In today's episode, Alex Gordon and Margaret Welsh sit down with Edward Banchs, author of Heavy Metal Africa: Life, Passion and Heavy Metal in the Forgotten Continent (Word Association Publishers), discussing how the art-form thrives in the continent and why nobody thinks it does. Special thanks to Zombies Ate My Girlfriend, who shared "Appropriate Hate Crimes" and "Jahan" for use in this episode. Both songs are from their latest album, Retrocide. Check out their new video for "Jahan," here.


Edward is doing a reading and Q&A at City Books on December 13. For more information, go here.
