This week on the TransCanada Music West podcast, we kick off a new season of the series with a live performance from Jr. Gone Wild captured on stage at the 2015 Calgary Folk Music Festival. The Edmonton band became synonymous with the cow-punk genre they helped to create during their 15 year career, which spans six releases from 1982-1995. In 2013, they re-formed for a reunion gig after disbanding nearly twenty years earlier. The overwhelming reaction to those reunion shows lead the group to continue to perform live and record music together.
The new lineup features founding member Mike McDonald, along with former Jr. Gone Wild alumni Dove Brown, Steve Loree and Larry Shelast.
