This week on Dying Scene RadioBob 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.

Jul 10, 2015

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles are joined in-studio by guest hosts, Fletcher Dragge (of Pennywise fame) and Justin Thirsk, two-thirds of the Hermosa Beach trio known as Chaos Delivery Machine! They’re trying to wake people up to the insane realities of the world through their freshly released cacophony record entitled - BURN MOTHERF#CKER, BURN - produced by Fletcher himself via Hardline Entertainment. An enemy will stab you in the back, but a true friend will stab you in the front, repeatedly - which Fletcher and Justin (a couple longtime pals who have enough stories and insights to fill a podcast program of their own) make abundantly clear by the diatribe they exchange. The Bobs also speak with Olga and Diste of the female-fronted “Russian” hardcore punk band, SVETLANAS, whose latest record, Naked Horse Rider, was produced by Dwarves frontman Blag Dahlia. Catch them out on the Warped Tour this summer! Episode 23’s recurring theme: unconventional Pringles can applications. 

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bobby publicly criticizes Dying Scene for not copying him on the long email chain swapped by the DS editors responsible for generating a list of The 25 Best Punk albums of 2015 (so far)

In Bobby’s opinion, they did not do their due diligence by omitting the latest Screeching Weasel opus, Baby Fat Act 1. Bobby has vowed to help write the updated list in six months, including the aforementioned record plus CDM’s BURN MOTHERF#CKER, BURN - which is a lengthy concept opus in itself. Fletcher is astonished to learn that when Ben Weasel sat in his chair last month, he lambasted damn near everyone in punk rock, but had nothing bad to say about Pennywise.

While discussing the new Chaos Delivery Machine record, Fletcher discusses his roles as self appointed bassist and producer of the band, gloating that producing had given him a “license to f#ck with everyone”, and ultimately, got exactly what he wanted. 

Kanye West found himself in the music news this week by declaring himself the greatest rockstar in the world. We here at Dying Scene Radio do not necessarily consider this news, but we do stand by Fletcher’s declaration that he, along with the Kardashians, should “take a long walk off a short pier”.

Fletcher and Justin relive their “sh!t-pipe” story and Fletcher basically calls Bobby dumb for not realizing that most fertilizer is essentially fecal matter. Get ready to laugh in stitches! Without going into too many details, you might learn where the term “smoking the good sh!t” originated. 

It is no secret that Fletcher loves a nice White Russian. What you may not know, however, is that his favorite vehicle of choice is to deliver that tasty beverage is a Pringles can. Justin adds that the salt from the chips give the drink that extra special secret ingredient, which puts it over the top. When asked if the Pennywise’s rider has any weird accommodation requests ala Van Halen’s brown M&M’s, Fletcher admits that he’s fine with a deli tray and a wet bar, and maybe four or five pizzas after the show. When asked about the powerfood that sparks their creative process, Fletcher proclaims that any bag of chips and beef jerky usually does the trick.

From one White Russian to another, the Bobs spotlight the female-fronted hardcore punk act, SVETLANAS, who are Russian by way of Italy. The band’s open criticism of Vladimir Putin has rendered lead singer, Olga, unwelcome in her home country, and entire band, enemies of the state. Possessing the band's latest record, Naked Horse Rider, is considered a crime in Russia. The band explains the risk involved with taking part in the secret Soviet underground punk scene, which is often violent. 

Bob displays his knowledge of, and undying affection for, the British children’s television program, Teletubbies. Now, if he can only figure out the difference between the purple and yellow one.

Chaos Delivery Machine will lead you along the path of righteousness! Or, so says Fletcher, when asked about healthy eating habits. “They” try to pass off the food pyramid as edible and safe, which disturbs Fletcher, who prefers to think of pigs and chickens doing their thing on the farm instead of being kept in a cage.

Justin and Fletcher debate the difference between 2’ x 3’ and 24” x 36”. Is there really a difference? Fletcher thinks so. 

Fletcher confesses that he has fans in prison who send him mail...and text messages. Because, if you can get heroin and bitches in prison, a cell phone’s not so far fetched. Will Pennywise ever play San Quentin as did Johnny Cash so many moons ago? Only “time” will tell. 

Friendship. Brotherhood. Comaraderie. If you can't take a joke, kindly excuse yourself from this planet. Best friends can always outwit each other successfully.

Jul 3, 2015

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles say “good morning” to Pat Decline, guitarist/lead singer of the Aussie punk act, The Decline, who’s on the line from the downunder, sporting a winter beanie cap and eating a Vegemite sandwich. Pat has difficulty skirting around certain topics, as his quick witted Kiwi sarcasm becomes no match for Bobby’s powerful pseudo-intellectual questioning. The two Bobs also speak with two Jasons, when the driveling duo welcomes guitarist/lead singer Jason V and bassist Jason 3D, half of the Crystal Lake, NJ horror-pop-punk band The Jasons. They’re four mongoloid brothers who enjoy pissing people off with their immature antics and playing pure Red-Blooded American Punk Rock. They may not sound exactly how you might think they would...but we'll let you be the judge of that. Episode 22’s recurring theme: backslashes and throat slashes. 

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

The Bobs plan an October camping trip in Gainesville because all of the hotels are sold out for FEST. Bobby suggests inviting The Jasons, and together, the two Bobs decide that this idea would be incredibly awesome. Then, always one to toot his own horn, Bobby informs all of the listeners, plus anyone else who will listen, that his recently published Dying Scene article entitled 10 Most Distasteful Punk Rock Band Names was #1 on the Google Analytics this week. Psychologically unable to give anyone encouragement, Bob calls Bobby out for his glaring omissions from the list, while pondering the whereabouts of the pizza delivery guy. 

After playing through the first batch of songs, Bob reveals his socio-geopolitical ignorance while describing his vision of what an Israeli woman looks like in his head. Bobby is astounded by Bob's lack of knowledge, then briefly educates Bob about desert fast-food chains and the Israeli army. The consummate line stepper, Bob further divulges his clueless nature by mentioning "the Mexicans who used to work on his job site", when Bobby asks Bob where he learned all his Spanish. No wonder why everybody hates Bob.

Bob lambastes Bobby for covering a news story about an upcoming heavy metal festival. Audibly disgusted, Bob tells Bobby that there’s only room for punk on Dying Scene Radio. As the onion unpeels, Bob discloses that he has a stalker, who happens to be a former metal singer. Bobby shrugs it off, declaring that Bob seems more likely to be a stalker than have one.

Stereotyping obviously becomes the next topic of conversation as the Bobs connect halfway around the world with Pat from the Perth-based punk band, The Decline. Bob asks Pat if he is sick of hearing references to the iconic 80's Australian pop band, Men At Work, all while Pat eats his Vegemite on toast. While not necessarily offended by it, Pat does voice his displeasure with the classic Simpsons episode that disparages the outback. Moving past the pigeonholing, Pat explains the Australian music scene, Bob describes a Cuban sandwich, then Bobby pressures Pat for an answer to what is probably the band's most frequently asked question. Check out the full interview to find out the answer to that question, as well as the plethora of other asinine questions that the Bobs stream of consciousness.

Bobby continues on with his unhealthy obsession with the "slash" as it is used in the English language. Knowing this while picking songs for the episode, Bob makes clear his correct use of syntax, informing Bobby that he will not be needing to edit him with such a heavy hand. After further probing, Bobby declares that Bob was indeed grammatically correct in his use of the backslash, to which Bob defiantly agrees. 

Speaking of “slash”, next up are a couple of slashers - Jason V and Jason 3D, who join the show directly from their cabin on Camp Crystal Lake. Profanity and hilarity ensue as two Bobs blather with two Jasons, who could easily feel right at home on any stage doing stand-up comedy, but instead choose to make beautiful pop-punk music - all while donning individually decorated hockey masks ala the Friday the 13th movie franchise. The band also has a web series that they produce on a regular basis. Bobby questions the two Jasons on their "performance art" after they single handedly ruined a Doyle show by forgetting the set-list and playing out of tune guitars. Other topics visited: the challenges of playing pop/punk music in a mask, and running a “family business”. 

Usually not the one to offend, Bobby disparages the Jasons’ mother. Initially shocked by the callous remark, V and 3D offer an Internet beat down, and then go on to tell about crossing the Canadian border in their fart-bus while importing their mother’s severed head. The Jasons then promise that the band will be breaking up at the conclusion of the podcast, but also claim to disband and reunite on an almost daily basis. Sounds like brotherly love to us! Please just don't call them "horror punk" or you’re dead! Make sure to check out the rest of the interview in its entirety...these guys are a fearsome.
