This week on Dying Scene Radio, Bob Noxious and Bobby Pickles connect with Joey Cape live from his van. The three discuss Joey’s new solo record, Stitch Puppy, the story behind the song, “Tracks”, and what it was like to record his latest acoustic album using a similar formula to that of his label, One Week Records. Bobby uses his “Wop Dar” to uncover the Italian roots of the Lagwagon frontman, insinuates that, like most musicians, Joey is inherently lazy, and then asks Mr. Cape a very pretentious question, which Joey has not the authority to answer adequately, given that the punk rock ethos transcends ideas and is really a part of one’s DNA. But, Joey agrees with Bob’s ethos, being a 46 year old man who lives his life like a 17 year old boy.
SYNOPSIS OF BANTER: Jason 3D of The Jasons designed a FAT ENZO t-shirt depicting The Bobs getting killed by The Jasons. Lou Koller, frontman of NYHC greats, Sick Of It All, speaks with ten year old Elliott of Little Punk People, and Bobby wants to make him a DSR war correspondent because he’s interviewed many of the same people as Bob and he’s a much more talented interviewer. The Bobs discuss their impending full-coverage of FEST 14 in Gainesville and Pre-FEST in Tampa. Bobby doesn’t know who Mikey Erg or Ronnie James Dio is. The Svetlanas are from “Mother Russia” just as PigPen are comprised of more bacon than Bob puts down during breakfast. Why does EVERYBODY think the iconic Motörhead frontman, Lemmy Kilmister, is going to die? Bob says if Lemmy isn’t really afraid to die, he’d have played a fourth song in Austin. Bob thinks he might need to go back to the dark liquors. Bob says, “Lemmy will live forever and what kind of world are we going to leave for Lemmy?”
Episode 28’s recurring theme: bad/spot-on accents, artists who’ve recorded records in one-week’s time, and Bobby’s three keys to success – Persistence, Arrogance, and Stupidity, with major emphasis on the latter.
Hear all the incessant blathering, plus this week’s new music and headlines, below.
