Episode 84: Brian ‘Clevo’ Ristau (Ten Yard Fight) “False Hope: The heart of it all”

Brian was the bassist for Boston hardcore band Ten Yard Fight and is a frequent contributor to the 185 Miles South podcast. Hardcore-punk is a small world? Sometimes… Brian and I have been in the same room countless times, we have a million mutuals and have been “followers” of each other on social media, yet […]

Mikey is one of my favorite people. As bandmates in Persistent Aggressor we would often talk music before (during) and after practice at length – it was always a good time. So it only made sense to have him on! Warning. For those of you with sensitive souls that can’t handle real talk about pay-to-play […]

Episode 75: Keith Freeman (Restraining Order/Maniac) “He’s right. Camera Silens is great”

Keith Freeman is truly one of the nicest dudes I’ve met in a while. The prolific and well traveled bassist chatted with me about some of his favorite music. We hit on a lot of different stuff, but all of it rules. This is another one I recorded before the unplanned hiatus, but is one […]
