The latest guest on The Wasting Time Podcast is Chris Messer, singer of Chicago pop punk band Showoff and owner of Dodgeball Records. He goes into detail about Showoff’s early days and how they became the first band to record with mega producer John Feldmann. He tells the story of their sophomore effort recorded with Mark Trombino and the crazy reasons it never saw the light of day. Chris also candidly tells about the disgraceful behaviour of a certain band (Everclear) that were huge in the 90s. He talks about his years in other bands including The Get Go, and why he wasn’t keen on joining Fall Out Boy when he had the chance.
