#111 – Tommy Keene – Behind the Parade

Tommy Keene - Behind the Parade

–For 30 years, he’s created radio ready music that never gets played on the radio–

Melodic rock, power pop, or just plain good music – whatever you call it, Tommy Keene has been making it for the last 30 years.  Hot on the heels of 2010’s 2-CD anthology, we sit down again with Keene to talk about his brand-new studio album Behind the Parade.  Unique to this project, he recorded most of the instruments himself at his home studio.  Yet, the signature Tommy Keene sound, with chiming guitars, memorable hooks, and big drums (courtesy of session-ace Rob Brill), are all intact.  We also touch on the crazy video he made for the first single, “Deep Six Saturday.”
