Bob recalls watching the World Series with Bad Religion’s Brett Guerewitz while challenging the podcast listeners to send Bobby their Top 10 Most Important Punk Bands for him to study up on.
Bob then sits down and chats with the infamous Andrew WK before his performance in St. Petersburg, FL. They discuss recording with LMFAO, self-motivation, how the legendary death metal band Obituary helped form Andrew’s band…and what else? Partying!
Bobby reports on the week’s punk rock news then professes his love for 80′s music icons, Hall & Oates. Much debate ensues on whether Green Day has, or has not, been inducted in to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Bobby turns to his bum Tony, who is quickly proving his worth as a bona-fide fact checker.
BAND SPOTLIGHT: Crime City
This week’s BAND SPOTLIGHT artist is Vancouver-based side project punkers, Crime City, who recently released their self-titled debut EP. Three out of the four capable canucks have a “meeting with the Bobs” to discuss the band’s origins, their obvious comparisons to Propagandhi and the problems faced by Canadian musicians wanting to tour throughout the United States.
Bob also speaks with punk-author, Bob Suren, who will be releasing his first book entitled “Crate Digger: An Obsession with Punk Records” in June 2015 through Microcosm Publishing. The music inspires the memories in this memoir about growing up as a punk rocker, as told through the author’s record collection.
