Wow! Never in my life did I ever think I would be chatting with one of the greatest music engineers and producers of all time but alas, the stars aligned and it happened. My guest this week is none other than Ed Stasium, the legendary producer and engineer of many Ramones albums and cuts. This revealing interview tells all about how he fell into the career of an audio engineer and producer, working extensively with the Ramones, who played what, and he clears up some rumours and urban legends surrounding the recording of the Phil Spector produced End Of The Century album. We also talk about the final Joey Ramone solo album, …Ya Know?, and how that was put together, and so much more. Any fan of the Ramones is going to love this and you can hear it right now by clicking on THIS LINK.

All songs by the Ramones and a couple bonus cuts included from Stiv Bators and Soul Aslyum.

Episode 107

This week’s show features an interview with none other than Tad Doyle from Seattle rockers, TAD. With the Sub Pop reissues being released tomorrow, Damo felt it was the right time to get Tad on the show to talk about the band’s history and the controversy surrounding the album covers that landed the band with serious law suits. You’ll hear it all straight from the man himself so all those myths and stories you have heard in the past can all be finally put to rest. This interview rules and Tad is one of the nicest guys around. Also, check out his new band, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth. Links below.

Episode 105

This week’s show features an interview with Alex Skolnick from Bay Area thrashers, Testament. For me, Testament are easily one of the best bands of the genre and I am stoked Alex came on the show and chatted about learning from Joe Satriani, moving to New York City, his love of jazz music and how it works with Testament, and so much more. If Testament are a band you dig, if guitar nerdery is your jam, then this interview will appeal to you. Heaps good!
