Episode #220, Song Premiere and Interview with The Dopamines

10:59am - 12:01pm

Hello Hello Hello!

First block features some great new hits by Call It Off (Eindhoven, Netherlands), The Bombpops (Oceanside, CA, USA), F.O.D. (Lier, Belgium) and Capital Youth (Geneva, Switzerland).

And then was the time for the big premiere. I really like The Dopamines so I was super stoked to present their new superhit “Common Rue” from their album “Tales Of Interest”. Jon Lewis of The Dopamines called in from a personal conference room and we talked about the process of recording this album, metal influences, how Jon’s passion for cars and auto junkyards resulted in the record cover, album release organization and of course NOFX.

“Tales Of Interest” comes out on Rad Girlfriend Records and after the premiere I played hits from their fresh releases by Crusades (Ottawa, ON, Canada), The Raging Nathans (Dayton, OH, USA), Capitalist Kids (Austin, TX, USA), Hospital Job (Springfield, IL, USA) and Wonk Unit (London, UK).

And in the end of the episode I did a ticket give away to a show which features four great local bands You Big Idiot, ATD, Modern Terror and Obscene Being who are playing at SBC tomorrow.
