The Fest Hotel Show – Podcast 115

Posted by rich on December 15, 2009

**CAUTION**: This week’s show starts out loud and annoying and gets better from there.

This is gonna be short and sweet.  This is our Holiday Edition and we thought we’d do something better than cobble together some bullshit clips of the least awful things we’ve done in the last year.  So here’s the skinny.  Satureday, October 31, 2009 (the second day of The Fest) Sound Guy Nariman, Justin of punknews and myself, hosted a small acoustic gathering in our hotel in Gainesville, Florida.  The line up for this show was constantly changing due to schedule conflicts, sickness and just plan drunkenness but at the last minute we pulled together three amazing artists, PJ Bond, Aaron Scott (of Attica! Attica!, Ex-Marathon), and Tom May (of the Menzingers).  No set lists were planned and no one really knew how it would go.  In the midst of our poor planning, Sound Guy Nariman had the forethought to record the whole thing.  That recording is presented here, in its entirety, including banter, tuning and people yelling drunkenly at the performers.  It’s not anything close to perfect, but who said music was supposed to be perfect?

So, enjoy and be sure to check back after the new year, when we’ll have a full set of new interviews and contests (BTW the Cobra Skulls contest is still running).  Be sure to contact us at SoundSceneRevolution[at]Gamil[dot]Com, on Myspace and follow us at Twitter.com/SoundSceneRev.  Merry Holiday stuff bitches.

Interview with Attica! Attica! – Podcast 104

Posted by rich on July 28, 2009

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.
PLUS
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.”
