    Jason Navarro (Suicide Machines, Hellmouth, Break Anchor) - Talk Music To Me #22

    Jason Navarro (Suicide Machines, Hellmouth, Break Anchor) - Talk Music To Me #22

    Jason Navarro Back in March the Suicide Machines released their first record in fifteen years. If you've listened to any of our recent episodes you know how much we love it. Needless to say we were super excited to talk to Jason Navarro. He opened up about the dangers of coming up in the Detroit punk scene, collaborating with Ice-T, and his favorite – and least favorite – Suicide Machines records. We also get some stories from his time touring with No Doubt.

Nate N. ,

Must listen...if you like music!!!

Jess and Allen know music. They have a great way of explaining what’s good and what’s bad without being offensive to your opinion. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

_rydilla ,

So much YES!

I haven't listened to music in maybe 6 months give or take. In the 3.5 hours I have been bantering with Jess and Allen, and they will make you want to banter with them, I have googled bands that I hadn't heard in years! Sherwood, Bayside, and The Matches to name a few. This podcast has reminded me of the love I used to have for music! I can't wait to catch up on all the episodes!

Better than DANZIG!!

Easily the best way to talk (listen) about music when you're by yourself and and have no one else to talk music with but still want to talk music.
