Punknews Podcast: Episode 216 with Scotty from Tankcrimes

Posted by adam on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Podcast After nearly a month of entirely mundane but nonetheless paralyzing technical issues, we're back with the first of four new episodes we'll unleash over the next week. On this round, John Gentile, Tom Crandle and Mark Little are joined by Scotty Heath of the mighty Oakland-based record label Tankcrimes for the show. Along with a discussion of the killer year Tankcrimes had, Heath shares his perspective on what it's like to run an independent label in today's age. On the news the group has an extended discussion on the Joyce Manor stage diving controversy, the new video from Mischief Brew, new music from Restorations, Rancid Meghan O'Neil leaving Punch, the big reaction to the latest Mastodon video and more.

We play music this episode by Iron Reagan, Dystopia and GHOUL.

Punknews Podcast: Episode 215

Posted by adam on Friday, October 10, 2014 at 10:30 AM (EDT)
Podcast On this, the 215th episode of the Punknews Podcast, Adam White and John Gentile are missing a third co-host and the lack of structure results in one of the most random, tangent-chasing conversations in the show's history. We talk punk doctors, expose our complete lack of understanding of microbiology, chat about the Descendents documentary, D.O.A.'s failure at breaking up, the new GWAR vocalist, the new Sonic Avenues video and much more.

We play music this episode by Solids, Huevos Rancheros and Eddie and the Hot Rods.

Punknews Podcast: Episodes 213 & 214

Posted by adam on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 2:30 PM (EDT)
Podcast Did you know it's National Podcast Day? Apparently that's a thing. I can't believe you all went into work.

This week in celebration of the holiday I learned about on Twitter all of 6 minutes ago, we bring you two new episodes of the venerable Punknews Podcast. On Episode 213, Adam White, John Gentile and Ricky Frankel take on some early September stories, including the man jailed for posting Exodus lyrics, the Red Scare compilation, the new LP from Rick Johnson and Dan Potthast, the trailer for Laura Jane Grace's AOL series, and the D.O.A. malt liquor. Then on Episode 214, John, Adam and Mark Little chat about upcoming music from the Buzzcocks and Mariachi El Bronx, we ask why Sick Of It All needs a lyric video, and we fawn over the new Dead Milkmen track and Jello Biafra's record collection.

Episode 213 features vintage music from The Flames and Simply Saucer, while episode 214 features tunes from Nik Turner and Tropical Dripps.
