Here it is kids, our last blog before we go on a month long hiatus to spread the message of gay Jebus to third world states across the midwest! So how do you top off a series of mediocre Warped Tour interviews? With one interview so goddamn insane it bottles the mind. That’s right we got Bomb the Music Industry! with us this week and we pull no punches. We talk about O’ Pioneers!!!, Asian Man Records, selling out, buying in, buying low and selling high and all the general things that have helped make Jeff the multimillionaire spokesman for DIY ska.
Also, this week we wrap up a series of ENTER TO WIN!!!’s, featuring our Asian Man Extravaganza (which drew a record number of entries) and our Whole Wheat Bread contest (which drew a mustache on the other contest).
A brand new ENTER TO WIN!!!, for a chance to win a copy of Bomb the Music Industry!’s Get Warmer on CD and limited edition picture disc. Listen to the last 8 minutes to learn how to enter. We should be back sometime in October but we may be taking off again to go to The Fest in Gainesville (we’ll let you know how that goes). Catch you all on the flipside. To the van, to the podcast, to the van, back home.
P.S. I said the last song was “Never trust a man without a horribly embarrassing secret” but I actually decided (post-editing) to go with “Get Warmer” because I love that song…and I’m a liar.
Holy crap! For the two of you who might read this crap, we’ve finally rolled out a show on time for the first time since your mom was sober enough to pass out somewhere other than the porch. How did we manage to do this amazing feat of averageness? Mostly, because this is a Warped Tour episode and the show was recorded and edited weeks ago…BUT, also because I had a remarkably slow day at work and got to type the blog on the clock. Take that, the man!
So, the down side is that all the punctuality on Earth can’t make Warped Tour interviews good but Killswitch Engage can. That’s right this week we sit down with those crazy kids of metalcore to discuss the finer points of metal, punk and short shorts. Also this week has Hawaii’s very own Pepper. Other than sharing their name with a popular dinner condiment I didn’t/don’t know anything about these guys, so don’t ask me.
We’ll be wrapping up all of our contests next week, but for now you have one last chance to enter our Asian Man Contests (Lawrence Arms and Dan Potthast interviews) and the Whole Wheat Bread contest. So enter now, or just shut your trap. Leave us e-cards filled with viruses at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, MySpace or the comments sections.
Hurricane Rich, out.
Welcome back. No reason to waste a lot of time on this because it’s part two of our three part WARPED TOUR SHITTACULAR!!! Basically, it’s us filtering through every single artist the fine folks at Warped Tour threw at us. And like the ubber pro’s we are, we handled each interview like we didn’t know who the hell these people were (because mostly, we didn’t).
So sit back and enjoy The Briggs, The Warped Tour Comedians (yeah, seriously) and Authority Zero. No on contests but our Asian Man Extravaganza and our Whole Wheat Bread contest are still open so check those out. Always, always (always?), yes always, hit us up at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments section.
Here’s a funny story. We edited this week’s show almost 7 days ago. All we needed to get it posted was my shitty blog contribution. 7 days…and this is what you get. That’s service.
Anyhow, this week we have a killer interview with Bay Area transplant and MU330 frontman, Dan Potthast. Dan is more than just a frontman for an amazing ska band, he also has his own solo work and a ton of small projects, most of which get discussed in this interview. So kick back and enjoy the sounds of two mouth breathers talking about monsters, rollercoasters and a smattering of music.
Also, we’re continuing our Asian Manstravaganza where you can ENTER TO WIN!!! both of Dan Potthast’s releases ( Sweets and Meats and Eyeballs), The Lawrence Arms Cocktails & Dreams, the re-release of Alkaline Trio’s Goddamnit and other cool Asian Man swag. Just listen to the end to learn how to enter.
As always, drop us a line at SoundSceneRevolution@gmail.com, on MySpace or in the comments section. See you all next week. And remember, if I lived next to a serial killer I wouldn’t snitch…I might move but I wouldn’t snitch.
