Mud Ride is the name of Steve’s book. A messy trip through the grunge explosion. Steve of course, was there for all of it as a first hand participant with Mudhoney and before that Green River. We talk about all of that, along with The Thrown-Ups, folk records, crate digging, Monkeywrech, day jobs and lots more. Lukin and Maddison, March to Fuzz, Protest songs. Punk rock. I’m Now! Chardonnay! Fearless Doctor Killers! You Got It (which version! And which song is the best introduction to what Mudhoney does and so very much more. Been trying to get this one done for literal years and HERE. WE. ARE.

Peter Prescott is the impresario and driving force behind Minibeast. To this day though, he is known to most as the drummer for the mighty Mission of Burma. We talk about the iconic album, ep and single by that band, and how it was somehow out of time and ahead of their time, and the reunion, hearing protection measure (the cone of silence!), record score discoveries, rocking while aging, moving to Providence and more. The rise of Volcano Suns, Kustomized and moving from behind the drums to get rhythmically krautrock with Minibeast.

The need to focus on the music without the visuals distracting you “The Eyes are Thieves” (and a side conversation about the nature of music and video), And of course much more DEAD BOB

It has been 1031 days since Falco’s last appearance on Protonic Reversal and mclusky’s US tour is imminent (for real this time). So much has happened since then, let’s start with the return as a “real” band (or as real as any band is) of the mighty mclusky. Hearing protectiong! The recent double A side single released on bandcamp. New record. Venue respect! that was my brain on elves, Christian fitness. and creating songs that will not be played live, Arbiter of Sneers, stagediving, Gallagher Coats, and autozone, music journalism, slagging off bands, etc. Falco is back!
