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)
