Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing the one and only Glen E. Friedman to discuss, among other things, what he’s been up to during the lockdown, his entry into the Punk, Skate and Hip-Hope scenes, his early days as a photographer, some of his proudest moments, favorite records and a whole lot more.
Bathroom of the Future is at it again with another hard-hitting Nerd-Punk EP Everybody Else Here Is Having Fun. Starting with a chiptunes edit of one of the songs on the EP Capcom Girl followed by “Capcom Girl” and “Watching Bill and Ted Outside,” this 3 song EP encompasses all that the trio stands for in defining the genre of Nerd-Punk/Rock.
Different people will have different answers to this question, but for my money, if the conversation doesn’t include The Dictators, they honestly, what’s the point?
While not being a huge success at the time, Repeater is now considered to be hugely influential. In my opinion, it is a classic—an important part of music history. The list of bands influenced by what Fugazi was doing at the time is endless.
What if I told you that there was an unknown Punk band, which featured Greg Gilmore (Mother Love Bone) on drums, Duff McKagen (Guns N’ Roses) on guitar as well as vocalist John Conte, and bassist Todd Fleischman?

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a strange time. There have been ups, and there have been downs. Things lost, and things gained. Over the course of the last year and a half, or maybe longer, I’ve made some new friends, bass player and veteran Punk/Indie rocker Andrew Earle is one of those friends.
I’ve got Ian Taylor with us today. We talk about his early days out in the des, how he came to love Punk, end up buddies with Nick Oliveri and eventually take his well-deserved place within the legendary Punk Rock outfit, the Adolescents.
Leftöver Crack was also the last concert I went to before the pandemic shut live music down as we know it. It seems like everyone that loves music has their final show stuck with them in their brain. At least, I know I have.
Josh Caterer is responsible for some of the most emotive, though-provoking, and generally catchy Pop/Punk tunes of the 90s. This time, the old saying is wrong because this old dog has undoubtedly learned some new tricks.
Greg Hetson has been a member of two of the most influential Punk Rock bands ever to take the stage. With both the Circle Jerks and Bad Religion, he’s given us some of the most incredible Punk Rock licks, one that will forever echo off of kid’s bedrooms walls.
