Returning guest Steve Michener brings us the criminally obscure debut record by The Vulgar Boatmen, 'You and Your Sister'
At the time of their 1989 debut album 'You And Your Sister', The Vulgar Boatmen constituted two bands: one based in Florida and one based in Indiana. Returning guest Steve Michener (Big Dipper, Volcano Suns, Dumptruck) makes the case that their wonderfully subdued, heart-tugging songs easily overshadow their slightly bizarre backstory. Come along for the ride...

Steve grew up in the fertile music scene of Boston in the 80s where he was an itinerant bassist for many a band, perhaps least-famously, Big Dipper. Since then, he has retired from the music business and moved to the West Coast to become an RN but still searches out exciting music, new and old, if only to sneer at it.
