Interview: Frank Iero talks solo project FrnkIero AndThe Cellabration

Posted by DebNYC on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 4:56 PM (PST)

Frank Iero, the man of many projects which share little in common but his name has treated the punk world to near-perfectly tracked album in his debut release “Stomachaches” under the solo project moniker FrnkIero AndThe Cellabration. Emotions run high in these lyrics, which is no surprise, considering that their composer was in crippling pain for the majority of the recording process.

Said to be kept in their rawest form possible, Iero took the album out for a test drive this past autumn on a month-long tour with The Used and Taking Back Sunday, and has been finding them very well received.

Frankie was cool enough to spare DS some time prior to his wrap-up headlining show at Metro Gallery in Baltimore to discuss fathers, zombies, trolls and oh yeah, a little bit about music as well. His interview is below (and can also be viewed on video here.)

While at Riot Fest in Denver last month, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes‘ frontman Spike Slawson recently caught up with the folks at New Noise Magazine (or maybe vice versa) for an expectedly entertaining video interview. As expected, they talk about the Gimmes’ latest album, “Are We Not Men? We Are DIVA!” as well as Slawson’s own Uke-Hunt project (which put out one of the more underrated albums of the year in my opinion). Check out the interview below.

“Are We Not Men? We Are DIVA!” was released on May 13th, while the Uke-Hunt full length was released June 10th. Both appear on Fat Wreck Chords.

DS Interview: Oh Snap! talks influences, Spokane punk, and being awkward

Posted by Carson Winter on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 4:28 PM (PST)

Oh Snap! is a local band at heart. They can be found in bars across Spokane, WA, making noise and guzzling domestic beers to audiences of a dozen or so punks. Ten Years Too Late is their first EP and contains the kind of irreverent and wistful punk rock that a lot of us grew up on. I was lucky enough to sit down via e-mail with the band and talk about Spokane, WA, the beginnings of Oh Snap!, and their passion for perversion.

The full interview is below.

DS Interview: The Dollyrots (Kelly Ogden) plus one

Posted by DebNYC on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 5:43 PM (PST)

Childhood friends (now spouses) guitarists and vocalists Kelly Ogden and Luis Cabezas formed the Floridian-born band, The Dollyrots (originally named No Chef,) over a decade ago as a response to disillusionment with the Bush election in 2000. Having relocated to music capital Los Angeles and signing with punk legends Lookout Records, the band morphed through multiple percussion lineups and label switches (they wisely abandoned the financially troubled Lookout for Joan Jett’s label, Blackheart Records in 2006, finally foraging out on their own in 2010 via a widely successful Kickstarter campaign).

Their latest effort, “Barefoot and Pregnant,” recorded on their own label, Arrested Youth, while Kelly was expecting their first child, River, has received respectable ratings and has really resonated with their fiercely loyal fanbase.

Upon the wrap-up of their successful U.S. run and prior to heading over to Europe to tour with the likes of Buzzcocks, Kelly was good enough to spare Dying Scene a copious amount of her time to chat about old age, fan relations and vintage punk behavior. Her interview is below.
