Thanks so much for taking the time to check back in with us at SSR. I feel like every new episode I post an apology for taking so long to update. Hopefully, we have enough to keep going for a while, but none of that matters today. What matters is that we have a brand new show with Oakland’s own NoBunny! I’m never going to claim to be well educated in garage rock, or lo-fi buzz or anything like that but what I can say is NoBunny rocks. As if being a complete musical anomaly wasn’t good enough, the guy is also funny and strange as hell to talk to. So check it out if you want all the scoop on the artist Jay Reatard said put out the best album of 2009.
We also have a chance to win a fancy vinyl copy of NoBunny’s LP, Love Visions. I have two copies that we may give away, the original Bubble Dumb version and the red repress that was actually an over run that has white labels and a stamp as the center label (I think there’s like 200 of these at most). So if you like selling shit on ebay, you’ll want this for sure. As always, send us feedback, questions and critiques at SoundSceneReveolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or in our comments section and follow us on Twitter (Twitter.com/SoundSceneRev). And remember, “We’re just cashing in on her celebrity right now,” wisdom.
After a super extended holiday break we’ve returned with all of the your favoriteness that you’ve come to expect! I’ll take the blame for the break, I got used to not doing tons of thankless work and not receiving e-mails from people who hate me and want to do nothing more than needlessly criticize me. I’m sorry, it won’t happen again (P.S. It’s totally gonna happen again).
To welcome you back we have an interview with the head hancho and lead man of 1-2-3-4-Go! Records, Stevo (maybe he has a last name, I don’t know. Maybe it’s “O”. Like he’s Steven Jenkins Oh. That would make the “Oh” Face joke so much better for him, also it means I’d see his mother’s “Oh” Face a lot). Stevo is a super rad dude who has been running one of the best labels in the Bay Area, releasing everything from Pop punk to crazy rock and even some folk type shit. Also, he’s full of crazy stories and useless information. If you’re a fan of anything ever, you’ll want to listen to what Stevo has to say.
Also, we have a brand new contest for not one, not four but three releases from 1-2-3-4-Go! Records. Listen to the end of the broadcast and you can learn how to enter to win copies of Nobunny’s Love Visions, Git Some’s Cosmic Rock, and The Ringers Detention Hall. That’s like $20 worth of shit…FOR FREE!! So check it out and be sure to contact us at SoundSceneRevolution[at]gmail[dot]com, on MySpace or in the comments section. And remember, “Thank you very much. Everyone’s crying, and now I have to go on.”
