Take Five with The Alternate Side: Yukon Blonde

Fridays on FUV, Take Five with The Alternate Side. This week: Yukon Blonde.

Yukon Blonde's second album Tiger Talk might have been mostly written on the road, but the record reflects some home truths for the Canadian band: they really know how to write a fun, frank and ferocious rock song.

The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali had a chance to catch up with Yukon Blonde frontman Jeff Innes at SXSW in March, but a few weeks ago the entire band — Innes, guitarist Brandon Scott, drummer Graham Jones, bassist John Jeffrey and touring guitarist/keyboardist Matt Kell — headed to the Bronx for a session in Studio A. They revealed the convoluted story behind Tiger Talk's title and played tracks like "Stairway" and "Sweet Dee."

Watch all of the performance videos and read highlights of the interview at The Alternate Side, and hear the full session today at 11 a.m. EDT on 91.5 WNYE or online.
