    Ep. 175 - Bane 2.0 (Pt. 3/5) - Nick Branigan (Bane. Close Call. Silent Drive. Hands & Knees)

    My guest for Part 3 in the "Bane 2.0" series is drummer Nick Branigan. He played drums on the "It All Comes Down To This" and "Give Blood" records. He toured the world for several years with "Bane". He was in the Boston hardcore band "Close Call", after "Bane", he joined "Silent Drive" and went on to create music in several different genres. His current band is "Hands And Knees" and has been with them for over eleven years. I know I state it often, but it's the truth... this was a lot of fun to do. Enjoy! Bane Forever.

    Ep. 174 - Bane 2.0 (Pt. 2/5)- Brendan "Stu" Maguire (Bane. Reach the Sky)

    Ep. 174 - Bane 2.0 (Pt. 2/5)- Brendan "Stu" Maguire (Bane. Reach the Sky)

    My guest for Episode 174... Part 2 in the "Bane 2.0" series is bass player, Brendan "Stu" Maguire! Stu played and toured with "Bane" extensively and recorded the "World Series" 7" collection in 2009. We begin this episode speaking about his battle with pancreatic cancer. For what this man has gone and is going through, his positive attitude and fight is second to none. It's inspiring to say the least. We both called the first half hour or so of this conversation, "The Ailment Episode" since he tells his story, then I wasn't going to, but he wanted me to tell mine as well. Not that we're comparing, but my story doesn't even come close. We then go into his history, growing up, and his time in "Reach the Sky". I never met Stu in person and really hope that I do sooner than later. The man is an inspiration and my hat goes off to his amazingly supportive family.

    The final Bane set was released when a 20k goal was reached within 24 hours via GoFundMe set up by Sunny from Hate5six. Once the goal was reached, the last set streamed. But the goal has been raised to 50k to help him and his family get through this ordeal. So... if you can, please visit the link below and help.

    Thanks for your time Stu.
    I hope you all enjoy this episode. Respect.

    Ep. 173 - Bane 2.0 (Pt. 1/5) - Peter Chilton. (Bane. Silent Drive. Nova Motorcycles)

    "The Isolation Sessions" are over. The first five part "Bane Series" is over... but "Bane 2.0" has just begun. Get ready for another five part series with former members and people very closely associated with them. My first guest in the "Bane 2.0" series is bass player, Peter Chilton. He has played on every full length "Bane" record, toured the world several times over and is an enormous part of the band. He created the artwork for several "Bane" album covers along with dozens of other bands. He was also in the bands "Godflaw" and "Silent Drive". He currently is co-owner of "Nova Motorcycles", a custom motorcycle and repair shop. This was awesome to do. I hope you enjoy this one as well. Once again... Bane Forever.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 18 - Phil Demmel. (Vio-Lence. BPMD. Ex: Machine Head. Torque)

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 18 - Phil Demmel. (Vio-Lence. BPMD. Ex: Machine Head. Torque)

    The Isolation Sessions: Volume 18!!! The last in this series that I did during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020. I close this out with the legendary Phil Demmel! Founder and guitarist of "Vio-Lence", "BPMD", ex "Machine Head", "Technocracy" and singer for "Torque". This was another one of those episodes that I never thought I'd ever have a chance to do. My teenage years (and still to this day), "Vio-Lence" was a big part of my soundtrack. We go right into the upcoming new "Vio-Lence" record. We talk about "BPMD", his side project with Bobby Blitz from "Overkill", Mike Portnoy from "Dream Theater" and Marc Menghi from "Metal Allegiance". Their debut record, "American Made" is available now. It's a record of 70's rock songs with a metal twist. We talk about his departure from "Machine Head" after a sixteen year run with them as well as him getting a text from Kerry King from "Slayer" asking him if we could fill in for Gary Holt for a few dates on their final leg of their final tour. Phil Rules. I hope you enjoy this.

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 17 - Joey Southside 2. (The Banner. Artist. Cerebros Podcast)

    The Isolation Sessions: Vol. 17 - Joey Southside 2. (The Banner. Artist. Cerebros Podcast)

    The seventeenth in a series of podcasts during the Coronavirus pandemic. "The Isolation Sessions". It's been close to 150 episodes ago he was on the show the first time. My guest is Joey Stone... also known as Joey Southside. Singer for New Jersey Hardcore/Metal band "The Banner". He's also a ridiculous artist and co-host of the "Cerebros" Podcast with his brother Greg Stone, who was a guest on Episode 107. We talk about how he wanted to throw Jerry Seinfeld a beatin' one night... yeah, Jerry Seinfeld. We get into "The Banner" for a bit, we discuss his podcast which segways right into us nerding out over toys and cartoons from the 80's like two children. Joey rules, The Banner rules and so does is podcast and artwork. Good guy this Joey Southside. Support his ventures. He deserves it. Respect.

The same old story...

I give 5 stars because it is a solid podcast and represents the hardcore and metal communities very well, but Jimmy rambles way too much and if I have to hear the story about how he accidentally got into hardcore via Leeway at a Suicidal Tendencies and White Zombie show way back when, I’m gonna put my head through a wall. Avid listeners don’t need to hear the same stories every single episode, I wanna hear about the guests hence why I’m listening. I know the script: “By accident” I got into hardcore because I went to a Suicidal Tendencies show and White Zombie played before they were big, they looked like a bunch of homeless people playing, Leeway opened and I was like, this is amazing, and there is no gimmick, it’s like a bunch of regular looking guys playing this insane music.” I think I listen now just to see if he’ll actually go an episode without telling that and a few other stories he tells every episode. Aside from that, love the podcast.

Missing New York!

Jimmy does a great job with the Brooklyn Blast Furnace podcast! Great combination of hardcore, horror, and the temptation of food. Several episodes I hear little bits about where they are at, or someone talking about a recipe. I usually get hungry listening. Living in the Northwest I also miss the New York slang and accents. The guests give a great overview of what they did and where they are. The what they did usually triggers great memories of hardcore shows and records from the late eighties into early nineties! Thanks Jimmy & keep up the good work!!!!
