Ep 34 Dying Scene Radio – Pickles gets personal with “Stupid Martini” of NJ female fronted horror punks, Thee Money $hot – RIP Brandon Carlisle

This week on Dying Scene RadioElena Venetia takes the week off, so Bobby Pickles conducts the podcast from Jersey City, NJ with longtime friend Adrien “Stupid Martini” De Martini, bassist of the female fronted horror punk act, Thee Money $hot. Things get personal, as los bastardos spin tales of atheism, Florida, talentless musicianship, and the untimely death of Teenage Bottlerocket drummer Brandon Carlisle. Bobby also openly apologizes for his wasted, unprofessional antics on last week’s episode; suffice it to say, Bobby doesn’t remember Halloween, but Stupid Martini is quick to remind Pickles of the Halloween two years prior. Have you ever shat your pants at a costume party? FUN FACT: Bobby has! (With special commentary from Mexico City’s Anti-Venöm, Cincinnati punk rockers, UnderTipper, and the new, surf-obsessed, totally-from-California punk band, The All Brights).

Torso (Hardcore/D-beat) stream debut album “Sono Pronta a Morire”

Torso is a new hardcore and D-beat punk band from the Bay Area that features members of hardcore act PUNCH.  They are streaming their debut album Sono Pronta a Morire in its entirety, and you can give it a listen below.   It’s a little more straightforward hardcore punk than the blast beat powerviolence of PUNCH, but still has the same anger and aggression, and rips just as hard.

Sono Pronta a Morire was released on September 7th via Sorry State Records.

Introducing New Punk ‘n Roll Act: The Devil’s Troubadours

Elena and Bobby talk genres, germany and kangaroo va-jay-jays with Nathan Gray of boysetsfire on this week’s episode of Dying Scene Radio

This week on Dying Scene RadioElena Venetia reports from the field, travelling by Chinatown Bus from NYC to Delaware to interview Nathan Gray, frontman of the post-hardcore/punk band, boysetsfireBobby Pickles joins the conversation from the comfort of his studio, where he is safe to interrogate the singer from afar. Then Masked Intruder bumps the pair before their concert at NYC’s Webster Hall. Apparently, a hapless sound technician spilled his beer on the soundboard just prior to soundcheck, killing all hope of podcasting with the criminal quartet. How punk rock is that! But, Bobby vows to get the scoop next week during FEST 14, or go to jail trying. Episode 32′s recurring theme: Kangaroos and their multitude of va-jay-jays.

Introducing Garage Punk Act: The Sangomas (full album stream)

The Sangomas are one of those bands that walks a fine line between punk and good old fashion sweaty rock. Their brand new full-length “Giddyup & Destroy” is titled perfectly. Thirteen tracks of punk infused rock ‘n roll anthems and you can enjoy the pleasure of streaming all of them below.

Introducing Street Punk Band: Lazy Class (full EP stream)

So Lazy Class has been putting out music for a few years now but I didn’t discover them until today so I figured if they’re “new” to me they’ll likely be “new” to a lot of you as well. The threesome from Poland plays straight up street-punk and if it weren’t for the slight Polish accent you’d easily think of them as an early 90′s Epitaph band. They just released a new EP titled “Hell Of San Domingo” through Rebellion Records and you can stream the entire thing below. —————————————-

Introducing Ska-Punk Act: Ill Gotten Gains (full album stream)

Fans of gritty crossover ska/street-punk, here’s one you’re going to want to check out.

Give the album a listen below.

Introducing DC Punk Act: Free Children Of Earth (members of Trial By Fire, Darkest Hour, The Explosion, Majority Rule)

Free Children Of Earth is a Washington DC band formerly known as Beasts of No Nation and featuring members of Trial By Fire, Darkest Hour, The Explosion, and Majority Rule. With a pedigree like this one, its not surprising that the band plays politically charged hardcore punk and on November 20th you’ll get a full dose of just that in the form of a new LP titled Terminal Stasis.

The album will be released through Cricket Cemetery Records and you can get yourself a little taste by streaming its first single “No Broken Circles” below.

Introducing Punk ‘N Roll Act: Quarter Tank (full album stream)

Six songs into Quarter Tank‘s new full length “We Brought The Fire” I still can’t decide if this band is punk, heavy metal or hard rock. And that’s turning out to be a good thing because the truth is, it doesn’t matter – they kicks ass. The foursome has been playing together since 2006 but “We Brought The Fire” is the group’s recording debut and they just released earlier this month. If you consider yourself a fan of most things punk, metal and hard rock do yourself a favor and stream the entire album below.

BABES IN TOYLAND talk next record, current lineup and more with Elliott of Little Punk People in NYC

Kat, Lori & Clara of Babes in Toyland sat with Elliott Fullam of Little Punk People at their Irving Plaza show in NYC and talked about how their new record will probably sound heavier than their previous releases along with how well things are going with their new bassist Clara. They also discuss a lot more in the video link below.

The band was incredibly sweet to Elliott and they even gave him a big shout-out in the middle of their set. The lights went on him and they had him stand up and wave back at everyone and the band, which was amazing. And the band played an energetic set to a full house of enthusiastic fans who screamed along to favorites such as “Bruise Violet” and “Oh Yea”. Their new bassist Clara showed a persona of total bliss (we also witnessed her proud father watching the show in bliss as he was sitting right near us) and she held her own alongside the ferocious performance of drummer Lori Barbero and singer/guitarist Kat Bjelland, whose vocals sent shockwaves throughout the venu. Babes in Toyland are currently on their reunion tour which ends at FUN FUN FUN Fest in Austin, Texas on November 6th.

And they signed Elliott’s record! Thanks again, gals!!!
