Interview with Western Addiction – Podcast 5

Posted by rich on November 8, 2005

Another week, another fully ground breaking episode hear at SSR. We had the high honor of not only talking with a majority of the members in one of Fat Wreck Chords newest bands, but we also conducted said interview in Fat HQ. That’s right, the multibillion dollar industry behemoth opened their doors to us and we even got a personal tour from Jason of Western Addiction. Let me just tell you now Fat HQ is pretty much just the way you would envision it, from the leopard and zebra print carpet, right down to the heated toilet seat in the otherwise unsuspecting restroom.

But enough giving you a peak at the high life (besides if you were important enough Fat would have let you into their inner sanctum). This interview is hands down my favorite in our short history. The guys in Western Addiction are funny, interesting, and most of all they can talk your ear off. Well, maybe not all of them, but certainly Chicken. In all honesty, this is a band I was really excited to talk to, and after talking to them I can see they are honest guys who really love what they do.

If you get the chance check them out live, since they have a bunch of shows coming up with Propaghandi (check their website). Also, if you’re still not sure if you want to pick up their album check out the compilation Protect that they’re on it’s a good cause and it’s cheap. Feel free to hit us up on the comment section or at Soundscenerevolution@gmail.com, especially if you want us to waste your bands time.
