Sometimes you have a confluence of thoughts coalesce in way that begs immediate attention, and now is one of those times. After watching Friday’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher and the interaction with controversial guest, Milo Yiannopoulos, I couldn’t sleep. The provocateur provoked.
Everything post the election of Donald J. Trump feels like uncharted territory, and what I thought I knew contained vast holes of ignorance. In my world, the Milos, Ann Coulters, and Alex Jones’ were sordid, fringe figures, and yet what I failed to see was that they were signaling of a change in the culture. That’s the thing about getting older; the culture changes while you’re distracted in self-satisfied comfort of predictable outcomes. It never feels good to be out of touch.
Doc rings in the New Year by thanking his gear sponsors ESP Guitars, EVH Amps and Cabs, Dunlop Picks, MXR Effects, Planet Waves Cables, D’Addario Strings, Toontrack Software, Kemper Profiling Amps, Zoom, Samson, and Sennheiser.
He also speaks with Mutiny Within bassist, Andrew Jacobs, about how AJ hustled and masterminded their way to a record deal with Roadrunner even as an inexperience band, navigating the local New Jersey metal scene, the art of networking, the trouble the band ran into with touring and member changes, burning out, working at Warner Music Group, and the current state of Mutiny Within.
This is episode features the Mutiny Within song “Justify” from their album Origins due Feb 10th 2017.
Doc vents about the holiday blues, and speaks with Century Media A&R guy, Mike Gitter, about his start as a journalist in the early punk and hardcore scene, his time in the major label world at Atlantic records, the process of making records with bands, his legacy at Roadrunner Records and working with bands like Killswitch Engage, Glassjaw, and Ill Nino, and reveals what he looks for in upcoming bands.
This episode features the song “Calculating Fate” from Death I Am and a live version of “Numbered Days” from KiIlswitch Engage.
