Video Interview: Playwright, Brett Neveu & Band Members of The Noses and This Magazine Is Haunted

We talked to 4 rockin' musicians who also happen to be somebody's parents.  Our interview includes a few dads and 1 kick ass punk mama, Ellen, who sings, plays a wicked bass, and can still spout a plume of Pabst Blue Ribbon on stage, with the best of 'em.  

Hear them expound on how parenting littles has changed their writing tempo and their lives, what the kids think of The Sex Pistols, and Ellen's brilliantly snarky, kittencentric rant about parenting philosophy, full of chunks of wisdom like "we're all assholes and little Buddhas at the same time."

Thanks for checkin' out our very first Vimeo video, on the brand spankin' new ChiIL Mama Channel.   We now have 48 original videos on The ChiIL Mama Channel on YouTube, so we're expanding our horizons.

We'll be featuring a whole series of interviews with interesting musicians including adult band members who have children, those playing indie kids (or kindie) music for families, and band members who are kids.   We also have live, concert footage of most of the bands and often run tie ins with free CDs (nationwide) and free concert tickets in the Chicago area.   So check in like we vote in Chicago....early and often.   Enjoy!
