Interview with The Phenomenauts – Podcast 24

Posted by rich on June 27, 2006

I’m in the middle of watching an Eddie Izzard special I got on Netflix so this will be quick. This week we have Oakland, CA locals The Phenomenauts. I call them locals in that they claim Oakland as their headquarters, however they are truly citizens of Earth and they support Earth. More so than being Earth supporters they play awesome rock music with just enough rockabilly to keep things changing up. In addition their tour bus kicks much ass.

Along with their music and interview we’re giving away two copies of their Springman Records debut Re-Entry. So be sure to listen to the end of the broadcast to learn how to WIN THE FREE MUSIC!!! You can enter by messaging us at, at MySpace, or on our comments section (if you’re brave). Enjoy and let us know if you enjoy it.

Interview with DESA – Podcast 23

Posted by rich on June 20, 2006

No crap intro this week, just a quick explanation. This week we talk with Oakland, California’s coolest band that used to have members in Link 80, DESA. All you really need to know about these guys is that they rock hard, real hard (and they live in the nicest ghetto you’ve ever been afraid to leave your car in). They’re on tour right now with RX Bandits and they have a new album out called Arriving Alive that blows away any of their previous stuff we play on this show. So, I highly suggest you get it.

Now if you’re unfortunate enough that the tour isn’t coming to your town (or you’re too poor to buy a CD), we’ve hooked it up with DESA so that one lucky listener will get a free copy of their new CD and a DESA t-shirt (which are designed by Aaron of DESA). So be sure to listen to the last of the segment and ENTER TO WIN!

In the meantime, we’re always on at MySpace or email us at Keep checking back for more music and free stuff.

Interview with Cougars – Podcast 22

Posted by rich on June 13, 2006

So for those of you who aren’t busy mourning the fact that June 6 wasn’t the apocalypse. we got something for your monkey ass. This week we get to sit down with a band that has played with everyone from Pigmy Love Circus to The Broadways. This week we’re proud to bring you some time with the Windy City’s own Cougars.

For those of you who don’t know this band (and won’t take the time to listen to the songs) I’ll attempt to explain their sound. Cougars are similar to a violent death scene in a zombie movie or a baby seal getting clubbed to death. It’s pounding, never extremely fast and it continues to bludgeon you till your eyes bleed (oh and they have horns too). And just like the finer things, like zombie flicks or seal skin slippers, their sound may not be for everyone. But, for those of us who like this music, it’s second to none.

So be sure to check it out as we have TWO EXCLUSIVES THIS WEEK. First, we have a new, unreleased Cougars track off of the upcoming Thick Records compilation. Make no mistake, this is NOT a Pillow Talk b-side, this is a newly recorded Cougars masterpiece. Also, we have a NEW CONTEST where you can enter to win a copy of Pillow Talk (the Cougars latest album) as well as some cool Cougars stuff. Be sure to listen to the first and last four minutes (before the first and last song) of the broadcast to get entry rules. As always we love this internet thing so be sure to say “hi” at, on our comments section or on MySpace. See you lazy bastards next week.

Interview with The Loved Ones – Podcast 21

Posted by rich on June 6, 2006

So, you’re back, eh? Well, since you keep coming back, I guess we have to keep providing your lazy ass with stuff to listen to. This week’s interview comes from a night of hard work (read as: sitting around the whole night as the band shuffled around the interview time). However, it was totally worth it as we got to sit down in the back of a van/truck/tour bus thing with Philadelphia’s favorite stepsons, The Loved Ones.

For those of you who don’t know, The Loved Ones are three totally awesome (and totally varying in height) guys who have played in several awesome bands (Paint it Black, Trial by Fire and The Curse). Somehow, through construction and a shared love of alcohol, they came together to form a band that blends heavy songs with pop melodies. Sure other bands have said they do that, but The Loved Ones actually do it. Oh, and they don’t suck either.

Also, we don’t have a new contest this week but we will be continuing last weeks Teenage Bottlerocket/Red Scare contest (as it has two winners it should take up two weeks, right?). Anyhow if you want to enter shoot us an e-mail at, send us a message on MySpace or see our comments section. And next week we’ll return with more AWESEOME PRIZES!! So, enjoy and remember to keep those e-mails coming.
