It’s a globetrotting episode, and we uncork it all in London’s East End with sommelier-restauranteur Charlie Mellor. He’s the owner of The Laughing Heart, a contemporary British restaurant that specializes in showcasing natural wines. Charlie’s got one of the more interesting backgrounds we’ve encountered. He’s a former professional opera singer who made his stage debut in his native Australia in Richard Wagner’s drama, Tristan und Isolde. In Los Angeles, we catch up with Compton’s own The Pantheons. The post-punk quartet is one of a slew of young bands helping to shape the city’s music scene. They give us a raucous live perfomance at the studios for Dangerbird Records in Silver Lake.
