05 – NOAH VAN SCIVER from Blammo, The Westword’s Four Questions & Fantagraphic’s The Hypo!

Hello Friends! Today’s episode we talk with Noah Van Sciver, the artist behind Kilgore Book’s Blammo comics, The Westword’s Four Questions & Fantagraphic’s The Hypo. We start the conversation talking about how Noah got into making comics, his family and making comics for a living.

Noah turns the mic on me and the whole thing turned into a conversation about The Muppets, our families and our favorite things growing up! It was a fun, loose conversation and one of my favorite episodes to record!

Hello Friends! For today’s episode, I talk with one of my best friends, Virgil Dickerson of Suburban Home Records.  Suburban Home has been around and kicking for 16 long years, and what a ride it has been. I talk with Virgil about his humble beginnings, the near end of the label and the life we’ve lived in between.

Also on today’s episode, we debut a new track from Suburban Home’s newest band: ARLISS NANCY. This never before heard track is off their upcoming Suburban Home debut:  Simple Machines. The track is “Front Seat” and features the vocal talents of Mr. Jon Snodgrass from Drag The River fame.

RISE AGAINST – Flashback #02 – Two Early era interviews with Rise Against about The Unraveling, Revolution Per Minute, Fat Wreck Chords, 88 Finger Louie and MORE!

More from our “Flashback” series. Interviews that took place BEFORE the podcast began. The majority of these Flashback interviews were done for the Mostly Harmless magazine we ran once upon a time.

Originally posted on Bandcamp.com to give people a general idea of what was to come with The Mostly Harmless Podcast, and to maybe even raise some money for equipment and beers. Also, I just wanted some time on a Microphone and get to use talking into a microphone in my small apartment.

These early interviews with Rise Against were taken very early on in their career. The first one was done in either late August or very, very early in September of 2011 (before the September 11th tragedies.) The interview was conducted outside Tulagi’s in Boulder, Colorado on the band’s FIRST Colorado show.

On April 23rd, 2003 we sat down and did the second interview in the basement of the long defunct 32 Bleu in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The show was on the night their second CD, REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE, hit stores.

You’ll hear a very young, ignorant dumbass kid ask stupid questions, but you’ll hear of the humble beginnings of what would one day become one of the largest bands in the world.

FLASHBACK #1 – A WILHELM SCREAM & THE ERGS!

These interviews were both done in 2005. The A Wilhelm Scream interview was published in Mostly Harmless Magazine #1  and the Ergs interview was published in Mostly Harmless #2. Both of these interviews were promidently promoted on the ‘zine’s Myspace page from back in the day…
