Punknews Podcast: Episodes 239 & 240

Posted by adam on Monday, April 13, 2015 at 9:15 PM (EDT)
Podcast Two episodes coming at you from the Punknews Podcast tonight, featuring damn near everyone. On Episode 239 regulars John Gentile and Ricky Frankel are joined by the Best Midwestern podcast hosts Scott Heisel and Greg Simpson for a comic book style team-up, in which there's a big fight over some misunderstanding and and everyone eventually puts aide their differences to punch Dr. Doom in the face. At least that's what I imagine happened, as I wasn't there for the recording. On Episode 240 Adam White rejoins John and Ricky to chat about Gang Of Four Andy Gil's comments on the Viet Cong cancellation, music from Tartar Control, and stories about Fucked Up, Tau Cross and Strung Out.

These episodes feature music from The Mouthbreathers. Dead Kennedys, and Tartar Control.

Podcast Life tip: Never, ever record an April Fools episode of your horribly late podcast with the expectation that said podcast will be up to date by the time the calendar needs it to be. Silliness aside, this episode of the Punknews Podcast features John Gentile, Adam White and Ricky Frankel chatting about the Viet Cong cancellation controversy, Danzig's upcoming releases, the Ottawa Explosion, moving street dates, new Mischief Brew and more. We also discuss exactly what a fair price for a show is.

This episode features music from... I'm so sorry. I blame John.

Posted by adam on Monday, April 6, 2015 at 10:10 PM (EDT)

We also tackle the upcoming Record Store Day, the feedback to the announcement of our goofy cassette tape, and more.

Punknews Podcast: Episode 235

Posted by adam on Sunday, March 29, 2015 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Podcast Everyone does things they regret. We regret trying to record this episode of the Punknews Podcast over shitty hotel wifi. John Gentile, Adam White and Mark Little try and maintain some semblance of professionalism as we chat about The Dwarves being hacked, Menzingers videos, the new record from War On Women, and Bad Religion hitting the road with OFF!.

We play a tune from Night Birds on this episode, more than usual (they DO provide our theme music after all).

We talk with the one and only Josh Caterer, singer of Chicago's punk legends the Smoking Popes. The band's record Born to Quit turned 20 on Capitol Records this year (21 if you are cool enough to own the Johann's Face version) and we talk about the history of their signing to a major label with the help of the Green Day bump, as well as delving far back into what music Josh grew up on and how much his parents played a part in the band's sound to come. He also reveals some exclusive stories behind songs that have never been heard in interviews before.
