After spending the last fifteen months on other projects, Noon Fifteen returns to Finish What You Started! In this episode, recorded in the driveway of Sam and Mandy’s new home (because COVID-19), the band discusses the politically-motivated Lupowitz composition “Dinosaurs,” and how you should try to listen to it while listening to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The band also teases Mandy’s gospel record (Joe doesn’t like the direction in which it’s headed).
Heard in this episode:
-Sam’s original cell phone demo
-2017 rehearsal recordings (Chris Armitage – drums)
-Unused 2018 studio recording
Also referenced in this episode:

Noon Fifteen returns, with new drummer Phil Shay in tow, and host Dan Cole back to plumb the depths of the band’s music.
The band’s sophomore effort, Finish What You Started, will be released in non-sequential installments via this podcast and the Noon Fifteen YouTube channel. The record’s songs explore themes of fear and temptation. The first three releases will coincide with the band’s “Julyfecta” of summer 2019 shows, with additional music forthcoming.
The first release, on July 4th, 2019, is Sam Lupowitz’s “The Tick.” Here, the band discusses the inspiration of Led Zeppelin, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, and the politics of the United States.
