Radio - Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Freddy Pompeii is one of the nicest folks I have met in the punk rock scene. Cleave first told me he was coming to town when he first went to Philly to talk about a Secrets reunion show. This must have been a year or so ago. So we had been planning to talk to him for a while now. We arranged for a studio 3 session that he wound up being too sick to make. I had given up trying to get this interview. My life was a little crazy at the time, but thanks to the encouragement of Greg Dick and Mickey Skin nursing him to health and getting him to the radio station, it happened. This interview took place on November 26th, 2015, but because we had just aired a studio 3 session with the other guys in the Secrets we saved this for Oscar Night. Freddy tells us about how “Screaming Fist” was written and this was the first time I had ever heard this story. Freddy sets some historical inaccuracies about the Viletones in this interview. He tells us stories about New Rose like the time Mick Jagger bought a ton of things in the store to give out at a benefit show that the band was sentenced to perform. And we get into the Secrets which was different territory not discussed in the interview with John, Bryant, and Cleave back in November. You can download that interview here.

I read about BLOODRUST in the March 2016 issue of MRR under the demo section. The review was written by Robert from Conquest for Death who’s opinion I trust. He describes the band as fast and straight forward hardcore and likens them to bands like AUS ROTTEN which clinched it for me. BLOODRUST are no clone. They hold their own. Check out their demo at bandcamp.
