited a number of times since for
various shows. Outside of The Dead Milkmen, Joe is prolific,
recording a number of albums on his own and with groups like The
Low Budgets. His latest album Joe Jack Talcum sings Railroad Bill
and Other Songs was just released late last year!
