This week we have a very special episode. It’s not often that I really feel like the show reaches people but this is one of those instances. A few weeks ago Aaron Scott (Attica! Attica!, Ex-Marathon) e-mailed us and asked if we might want to have him on the show. He listened to the No Trigger interview we did a while back where we gushed over Marathon and thought he might offer (mind you Aaron was totally humble and nearly embarrassed about seeming so presumptuous to assume that we must want to talk to him). Anyhow, we were beyond stoked to have the chance to talk to Aaron and the fact that he was a fan (as we were of his work) made it even more exciting.
For those of you who don’t know Aaron’s new band, Attica! Attica!, is him and a collection of artists playing songs that he’s written over the course of his travels across the country. It’s much different than Marathon, being more theatrical and boasting instruments from pianos to cellos and everything in between. Aaron is also crazy socially conscious (like her cares about a lot of things, not like he’s some zany “stab a meat eater” dickweed) and happens to support a lot of worthy causes through both his music and his daily efforts. So, basically, he’s really interesting and you’ll really want to hear everything he has to say…seriously.
Also, Aaron hooked us up with a crazy insane prize pack for one lucky dude. You get:
Marathon – Songs to turn the Tide on CD
Marathon – Self-titled full length on CD
Attica! Attica! – Dead Skin/Dried Blood on CD
A 10″ vinyl picture disc from Red Leade featuring Attica! Attica!, Nakatomi Plaza, Scream Hello and The new Dress.
An Attica! Attica! t-shirt (size large)
That’s a ton of shit!!!! So be sure to enter and learn how to win and increase your odds of getting crazy hooked up. Be sure to write use at SoundSceneRevolution[at]Gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or in the comments section. And Remember, “This is Rickey calling on behalf of Rickey. Rickey wants to play baseball.”
So, we broke some big ground with the announcing of The Swellers signing to Fueled by Ramen, even if it didn’t get posted until after the news was public knowledge. We decided to take this week to bring you a band you’ll be hearing all about in the coming years, Echoes of Harper’s Ferry. Imagine some sort of a line between Propagandhi, The Lawrence Arms and Hot Water Music. Pretty fucked up line, eh? Somewhere on that line exists Echoes of Harper’s Ferry and it’s a strange, scary and awesome place. Check it out as the band talks about being political, seeing bears and what it’s like to think some bands are over hyped.
We’ll be wrapping up a couple of contests this week as introducing a new one, where you can enter to win a copy of Echoes of Harper’s Ferry debt full length Never Forget and their 7″ split with Sleephorse. That’s some killer jams so be sure to listen to learn how to win. Catch you dicks next week with new shows and content and what not and remember, “I think every child star suffers through this period because you’re not the cute and charming child that you were. You start to grow, and they want to keep you little forever.”
The Swellers…Sounds like it should be a porn title, right? Well it may be but it’s also a collection of rocking dudes, including two brothers and a Canadian. Sounds like a recipe for a zany buddy comedy, right? Lots of questions this week, eh? Anyway, we caught up with these guys literally the day before they announced their signing to the epically huge music conglomerate Fueled by Ramen. As such, this is the last interview they ever did when they were punk. So tune in and enjoy the last you’ll hear of the punk Swellers, before they become a hip hop boy band, mixed with crunk and nu-metal (that sounds alright actually).
Enjoy the interview and be sure to check these dudes as they make it big and earn the mega bux! We’ll see you all next week and remember, “It is interesting to learn Levi is working on a piece of fiction while honing his acting skills”.
Taking now down time from our 100th epic show (and celebration) we’re jumping straight into 101! This week we have a special show featuring Tony, vocalist of No Friends (and some other band call Municipal Waste). We had a chance to talk to Tony about working with a new band, fitting in with part of the New Mexican Disaster Squad dynamic and how to work in two awesome bands. Plus, we have some awesome new songs from No Friends not yet released LP.
We’ll have some hot new contests and interviews in weeks to come. I’ll be live and at Warped Tour this weekend…So get ready for disappointment. Feel free to send us suggestions or feedback to SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on Myspace or here in our comments section. And remember, “People think I’ve changed. I have changed.
