Return to Pancake Mountain
Alas, after featuring everyone from The White Stripes and M.I.A. to Arcade Fire and Metric to The Flaming Lips and Kings of Leon—not to mention road-trips to SXSW, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo—Pancake Mountain announced this past February they’d no longer be serving new episodes. As star goat puppet Rufus Leaking wrote, “the hoity-toity TV network big wigs just couldn’t bring themselves to let us make our show the way it was intended. And, if our punk ethos has taught us anything, it’s never sell out to The Man. I’m still not sure who this man is (or even his name), but Scott tells me he’s important.”
Creators Scott Stuckey and J.R. Soldano are keynote speakers at next week’s INplay 2012 conference—”Never Surrender: Your Pancakes Just the Way you Want Them. Always”—at the Liberty Grand, and are currently “entertaining ideas” for a new show that will similarly use music to appeal equally to kids and grown-ups. In the meantime, I spoke to the pair about their Pancake legacy.
