Rank #1: #34 - Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional)

Podcast cover

When you have a musical career as long as Chris Carrabba, there's bound to be some reflection. I sat down with Chris face to face in New York City to discuss his musical life. This was largely unedited with many pauses and air left between question and answer. We dive into his upbringing, the Florida scene and Fiddler Records, the mid 2000s emo boom and what he wants most from his music. An absolutely beautiful soul that’s worthy of his own revival.

Rank #2: #132 - Anthony Green (Circa Survive, Saosin, The Sound of Animals Fighting)

Podcast cover

Today we welcome Anthony Green from Circa Survive, Saosin and the Sound of Animals Fighting. My history with Anthony goes back to the early days of Circa Survive and working alongside him at Equal Vision Records for the Juturna and On Letting Go album releases. As the years passed, we stayed in touch and would see each other as you do when a band rolls through town. Anthony was always super into what I was doing with Washed Up Emo and check in when I’d post something about The Promise Ring or Braid. Anthony came along at an amazing time for punk rock and rode the wave with Circa Survive to heights not afforded many and still can play anywhere in the world for his solo material or with Circa Survive. In the hour we chatted, we got to catch up in thoughts on emo, sneaking up on stage to ask Thursday, who he didn’t know, about joining a certain band. Plus, how I forced Circa Survive to do a Fuse TV event for a girl that really just wanted Panic! at the Disco and where he is now and what he would have said to himself 10 years ago. His new solo album “Would You Still Be In Love” is out now and he’s touring the 10th anniversary of “Avalon” his debut LP now.

We talk about Senses Fail's new album "If There Is Light, It Will Find You" and how the band got their start, the crazy time in the mid-00s when everyone was getting signed. Buddy speaks candidly about what bands were thinking as the emo boom took hold in NJ and in other parts of the country and world. A fun chat and one where he didn’t hold back. I loved hearing his take on emo and the shape it took when Senses Fail were gaining popularity. Thanks for listening!

Rank #4: #73 - The Story of Tom DeLonge's Fake Review of Blink-182's "California"

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to episode 73 of the podcast. Today we’re talking about the story of Tom DeLonge’s fake review of Blink 182’s new album California. Right after the record came out, a friend posted this review from Reddit on Facebook and I couldn’t stop laughing. The references were amazing and I jokingly said, “hey whoever wrote this I wanna talk to you.” Low and behold, Mike Jones who wrote the fake review, followed me on Facebook and we connected to chat about the review. We also chatted about how long he’s been doing these type of reviews, and if he hope Tom reads this review.

If you’d like to read the fake review beforehand, head to WashedUpEmo.com and I’ve linked it on the podcast episode page.

Twenty one episodes in and I'm finally legal. What better way to celebrate adulthood of the podcast than by having one of my favorite musicians Jim Adkins from Jimmy Eat World to chat with me. Jim and I discussed his first time singing live and what it accomplished to the audience of one, the first goal of the band and his take on how the band has had such longevity in the scene. There is so much in this episode that I think every fan new and old will find something interesting. From Jim's love for Guided by Voices, back story on the new album and a couple outtakes at the end you will surely not want to miss. I am beyond grateful for those that helped make this happen and Jim for taking the time to chat.

Rank #8: #154 - Ian MacKaye

Podcast cover
Read more

A few months ago, I asked a couple of prior podcast guests Brian Lowit from Lovitt Records and now Dischord Records and John Davis from Q and Not U, if they thought an in-person interview could happen. Through their help and a little timing of a personal wedding in DC set this plan in motion. 

As this podcast gets into its 8th year with no signs of slowing down, I thought it was time to have the person partly responsible for why I first got into straightedge, punk, hardcore, and the DIY ethos I continue to carry through during my day job in the music industry at large. 

Ian couldn’t have been more gracious and after some back and forth and a nice Delta airlines agent, I was there with enough time to do the interview and make the wedding later that day. 

I never expected to have the opportunity to talk to one of my heroes in this setting and for Ian to spent a couple of hours showing me around the Dischord house, the archives and then an interview will be remembered forever.

Saves the Day, at it since 1997, has had their share of ups and downs but through it all they struck a chord with fans and still do to this day. I had the pleasure of having Saves the Day be my one and only band I ever booked. Sold out pizza restaurant in the middle of North Carolina after only booking one boysetsfire show. Take that Facebook Events. Also, vivid memories of worn out cassette tapes of "Can't Slow Down" and "Through Being Cool" that are still so near and dear to my heart. Chris was gracious enough to sit down with WashedUpEmo.com prior to their latest headlining tour in support of the new self-titled album. We spoke about Saves the Day's first show, the term "Emo Rock Stars," meanings behind the song "Shoulder to The Wheel," who designed one of their classic album covers and Chris' favorite Sean McGrath memory. Listening back, it's great to see how happy Chris is at this point in his life and how much he is enjoying the ride. I couldn't be happier, I hope you are too after listening to this one. Enjoy.

If you aren’t aware, Anthony’s YouTube channel, The Needle Drop, is insanely popular and influential for reviewing music. How he ended up with this title of Internet’s busiest music nerd, is quite a story

Recently, Anthony and I connected over the phone to discuss how he got into doing this for a living and what he enjoys most out of reviewing music. Don’t worry, we got nerdy on some real screamo too.

Tim and I chat about his early bands, one that opened up for 311 in high school, his desperation to be on Caulfield Records, the influence of Fugazi on him and what he’d love to be doing in the future and at 70 years old.

I couldn’t be happier to check Cursive off the list of bands for the podcast and after speaking with Tim, it was worth the wait.

Jade and I connected early on during the first album, "Real Stories Of True People Who Looked Kind Of Like Monsters." I was a huge fan and supporter. Following that debut, it was great to see the mainstream press take a liking to him after the amazing follow-up, "The Yunahon Mixtape." Now the album coming out August 16th, "Basking in the Glow," should propel him to another level. It’s that good. On the podcast, Jade and I discuss his early music life getting heckled, the new album, and there’s a good portion about the NBA, which we’re both huge fans of.
