After a week of stuffing ourselves with over sized fowl and braving hordes of meth addicted soccer moms at Wal-Mart at 3am, we’re back to bring you the best and last installment of our Fest interviews. This week we sat down with Brent Eyestone and his band mates in Forensics. For those not in the know, Brent is the label overlord of Magic Bullet Records, an amazing label that boasts releases from This Will Destroy You, Doomriders, Austin Lucas and a ton more. Forensics is the awesome rock band that Brent fronts (I know right, so talented). They’re somewhere between Kelly Clarkson and mid 2000’s Green Day (and they covered the Gin Blossoms’ “Hey Jealousy” at the Fest in 2008 [yeah it ruled]). While I wasn’t quite prepared to interview the whole band (I mean, why would I actually want to be prepared for one of these things, ever), we cover everything from how the band got started, to the “revival” of vinyl, to playing live and even what it’s like to run a vanity label (I kid). It’s pretty awesome and the guys are incredibly candid (something I find in increasing scarcity in music these days).
We have one more show after this, then we’ll be bringing you our Holiday Speck-Tac-You-Lore (that’s four syllables of awesome), so don’t miss out! Also, we’ll be hosting all open contests for about two more weeks, then they’ll all be closed for the holiday season, so if you want to win someone a gift (instead of pissing away $15), or just want something incredible for your white elephant exchange, enter now!

And remember, “We have to all improve our performance in terms of ensuring error-free broadcasts. To that end, there was a meeting this afternoon between senior managers and the folks who run the daytime shows in which expectations were reviewed, and the following results were announced: Effective immediately, there is zero tolerance for on-screen errors”…Penis.
