Mound City Mixtape

Episode 01 - The Blind Eyes

Published on

The Blind Eyes were one of the most popular bands in St. Louis during their career, from 2007-2014. They fused ‘60s and ‘70s pop songwriting with a tightness and urgency inherited from first-wave punk. The band broke up in 2014, but decided to reunite for one more show in 2017, to benefit a cause personal to them.

This episode features two interviews with lead singer Seth Porter, one from just before the band’s initial break-up, and another from just before their reunion show. Together, they show how being in a band means much more than what happens on-stage, and how the relationships formed from such an endeavor mean more than the music and good times.
