Awwwwww Scott Hill deserves the radio love. OG surf punk. Awesome docket today
Jon "" Solomon 3:12:30 PM
In line to pick up two grade school kids I barely know before I snag my own kid. Hope they like your show today!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:14 PM
lol Jon let's hope!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:14:21 PM
if they are punk kids then we're set
Jon "" Solomon 3:15:00 PM
They have to learn about this music eventually might as well be today!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:12 PM
Matt Sabbath 3:15:13 PM
This is awesome 🏜️ Twas partially the desert kids interpreting punk that gave us desert/stoner
Commie Francis ☭ 3:15:16 PM
So brave to play this much punk when you usually play stoner metal! From 10 minute songs to 1 minute!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:15:48 PM
hahaha I know right Commie? I had like 20 songs lined up and was shocked I was still under an hour!
Matt Sabbath 3:16:31 PM
Scott Hill's first band was hardcore punk and has the best band name ever: VIRULENCE
Commie Francis ☭ 3:16:52 PM
Bl'ast! I'm excited already
Brian 'D' For Donor 3:17:58 PM
richard lyons 3:18:35 PM
Dang! I didn't see that red light!
Matt Sabbath 3:18:41 PM
I also recommend listeners to watch "What's in My Bag?" with Fu Manchu at Amoeba Records. It's hysterical and all are blazed outta their gourds
Captain Ahab (host) 3:18:43 PM
ruh roh
Captain Ahab (host) 3:19:11 PM
oh my god I love those what's in my bag things but I usually watch like actors and stuff, I gotta find it
Francis 3:19:36 PM
Remember buying this on vinyl when it came out, then got to see them when they all started growing their hair out
Matt Sabbath 3:19:52 PM
Matt Sabbath 3:20:54 PM
Re actors, @ahab, the What's in My Bag with Panos Cosmatos (director) is super interesting
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:35 PM
nice, I'll check youtube
Brian 'D' For Donor 3:24:42 PM
Matt Sabbath 3:25:02 PM

Matt Sabbath 3:27:23 PM
I love OFF! Hilarious videos they make
Matt Sabbath 3:27:53 PM
Keith's autobiography is interesting, very raw
Brian 'D' For Donor 3:28:43 PM
Francis 3:28:51 PM
Oh - have to read that.. What's it called?
Francis 3:29:02 PM
Matt Sabbath 3:29:14 PM
I think it's called Damaged
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:50 PM
I think this song comes on when Scott Hill has to drive thru a school zone and slow down
Andrew Gruen 3:30:13 PM
off! is great! their new album goes much harder than i expected. hopefully i can make it to their rescheduled philly show
Matt Sabbath 3:30:20 PM
Francis 3:30:24 PM
LOL - that's kinda funny choice
Matt Sabbath 3:30:54 PM
Scott goes in the In n Out Burger drive thru and slows it down, blasts Sweet Leaf
Francis 3:31:03 PM
That's when you need a "School -free drug zone"
Brian 'D' For Donor 3:31:21 PM
Geezer right here!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:31:31 PM
ok we are free of the school zone time to speed up!
Matt Sabbath 3:31:50 PM
The world is so much better with Geezer innit
Captain Ahab (host) 3:31:50 PM

Matt Sabbath 3:52:29 PM
This sounds like a Dead Kennedys song
DubNP 3:52:44 PM

Jon "" Solomon 4:05:19 PM
1. This is great. 2. The kids I was driving home did not bat an eye about getting into the car as Rise Above was playing. 3. Did anyone mention a former senator's son who was in a 1980s Dischord band?
Commie Francis ☭ 4:05:49 PM
I would have but i was also driving kids around
Captain Ahab (host) 4:06:05 PM
Matt Sabbath 4:06:13 PM
Commie Francis ☭ 4:06:32 PM
My friend was playing rise above the other day around his kids and one of them asked if it was our band

I wish I could say they both said "Oh! Helmet!" in unison when Blacktop came on but I would feel bad about lying to you good people.
Jon "" Solomon 4:09:23 PM
