Salad Days does an admirable job documenting one of longest running and most diverse scenes in the American Hardcore Punk landscape. Scott and Jim were great to talk to, and we cannot thank them enough for sitting down with us. We discuss the film some in the episode, but due to scheduling problems we did not spend as much time on the movie as we would have liked. The interview is great of course, but we wanted also to give the movie a full review. Unfortunately, we got a little distracted so big apologies to Scott and Jim. Suffice to say, we both thought it was great and would strongly recommend seeing it.

We were joined this episode by some great friends. If you are a regular listener than you should know Joseph Gervasi from our two episodes with him, but you should know about LOUD!FAST!PHILLY! His project documenting the Philadelphia punk scene, and of course his work with Exhumed Films who we love and dote over like fan boys. Joseph is great, had great questions, and again without his certainty that we could do an interview like this we might not have taken a chance to get it. Thanks so much Joseph for being awesome.

We were also joined by one of my musical heros and nicest guys ever, Mike McTernan (Mike DC) of Damnation AD. Mike, being from DC and a musician, was able to add some insight to our conversation, and is just great. Also, if you don’t know Damnation AD get on that right now man.

Wrong Evan was also there.

SOUND NOTES:
We recorded our intro section over the internet so please be patient with the sound, though it did turn out better than it has in the past. During the interview we had issues with one of our Mics not working, so at times sound cuts out some, and you have to strain to hear some of the questions. There was minimal other issues though, and while we continue to be embarrassed by the fact we don’t sound like other fancy podcasts, over all it is not so bad.

Finally, Thanks to Federal Donuts for delicious donuts yet again. Technically, Liam paid for them, but if he had hit them up in advance he would have gotten them for free so that is his bad.
