  • Interview w/ THE VANDALS: Joe Escalante & Warren Fitzgerald Chat with Morgan Murdaface

    Morgan Murdaface got the opportunity to interview Joe Escalante and Warren Fitzgerald of The Vandals at Mohawk in Austin on Friday, June 13, 2014. The guys were all very cool, and even told us to steal some of their beers, which we gladly did. I definitely need to learn to hold back my little girlie laugh while behind the camera though. Almost ruined the interview… LOL We also got some really good live footage of Krum Bums, Threes Away, Buried […]

    Album Review: Vinyl Dharma – The Lost Years

    It’s hard not to tap your feet or bob your head as soon as you hit the play button on this album. Vinyl Dharma’s The Lost Years is full of energy throughout. What’s even better is that it manages to maintain that energy in different ways. Whether it’s catchy dance tracks, campy rock songs, or edgy electro-fuzz, the album delivers the eclectic sound without ever sounding confused. The album starts with catchy dance tracks including “MDC (Midnight Dance Culture)” & […]

    Interview w/ Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind

    Third Eye Blind, who dropped classic tunes such as “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Jumper” and “Never Let You Go,” will be back as one of the main attractions of SXSW 2013. Frontman, Stephan Jenkins, and company are working on their fifth studio album to follow up 2009’s “Ursa Major” which debuted No. 1 on the digital charts that rocked capacity crowds in Austin in 2010.

    Summer Interview with Ghostland Observatory

    “Tonight we GLO!” the catch phrase my friends and I have coined every time we are getting ready for a Ghostland Observatory concert. If they play somewhere in Texas, there is a good chance we will be there. SInce their formation in 2003 Ghostland has formed somewhat of a cult following. Their crowd mimic costumes of Aaron Behrens’ once long braids and Thomas Turner’s Texas flag cape. The two band members have sold out shows across the Country and bring […]

    311 & Slightly Stoopid at Whitewater & RyMo Interview

    With more than a decade of making music together, the members of Slightly Stoopid have perfected one of the rarest and most valuable skills a band can develop: the art of the stealth groove, that knack for quietly, almost innocently, sliding into a composition, and utterly lassoing anyone within earshot by mid-song. That’s where the band has come to reside, musically: deep in the pocket, that ever-elusive, funky trench where a band can entrance an audience, hypnotize it and hold […]

    Clown of Slipknot & His New Book… APOCALYPTIC NIGHTMARE JOURNEY

    When I received news of a set interview with Shawn Crahan from Slipknot, my jaw dropped. When their self-titled debut album dropped in 1999, the songs “Wait and Bleed”, “(Sic),” “Surfacing,” and “Spit It Out” did not stop playing in my home. Seeing Slipknot live is an incredible experience. These guys have so much energy when they go on stage. They killed it when I had the privilege of checking them out during their “Tattoo The Earth Tour 2000” in […]

    Santa Barbara natives Rebelution made their mark at Stubbs BBQ on February 10th, yet again. With a sold out crowd this could have possibly turned into a two night show. The release of their latest album “Peace of Mind” generates a reggae rock fusion sound. Lead singer Eric Rachmany’s vocals carry on a smooth sound that keeps every song catchy. As bassist Marley Williams danced around and strummed that first chord, the stage quickly filled up with smoke. Not only […]

  • Making a Sublime Comeback

    Making a Sublime Comeback

    I remember my friend popping the cassette tape in his car one day. As the heavy bass and drum started the album off, I was looking at this tripped-out sun on the album cover with the word SUBLIME on top and 40oz to Freedom on the bottom. I thought it was so sick. As the record (or tape) played on, it was tough to not bob your head to the jams. I instantly became a fan of Sublime and loved […]

    The ADICTS – A Quick Conversation with Monkey Before Europe

    O my little brothers. After 30 years and counting, The Adicts are still glazing devotchkas and malchicks with their rainbows and ultra violence. Hailing from Ipswich, Suffolk, England, this UK 80’s punk band was not always called “The Adicts.” Beginning life in late 1975 as “Afterbirth & The Pinz” and later going through different names such as “Fun Adicts” and “ADX,” the Adicts finally stuck. The bands “Droog” outfits and Singer Monkey’s glamorous costumes are an inspiration of Anthony Burgess’ […]

    Blag Dahlia Talks 2011 with THE DWARVES

    The Dwarves are a classic punk band from the early 80s that formed in the underground scum-punk scene in Chicago, but are now based out of San Francisco. Their sound in the beginning was hardcore metal, with not so great sound production. They weren’t known for their sound though. They were known for their hectic shows that would normally last under 15 minutes, because they would get kicked out of their own show by the venue or by cops for […]

    Against Me! Speaks About Current Tour

    If you’re a fan of Against Me!, you may know that the end of 2010 wasn’t exactly kind to the veteran punk rock act out of Gainesville, Florida. Against Me! was formed in 1997 by lead singer and guitarist Tom Gabel. 2002’s Reinventing Axl Rose garnered the band fans within the punk rock community, while the release of “New Wave” in 2007 (followed by “White Crosses” in June 2010) brought more mainstream success. The fall of 2010, however, delivered a […]
