Rewind 65: Les Carlsen, lead singer of Bloodgood, and our faithful host of Frontline Records Rewind, takes us on a journey through his musical career beginning as a star in the Broadway musical Hair.

In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 65, Executive Producer, Adel Meisenheimer, interviews Les Carlsen. She asks what Les was doing before he became famous as host of the show (haha). Listeners will hear about his dynamic musical history, including a star role in the Broadway musical, “Hair”, and how he transitioned from sex, drugs and Hair to a Christian heavy metal band, Bloodgood. Since writing, singing and recording albums with Bloodgood on Frontline Records in 1986-1990, his musical and theatrical journey continues. In 2013 Bloodgood independently released “Dangerously Close”. Les collaborated with long-time friend, Don Cromwell (bass player for Eddie Money, Air Supply), releasing the album “The Lucky Side”. And in 2016 he has been memorizing a 90-minute monologue for the play, “St. John in Exile”, which opened in October and will be touring the country. In closing minutes of the episode listeners are treated to a snippet of the play, as performed by St. John himself, with Bloodgood standard, “Seven”, playing in the background.

Hey. Just discovered your podcast, and have been listening through them whenever I can. It has been so cool to hear some of this music again, rediscover some bands I forgot about, and hear some stories about some artists I had never heard before. I already plan to re-buy Weapons Of Our Warfare. Holy Smokes, what an incredible album! A very heartfelt thank you to all of you at Frontline records. I am 44 years old, and I still crank up all of your old albums that I have managed to re-buy on CD, or re-buy digitally. Thank you so much for all you did back in the day, and everything you are doing now with these podcasts. Awesome awesome awesome!!! Keep it up.

– Phil
