Fat Mike of NOFX Reveals Plans to Create a Serious Musical

if you missed the interview I apologize

First off, let me start by saying that if you think that Fat Mike is planning on creating another half ass album concept musical like the Green Day Musical, you’re wrong. As a matter of fact it turns out that Fat Mike is actually a huge fan of Musical Theater and has been ever since he was just a kid. This Weds March 23 at 8pm on www.punkradiocast.com you can tune in for the phone conversation I had with Fat Mike about the Musical project he’s been working on, how he had the honor of meeting the cast of Avenue Q, and hear for yourself just how serious he’s really taking this whole thing. But you know I can’t stop there…We also discuss things like happiness, pride, “socialism”, homosexuality, economic recessions, sex dungeons, Fat Wreck Chords, and Old Man Markley.  More Interview to come later in the show after I play music from a shit ton of bands including Old Man Markley, Cobra Skulls, Chixdiggit! a block of new music from Ninjas With Syringes and To Ed Gein. I take a moment to promote an upcoming show I’m playing with my band Scholar and Banquets in Rochester NY March 26th we go on at 4pm. Then it’s back to new music from Agnostic Front, Wreak Havoc, and Rise Against… a political set. Then we dive into a brief interview with Todd Serious of The Rebel Spell and spin a few tracks from their album Beautiful Future while discussing surveillance grids and Russian revolutionaries. Finally I get back into it with Fat Mike and ask him “why a tour in Canada and why not Upstate New York” which gets a funny reaction in my opinion!














There’s been one constant in NOFX’s twenty-eight year career, it’s been their quest to innovate, whether that means writing the world’s most epic punk song (“The Decline”), playing shows in some of the most dangerous locales in the world (as evidenced in their Fuse TV series Backstage Passport) or tackling subject matter that will make you laugh, cry and critically think—often within the confines of the same song. NOFX are very excited to announce their first cross Canada tour since 1994. The tour kicks off in St. Johns, Newfoundland bringing the band the farther east in North America than they’ve ever been. The Great White NO[FX]rth Tour will also feature two Fat Wreck Chords favorites: Teenage Bottlerocket and Old Man Markley.

Wanna get your hands on a limited pressing of both “Fuck the Kids” and “Surfer” on colored vinyl and simultaneously help out with the tragedy in Japan? Of course you do, cause everyone knows that if NOFX fans are known for anything it’s their compassionate nature…

Seriously, though, the Japanese people have always been huge supporters of FAT, generous hosts to our touring bands, and great supporters of punk rock in general. So it’s time for us to all chip in for the cause, which is why all of the proceeds from your purchase will go directly to Japanese aid.

It’s a win win. You get two super rare pieces of NOFX vinyl and you come out looking like a saint. Besides who are we kidding, you’re gonna make a 300% profit on your investment when you throw these up on eBay in a couple weeks.

If you can’t afford the 7”s please give what you can to one of the many organizations helping out Japan. Stay strong Japan.




Cobra Skulls, The Rebel Spell, Dr Acula, And Arthur

Blaqart Radio and Action Time Radio

I’m Back. I figured since I’m back why not use this site to properly announce my upcoming episodes of Blaqart Radio and Action Time Radio on www.punkradiocast.com every Weds night at 8pm EST to 11pm EST.

LISTEN NOW http://bratr.podomatic.com/entry/2011-03-03T18_05_44-08_00


I start off the night with an interview with Devin Peralta of Cobra Skulls about the track Hot Sand from their latest EP Bringing The War Home. We discuss how no one seems to care about stopping the never ending war in the Middle East, also the uprising in the Middle East, globalist agendas, the future of gas prices, social engineering. We also talk about building an honest grassroots community  amongst your friends, family, and neighbors within your local community should your government ever collapse.  Then Devin starts talking about his environmental viewpoints of overpopulation, over consumption, alternative energy, how consumerism effects our atmosphere, our responsibility as a species to our Earth , and how suburbs make oil execs happy.  I mean Devin really hates the suburbs! Always a great guest. Facebook, Buy The Album


After that I play 2 tracks from Canada’s The Rebel Spell and grill singer Todd Serious about the themes within their latest album It’s  A Beautiful Future.  What does it mean to want to be left alone by the daily bombardment of soul crushing, insecurity eating pop culture and lame-stream media?

Dr Acula‘s Tyler Guida joins the show to introduce me to a whole new, more monstrous Dr Acula with their latest release Slander. We discuss a few of the biggest “tits chants” in Dr Acula history and how we would like to see those “tits chants” grow bigger and fuller and maybe even cause a natural disaster, while talking about the song Party 2.0. Then it’s back to the gutter while discussing the absolute breakout hit Fire Crotch (The Venereal Van Ride). Facebook, Buy The Album


Finally on the show Neil Hundt and Tom Wisniewski of the band Arthur discuss one of my favorite tracks from their album Watch The Years Crawl By, a song entitled Tie Me To You. Website, Buy The Album
