This week, we're scratching The Itch for a new series: a Shiprocked Series! We've been talking about it for ages, and it's finally here. As Dan prepares to dock, we're unleashing the first of a trio of interviews with artists who will be performing (and vacationing) on the boat. And we're starting with a guy who made an immediate impression on us last year: Giovannie Yanez of Giovannie and the Hired Guns. Their album Tejano Punk Boyz made Dan's top 20 and featured a fascinating fusion of 90s alt rock and country sounds, complete with confessional lyrics and a Mexican influence. Giovannie joined us to discuss his roots, his writing style, and his eponymous Hired Guns. Enjoy!

If you like what you hear, you can hear more of us every Sunday night broadcasting rock to the masses from 6-9pm CST on KCLC-FM. If you're not in the St. Louis area, you can stream the show from 891thewood.com, TuneIn, Radio.net, and OnlineRadioBox!

Giovannie Yanez is the frontman and titular Giovannie in Giovannie and the Hired Guns. He's a fan of vulnerable rock and roll, his lovely bride-to-be, and a healthy dose of profanity.
