Show amendment: the song by Jefferson Airplane is Law Man, NOT Outlaw. Dunno why I kept messing that up.

This week I welcome to the show IRON CHIC bassist and Dead Broke Rekerds head honcho, Mike Bruno! Iron Chic were recently in Australia tearing up a storm with their catchy anthemic songs for a new tomorrow. Mike took the time to sit with me and talk about vinyl nerdery. We talk about all sorts of legendary bands like Green Day, the Ramones, the Goo Goo Dolls, Soul Asylum, to name just a few, amongst a whole bunch of other fun topics and chit chat.

This week’s guest is none other than Kamala Parks! Fans of the Berkeley punk scene would no doubt be familiar with her work. Not only was she the drummer for bands like Kamala And The Karnivores, Cringer, Naked Aggression, The Gr’ups, etc. but she was also one of the key people in starting The Gilman Street Project; the iconic punk rock DIY venue that gave such bands as Green Day and The Offspring a place to play before they were launched into the mainstream in 1994. This inspiring interview has Kamala opening up about her involvement in the Berkeley punk scene from booking shows in her hometown to touring Europe – all before she was 20 years old. She tells of working with the likes of Green Day and The Offspring as well as the story behind the Screeching Weasel song, Kamala’s Too Nice. This interview is really something special. If this doesn’t make you want to get up and start making things happen, I don’t know what will. We all need a Kamala in our lives to show us that anything is possible.
