Chastity Belt Performs, Regrets Nothing

This story originally aired on November 26, 2016. 

Getting a tattoo can certainly be an occasion for regret. Getting a tattoo that has an intentional misspelling in it could potentially lead to more opportunity for regret. Naming your debut album after your intentionally misspelled tattoo pretty much sums up the "no regrets" attitude of the Seattle-based band Chastity Belt.

There certainly could have been moments for regret — from singing songs about "how a guy is hot" to playing in creepy little venues in the middle of nowhere, to making the decision to abandon their fields of study after graduation and go all-in to the uncertain and unstable music industry, but the band collectively agrees that they wouldn't change a thing.

Chastity Belt visited our performance studio to play a couple of songs, including one not available on any album, and to chat with Sound Effect producer Kevin Kniestedt.

Kevin began his career at KNKX in 2003, where his first responsibility was to eradicate the KNKX Jazz Library from all Smooth Jazz CD’s. Since then there is not much at KNKX he hasn’t done. Kevin has worked as a full time jazz host, news host, and has hosted, at least once, almost every single program on KNKX. Kevin currently produces 88.5's weekly show Sound Effect. Kevin has conducted or produced hundreds of interviews, has won local and national awards for newscasts and commentary, and helped make the KNKX Grocery Tote famous.
