I had the idea to do a few special episodes where Josh Bayer and I discuss "Classic Albums". We're defining classics by what we think are classics, not some paid-by-word music journalist bullshit. Case in point, this episode deals with "In My Head" by Black Flag, a record that most punks hate and was mostly forgotten. This is one of my favorite records.
You can look forward to episodes dedicated to "Cold Lake" by Celtic Frost and "Born Again" by Black Sabbath, just to give you an idea of where I'm at with all of this.
I consider Craw to be on the short list of killer bands that were mostly active during the 90's. Back then, there was a gray between metal, punk and indie rock where some of my favorite bands existed; think Dazzling Killmen, Jesus Lizard, Tar and Unsane but different. They were truly on their own frequency.
Dave McClelland, guitarist and one of the founding members joins me and journalist Hank Shteamer in the studio for a really cool hang out. Dave is spearheading a mission to collect Craw's early, more obscure recordings and release them in a deluxe, remastered LP boxed set. If your a Craw fan, or even just a fan of intense, creative music, please check out his Kickstarter campaign.
Author / journalist and heavy metal fan Laina Dawes stopped by to chat about here recent book "What are You Doing Here" a Black Woman's Life and Liberation in Heavy Metal".
I first became aware of Matt Staggs through his work with Disinfo. I dug his writing and for a time, he was the host of the Disinfo Podcast which was one of my inspirations for starting Everything Went Black. Matt now has a new podcast called Staggnation, so please check it out.
Matt graciously gave up some time out of his Saturday afternoon to chat about freelancing, Jiu Jitsu and the desire to be a self-actualized person.
Happy New Year
