This week on Dying Scene Radio, Bob Noxious interviews Black Cat Attack in his unkempt garage with his shoes and air conditioner off. The Ajax, Ontario female-fronted death punks are out on tour, in support of their latest record, Bright Side of the Moon, making their way up and down the U.S. eastern seaboard, chatting with Bob at his home in Tampa, in between their Florida dates. Bobby Pickles is in on the conversation too via phone, and that’s just fine with him, because he gets to practice zero discretion, bombing them from afar with blathering idiocy, leaving Bob to deal with the uncomfortable mess, he created. The Bobs also speak with Neil Mitchell, bass/vocalist of the UK melodic punk act Templeton Pek – slated to release their latest record New Horizons on July 24th through Hardline Entertainment. Neil compares his experience recording the album to that of a pilgrimage, traveling to Hermosa Beach, even using the same bass guitar that Jason Thirsk used to lay the tracks for the Pennywise anthem “Bro Hymn”. Bobby says, “yeah, except you stormed the church, grabbed the crucifix off the wall and played it.” Neil adds, “and then we tried to steal it, but they wouldn’t let us.” Episode 24’s recurring themes: bias wikipedia editors and Bob’s innate ability to coin words/phrases. Also, Bobby mistakenly covers an article published by The Hard Times, which is essentially punk rock’s Onion.
