Interviews

One of the cool parts of doing interviews for RadioRadioX is that I’m finding all kinds of great music for my lawless joyrides. And as I daydream of launching Molotov cocktails at polite society, I hope that Ike’ Wasted World will be on rotation. Hard-driving and in-your-face, Ike’s Wasted World is fronted by Eric Joseph […]

One thing I’m learning from doing interviews is that you come up with lots of good questions that you don’t want to repeat, because every question is a fragile little gem, then you get a band that makes you dust out the best of those questions and beat them into service. Meet Brick by Brick. […]

Sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned hard-driving garage rock band to get the liquor flowing, the tongues wagging and the boogey pumping through the floor with the high-hat hiss and the bass thumps. Blackcat Elliot is just such a band. With Gus on Guitar and Vocals, Marky Balboa on drums and Fast Eddie on […]

At the General Store down the river, go about five miles south past the last Cow Crossing sign, where the trucks in the lot all have mud finishes and if they don’t sell it, you just don’t need it, and you might just find Big Frank and the Bargain Bingers kickstarting Judgment Day. With Frank […]

Punk to me is a raw force that pushes back against the tide of bullshit that seeks to suck the sand from beneath our feet. And metal, which I’ll admit is my favorite of the two genres, hate mail be damned, is like that razor’s edge that carves through all the garbage bags to show […]

RadioRadioX’s Shuffle and Local Lunch host Ralph Renna fires off Five Q&A “quick shots” with the Erotics singer and lead guitarist Mike Trash. RRX: What are your top five  influential albums and why? Mike Trash: Cooper, Kiss, AC/DC, Elton John; a lot of 70’s rock more than 80’s which somehow shocks people for some reason. I can’t […]

Man, there is some crazy shit going on in the sticks around Glens Falls. Fast living, shotgun show-and-tells, boozin’ bamboozlers, bar brawls and in the middle of it all, like a backwoods church choir, is Joe Mansman and the Midnight Revival Band. With members Joe and Alex Mansman, Chris Becker, Jesse Ordansky, Shaft and Johnny […]

The highways and back-alleys of the Capital Region’s punk-industrial landscape would arguably be best put to the music of The Clay People. This Albany based band is as much a movement as a collection of musicians. Through the current line-up of Daniel Neet on lead vocals, Brian McGarvey on guitar and Dan Dinsmore on drums, […]

Any musician who’s gotten past the lottery dreams of fast cars and decadent hotel rooms knows the story of the rock trio Super 400. It’s one of cigarette haze, dimmed lights and pick up sessions, trying to find the right fit and the right sound, and of course, hand-blistering jam sessions in nondescript groove stations […]

There are people in the area who haven’t heard the music of singer and comedian Erin Harkes. I feel bad for you if you’re one of them. With a powerful voice and a surgically sharp wit, Erin has been making the rounds, not only here in the Capital Region, but beyond, even appearing on Late […]
