NYC! One week away from our free show in Brooklyn. www.bkbazaar.com for details.
Gonna be a fun one.
2/4’s of A Great Big Pile of Leaves (Tyler & Pete) are taking over Your Favorite Album next week, and I get to be their guest as I talk about one of my favorite albums. Be sure to check it out on Tuesday!
My turn to talk about one of my favorite albums.
First off thanks to all of my friends with podcasts for allowing me to be on their shows. Secondly thanks to everyone who has listened to anything I have had to say on these shows. It was a lot of fun and I even learned a little about myself! Check out these shows I was on by clicking on each one…

Author and all-around good dude, Brian Diaz dropped by my office to talk about Guns N’ Roses “Appetite For Destruction” and how his world was changed while in a Burlington Coat Factory. As an adult, Diaz (I don’t think I’ve ever called him Brian) ended up working for Guns N’ Roses, so we also talk about how that affected him after having spent so many years loving and absorbing this album.
New episode of Your Favorite Album is up, and it’s a good one! Brian Diaz is on the show talking about Guns N’ Roses’ “Appetite For Destruction”. How many people get to end up working for the band responsible for their favorite album? Whatever the number, Diaz is one of them.
To us, these tracks are priceless. Some of them show our earliest efforts in songwriting while others show the process it took to make our records what they are today. We never thought some of these strange demos would ever see the light of day, but we had so much fun opening up the vault and seeing what was in there. We included some never-before-heard unreleased songs, acoustic jams, and basement-style early versions of some of our favorite tunes.
To us, they’re priceless, but we wanted you to have them. 5 bucks gets you 17 tracks, but you have the option to pay more if you want to really help the Swell Dogs out. If you got tax money back, this is a great place to spend it, because as a band, we just PAY a buttload of taxes at the end of the year instead of getting anything back. Plane tickets to the UK, paying back our awesome label No Sleep records, compensating for a Brazilian promoter NOT paying us.. lots of setbacks. We are currently self-managed, and trying hard to make sure we can keep touring and having fun.
Hope you enjoy this weirdness. RIP Ultimate Warrior.
