This episode I’m joined by Corbett Redford, director & writer of the Green Day funded documentary film Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk. We talk about 924 Gilman, being a first time director and about being a punk in the East bay area.
There’s some music too, all related to the film. Make sure to listen to the end for a song by supergroup The Armstrongs that you can buy on iTunes with proceeds going to 924 Gilman.
We’re in the double digits and we’re celebrating by playing music from one of my personal playlists this week. We’ve got music from Motion City Soundtrack, Green Day and Blink 182.
My interview guest this episode has production credits which include work with Nine Inch Nails, Blink-182, +44, The Cure, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers amongst many others… This episode I talk to Christopher Holmes co-producer of Blink 182’s Neighborhoods & Dogs Eating Dogs about his journey getting into the music industry, being an engineer vs being a producer, working with Blink 182 and his upcoming soundtrack work.
This episode we’re going to bring some Southern California to your ears as I interview singer & bassist of the band Kut-U-Up on his way to grab some waves. Fun fact: This is the first interview I have ever done with someone in a wetsuit. We talk about the Pop Disaster Tour, quickly approaching the 15th anniversary of its last show (June 17, 2002) and the exploits of a band nobody knew accompanying two of the biggest pop punk bands of the time on tour. All that AND music from Chin Up, Kid & Sharp/Shock!
