    Harry Miree is a professional drummer that tours with LOCASH. He also has a successful YouTube Channel that teaches drum techniques and functions as a spot for Harry to Vlog. Harry's vlogs are quick witted and on point discussing what it's like being a drummer in today's musical climate. The delivery is from a music lovers point of view and never jaded. But the hardship of playing professional music is stated in a more graceful manner. In the podcast, we talk about punk rock, it's ethics and how it shaped a young Harry Miree. Thanks Harry!

    RIP Chi Pig

    RIP Chi Pig

    Chi and I met in 1995 when I was hired on to be the new sound guy for SNFU. SNFU and I worked together for almost 10 years after that first tour that took me all over North America for the 2nd half of the "voted" tour. Chi and I were room mates on tour because it was my turn. Chi wasn't always the easiest to get along with, but he was my brother in rock and he made a very big impact on my life and my future.Rest in Peace Chi Pig | Ken Chinn

    #272 Ron Hawkins of Lowest of the Low and Do Good Assassins

    Ron Hawkins is the principal song writer and lead singer of Lowest of the Low as well as The Do Good Assassins. Ron has been writing and releasing music since the Late 80's and found some great success in the release of "Shakespeare my Butt". And album that has become the soundtrack of many peoples lives. Shakespeare my Butt was the highest sold independent album in Canadian history until the Barenaked Ladies took the record with their self release Yellow Cassette. Both bands were actually on the same label at that time. Strange right? Ron's next release will be "246" which is an album recorded on a Cassette 4 track recorder. Also strange.Anyways, Ron has always been a great guest when he has been on the show. And this one is his forth time being a great guest and supporter of this show. Thanks Ron, Great to see you again!

    #271 Limo aka Brett Hopkins

    Limo and I go back 25+ years. I replaced him as front of house sound with SNFU in mid 1995 because of his commitment with NOFX. Limo was the main stage tech and monitor guy with NOFX for 24 years. He's been around the world several times. Also known as Brett Hopkins, he's now settled down in BC as a full time barber. He also plays drums in a band called Modern Terror. See the link for the interview with Jeff Doran in episode 207. Thanks Limo for the great chat and catch up.
