Another week, another interview. This week with Jacksonville, Florida’s Whole Wheat Bread. Not only nutritious but a delicious part of rocking out. So enjoy as we talk to the Florida trio about former members, touring the country and hanging with Lil’ John, it’s African American-tastic!
Along with an interview we have a new chance to ENTER TO WIN!!!, where you can get a brand new copy of Whole Wheat Bread’s Punk Live EP, it’s sourdough-rific. So, listen to the interview and get on that shit.
Other than that, we’re still running the Asian Manniversary contest, but that’s it. So send us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on Myspace, or in the comments section. And remember, plastic Jesus beats paper Jesus, but not scissors Jesus.
So, to the dismay of many of our fan, we are taking a break form the shit heap that is Warped Tour interviews to bring you something totally different, a band that was banned from Warped Tour, The Lawrence Arms. Actually, we’ll be running a few Asian Man Records interviews, in conjunction with their 11th Anniversary.
If you don’t know who the Lawrence Arms are by now I highly suggest you Google the city of Chicago and filter through the stories until you find them, go ahead, we’ll wait…So sit back and enjoy the tasty goodness as Chris, Brendan and Neil talk about Cornish Gay Men, concept albums, and why Brendan took the mic into the toilet during the interview. It’s a good (totally naked) time had by all.
Additionally, we’ll have a brand new ENTER TO WIN!!! featuring a variety of Asian Man releases. One winner gets a copy of both Dan Potthast albums, Lawrence Arms’ Cocktails and Dreams, the rerelease of Alkaline Trio’s Goddamnit, plus some other fun stuff. So listen and figure out how to get free crap!
Stay tuned until next week when we have more awesome stuff. And feel free to drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments section. And remember…freedom is on the March…and the May.
So, a week back into shows and it seems like my writer’s block has cleared up, yah! Unfortunately, you now have to (well I guess not “have to” but you should) listen to what is now known as “The Warped Tour shit-fest!”. Not that I have anything against the Warped Tour, I mean we had to apply for press Pass, which in and of itself is 90% more work than we normally do. So we had to want to get in. However, once inside the Warped Tour press tent, we entered a land where time and space functioned in odd, unexplainable ways. A world where Big D and the Kids Table weren’t listed on the interview schedule, but you could interview them if you asked the press lady about it. A world where that same press lady would continually feed you band after band of crap that you didn’t request and you didn’t know a thing about. In short, a world gone mad.
So out of the three interviews we wanted we got one. Still, we left with 7 interviews, that’s 6 whole interviews filled with bands we don’t know and people we don’t know what to ask. So sit back and enjoy the awkwardness of entire interviews where I avoid asking bands about their music, because I don’t know anything about them.
As far as contests go, we’re not going to ask bands on Warped Tour, making no money, to give us free shit. Sorry, but we’re not total assholes. But stay tuned for some real contests coming up soon. Also, say hi at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments. It’s so totally awesome it makes us forget that Al Qaeda is regrouping.
So here it is, our first interview in like 6 weeks and I can’t think of a damn intro. It’s not like I don’t have enough to work with, Cobra Skulls, our guest, is a fucking fantastic band. And it’s not like it’s not topical, their new album, Sitting Army, came out today, July 10. I just can’t think of anything else to say. I can’t even try to be my typical, not funny self.
Well, the interview is rad. We have a copy of Cobra Skulls EP, Draw Muhamad, to give away. We’ll have Warped Tour interviews for the next three weeks (just a heads up, they all suck, sorry). And that’s it. Send us e-mails (firstname.lastname@example.org), and MySpace and shit. Maybe I’ll be more talkative next week if you contact us.
