This week on Episode 65 of Bobby Pickles' Podcast (Dying Scene Radio #10), Bob Noxious interviews Joe Queer, guitarist and lead singer of the legendary American punk rock band The Queers on their co-headlining ticket with The Dwarves atBackBooth in Orlando, FL. And Bobby Pickles slurs through his end of this week’s podcast drunk on whiskey.
Dwarves’ frontman Blag Dahlia denies Noxious’ allegations of conspiracy to expel Bobby Pickles from The Bowery Electric on this two-part series concerning “some obscure dude from New York”.
SYNOPSIS OF BANTER:
Bobby asks Bob about how he got his start in radio. Bob explains his humble beginnings on a local Pirate Radio Station and growing up the son of a 70's A.M. Radio "Hot Jock" DJ.
Bobby declares, “pop-anything sucks”, including but not limited to pop-country and pop-hip-hop and pop-punk; he then continues on with a news story about Blink 182. Bob continues to be amazed that the aforementioned band remains seemingly relevant to the patrons of dyingscene.com and quickly dismisses them.
Bob asks Joe Queer why punk rock legends are so much more accessible than the untouchable rock heroes of yesteryear. Joe tells Bob about meeting Joey Ramone and eventually working with him on his solo record. Legendary! (There’s that word again). Later, Blag baba-booeys the interview, asking Joe about "the blow and all that stuff".
Bob discusses his deep seething hatred of the "emo/kid/bubblegum/pop" bands who are continually signed to Epitaph, explaining further that the only relevant band still left on the label is Bad Religion (not true, see: Rancid, Pennywise, Millencolin, Propagandhi, The Descendents...and the list goes on and on).
Talk turns to all of the different silly names that record labels are naming themselves.
Bobby mentions looking forward to seeing Less Than Jake in New Haven, then gloats that there are no Florida dates for Bob to catch. Bob informs Bobby that LTJ's frontman,Chris DeMakes, lives in the same Florida city as he, continuing that they play roughly eight local shows per year.
Bobby, once again, invites Bob to New York for a yearly shindig, then accuses him of being “too pushy” when Bob suggests an interview request with NJ hardcore band,Bigwig. Passive-aggressive puns are passed around playfully as Bob chastises Bobby for a slow news week at DyingScene.com when his supposed “jouralist” co-host covers a story about "some dude’s record collection" - Bobby waxing on about Minor Threat’sFiller EP.
