Interview with Defiance, Ohio – Podcast 52

Posted by rich on March 6, 2007

I’m at the job so I’ll keep this short (updating your blog is apparently only a small step up from looking at porn on the clock, according to company policy). This week we have a couple of special surprises. First, we have a rocking guest by the name of Geoff from Defiance, Ohio. They’re a super awesome band that blends elements of folk and punk(ya know, folk-punk). If that doesn’t do it for you picture Against Me!, This Bike is a Pipe Bomb, Woody Guthrie and four dudes who haven’t showered in a while playing beach volleyball in the middle of October on some far off frozen tundra that is only inhabited by an indigenous population of crab people, while the soundtrack to The Sound of Music plays in the background and a team of Iron Chefs prepare a meal for the Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan using the secret ingredient of teeth pulled from the infant mouth of the Siberian White Tiger. Ya know something like that.

No matter what you compare them to Defiance, Ohio is one thing, good! And to add to this weeks goodness we have a special guest interviewer, Justin from Punknews.org . Unlike all the other times where he just chimes in with a question or two Justin actually takes the helm for this interview and steers this sinking ship of a podcast right into the coast of awesomeness! Of course this journey did take some 50 minutes so Sound Guy Nariman edged it down a bit for posting, but the full sized one should be up at sometime.

FINALLY: we wrap up our contests for Only Crime, New Mexican Disaster Squad and Drag the River this week. Thanks to everyone who entered, be sure to listen to see if you won. While we don’t have a new contest (as Defiance, Ohio readily gives their music away) we are continuing to run our contest for Tim Barry, so listen to that and learn how to enter. Always (and I mean that) feel free to drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments section. You never call anymore and a letter once in a while would be nice and don’t even get me started on how neglectful you’ve been of Sound Guy Nariman…Well you get the idea.
