This week, I got to talk to two fine Canadian BAHDS, Jeremy Taggart & Jonathan Torrens!!
Taggart & Torrens have resumes well known to most, Taggart of course, the long time drummer for Our Lady Peace and Jonathan Torrens for his many TV roles over the years including Street Cents, Jonovision, he’s also had roles on Degrassi, Mr. D, Letterkenny and of course, J-Roc from the Trailer Park Boys.
They released the album BAHDS a few weeks ago. If you’re a fan of their podcast, there’s tons of Easter eggs throughout the record. They’ve got the podcast, a book, a new record and some great music videos.
Speaking of videos, this podcast is the first that I’ve done with video, and you can watch the interview through the Darryl Talks To Bands Instagram account below, it’s just the interview, there are 3 songs in the podcast that we discuss in the interview. I also try to get (or create) some dirt on Jeremy’s departure from Our Lady Peace in 2014 and ask him to compare BAHDS to Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk’s record from 2019 called Moon Vs. Sun. Despite both of those things, I think we became Bahds over the course of this discussion.

Taggart & Torrens have a new record on Dine Alone called BAHDS. We talk about that, their podcast, we speak some french for no particular reason and I try and pitch myself to play the role of a Degrassi legend, if they ever make a movie. . . . . #taggartntorrens #podcast #dttb #canada #canadianity #darrylspring #darryltalkstobands #deanblundellpodcastnetwork #ottawa #toronto #pei #terrygotwasted #weekendbumsies #thescore #frenchimmersion #gordonlightfoot
