An Interview with Saves The Day: Fruitarians

It’s hard to believe that Saves The Day have been at it for over 15 years. It seems like just yesterday I bought their 1999 album, Through Being Cool. Now, in 2013, with some lineup changes, the boys have a new self-titled release on the shelves, a headlining tour, …

Interview with The Bouncing Souls: In Orbit

When I think of bands that define genres, certain acts stick out. When I think of punk, I immediately think of The Bouncing Souls. They have been performing and active for pretty much my entire life, and there are no signs of them slowing down. Every time I have groups …

When I think of the metal band GWAR, a million and one things come to mind. Original, fun, crazy, heavy and theatrical are just a few adjectives to describe them. I recently had the honor and privilege of interviewing Oderus Urungus, the lead vocalist. We chatted about everything such as …

Maria Mar’s Local Radar: Napalm Party

Locals, we meet again on the radar train. Can you believe we are in September already? Summer flew by and left me with many fond memories of outdoor shows, band barbeques, studio sessions, tours and tons of new music. I am hoping the fall has even more to offer, and …

Interview with Kid Felix: Satisfaction

Having worked with so many local bands in the past few years, it’s always somewhat rewarding to see many of them break beyond the “local” boundaries. Sometimes it’s sad to see bands break up or fall under the “radar,” yet others seem to flourish, even while following that simple DIY, …

Interview with The Everymen: Partying On Stage

When I think of bands, I generally think of four to five members rocking out. It’s rare to find a solid lineup of nine members, each contributing equally the massive sound that is called The Everymen. Hailing out of Tuckerton, New Jersey, they have been a staple in the local …
