    Big Shoes To Fill: Scott Mellinger of Zao

    Big Shoes To Fill: Scott Mellinger of Zao

    Scott Mellinger joined the legendary band Zao to replace Brett Detar as a musician between the albums, When Blood and Fire Bring Rest and Liberate Te Ex Inferis. He immediately brought a new sonic element helping them arrive at their signature sound, but his influence didn't stop there. Despite being in a band with big personalities, Scott emerged as a leader and became the band's stabilizing point guard. Zao's streak of longevity was truly unexpected given their early years and the amount of environmental change that has occurred since the late ’90s, making them about as legendary as it gets in our world. Scott's a great thinker and I always feel it's a privilege to speak with him.

    "Git Snake Bit" with The Showdown

    "Git Snake Bit" with The Showdown

    The Showdown is a very special band who was able to break a lot of new ground and turn a lot of heads by taking what was going on in heavy music and amplifying it to extreme levels by adding new layers of performance that mixed art and crowd interaction with humor to create a symphony of chaos that played the audience like an instrument. Their front man David Bunton is a legend in the scene when it comes to stage persona. The Showdown blended metal with classic rock, and were a big part of the dirty southern heavy scene along with He Is Legend and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster.

    Tooth & Nail All Purpose All Star: Randy Torres

    Tooth & Nail All Purpose All Star: Randy Torres

    Lead singers tend to get and often deserve the most attention in most bands. They carry a large burden and the spotlight is not at all easy to manage, but some of the most talented and valuable people are not the ones in the limelight. Randy Torres has done it all in the Tooth & Nail world, and he has done it well.  Guitarist for Project 86, engineer for Aaron Sprinkle, A&R for the label, touring musician for Anberlin, composer, sound designer and more.  Coming from a supportive environment in SoCal at just the right time in the late 90's, Randy has been able to make a great career for himself and that career is marked mainly by how personable and likable and easy to work with he is. He has been a great inspiration of how to be for many people including me.

    Hanging with Hangnail

    Hanging with Hangnail

    Hangnail is an old school classic Tooth & Nail punk band and is back with new holiday music! It's their first new music in 17 years.  This seemed like a good occasion to hang out with the whole band and look all the way back to the mid 90's as this group of best friends in high school, who never had a lineup change and were first generation Tooth & Nail kids just trying to play cover songs until they got their first big opportunity at Cornerstone '98.

    Acceptance: Major Label Guinea Pigs

    Acceptance: Major Label Guinea Pigs

    Acceptance is a Tooth & Nail artist a couple of decades in the making.  They just made and released their first album on Tooth & Nail called Wild, Free this year. But it was right here in the Seattle Tacoma area where Acceptance was founded in 2003, right at the time that Tooth & Nail was transitioning to the new sound with the explosion of the 2nd generation.  Acceptance, who were first generation Tooth & Nail kids, teamed up with Aaron Sprinkle, and instead of taking the indie path, they were one of the first bands to be scooped up by a major label right off the bat and in a lot of ways were the major’s guinea pigs. they created a landmark album called Phantoms that became a legend of the scene, but the band never truly found a groove before disbanding in 2006. Their music, however, would continue to rise in popularity thereafter, and is still known as a flagship Seattle band.

    Slick Shoes: Are You Crazy? (Full Band)

    Slick Shoes: Are You Crazy? (Full Band)

    Slick Shoes is back and full of new life. It's not uncommon for bands to reunite these days, but it's often just to play through an old album or do a reunion tour. Occasionally, reuniting bands put out new music. Some times that music is good, but rarely does it capture the full original spirit or energy of the band's former youthful self, but in this case, Slick Shoes has in fact done that. It has been 17 years since their last album, and the new music is killer. 2003 was pretty much the year that the Tooth & Nail scene had fully completed its generational change from punk and pop punk to the rising emo and screamo. This conversation with the full band really helps to paint the picture of that transition. We also cover the band's formation, personalities, and musical approach.

MiketheMisery ,

Stretch Arm Strong next please

Great show. Let’s hear an episode with Stretch Arm Strong. A criminally underrated band within the Solid State world yet an unbelievably important and loved band within the hxc world.

CMonty661 ,

Most annoying voice ever

If you like hearing a hick talk about pop punk. This is for you.

Cjhardcore ,

This is such a great podcast.

It drips pure nostalgia and it does does a great job of reflecting on an incredible era of music. I love seeing them hitting the earlier 90’s stuff that they are hitting now.
