Charlie Paulson. Punk Rock Legend. Guitar player. Goldfinger founding member. Dog and Lakers Basketball lover. Nicer than he appears. Sometimes a Stunt Guy in the movies. ;)

Charlie has a lot on his mind. We barely scratched the surface as we sat together on an English tour bus and this is what we talked about:

Force-fed ideology

Social media and politics

Political science

Cultural perspective and credibility

Hot sauce and dingleberries

Working in Hollywood

Cowardly coyotes

Flying with pet

If Charlie were Prez

Parental licensing

Coming back to Goldfinger

The Mike Herrera Podcast #282 Matt Collyer - Lead Vocals & Guitar for the Planet Smashers. 

 

The Planet Smashers are a Canadian ska punk band from Montreal. Since their formation in 1994, they have been a staple of the Montreal music scene. During the third wave of ska, they performed nationally and later internationally, with tours in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Founding member Matt Collyer helped establish Stomp Records in 1994, which featured many ska and ska punk bands

We had a great conversation about keeping the music fresh after 25 years as a band, their new album, "Too Much Information", his label Stomp Records and that one time (not at band camp) that Matt broke his neck and lived to write a song about it!

Enjoy.

#269 Bernie Leos - Tumbledown Touring Mexico

Lead singer of Mexican Ska Punk band Los Kung Fu Monkeys, music business man and good friend of mine  joins the podcast to talk about our days on tour together in Mexico. Bernie used to book the tours and was our tour manager on a one very ill fated tour. But the memories are pure gold and I still love Mexico. I can't wait to go back. 

Of note. Bernie translated and actually rewrote the lyrics for my song "Great Big World" into Spanish. Instead of some of the great American Cities that Tumbledown played in, we did a Mexican version of all the great cities of Mexico. Hope you enjoy it if you listen. It's gotta be kind of amusing to hear me sing en Español. ;)

You can hear the track anywhere you stream music. Search Tumbledown Great Big World Spanish. 

Don't miss this and in case you missed the last podcast with #268 Harley Trotland (Drummer) #267 with Jack Parker, go listen to those too.They go right along with this.

Keith Underwood @underwoodtattoo 

Keith was brought up in the tattoo world as a traditional tattoo artist. With an apprenticeship under Mike “Rollo Banks” Malone (who has worked with the great traditional tattoo artists “Sailor Jerry” Collins and Ed Hardy), Keith’s career path led him to the knowledge of traditional ways of tattooing and his way of doing business.

In recent years Keith has been building a boxing empire with his company Underwood Promotions that puts on boxing events in the city of Austin, TX including Tattooed gloves, a charity event that has professional tattooers get in the ring with each other. 

Keith sounds like a busy man, but he has proved that he can handle running multiple businesses and raise a family at the same time. With a solid shop to call his own in Texas, Keith is looking forward to making it as successful as his other businesses and spending more time with his wife and their two boys, Rooster Malone and Johnny Cash.

This weeks guest is Kurt Larson and Daniel Franz of Silver City Brewery. With the much anticipated release of Secret Weapon Kurt, Daniel, and Mike talk about all the steps that went into making such a great beer. From tastings, to artwork, and all the beer industry lingo, MxPx and Silver City Brewery have not just designed a great beer but a great start to the summer. Parties, bars, rock shows, podcasts, and even grocery stores are going to be all about Secret Weapon.

More on Silver City Brewery from SILVER CITY
For most in the Puget Sound, when you look west at the Olympic Mountains you're looking right at the "Silver City". The convergence point right before you jump off into the wilderness of the Olympic National Forest on your way to the Pacific Ocean, resting between the edge of the Puget Sound and the base of the Olympic Mountains, rests Silver City. This Urban-Suburban experience is a sweet brewer's mash of Seattle city life and breathtaking outdoor adventure, all within ones reach. Beer, well made, brings the people of the "Silver City" together in celebration of having it all.
Silver City was started in 1996 by Co-owners Steve & Scott Houmes, and it remains a locally owned and operated business. Silver City Brewery's handcrafted beers are available on draft, in 22oz bottles, 12oz bottle & 12oz can 6-packs across Washington State in bars, restaurants, and grocery stores.
Silver City Brewery's production facility & brewery taproom is located at 206 Katy Penman Ave. in Bremerton, WA. Silver City Restaurant is located in Silverdale at 2799 NW Myhre Rd.

BREMERTON-BREWED PUNK RAWK
Celebrating 25 years of loud, fast, left-coast punk rawk, MXPX and Silver City Brewery, both from Bremerton, Washington, have joined forces to commemorate the band's anniversary milestone with an exclusive, signature beer. Named after the band's 2007 hit, "Secret Weapon", the brew is a delicious amber lager brewed in the "left-coast common" style. Super easy-going with a full-flavored malt backbone and a clean hop kick on the finish, the recipe is a true collaborative effort between the Silver City brew team and band members Mike, Tom, and Yuri, who were heavily involved in its development, adding their own personal tastes and flavor preferences.

This weeks guest is Paul Marc Rousseau of Silverstein. Life on tour can be demanding to say the least, but Mike and Paul talk all about how to make it a life style to have in which to have fun. So hold tight as the show moves from Warped Tour to childhood while making a quick stop up north that will have you saying Oh Canada, and then learn a little about light beer from two music engineers.


A little more from Silverstein
It takes numbers to craft a movement out of sound. It takes numbers, and it takes throat, calloused fingers, worn out joints, and a sea of voices singing along. It takes numbers, and it takes work. It takes playing basements and community centers as much as it takes stages, and festivals. It takes years of dedication, sincerity, and community. And yet, only a few artists are so honored as to become synonymous with their era. Since 2000, Silverstein has kept its roots firmly planted in the terrain of post- hardcore. Sixteen years later, the genre is impossible to talk about without mentioning this seminal group.
