Flashback: March 2018

I visited the super secret lair of Harder Than Contra, the legendary band known for their epic orchestral metal renditions of classic video game music and got the low-down on the inner workings of the machine. A truly awesome conversation and a really fun episode. So fun and awesome, in fact, that I had to steal it from myself and repost it on a different show! So if you didn't get the chance to check out the show from On The Edge, here's your chance to hear it in all its classic glory! And when they finally finish their long awaited (at least by me) album, We'll do another live session. But until then...

I was recently honored with an invitation to meet up with Scott Pivarnick  on Suffocation's Death Chopping North America/Farewell Frank tour when they played Seattle. We discussed his company, SP Custom Guitars, and the increasing role he has been playing in building custom axes to several legendary metal guitarists and bassists. In addition to that, we chatted about his role as guitar tech for Suffocation and Possessed, and his gig as a guitarist for OG Metal Band False Prophet! Needless to say, Scott is a busy dude and his talents put him at the forefront of many projects! This episode was a blast to produce, Scott is super cool, and his guitars are absolutely amazing! Be sure to check them out on all his social media sites! Special thanks to Bradly Miranda for the assistance with the mix!

A long time ago, in a studio not far away, a legendary band took over the On The Edge Studios and delivered an absolutely epic interview and live performance session. Fast forward, a year and a half later. They return. Same host, same studio. Different show. This time, as guests on Misery Point Radio, we discuss the new album, their recent touring schedule, random awesomeness, and once again get treated to a live, in-studio acoustic performance. Worth noting that the last song in the set has never been recorded before this session. 

And in a ghostly turn of events, there were some audio and equipment issues that resulted in some lost audio, but the Fibs, being the uncategorizeable Punk Rock/Rock n Rollers that they are, said "Put it out. Nobody cares."

Just one more reason to fucking love The Fibs. No excuses, no apologies, no conformity. No looking back.

Emmy-Winning performing and recording artist Jeff Tassin invited me to his lair, Jeff Tassin Studios, for an awesome conversation about his life in the music and television business. We discussed his start in the early days, his various recording and performing projects, his numerous awards, his studio, and his current role as producer and mentor to many talented musicians. His latest project, keeping up on its seventh year anniversary (Oct 30), is his Songwriter's showcase, a weekly gig that gives artists a forum to get their material to the world and play in front of people and work on their craft in real time. After the interview, I headed to the show and captured some great audio that will be featured in its own episode in a couple of weeks. So you'll have to stay tuned for that one!

I'm joined by Chris Adkins, who plays in the trifecta of awesomeness consisting of Acoustic project The Royal Pain, melodic punk outfit Phasers On Kill, and the legendary hometown and international heroes MxPx. Co-hosted by my studio wizard friend Bradly Miranda, we have an awesome hangout session and discuss how Chris manages to juggle all three acts and maintain his sanity. We also get an epic solo acoustic performance which features an amazing Descendants cover as well as two other killer cuts, one of which features Brad on the nut crusher (cajon) and Brad's brother Brian on bass. There is also video that will be coming real soon!

This episode also was originally aired for the On The Edge podcast, but was always intended to be a part of Misery Point. When it became apparent there woud be a delay in the Misery Point Launch, I chose to air the episode on On The Edge so that Chris could share with his peeps! So pulling double duty for two shows! If you didn't get a chance to check it out yet, here's your chance! Thanks again to Bradly Miranda for mixing the performance portion of the episode!

During a recent show at Club 7, I got to hang out backstage with Whiskey River, an absolutely epic Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band. An awesome discussion about the band, what they're about, what sets them apart from other tribute bands, and what their ultimate goal is. I was able to capture some pretty good live audio, so be sure to check out the three songs at the end of the interview, including an absolutely jaw dropping rendition of the most famous of all Skynyrd songs. Due to the location of the interview, the background is a little noisy, but that just adds to the awesomeness! Be sure to check them out on all their social media pages! And if you get a chance to see them live, do it!!!

Be sure to check them ot with Randy Hansen On October 20 at Emerald Downs!!!
