Interview with A Wilhelm Scream – Podcast 33

Posted by rich on August 29, 2006

This week we have something even more exciting than a debacle in a ten year old murder case, that’s right it’s A Wilhelm Scream (not just an exciting sound effect). These Massachusans are not only the kings of soon to be pin up teen heart throbs, they’re also one of the best young technical punk bands around. We got the chance to talk with Nuno and new bassist Brian (and knowing how this band goes through bassists this may be the only time you hear from him) about such fine topics as touring, being recognized at Best Buy and how awesomely unawesome Warped Tour is. We even took time to tackle the big issues regarding Dexter Holland and Anarchy Airlines!

EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS PANDA FUN TIME!!!: Once again Justin from PunkNews.Org finagled his way onto the show. I’m not sure about the details about how he got on the show but I believe it has something to do with me asking him. Anyhow, he throws a couple of funny lines out there so keep an ear out for him.

Finally, we have a new contest were you can win a FREE copy of A Wilhelm Scream’s The Benefits of Thinking Out Loud and a CAN COZY! It’s like Christmas in your internet and A Wilhelm Scream is coming! Be sure to listen to the last 8 minutes or so to learn how to enter. And your continued contact through SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, our MySpace and the comments section always makes us smile (even if it’s only at your horrible grammar). So keep coming back and we’ll keep asking the questions you never wanted to know the answers to.

Interview with Chuck Ragan – Podcast 32

Posted by rich on August 22, 2006

So for those of you not wrapped up in the uneventful 24 hour news coverage of a 10 year old murder case, we have a new and exciting interview. This week we talk with a musician, carpenter and fisherman. I mean none other than the eclectic Chuck Ragan.

Now if that name sounds familiar it’s not just because his name has the same pronunciation as a former president. Chuck fronted a couple of little Florida swamp bands by the name of Hot Water Music and Rumbleseat. Now a days Chuck is taking time to churn out some amazing solo music that is high in a rockatude, even if it’s low on electrical instruments. This is the only man who can knowledgably discuss major touring, shark tacos and Afro Cuban Jazz. Truly this interview has it all.

Not only do we have some of the only live recorded Chuck Ragan solo material we have a chance for you to win some as well. Just listen to the end of our broadcast (last 8 minutes) to learn how to enter to win. Also, you can send us messages at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on our MySpace or on the comment sections on the main page. Enjoy, because next week we go back to the chaos that is interviewing whole bands.

Interview with World/Inferno Friendship Society – Podcast 31

Posted by rich on August 15, 2006

This week marks a milestone, not necessarily for us at SSR, but for humanity as a whole. This week is the official release of one of the greatest pieces of cinema du force ever, Snakes on a Plane. Seriously, have the jokes gotten old? Sure. Is it going to be a mark of pop culture embarrassment years from now? Probably. Am I going to be there opening weekend? Absolutely.

And with that we at SSR bring you our very special (in no way related to) Snakes on a Plane episode, featuring the snakiest band around The World/Inferno Friendship Society. This ruckus group of east coasters may think everyone and everything about California stinks but we still can’t help but love them. So check out the interview and learn about Jack Tericlothes machete induced appendectomy, how they got kicked off tour with Mindless Self Indulgence and the origins of WWJD (What Would Jack Do). PLUS, bonus, guest interviewer Justin (a.k.a. Fuzzy) from PunkNews.org.

In addition we will be giving away TWO copies of World/Inferno’s new album Red-Eyed Soul (and let me tell you, your soul has red eyes because it just got its ass kicked by this rocking album). Honestly (and internet ass kissing aside) this is one of the best albums of the year, period. So listen to the last 8 minutes (at least) to learn how to ENTER TO WIN. As always send us love and hate care of SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, our MySpace or on the comments section (especially if you have a name like Balls Mahoney). So take care and fly safe, because if it’s not snakes on your plane you need to worry about, apparently it’s baby formula.

Interviews at Warped Tour (Part 2) – Podcast 30

Posted by rich on August 8, 2006

This week we bring you the fantastic second edition of our Warped Tour interviews. So sit back and enjoy music and interviews from The Living end and Every Time I Die. One band is Australian and plays an upright bass, one is American and has a music video featuring Michael Madsen, I’ll let you decide who is who. However, I will tell you that urine, Revolver magazine, and giant hair is discussed.
As these bands are both much to famous to give us stuff (and we didn’t want to ask as Warped Tour is draining enough) we will simply be running our Akimbo contest for another week. So check out the end of last weeks broadcast to learn how to enter to win fabulous prizes. As always, you can hit us up at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or under the comments section. Enjoy and check back next week for continued heights of awesomeness.

So here we are, another week and another wonderful, enlightening episode. This week we have Seattle’s Akimbo. These three guys have a rock-a-tude factor that is only beaten by their awesome hair factor. How good are they? So good that Jello Biafra insisted they put out an album with Alternative Tentacles. So if you love awesome metal infused hardcore these are your guys.

If you’re unfamiliar with their sound this week’s contest seeks to hook you up! You can ENTER TO WIN either a copy of Akimbo’s City of Stars or Forging Steel and Laying Stone or BOTH!
