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.

This weeks guest is Tobin Bawinkel of Flatfoot 56. From The Windy City to the streets of Bremerton Mike and Tobin share a lifetime of stories and experiences surviving in the world of music. From debt to family pain, music can cause crushing blows to your home life so it takes a special group of people to make it work. This is that story…..      

More on Flatfoot 56
Playing a positive-natured brand of hardcore-tinged Celtic punk, Flatfoot 56 has been unleashing itself upon America and the rest of the world for over 16 years. Forming in 2000, the Chicago natives achieved nationwide attention with their first two label-backed records, 2006’s Knuckles Up and 2007’s Jungle of the Midwest Sea. These releases built on a heavy dose of previously established regional notoriety, helping the band gain steam early on.
While each record received its fair share of acclaim, the quintet exploded onto a new level with 2010’s Black Thorn. Landing the band on a total of 9 Billboard Charts, Flatfoot 56 proved it could consistently reach an expanding audience while treading in a genre not often associated with widespread success. This success was advanced even further with song placements in the hit TV series "Sons of Anarchy" and the video game "Watchdogs".  After the success of “Blackthorn", Flatfoot 56 hit the studio yet again in 2012 to record "Toil". This album would further solidify the band as a consistent force to be reckoned with. 
   Flatfoot 56’s new album, ”Odd Boat”, was produced by Matt Allison at Atlas studios in Chicago. “We decided that since the last experience at Atlas Studios was so beneficial, we wanted to repeat it,” Bawinkel said. “We have been friends with Matt for a few years now and we love the work that he and his studio engineers do.”
Flatfoot 56 has decided to partner with Sailor’s Grave Records to help deliver the next chapter of their legacy to the world.

How to discover the hidden benefits of your product

Based on two principles:

1. Everyone wants to make progress within their current situation

2. People "hire" products + services + experiences to make their life better

So the question you need to ask is: "How does my art, my music, my thing, make people more awesome? How does it help them make progress in their lives?

Now why do kids stop listening to bands?

"The music is no longer helping them make progress in their life."

What's the key to longevity in music?

You've gotta stay ahead of the fan: keep giving them progress. And you're seeing that now with MxPx. Now people are back into the music because of the nostalgia factor.

But people "hire" MxPx for other reasons:

Why do people like this video? : www.facebook.com/MxPxPx/videos/10153957974036035/

what "jobs" are people hiring MxPx for?

This weeks episode is all MxPx. The boys hit the road for a Descendents show so naturally in the car Mike pulls out the mic and the stories start coming out. So put on those headphones, sit back, and listen to Mike, Tom, and Yuri cover Trump, music, snacks, drinks and all the things that make life fun. These photos were from a trip to Silver City Brewery with the guys. We got a tour of the whole place and more than enough to drink!

MHH168 - Documentary Film Maker Shaun Colon breaks down as best he can how much work was put into the brand new punkumentary all about Fat Wreck Chords and the unlikely legacy of ethics, chosen family and punk music.

A Fat Wreck covers a ton of ground regarding the history and legacy bands on Fat and we get into that as well as the day to day tactics and habits it took to get this film made. The Fat Wreck Chords community wanted this documentary and they showed it by funding 2 separate rounds of online crowdfunding.

There's some further context in this conversation about the interviews with Fat Mike, some of Shaun's experiences getting interviews that could certainly enhance your enjoyment of the film. So I feel pretty good about this in general. You know me, I love hearing about the tactics and workflows of artists and makers. Shaun is no exception. He used not only his skills as a film maker but also used sheer patience and endurance to get some of the shots for this. We get well into the actual film itself as well as how it was made. Another good one. Thanks for listening.

MHH 168 How to Make a Fat Wreck with Shaun Colon (Director)


Country: USA, Running Time: 85min
A FAT WRECK tells the story of founders Fat Mike (of the legendary punk band NOFX) and his ex-wife Erin Kelly-Burkett, spanning the birth, growth, struggles, and survival of the Fat Wreck Chords label. Half inspirational story of chosen family and community, half debauchery and occasionally involuntary drug use, the film blazes exciting new ground in the cinematic genre of puppet-driven punk rock music documentary filmmaking. Arguably the best film in the history of American cinema featuring a dominatrix spanking a puppet.
Where might I learn more about A FAT WRECK you ask?

On this week’s episode Mike and Shaun dive into the creation of A FAT WRECK while taking a walk through Punk Rocks history such as NOFX, Propagandhi, Punk Rock Bowling and of course Fat Mike

My guest is doing good things and hustling to make it in a tough business. Show business.

We go deep into some heavy tactics for script writing and making movies at any level. This is perfect for anyone out there looking to take their creativity to the next level. I'm always fascinated with the granular view of how high functioning people actually DO what they do.

Chris Jay is a musician, songwriter, screenwriter, producer, actor, journalist and podcaster best known as the frontman and founder of the rock band, Army of Freshmen and for co-writing and acting in the comedy film, The Bet.

Upon graduation, he moved, by himself, to Ventura, California where he formed the band, Army of Freshmen in 1997. Army of Freshmen are still active and have played over 1,500 shows in 43 states and 11 countries and released 5 full-length albums. Jay himself has been involved in the writing, producing and recording of over 1,500 songs, with several of those appearing in films and on television.

Chris Jay and fellow Army of Freshmen member, Aaron Goldberg wrote the screenplay for the full-length comedy film, The Bet which was released on July 26, 2016. Jay and Goldberg co-produced they film under their production company, Goldy Jay Productions.

Their second film, Wedding or Not is currently in pre-production and scheduled to begin filming in the summer of 2017. - Jay's Wikipedia

Garret Rapp of The Color Morale joins the podcast this week. We talk about the Cornerstone Festival, Warped Tour, Charities and thoughts on depression and happiness. Real talk.

  Later in the podcast I tell a very personal story about my balls. So hide your children cause it gets graphic.

MHH166 - Garret gets on the phone as they get to a rare day off on the Van's Warped Tour. We talk about the new album,Desolate Divine that's out today and we go way into why some festivals thrive (Van's Warped Tour) and why others have gone the way of the buffalo (Cornerstone Festival).

Other Topics:

Band Happy,  tactics for everyday success and happiness. Mentoring, connecting, Hope for the day, Heart support, Depression, Happiness,

 The Color Morale 

Garret Rapp [lead vocals, keys]
Aaron Saunders [rhythm guitar, vocals]
Devin King [lead guitar]
Mike Honson [bass]
Steve Carey [drums]

For the Rockford, IL quintet, treading new territory has uncovered their most poetic, potent, and powerful body of work to date in their fifth studio album,Desolate Divine, which captures the band’s palpable aggression through expansive production, yielding to a bigger sonic backdrop, while preserving the sense of emotional vulnerability they’re known for. Following the success of early albums, We All Have Demons [2009], My Devil in Your Eyes [2011], and Know Hope [2013], the group received a 2014Alternative Press Music Awards nomination in the category of “Best Breakthrough Band.” Shortly after, Hold On Pain Ends debuted at #28 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release—the group’s highest chart position yet. The recording process for Desolate Divine marks a first for the musicians as they enlisted multiple producers and songwriters to perfect the dynamic sound they wanted to achieve—Dan Korneff [Pierce The Veil, The Devil Wears Prada], Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, Saosin], Scott Stevens [Shinedown, Halestorm, Nothing More], Arnold Lanni [Simple Plan], and Matt Wentworth. Whether you’re a first-time listener or a long-time diehard, you’ve likely never heard The Color Morale like this before, as the band remains unflinchingly real and unashamedly ambitious in Desolate Divine, slated for an August 2016 release.

The nightmare and what kitchen life is really like with MASTER CHEF and ENTREPRENEUR
JOHN NESBY. He and his wife own and operate the Green Light Diner in Poulsbo, WA.

 Green Light Diner 

John drops knowledge about food, business, mushroom hunting, clean food, and he even shares a nice simple Avacodo recipe. Mise en place.

Mise en place was very interesting to me because it's also what I think of as a musician. I have tools and I do enjoy them in their own place.

(French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place." It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift. -wikipedia

Green Light Diner

For next time... This is a text I just got from John about the podcast. I will have him back on this summer so send in your cooking questions and I'll ask him. Here's the text:

"I'm bummed, we never even got to talk outdoor grill cookery.  Hour flew by. I've been obsessed with my grill lately.  I cook everything on that thing and have begun incorporating thrift shop antique lodgeware cast iron pans onto the grill for some of the most amazing and simple "clean" dishes ever.  I'm even doing grilled garden vegetable scrambles and cooking the whole thing outdoors at home.  It's so good. Grilled zucchini, crooked neck squash, charred potatoes with green onions, bacon and cast iron scrambled eggs, topped with sea salt and Chulula Sauce. That's what Chef eats at home these days."

Shane Told, lead singer of Silverstein joins Mike this week. 

Shane Told has a story to tell and he does it well, first with his band Silverstein, but second his solo material River Oaks, or now his recent endeavor into the fray of podcasting with a great show called Lead Singer Syndrome where he talks to… yup, lead singers about the craft, the life, the layers of the people you listen to sing their hearts out. It's a great concept and I'm gonna be on the program soon enough. Stay tuned for that as well. Here's a little bio from his page but the sure way to enlightenment is to listen to this episode.

"What is it like to be one of the most important members of a band? Shane Told, frontman of the critically-acclaimed rock band Silverstein, brings you candid interviews with all of your favorite singers on this podcast. Is it really all sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll? Find out for yourself on Lead Singer Syndrome." - http://www.jabberjawmedia.com/lead-singer-syndrome

 

In this episode we know we are being watched and listened to but you'll have to listen to really grasp the creepiness of what we are talking about.

This is also the first episode of the Mike Herrera Hour in collaboration with Jabber Jaw. It's a way to collaborate more on the podcasting end of things. I like what Shane is doing and I'm liking the Break it Down Podcast with Matt Carter. In terms of content, those two shows go with my show pretty well. So we're all in good company. Another easy way to get to the show and other great shows. Click the link below to see my page on Jabber Jaw.

Drummer Travis Barker joins Mike this week! 

Blink-182 rehearsals, work ethic and passion for music, Travis’ love for hip-hop and his career into that after Blink- 182 and The Transplants broke up. The benefit gig with Goldfinger, Mike and Travis. He also talks about recording with Matt Skiba after Tom Delonge’s exit.  Business, Crossroads Restaurant in LA, family life with his kids, MTV reality show, how surviving a plane crash changed his life perspective, drug abuse, relationships and tons more! 

MHH153- Travis was on his way home from Blink 182 rehearsals when I got a chance to catch up with him on the phone. We talked about a ton of topics. We got into his day to day routines to bigger sweeping life changes and that includes some behind the scenes talk on making the new Blink 182 album with record producer and Goldfinger front man, John Feldmann.

They just released the first single off the album called, Bored to Death. It sounds really good and I love how open the verses are. Just go to Blink182.com to check it out.

If the photos below confuse you and you are wondering what this band is with Travis, Feldy, Frank (Feeble) and yours truly is. It was called Travis Barker and the Res-Erections (hehe). A one off cover band throwing down with some 80's and 90's music. A loose set of fun cover songs punked up and a few Goldfinger jams too. We got together for a benefit show to raise funds for the school that Travis' kids attend. It was a really fun night and rad times were had by all. The audience saw something pretty insane that night! And yes, sometimes you just get a phone call from a friend asking for a favor and you find yourself on a non-stop flight to Los Angeles to lay down some low end. I love this life and not really knowing what's gonna happen all the time is part of what makes it so exciting. Scary too but if you aren't a little afraid of the possibilities then maybe you aren't reaching outside your comfort zone enough.

Mike and Travis will talk why cruise ships are better than airplanes, killer remixes, and the new Blink-182 record. Forget Meet the Barkers you’re about to see a whole new side of Travis as he reveals the pleasures and the pain that shaped him into a music icon. Did we mention tune-in? Tune-in and tell your friends!

Travis Landon Barker (born November 14, 1975) is an American musician and producer, and the drummer for the American rock bandBlink-182. Barker has also performed as a frequent collaborator with hip-hop artists, and with the alternative rock band +44, the rap rock group the Transplants, and the alternative rock band Box Car Racer. He was a frequent collaborator with the late DJ AM, and together they formed TRV$DJAM.
After the split of his first band, Feeble, Barker began playing for the Aquabats in 1996 as the Baron Von Tito. He recorded one album with them, The Fury of The Aquabats!, in 1997. His career took off when he joined up with Blink-182 in 1998. Barker has since established himself as a versatile drummer, producing and making guest appearances in music projects of numerous music genres including hip hop, alternative rock, pop and country. He has gained significant acceptance within the hip-hop community in particular and often collaborates with artists to compose rock-tinged remixes to their songs. Barker collaborated with artists (including Game, Yelawolf, Tom Morello, Corey Taylor, Slaughterhouse, Raekwon, Busta Rhymes, RZA, Slash, and other musicians) for his solo debut album,Give the Drummer Some, which was released on March 15, 2011.
In 2011, he worked with Steve Aoki and Kid Cudi in Aoki's hit single Cudi the Kid, as part of his album Wonderland, with Barker as lead drummer.
Aside from drumming, he founded the clothing company Famous Stars and Straps in 1999 and LaSalle Records in 2004. Companies such as DC Shoes and Zildjian cymbals have co-designed products in his name. Rolling Stone referred to him as "punk's first superstar drummer." - Source: Wikipedia

Mike talks with Ben Weasel this week! They talk about touring, his public persona, modern day music industry/society, songwriting, The Catholic Church, Outcasts, and a lot more! 

I grew up in the days where you got a cassette with an album on it. Dubbed from a dub. I didn't know what bands looked like or how many Twitter followers they had. My only evidence or context of the band was based off listening intensely to the music. My imagination ran wild with larger than life images of what the band was. But they were larger than life to me. For example. I thought the band ALL was this huge rock band just from listening to Allroy's Revenge on a dubbed cassette over and over. Even when I saw them play on a school night in 91' at the OK Hotel I still hadno idea what the band looked like. This was no different for how I discovered Screeching Weasel. My brain hurts to think back that far but I almost always think of my days ditch digging and doing manual labor and maintanance for rental apartments and duplexes. It was my buddy Rich and myself in a his truch blasting Boogada Boogada Boogada from one job to the next. Punk rock was the soundtrack to my life. Work, play, rain or shine. Screeching Weasel was there for me. Thanks for doing the podcast Ben. Take a listen and learn a few things about Ben Weasel.

Mike talks with Louis Defabrizio (Gasonline Heart) about his recent experience voting for Bernie Sanders in New York City and then Michelle Ray joins to give a more conservative point of view.

 

If you care about how policies and legislation effects you, this episode is for you! Actually, scratch that. This episode is for everybody. We Americans live in a deeply divided country where it seems like there's no real path to solving our biggest problems. I don't know all the talking points and all the right things to say but I do get passionate about some issues in this episode of the Mike Herrera Hour.

I'm joined by Gasoline Heart's Louis DeFabrizio (@GasolineHeart) from the back of his Brooklyn where he found a spot to hide from his wife and twin baby boys for some eye witness accounting of the NY Democratic Primary Voting Day. This alone is worth tuning in but that's not all!!

In the second segment we get serious about socialism and capitalism with Conservative Radio Personality Michelle Ray (@GaltsGirl)

It's a great episode you won't want to miss. Please send me a review and look at the bottom link if you wanna support the show while shopping on Amazon. Them drones will be your friend. As long as they keep dropping sweet consumer products!

Mike takes Skype calls from friends and fans and talks to Jason Call from Daphne Loves Derby about how they got 5 million downloads.

 

MHH 150

How an unsigned band got 5 Million downloads while the music business was breaking and more stories from you, my friends and listeners. My main guest is Jason Call of the band Daphne Loves Derby and now Mariner. We talk about his band's space rocket to success by gaining more than 5 million downloads for just 1 song through sites like PureVolume and MySpace and how that led to a record deal, world tours. How did it happen? How did they do it? Did they hack the system or were they just the first to do it?

Special Note: This episode I'm taking your calls on skype. It was a very last minute decision to do a podcast solely based on who I could talk to via skype at that very second. Thanks to Louis DeFabrizio, Nate Allen, Thiago Messias for the chat and everyone else that I didn't get to actually talk to on the podcast. I'll do this again and it will continue to improve.

I also announce the winners of the something free from the Merch Arsenal drawing. Yes.. I do that.

Social Media Conference, Public Speaking, Marketing, Networking, DIY Entrepreneurship, and more with Wesley Hoffman and Corey Smale. Find them on Twitter: The Strangehouse, @thestrangehouse, Wesley Hoffman, @wesleyhoffman, Corey Smale, @coreysmale. 

MHH147 -  Wesley Hoffman. Corey Smale. Today’s show is brought to you by Casper.

Meet the guys behind #STRANGEHOUSEWORKSHOP and @thestrangehouse Podcast. A new kind of marketing conference. Food and brew included. They hired me to speak about my longevity and how I learned to connect with my audience above all else. And that led me down the social media path pretty early on. We started our website MXPX.com on March 19, 1996.

In this episode we talk mainly about the event and the business atmosphere in St. Louis. March 11. We also cover the actual planning and workflow that was done to prepare for the event. We get a little granular at times but ultimately we bare out some gems. I'm hoping you agree. We get inside a few deep layers here. I really hope you can get something good out of this talk. I did. I'm always learning new ways to live and think. As I travel I'm always meeting new and interesting people. St. Louis was no exception. Listen and enjoy a look inside the stories that make up our lives. And please send in your comments in the section below or wherever you see me on social media.

TOPICS- Delayed flight. City Museum. Food. Drinks. Social media. Songs. I always change my set. So I do things I don't plan. And don't do things I do plan. It's like joy/pain. Bitter/sweet. 

MORE TOPICS- Morning routines. weekly habits. Mentioned docs & TV- Viceland- Fuck that's Delicious, Bompton with Kendrick Lemar. Recent Books.

Are you an entrepreneur or Freelancer?  I'm a dichotomy. I'm both. But something like a business type can't really define you. We are always making micro adjustments in our lives and in our world view. Business is the perfect example because it never stops changing and common sense is common of reason.

A big turning point and catalyst for change in my life was inevitable. But specifically for me it was continued self-learning. Books. Then The Internet. Podcasts. YouTube. Documentaries. Live Performance. I study humans. And writing.

Questions. Is exercise important to being happy? What does it do for you? If not, why don't you need it?

2 Pac. Hit me up. Bad boy killas. I work out to shit like that. I get serious about it. But I also think a lot. Solve problems. Ideas just hit me. Hit me up. I'm always writing down lines and ideas between sets. On my phone usually. I look like a teenager glued to my phone. But I'm writing it down cause every time I don't, I forget.  I also work out to songs like, Fat Bottom Girls by Queen. Try not getting a burst of energy with that kick drum pumping and Freddy giving so much of himself. SO music can definitely move you. However, we don't talk about Queen in this episode. Get after it!

FREE MUSIC CONTEST- After the weekend I will pick 1 lucky winner from my email list. PRIZE-That person will get to choose 1 of any piece of music off of the MXPX Merch Arsenal.

Jesse Lawson, Ryan McKinnon and Brad Miranda are on the podcast this week! @theJesseLawson @RjMckinnon @BradlygMiranda.

That something new for me really worked out well! I'm in St. Louis, sitting in my hotel room after a big day at the #STRANGEHOUSEWORKSHOP event that I spoke at. I had expressed some self doubt and nervousness on the podcast about the (at the time) impending doom aka "the TALK".

In this episode I had a great talk with Musician/ Songwriter, Jesse Lawson, Photographer, Ryan McKinnon, and Engineer/MTS Producer, Bradly G Miranda aka Huggies. We talk about chicago, beer, songs, music, punk, rock, business, photography, movies, podcasts.

For anyone with hustle and big ideas. This episode is for you.

I talk about my trip to Chicago and the new MXPX Pokinatcha Left Coast Style IPA craft beer that we collabed with 350 Brewing in Tinley Park. Chicago is a respectable city. We'll be back for 350 Fest- August 27th, 2016. Tickets on-sale right here:

Meditation when he wakes up.

MHH145 with James Hunnicutt - A singer/songwriter/musician from Washington State, USA...

"I believe that the most powerful & universal languages in humanity are love & music...
I do what I do because I love it. My love for life & music empowers me & I have learned that what I do empowers others from time to time as well & this realization is invaluable in my opinion... It brings an inner wealth along with it that $ & material possessions can't even come close to comparing with... " -James Hunnicutt

Find out what it was like to watch Stanly Kubrick's A clockwork orange for the first time  while also taking shrooms for the first time. Friday night at the powerlines! 

We both grew up in the same areas and our paths have criss-crossed now and again. James in an amazing performer and songwriter as you will hear at the end of this episode. He gives us a special performance of his song, Risk the Fall live in Monkey Trench Studios. Our buddy and fellow bad ass musician, Mykey Haslip joins us in telling some fun stories and good humor.

Just have a listen and judge for yourself but I really enjoyed the hell out of this one.

Politics, Media, Social Media, and the modern musician's life with Tyson Evans of @SecondtoLast.

Taking the nation's temperature from the youth perspective with Tyson Evans and hear an exclusive acoustic performance by Tyson right from my couch in Monkey Trench Studios. His band Second to Last from Lodi, CA (yes I brought up the CCR song) has toured all over the country with some pretty well known acts that yes, he does name during the conversation. Just get in there and check it out. We covered a lot of ground and much of it was recent happenings and commentary on the US presidential race and our social and racial climate not only in this country but locally right here in Bremerton.

Bass player, Derik Envy joins Mike this week. Former- Unwritten Law, Current- True Rivals, The Briggs, Teenage Time Killers.

How to learn songs. Tattoos. Playing together on tour. Crazy America politics. What if trump wins?

I love it when something just clicks. You've been struggling with a new skill for months and it just doesn't seem to be going anywhere. But then all the sudden you go back to task or part that you previously struggled with and with no practice on the part between now and that last time you struggled with it over a month ago, you nail it with not much effort and it just clicks.

That click takes time, practice, research and the desire to be taken seriously.

Derik Envy is an American bass player and multi instrumentalist. Formerly of many bands including bass duties for San Diego's finest, Unwritten Law. That's where I first met Derik, we toured together. We get into that a little bit here. Currently playing in True RIvals, The Briggs and Teenage Time Killers. He's got a great work ethic and brings that to the stage. I love watching him up there jumping around and swinging his bass lines all over the stage. And check out his tattoos. He's a monster at this point and almost fully covered head to toe in tattoos. His head would make most mamas cry. It's bad ass. Check him out on Instagram @DerikEnvy or Twitter @DerikNV

In my conversation with Derik we talk about his learning process. Some of the skills it takes to be a professional bass player. The workflow for learning a lot of material in a short amount of time. If you play an instrument you'll wanna sit in on this conversation. We do veer off into some other topics but it's mainly a winding path from the hills of Montana to the concrete streets of Los Angeles, CA and all the crazy places between and beyond. Here's a video of True Rivals backing me up on my version of Rancid's Olympia, Wa.

The tragic events of the Boston Bombing, shooting and manhunt have been front and center in the news all week. My thoughts have often been turned toward Boston and the victims of the bombing. I decided to have Mike Shea on the podcast to get his take on that and the politics behind it. We go deep down politics road. As usual I spare no one a diatribe about my distrust of our politicians. There was a problem with Mike's Skype connection cutting out in parts, but over all it's pretty good... sorry about that.
