Interview with The Cliftons – Podcast 9

Posted by rich on December 20, 2005

Happy Holidays!

Now that that’s out of the way, we (the fine men who bring you SSR) have an early Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanza gift for you all (they do give gifts at Kwanza, right?). This week we bring you an interview with the Bay Areas own The Cliftons! So why is this special? Two reasons, the first being that it clocks in at record time. Since The Cliftons songs are just barely over a minute each, it’s only fair that the whole interview is just over 14 minutes long. Scant by traditional SSR standards.

The second reason this broadcast is special is slightly more disturbing. Let’s just say there is currently a long list of death row inmates who would consider The Cliftons music, “sick and fucked up”. Needless to say it’s even odder to hear it when the members are talking to your face without the distortion of guitars or “singing”. That is why we ask you to take the following precaution: if you have children and plan to listen to this interview, please, kill them. Then they will never grow up having to live in a world where they know mommy or daddy listened to (and probably laughed at) this filth.

In all truth The Cliftons are a band that people either consider funny or stupid and offensive. Whether that is because one side “gets” the band or not we don’t know. However, we believe these guys are hard working musicians who deserve any recognition they can get. So check them out and send your hate mail to and we’ll forward it to the boys in the band.

There most likely won’t be a new interview next week. We might, however, post a full download of songs from artists we’ve interviewed. This all depends on how lazy we are. Regardless, don’t expect an interview but check back just to keep our website hits up. Until then keep the feedback coming and be sure to tell your friends about us and join our myspace “friends” list, it’s what Tom wouldn’t want you to do.

Interview with Propagandhi – Podcast 8

Posted by rich on December 13, 2005

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We here at SSR promised you a big, ground breaking interview this week. Today, we deliver on that promise. Our guest today is a member of a band that is known for being as elusive as they are hard rocking. But, through constant vigilance and a surprise ambush we nailed this exclusive. And today we share the fruits of our labor with you, in this exclusive interview with Propagandhi.

Well, I suppose not the whole band but rather the outspoken Jordy-boy of Propagandhi (AKA Jordy, AKA Jord). The whole thing came to be shortly after our interview with the previously mentioned Greg MacPherson. When we mentioned the request to talk with Propagandhi Greg happily helped us snag Jordy in our trap. Luckily, for us, Jordy was really cool and really polite about the whole thing. While this may not be our funniest interview to date it is certainly one of the most interesting and informative.

Also, if you got to see (or wanted to see) Propagandhi’s tour down the west coast you may be interested in our interviews with other bands from that tour, including; Western Addiction, Greg MacPherson, and Jesse Luscious (Of The Frisk). We would also like to announce our final stage of whoring with the start of SSR’s own MySpace account. If you want you can check out news, postings, pictures and general tomfoolery there. Also, you can add us to your friends list so we look really cool. Plus, if you add us I promise some 14 year old girl will hit on you via Myspace (we, however, are not to be held responsible for the repercussions of such events).

So enjoy the interview and be sure to drop us some comments at, on our message board or on our new fangled MySpace account. Keep coming back in the weeks to come for more amazing interviews and shit you just won’t find anywhere else.

Interview with Greg MacPherson – Podcast 7

Posted by rich on December 6, 2005

Welcome back! After stuffing ourselves on turkey and celebrating national genocide we’ve decided to head on back with an out of country interview. That’s right, we here at SSR just sat down with a real live Canadian. Not just any Canadian but Winnipeg’s own Greg MacPherson. That’s right, just before opening for Propagandhi on their Crimean Tour, Mr. MacPherson took a few minutes to sit down and humor us Southern Yanks.

This was actually Greg’s very first time in California and it was our first time interviewing a Canadian. So, as you can imagine, there was a high degree of caution on both sides. However, as the interview went on both of us warmed up and ended up probably sharing more than we should of. Honestly, Greg is one of the nicest and most honest musicians I’ve ever met. This may explain my fast growing Man-crush that I have with him. None the less, I suggest you take the time to find out about one of Canada’s most interesting and engaging artists. Please do not look him in the eyes though, lest he steal your soul and your heart.

To keep you interested, next week we should have one of our biggest guests to date. I only hesitate to name names for fear that God won’t let us actually succeed in our task. So if you really want to know are hugely rocking guest for next week, you’re just going to have to listen next Tuesday. As always, if you want to contact us you can reach us at, or on our comments section. All comments are welcome, even if you just want to profess your man crush on Mr. MacPherson. Thanks for reading.
