Lee Bains III dives head first into The Marinade! Lee and his band the Glory Fires have made the most important record of 2017. Youth Detention: Nail My Feet Down to the Southside of Town is an epic double album that reads like a series of essays on race, class, and our current political situation.
Lee is also a thoughtful, kind, fascinating person. We caught up at Lil' Indies in Orlando, FL, before his set at Will's Pub and discussed what influenced his poetic lyrics, why college football players should be paid (or maybe not), and how each of us came to appreciate Against Me!. Cheers, y'all.
