Rest in Power to Gared O'Donnell. This conversation originally was published in 2012 and was one of the first conversations I had for this podcast. He was a special human and I am saddened that he is no longer with us. Listen to this episode and listen to the entire PMFS catalog...it's well worth your time.

I am very pleased to welcome prolific solo artist, Emma Ruth Rundle to the podcast. She just just released an incredible new LP called Engine of Hell that is some of her best work, so I had to dive in and chat about the early 2000's in the LA music scene, her tumultuous childhood and her proclivity to collaborate. Learn more about your ad-choices a…
 
My new friend Chris Teti from The World Is...and Silver Bullet Studios ducks into the podcast this week with amazing results! We dive into DIY transitions, eclectic music tastes and why his grandmother thinks tour is like American Idol. Joking aside, Chris is a very devoted dude to the DIY music scene and I hope you enjoy the conversation! Learn mo…
 
You read right? You should because it's like...really fun and stuff. One person you should definitely become intimately familiar with is the author, music nerd and all around good guy, Dan Ozzi. He just released a new book called Sellout in which he chronicles all the up's and down's of bands from our beloved indie community jumping into the big po…
 
A man of many talents, Geoff Garlock from Orchid, Panthers and his most recent project Low Estate comes to hang with us this week. He's also the host of such podcasts like Docs Till Death and The Cannon Canon so as you can see, he's a busy dude. We discuss his history with comedy, growing up with Connecticut hardcore and the "glory days" of Vice. I…
 
What a damn band. Snarls hails from Columbus, Ohio and released an incredible debut last year that I fell in love with so naturally, I had to pick the brain of someone in the band so here we are. Chlo White sings and plays guitar in the band and we discussed her suburban upbringing, emo and wearing your heart on your sleeve. This was an emotional c…
 
I'd love to welcome my friend Karl Hensel on the podcast today. He runs the show at Kings Road Merch (you have undoubtedly ordered vinyl or shirts from them in the past) and plays in a band called Desperate Acts. He's a music industry lifer (with Kings Road and previously with Bridge Nine Records) and spent a lot of time on the road with Holding On…
 
Hot damn! We have Brian Cook from Russian Circles, Botch and most recently, his newly released solo project Torment & Glory on the podcast this week. I have admired all of his musical endeavors (if you haven't, also listen to Roy) and was glad to be able to wander around in his brain and discuss why Botch covered a classical song, his sexual identi…
 
Dale from The (damn!) Melvins is hanging with us on the podcast today. It's a wide ranging chat that hits on life in Aberdeen, playing the drums and working within the major label system not to mention how the band has been able to make a career out of being adventurous musically. Dale also does a killer Keith Morris impression as well. Learn more …
 
Mr. Mike Kinsella is on the damn podcast today. The man behind bands like American Football, Owen, Cap' N' Jazz and Owls agreed to let me punish him for an hour and I was happy to oblige. We discuss the unexpected rise of American Football, being resilient and of course, midwest emo. In all honesty, I was thrilled to have this conversation because …
 
Hell yes, kick back and chill out with your new favorite punk band, Lurk! Kevin Kiley is the vocalist of Lurk from Chicago who is a real cool dude and we had a cool conversation. If you are sensing a theme here, you get it. We discuss his life in figuring out how to be in a "real band", his life working on the railways (no joke) and the Chicago mus…
 
Uncle Wally! I am incredibly thrilled to have everyone's favorite hardcore hero, Walter Schreifels from Quicksand/Rival Schools and so much more, on the podcast. We dive right into it with crazy stories from the major label days of Quicksand, being a "zen" dude, straight edge and longevity in music. It's reflective, fun and informative! Let's start…
 
9 years of punk/hardcore/DIY celebration and I couldn't be more happy to continue on this journey with one of my favorite hardcore bands around right now, One Step Closer. Ryan sings for them and I had to punish him about my undying love for OSC, the PA hardcore scene, skateboarding and being a "serious" band. It's been an incredible journey and lo…
 
All hail Jeromes Dream! The kings of OG screamo have been back in action since 2019 and now are collecting all of their older material for a deluxe re-release on Iodine Recordings so in turn, I had to have my old friend and drummer of the band on the show. Erik reminisces about being in the early days of the early 2000's screamo scene, existing as …
 
We have a treat for all of you skram-heads out there (just joking, I can't stand that term), Justin Fornof from Wristmeetrazor is on the podcast! We discuss the bands unconventional origins (none of them live in the same area), the Las Vegas hardcore scene and being a "scene" band. It's well worth your time so pull up a chair and hang out with us. …
 
We take a deep dive today into Salt Lake City and specifically with my new friend, Gentry Densley. He plays in a band called Iceburn (and many more) and is a staple in the SLC heavy music scene and I couldn't have been more excited to pick his brain about the band and scene in general. We also discuss Iceburn's tour with The Offspring (yep, that ha…
 
Belgian Hardcore represent! I have Colin H. van Eeckhout from Amenra (who are much more than a hardcore band mind you) on the podcast today to talk about so many things including the longevity of the band (over 20 years!), transitioning into being a "full time" band and of course, the Belgian hardcore scene and him getting into heavy music. I just …
 
Everyone's favorite class clown of metal, Adam D is on the pod this week! He's an incredibly prolific musician playing guitar in Killswitch Engage and Times of Grace and a producer of many of your favorite records. We dig in deep to his first band, Aftershock, his life in and around the Massachusetts hardcore scene as well as his sense of humor. Go…
 
Oh hell yes, Matt from The Bronx/Mariachi El Bronx is hanging with me on the podcast today. We get into it by discussing his life growing up in Los Angeles, how important 90's punk was to him as he started to develop his own music tastes and the insane times that he experienced when The Bronx was in the middle of a major label bidding war at the st…
 
The man who invented "emo rap" is on the show today, Joe Mulherin from Nothing, Nowhere! Obviously I am poking fun a bit at the hyperbole there but this chat was spectacular. Joe is a real ass dude that has a lot of experience within the punk/hardcore subculture, is vegan and straight edge which maybe from the surface...you wouldn't pick up on. We …
 
I love bringing episodes like this to you all because it came DIRECTLY FROM A LISTENER. Matt Frazier plays drums in the really great indie rock band Local Natives and he grew up in and around the punk/hardcore (specifically in the "Chain Reaction-core" days) scene so we dig deep into that while also discussing his life growing up in the Inland Empi…
 
The DUDE is on the podcast this week. By the DUDE I mean Mr. Mike Schliebaum who is the lead shredder in metal stalwarts Darkest Hour, Be Well and Battery. He's an incredibly prolific musician and someone who I call a friend. We talk about his new signature guitar, being an "asshole" and how he finds himself fitting in. What an episode! Learn more …
 
This week on the podcast we have the legend Kevin Seconds on the show. We discuss the re-issue of their seminal record, The Crew and what it was like growing up in Reno. He also talks about the fact he never wants to be the "old guy on the porch" when it comes to music. I couldn't be more excited to share so I hope you enjoy! Learn more about your …
 
A Pacific Northwest hardcore/metal legend, Greg Anderson is on the show this week. He played in Engine Kid, Brotherhood, currently runs Southern Lord Records and also plays in Sunn 0))) and Goatsnake. In short, he's done a ton of rad stuff within independent music, so I asked him all the questions. We covered the inception of the PNW hardcore scene…
 
New England Metal and Hardcore staple Brian Fair from Shadows Fall/Overcast is on the show this week! I am VERY excited as I have admired his work for many years and worked alongside of him when he played in Shadows Fall (I worked at Century Media while they were releasing their earlier LP's) but never got to spend time with him. We changed that an…
 
Today we have Brian Moss the band behind Hanalei and the underrated band, The Ghost. I love both of his bands so when the opportunity to have him on the show came up, I jumped at it. Brian and I discuss his experience being a working class band, his occupation as a teacher and how important the outdoors is to his well-being. He just released his la…
 
Mike Hranica from The Devil Wears Prada joins me on the podcast today. I have always been fascinated by this band from their meteoric rise to capture the attention of the early 2000's metalcore/Christian scenes and moving quickly onto the Warped Tour stages across the country...the band definitely always had something to say. Now, heading into the …
 
Sensefield is an amazing band. They were huge in my early years of understanding that I could indeed listen to music that wasn't just screaming at me. I had the opportunity to bring on Chris Evanson the guitarist of the band on the podcast to discuss their "lost" record on Warner Brothers, his exposure to South Bay punk and the idea of them being a…
 
Let's talk about a cool new band okay? I fell in love with Teenage Wrist in 2018 when they dropped their first LP called "Chrome Neon Jesus" on my unsuspecting ears and it's this weird combo of Failure/Hum/Hoobastank (no joking) but simply put it just rocks. They just dropped a new heater called "Earth Is A Black Hole" and I had to have someone in …
 
Boy, this chat was a treat. Vince Averill is the vocalist for Cross Control and one of the co-hosts of We Watch Wrestling Podcast but his roots in punk/hardcore go deep with him putting out the first Grade 7" as well as the classic Ottawa/Jihad split 12" (a classic in my book). I found out this info all in short order so I had to have him on the sh…
 
The core is strong in this one. I have Jason Stewart, one of the co-hosts from the prolific podcast How Long Gone. He also is a DJ operating under the moniker of "Them Jeans" as well as a man in the culinary scene working with a ton of different brands. In short, he's a cool dude. What makes him even cooler is our shared history within the OC hardc…
 
There Were Wires. Many of you probably never checked the band out when they were active and playing shows but, now is your chance to get familiar. Jaime Mason was the vocalist of the dark hardcore/punk/metal band from the Northeast (specifically the Martha's Vineyard hardcore scene...which is a hilarious thing to type) and has just recently re-rele…
 
So stoked to talk to Curtis Running Rabbit Lefthand who is a member of the Blackfoot tribe located in and around the Calgary, Alberta area in Canada. He's one of the founders of the Wild Rose Hardcore Festival as well as working with the IRIM organization to get members of the Indiginous community with the music industry as a whole. His POV is very…
 
As you grow older, your musical taste changes and evolves and I for one, welcome it. You don't have to listen to aggressive music all day, every day. Of course, you don't need me to tell you that but the past few years I have gotten really into dreamy soundscapes and our guest this week creates those in spades. His name is Jamison Isaak and plays u…
 
Oh boy, got a great one this week for you with the So Cal hardcore legend (my words, not his) Joe Nelson. He's the original vocalist of Ignite, road dog for bands like Quicksand, Insted and more. He also played in bands like The Killing Flame and is gearing up to release a new LP from another one of his musical projects, Triggerman. He is also resp…
 
I love David Farrier. His documentary Tickled was one of the most captivating and bizarre stories I have ever seen put to film and from then I just seemed to encounter his work across the web. Fast forward a few years later and our paths crossed when friend (and previous guest of the show, Aaron Harris from Isis) connected us over email and then, i…
 
It's good to admit when you are wrong and I did that with Dylan on this weeks episode. I wrote off Cloud Nothings for no reason beyond my own personal misconceptions and boy, that was silly. They are a great band and I had to have Dylan Baldi, the lead singer/brainchild, from Cloud Nothings to discuss many things including life in Cleveland, librar…
 
Sludge metal/doom/stoner...whatever you want to call them, Eyehategod is a completely unique and incredible band which is why I was happy to throw open the podcast studio doors (aka the internet) and invite the vocalist, Mike Williams in for a chat. We discuss nihilism within the bands music, how his reputation sometimes precedes him and living for…
 
Podcasts are cool and today I have the host of one of my favorite podcasts around, The Memory Palace, Nate Dimeo on the show. I knew he had a connection to punk and hardcore, but after our conversation it's WAYYYYYY deeper than I could have ever imagined. We discuss pursuing art as a career, Ebullition Records and being a full time podcaster. Liste…
 
Full Of Hell rules. Dylan Walker is a nice human and we made some podcast magic here. I was stoked to bring Dylan on and discuss his upbringing in rural Pennsylvania, the importance of Hydrahead Records and living life in van (and being happy about it)! Let's do this!

It's Small Brown Bike time! I love this band and saw them many times in the early 2000's (and Mike was actually one of the first interviews I ever did when I was writing for zines, remember those?) and fell in love with the band. They've subsequently released more amazing music and been active here and there when shows were a thing. Mike had been o…
 
Let's get aggressive. Chase Mason is the vocalist for the punishing desert band, Gatecreeper (who just released an absolute BANGER of a record called "An Unexpected Reality") and is a great dude. We discuss him growing up in Arizona, his recovery journey through addiction and his wide ranging taste in music. Let's GOOOOO! Listen to The PunkRock MBA…
 
A little bit left of center guest but a great one nonetheless is Emily Gullickson who has made her life by exploring her passion of horse racing and betting. I discovered her through a podcast called "Gamblers" where in she tells her story but most interestingly, speaks about her history in punk/hardcore. I reached out to her to find out more and h…
 
Man, do I have a treat for you. This week we have Pete Appleby who played in Count Me Out and Renee Heartfelt, both of them who were incredibly important bands to me (and many others). We dig in with Pete to discuss how both bands may have been a few years too "early", the trials and tribulations with the business side of music and his life as a de…
 
If you haven't heard of Spanish Love Songs, you my friend...are in for a treat. Their latest LP "Brave Faces Everyone" was one of my favorites of last year and I wanted to bring Dylan (the lead vocalist/guitarist) on the show to discuss their rise in popularity in Europe, comparing the movie/music industry and being a contrarian by nature. Listen a…
 
I love Thou. This is a band that took awhile for me to grab onto but once I did (recently mind you) it's taken hold and won't let go. I had to have Bryan, the vocalist, on the show to punish him about my obsession. We dove into his metal core roots, life in Louisiana and the DIY spirit that has permeated his life. Learn more about your ad-choices a…
 
I am honored to have on a great human and thoughtful music critic, author, podcast host and all around wordsmith, Hanif Abdurraqib. I felt compelled to reach out to him after loving his season of the incredible music podcast, Lost Notes, as I knew he had connections to our beautiful DIY punk/hardcore scene. We dive in to his life in Columbus, remem…

My friend Tim Riley from Souvenirs is on the podcast this week on the heels of the release of their newest LP called "Love For the Lack Of It", released by Other People Records. We roll up our sleeves and get into being welcoming, balancing creativity with "real life" and his battle with rheumatoid arthritis. It's quite a journey, so enjoy! Learn m…
 
I love the feeling of discovering new music, even when a band isn't technically "new" and Svalbard, did just that for me this year. I had to have Serena on the show, so we made it happen. Their new LP "When I Die, Will I Get Better" blew me away so Serena and I discuss that, the UK press, being an outsider and of course, roller coasters. Dive in an…
