This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles welcome Frank Turner by way of the interwebs to discuss his new record, Positive Songs for Negative People. The Bobs can tell full well that Frank is highly disturbed by their uncouth, American manners and hacky, tabloid idiocy - but that doesn’t stop them from getting to the bottom of things, or learning about Lester Bangs. From being hungover on the set of his new Josephine video, to performing a “nearly” spot-on American accent while proclaiming his love and admiration of the deep south, Turner stays courteous to the Bobs, even while Noxious fields him questions, which were obviously researched via wikipedia. Say hello to the punk rock Bruce Springsteen! (At least we didn’t make that the headline). Unlike Mr. Pickles, who was on TLC’s America’s Worst Tattoos - Mr. Turner does not believe in cover-ups or regret, that’s why Frank has deemed his left leg, his “stupid tattoo leg”, sporting an image of Dale Earnhardt, a kangaroo with a unicorn horn, and a brandname of canadian prescription painkillers. Episode 30’s recurring themes: Bob’s admitted rampant file sharing abuses, his exploitation of hate mail and “not so secret” admirers, plus a new genre is born: polka-funk.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Bob doesn’t know the meaning of provocative. Elliott Fullam of Little Punk People talks about his experience interviewing Babes in Toyland at their NYC Irving Plaza show. Bob has a “not so secret” admirer who appreciates Bob’s beard. Bob says the Meat Puppets aren’t “punk rock”. 

Bob’s extra-curricular activities was band but he had to quit because he had poor grades, while Bobby was hellion, a “crazy, punk rock kid” who dropped outta high school but still managed to graduate from UF. Frank Turner teaches Bob and Bobby about Lester Bangs, considered to be  “America’s Greatest Rock Critic” - the Hunter S. Thompson of music journalism. Bob says Bobby must enjoy wearing women’s clothes because Bobby refuses to comment on Fat Mike’s fondness of wearing ladies’ attire. 

“There’s always a little word play when there’s a little ass play”, says Bob as he intros “Frank Turner ‘doing’ Josephine”. Bob’s doing a split 7” with Dwarves’ guitarist HeWhoCannotBeNamed. Bobby wants the 7” vinyl from Bob for Christmas. Bob says espresso is a diuretic - that’s why e stays clear of that nasty stuff when carousing Walmart shopping aisles.

New DS t-shirts may be available soon! Bob says whenever he wears his DS t-shirt, people pledge their undying (pun intended) allegiance to Dying Scene. When a band calls it quits and they still have 7-8 months of touring, Bob won’t shed a tear. The name “American Television” makes Bob think of the “golden years” of TV. Bob has never experienced television outside of the USA. It’s really the lowest common denominator.

Frank Turner has better manners than Bob and Bobby, despite being an Englishman. If you’re a good songwriter, you might not wanna listen to other’s input, as in - “dude, that stuff sounds like Iron Maiden, it’s not 1984” - actual commentary from a PigPen session. While discussing the new Domesplitter hot sauce - Bobby declares, “Hot Sauce Everything!” Bob looks up the moruga scorpion scoville unit, then explains the hybrid strain system to Bobby, who has read High Times magazine and lives in a “medical state”.

Sep 14, 2015

This week on Dying Scene RadioBobby Pickles chats with Mathias Färm and Erik Ohlsson of the legendary Swedish skate-punk band Millencolin prior to their stop at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, on the North American leg of their 2015 True Brew tour. Pickles probes the two Scandinavian guitarists about that time their mutual friend, Frankie Dan acclaimed tattoo artist who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 35, had the entire band tattoo their signatures onto his leg. Erik says they have the entire encounter on video somewhere and they will post it soon, now that they have heard the news of Frankie’s untimely demise. Bobby also asks the two about Millencolin’s iconic sound, their preference for Viking women, and then relays several offensively idiotic questions that were penned by Bob NoxiousVideo of Bobby Pickles’ full-interview with Millencolin can be found on the DSR YouTube page. Vignettes by: Dan of Still Alive, Mark of Madaline, and Shaun Colón and Joel Herrera of A Fat Wreck and Punk Rock Film FestEpisode 29’s recurring theme: Crapping out on punk rock knowledge.

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER

Let’s play a game of punk rock craps. “Are you ready to roll the dice, Mr. Pickles!” Bob exclaims, revealing his inclusion in a $1700 football pool and having his mind on his money and his money on his mind. But the Bobs don’t know sports terminology, or gambling terminology for that matter. But they do know about punk rock! Or so they think.

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates - and Bob Noxious recommends Richard CheeseBouncing Souls also do a string of hometown shows during the holidays, just like the Bosstones. The Bobs were on hiatus when Queers bassist Dangerous Dave went on drunken rampage aimed at destroying the band’s drum kit

Bob has zero idea who BoySetsFire is but wants to test Bobby’s punk rock knowledge. Noxious then makes fun of how Bobby answers his fact-checking questions, but Bobby knows it’s only out of insecurity because Bob is most probably a sociopath, and some thing’s are better left unsaid. 

Bobby keeps on saying “next on the docket” throughout the show, which may become a staple term, just like “grubby little hands”. Bob Brandt wants Pickles to hunt Blake Schwarzenbach down on a Brooklyn sidewalk. Bob says Bobby should catch the Jawbreaker frontman as he’s exiting a bodega, kitty litter in-hand. 

Bob says, “Never let another man hold your bag!” when Bobby shares that he left his bag of radio equipment with Jonny X while he moshed in the circle pit at the Millencolin concert. Bob still gets in the pit at 46. Bob says Tom Araya looks downright haggerty in the brand new Slayer video. The Bobs crap out when they roll a 7 with everything on the table!

Sep 8, 2015

This week on Dying Scene RadioBob Noxious and Bobby Pickles connect with Joey Cape live from his van. The three discuss Joey’s new solo record, Stitch Puppy,  the story behind the song, “Tracks”, and what it was like to record his latest acoustic album using a similar formula to that of his label, One Week Records.  Bobby uses his “Wop Dar” to uncover the Italian roots of the Lagwagon frontman, insinuates that, like most musicians, Joey is inherently lazy, and then asks Mr. Cape a very pretentious question, which Joey has not the authority to answer adequately, given that the punk rock ethos transcends ideas and is really a part of one’s DNA. But, Joey agrees with Bob’s ethos, being a 46 year old man who lives his life like a 17 year old boy.  

SYNOPSIS OF BANTER: Jason 3D of The Jasons designed a FAT ENZO t-shirt depicting The Bobs getting killed by The Jasons. Lou Koller, frontman of NYHC greats, Sick Of It All, speaks with ten year old Elliott of Little Punk People, and Bobby wants to make him a DSR war correspondent because he’s interviewed many of the same people as Bob and he’s a much more talented interviewer. The Bobs discuss their impending full-coverage of FEST 14 in Gainesville and Pre-FEST in Tampa. Bobby doesn’t know who Mikey Erg or Ronnie James Dio is. The Svetlanas are from “Mother Russia” just as PigPen are comprised of more bacon than Bob puts down during breakfast. Why does EVERYBODY think the iconic Motörhead frontman, Lemmy Kilmister, is going to die? Bob says if Lemmy isn’t really afraid to die, he’d have played a fourth song in Austin. Bob thinks he might need to go back to the dark liquors. Bob says, “Lemmy will live forever and what kind of world are we going to leave for Lemmy?”

AND VIGNETTES BY: Elliott Fullam of Little Punk PeopleJ. Prozac of Doubtfire, Todd Dulawan of Distorted Signals, Dylan Flynn of Pass The Bass, and Mike Hansen of Pentimento.

Episode 28’s recurring theme: bad/spot-on accents, artists who’ve recorded records in one-week’s time, and Bobby’s three keys to success - Persistence, Arrogance, and Stupidity, with major emphasis on the latter.
