DS Interview: Spanish Love Songs in the UK

Dylan Slocum is tired.  Spanish Love Songs are on the penultimate date of a two-and-a-half week jaunt around the UK and Europe with Ducking Punches.  Today they have driven to my home town of Milton Keynes, UK from Antwerp, Belgium.  Delays on the Eurostar train on top of the usual rigours of road life seem to be catching up with the band’s singer so it was extremely gracious that he took the time to have the following conversation.

 My best buds and absolute American heroes in Noogy just ended a 6-day Texas stretch with legendary punk band, T.S.O.L., who is currently on tour promoting their 2017 release, The Trigger Complex. I hit Andre (Noogy) up wondering if it would be at all possible to set up an interview with the man who has become one of my idols – novelist, singer, and American demon – Jack Grisham. He and Anthony hit me back a few nights later from San Antonio, in between sets of rocking out with Piňata Protest and Dead 77, to let me know it was on. I was already planning to roadie the show at Three Links (Dallas), and the conceptualization of this conversation began to dawn on me. Did you read the book? (American Demon) Jack Grisham’s nuts! I knew right away that we were going to be best friends. Read that story below. [short read: 1 minute/ long read: 20 minutes]



Inside All Silk Mastering House With Ed Hall (Egos At The Door): Interview, Live Session Premiere

We spend a lot of time covering music here at Dying Scene and not so much looking at the people behind the sounds. Today, we’re going to buck that trend with an interview with mastering engineer and owner of the All Silk Mastering House, Ed Hall.

Ed has spent most of his life in and around the DIY punk scene in the north of England. He’s probably best known as guitarist with the recently disbanded, hugely underrated techcore proggers, Egos At The Door. With Egos, Ed has travelled across Europe and America, allowing him to build a strong network of contacts from the international punk scene.

His latest venture involved the creation of a sonic fantasy lab in an undisclosed location in Colne, Lancashire in the north of the UK. Ed was kind enough to share his experiences setting up the All Silk Mastering House, which has been a complete DIY effort. From construction and decorating, through to fitting the space out with all the necessary gear and, of course, the mastering itself, Ed handles the entire process. He’s an inspiration to all those who long to cast off the shackles of the daily grind and chase their dreams but lack the gusto to take that initial plunge.

Below, you’ll find an interview with Ed, as well as an exclusive look at his latest project – a regular live session from the All Silk Mastering House floor itself. We’ve also thrown in an example of Ed’s recent work with UK garage punks SWEARS’s latest single, Space Invaders.



Interview: David Green (Moonraker) Gives Us a Track by Track Breakdown of The New LP “Lanterns”

Southern California punks Moonraker released their sophomore record Lanterns back in September of this year via Tiny Dragon Music and after having a few months to listen to and digest the album, we wanted to know more about it. So we called up drummer/vocalist David Green and asked all of the questions that were eating away at us! All eleven tracks, dissected and explained by the man himself! If you haven’t heard the album yet, go download it and listen while you read through. If you’re already a fan, listen to it again while you read through, below!



The Offspring apparently still working on new album

The Offspring guitarist Noodles recently gave Junkee an update on the band’s long-awaited new album. He’s quoted as saying:

“Yeah, we’ve been spending a bit of time in the studio with Bob Rock, who worked on our last two albums as well. He’s great, man — we get along with him really well. We’ve got a bunch of new songs that we’re preparing to go in and record right now.

I think there’s a record’s worth in there, but we’re thinking that maybe the songs are just a little too different. We know there’s a song or two on every record that comes out of left-field for us, but it’s more than just a couple this time. Right now, we’re entertaining the idea of doing two records — one where we can put all of these, and another of straight-up Offspring songs.”

The follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By is reportedly set for release next year, and Noodles said a while ago that they were working on two albums, though it’s not clear if it will result in separate or double album(s).

Kyle Trocolla of Kyle Trocolla And The Strangers talks about his new album The Moon USA

Let it be known I am a big fan of Kyle Trocolla‘s work, I have every Two Fisted Law album and have seen TFL at least 8 times. When he came out with his solo album The Stranger in 2016 I thought it was one of the finest acoustic albums I have ever heard and this week I was totally stoked to catch up with him to chat about his most recent album The Moon USA.

Read what he had to say below.



Riverside Odds R.W. Hellborn Talks Speed Punk and their Roots

I first saw Riverside Odds in March of 2018 opening up for The Split Seconds at little punk venue called Connie’s Ric Rac in Philadelphia and they tore the stage apart with their fast aggressive sound. The self dubbed it “Speed-Punk Rock & Roll”, and they deliver it fast hard and without mercy to their adoring fans.

Below are a few words I was recently able to share with front man R.W.Hellborn.



The Offspring working on two new albums?

The Offspring guitarist Noodles guitarist recently talked to Music Feeds about the band’s long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Days Go By, which will be released late this year or next year.

On the status of the record and working with Bob Rock, who is producing it, Noodles said, “Yeah, we’ve been working with Bob on and off on this record for five years, really. But we had a real productive string this year, in the earlier part of the year, we had probably five or six songs that we did just right then and it started to feel like ‘maybe this is the direction we should be going with this record? A little bit more straightforward Offspring stuff’. So we have a whole record or more worth of stuff here — I think we’re looking at making two records out of it — you know, like, splitting ’em up and coming out with a pretty straightforward punk and rock record that sounds like us, and then maybe saving some of the crazier stuff for another record.”

When asked about the “crazier stuff” and what it sounds like, Noodles said, “Well there’s always a song that we do [on each album] — because it’s just fun for us to experiment in the studio where we take different sounds — so sometimes we’ll try some piano or keyboard kind of sound… We have a song that has a lot of horns in it, like a full-on horn section in it, and we’ve been working on that song for a long time. I think that one might be the the one kind of wacky one that we keep on this record, well at least I hope it is! Like, we love this song, it’s such a fun song. It’s a risk to put it out there, but at some point you’ve just gotta say ‘screw it’ man and just go with what you’re feeling and let the chips fall where they may. So I think we’re gonna do that.”

And finally Noodles was asked if there are plans to release new music this year. His response was, “I don’t know, we were hoping to — we were hoping to have something, maybe like a record deal in place this Fall [that’s Spring in Australia], but we don’t have anything — you know, any deals — going. We’ve been talking with a bunch of different labels and distributors, but so far nothing’s really stuck. So we’re not sure how we’re gonna do this. I mean at this point, the way things are distributed, we’re thinking we could even maybe do it ourselves?”



Bad Religion to enter the studio in October?

Bad Religion bassist Jay Bentley apparently revealed to the Croatian website Muzika that the band will enter the studio in October to start recording their long-awaited new album for a spring 2019 release.

Jay also stated in the same interview that the band’s recently-released new song “The Kids Are Alt-Right” and that the new album will sound different than that song. Translated by Dying Scene, Jay said, “This is probably different from what I’ve ever heard of this collective. I mean, we only recorded two songs, one that everyone heard and one that does not sound like it.”

The follow-up to 2013’s True North will be Bad Religion’s first studio album with Mike Dimkich (replacing Greg Hetson) on guitar and Jamie Miller (replacing Brooks Wackerman) on drums.
