So much time has passed since my last podcast I’ll bet you might think you thought I podfaded. Well, you can set aside your fears as Most People Are DJs may rust but it will never fade away! This is a catch up episode to let you know all the activity I have been up the last few months, including comic conventions like C2E2 and Motor City Comic Con and Movement, Detroit’s electronic music festival. Some of the celebrities (at least in my book) I met along the way included cosplay superstar, Yaya Han, Katie Cassidy from Arrow and hipster rap artist, Riff Raff Pics.
In the beginning of the show, I also talk about the positive and negative aspects to doing an email interview. The end part of this episode I play some clips from my interview with Marc Evan Johnson and Ben Blacker from the Thrilling Adventure Hour Podcast. They talk about how Marc became the voice of Sparks Nevada and what it’s like being backstage at a TAH show. Besides the podcast, Marc and Ben are working on a hundred different things, Marc did a pilot called Fatrick and Ben is doing a run on Marvels Thunderbolts.You can read my post from the interview at Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth. If you are at San Diego Comic Con you can catch the TAH crew performing and hanging out.
The music from the show is taken from 8-Bit Operators “Enjoy the Science: A Tribute to Depeche Mode.” A new 8-Bit collection of Depeche Mode covers that are brilliant and interesting takes on 15 of Depeche Mode’s best songs.

They started out as Lost Boys playing raw, punky music but with an occasional stroke of tender beauty. Soon they found themselves and refined who they are. They are the Prude Boys and they are coming to your town with a soaring guittar, a throbbing bass and a snappy snare. 

MPAD:Who is in the band?

Sadie Sam, the drummer
Quennton Thornbury, guitar & vocals
Caroline Myrick, bass & vocals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 MPAD: When did you form and why?

PB: We formed in the Spring of 2013 (as the Lost Boys), playing music in our buddy's attic to deal with being broke and bored. After playing and realizing we could all write songs together, and were addicted to playing, we got a name and a Facebook.

MPAD: Describe your sound in ten words or less and what band would not offend you to be compared to?
PB: We are: garage-punk-pop-surfy-noisy-rock n' roll kids. We've been compared to The Pixies and we thought that was right nice.

MPAD: What’s your latest release and how can people get it?
MB: Our latest release is a one-take live demo we recorded in our practice garage. It's named "Lost Boys Demo 2014" and is available at lostboysmichigan.bandcamp.com. Our first EP is also there. It's more polished.

MPAD: Favorite local venue and why?
PB: We adore Woodruff's of Ypsilanti. We've played there 6 million times because we love the people who work there, the people who come there, and the cheap drinks. It's like a second home, next to our garage.

MPAD: What’s one another local band you think people should see?
PB: One? We could hardly pick one, so how about two. del Brutto & Double Weirdo. They are raucous, rowdy, crazy dudes and their shows are not to be missed. They're also our best friends.

MPAD: What do you like most and least about Detroit?
PB: Most of all, we love the music here. The scene is diverse and weird and people are pretty damn nice, which is refreshing. We do not so much like the unpredictable and incomplete public transportation system. Bikes work though.

MPAD: Where’s the best place on the internet for people to go hear more from you?
PB: Prudeboys.tumblr.com is the place to go. It has all of our links, plugs, gadgets, trinkets, knick knacks and more. We also have a few videos up on youtube if you search hard enough, like our first music video for "Care Package".

MPAD: What makes being in a band worth it for you?
PB: The money, cars, clothes, and women. But actually, it's because we love playing shows. There's such an exciting energy that comes from playing live. It's exhilarating. It's incredible playing for a crowd. Also, we love the chance shows give us to hear what other bands are doing. We're planning a short tour down south and it'll basically be a vacation where we get to have a good time playing shows with different bands every night. We couldn't think of anything better.

MPAD: You will know the band is successful when…..
PB: When we're not eating Jet's pizza every day. But we'd probably do that anyway.

MPAD: Most embarrassing moment so far….
PB: We genuinely have no shame, but there have been a few shows where maybe we played a little too late in the night, if you catch my drift, and we weren't exactly "on point" or "coherent". I'm sure people have been embarrassed for us.

By now all of you have to know that my two favorite things in life are indie comics and music. I get the best of both of worlds when somebody does both which is what Little Dragon has been up to lately. For their upcoming release "Nabuma Rubberband," Little Dragon is posting "Namuma Comics: The Story of Little Dragon" as a Tumblr IRL (btw, I do not know what "IRL" stands for). . You can listen to a full stream of the album right now on Amazon and at the Tumblr page. Little Dragon has always been a band I have wanted to spend more time with so this is the perfect time to delve into them. "Nabala Rubberband" is quite the jam as they pump up the funk and bring a more organic feel to their music. 

In their press release it says for the album the were musically inspired by the more experimental pockets of Prince's back catalogue, club culture and the vintage Janet Jackson slow jams Yukimi used to listen to wandering around Gothenburg during the unrelenting winter, Nabuma Rubberband has a different feel to previous Little Dragon albums. "When you put some of Janet's really slow stuff on you feel like you're floating," Yukimi explains. "That feeling really influenced me and maybe that's why there are quite a lot of slow jams on the record. In the past we've been a bit self-conscious about making slow jams after 'Twice'. Then we wanted to make dance music which we did with Machine Dreams and then Ritual Union still had a dance vibe, but with this album it wasn't about that. The intention was about whatever we felt strongly about."

Roman Romains played in my hometown opening for Gary Numan with an electric set that started the night off just right. The band is comprised of 2 members from The Duke Spirit, Liela Moss and Toby Butler. They recently released their first album Zeal with music that is a combination of dance with industrial and goth touches. The centerpiece being Liela’s vocals that could be compared to Bjork coupled with the menace of the Knife. Their set was a rousing experience with Leila dancing around at times striking boxer poses, looking fierce and beautiful in the same moment. Before the show Liela filled me in on the forming of Roman Remains and how the tour has been going thus far.

MPAD: Were either of you involved in synth-oriented projects before Duke Spirit?
Liela: Toby remixed some songs for friends and labels we are buddies with - you can find them if you look up Bad For Lazarus from Brighton, UK. He also did stuff for a fave UK label Heavenly so the last Mark Lanegan project called Black Pudding! Then the Gary Numan mix, which led to the tour...

MPAD:I hear a lot of post punk/industrial elements with Roman Remains, tell me about some bands you love that may have some impact on Roman Romains sound?
Liela: SUNNS, NIN, The Knife, Major Lazer, Bjork, Depeche Mode, FuckButtons, Caribou

MPAD: When you were first developing Roman Romains songs did you think you would tour with it?
Liela: We had zero expectations! We weren't sure how it would work logistically! Toby spent a long time thinking out how to make it viable and actually keep lots of live elements truly live and organic despite the programmed foundation to it.

MPAD: What do you like most about touring in America compared to other countries?
Liela:
Big Horizons, crossing Desert then mountains then woodland - basically the geography keeps changing and startling us with its beauty...the food can be pretty delicious too, when you drive off the beaten track...


MPAD
What’s been surprising for you so far on the Gary Numan tour?
Liela:How hilarious and humble he and his band are. How articulate he is when discussing music. Very interesting and inspiring - he works so hard he literally doesn't stop. He's very generous with his energy to fans.

MPAD: With social media and an ongoing internet presence, do you think fashion is becoming a more important aspect to the visual representation of music?
Liela:I'm not sure. It's always had an importance for people that connect costume and style with performance.

MPAD: Do you spend a lot of time on the internet while on tour?
Liela: Not as much as my band mates! I am addicted to looking at property on an app as I go in and out of cities. Last week I wanted to move to Austin. Now maybe Nashville or New Hampshire where I had a good breakfast in an idyllic little town. If people but the album maybe I can live in all of them, haha!

MPAD:There’s a lot of nice balance with the elements of Roman Romains – it’s all noisy, sensual, fun and dark. Was there a lot of intentional thought about the balance of sound or was it more organic?
Liela:There was lots of attention to detail and to keeping things evocative all the way through.

MPAD: I love your song titles, but my focus leans towards the musical and vocal textures of your songs, so much so, I really have no idea what you songs are about! Can you explain a couple for me like “Tachycardia” and “Thirsty As A Truck”?
Liela: “Tachycardia” is really a mantra for myself to remind me to move through life spontaneously in the spirit of non-attachment or concern with who stands beside you in life.  “Thirsty as a Truck” is a collage of lyrics about trying to satisfy desires by misusing alcohol or misusing people's generosity. It's some observations on craving, greed and how isolating that can be...

MPAD: Does this time away from Duke Spirit re-invigorate you for what lies ahead for Duke Spirit?
Liela: Yes definitely! I have Duke spirit ideas on these journeys.

MPAD: Do you think any of Roman Romains sound will creep its way into future Duke Spirit?
Liela: No idea!

The Pack A.D. are a female rock duo that play relentless, pounding rhythms along with screaming guitars and snarling, heartfelt vocals. As the Pack A.D., guitarist and vocalist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller are good friends that make even better music together. They released their first few records independently, honing their craft with non-stop touring. All the work has paid off with a new release, “Do Not Engage” on Nettwerk Records which features 11 blistering songs that continue to expand their range of hard rock anthems. I caught their spirited live show on a Friday night at the Pike Room in Pontiac and managed to get a few minutes of Maya and Becky’s time to tell me more about The Pack AD.   
 
MPAD: How long have you known each other?
Maya: 8 or 9 years. We became fast friends and then fast band mates.
MPAD: You’ve played played Detroit before. Is this your first time playing Pontiac?
Maya: Yes, first time in Pontiac. But we like Detroit, especially downtown. We recorded part of the new album in Detroit.
Becky: We mixed the record here too. We were by Tiger Stadium so we got to watch a game.



MPAD: Your last e.p. was a best of from the last few years. How did you pick the tracks?
Maya:  It wasn’t that hard to pick them. I think there were a couple people that had their say on what should be on there. But I think we got what we wanted.
MPAD: There’s been a progression of your sound over the last few years, is that apparent on the ep?
Maya: Well, I don’t think we can’t not sound like us. Maybe my drumming has gotten better.
Becky: But there is definitely an evolution in our sound. It still sounds like us.
MPAD: I really like your videos!
Becky: That’s because Maya came from a bit of a film background.
Maya:  It seems natural to make videos for our records, and we both like telling stories. We like being goofy, too. Most of our videos are very comical.
MPAD: The one I really like is “Take” where you re-create a Gary Numan video (my favorite artist).
Maya: I was on YouTube watching videos for songs I love and I had never seen this one. After seeing it, I thought this video was the best video I had ever seen, so I suggested to Becky that we copy it.
Becky: It was our best homage to Gary Numan. We’re big Numan fans!
Maya: And we got approval from Gary Numan to do it.


)


MPAD:Have you had other members in the band?
Maya: We started as a 4 piece, but it didn’t really work out. We split off and started playing as a 2 piece and never added anyone since. We’ve had thoughts of hiring a bass player.

Becky: I think that’s the most we would ever do. There’s probably some fear it would change the dynamic we have to let someone else into our weirdness.
MPAD: You used to tour non-stop…
Maya: We used to, but that’s kind of changed. Last year we only played about 18 shows because we were working on the album. So this is the first time in a while we’re doing some heavy touring.
MPAD: Touring seems like a necessity these days…
Maya: Sure, just to make some money, because no one is buying records these days. You have to keep yourself out there or people forget about you. Touring is viable and hard.
MPAD: Where’s the most exotic place you have played?
Becky: We played Bogata, twice. It was interesting. We were staying a block away from the venue so we thought we’ll just walk over. But we were told “no, it’s not safe.”
Maya: Our hotel was guarded by dudes with machine guns. It was pretty intense. At the airport I’ve never been security checked so many times. I kept thinking about “Brokedown Palace” which is why I’ll never go to Thailand.



MPAD: Becky, how long have you been playing guitar?
Becky: 11 years. I probably learned “Smoke on the Water” first, after that I learned “Where Is My Mind” by the Pixies.
Maya: Drummers don’t get that kind of excitement learning their first song.
MPAD: A lot of people think raw, bluesy rock is a guy thing..

Becky: Yes, it’s just not as common because it’s okay for little boys to grow up to be rock star idols and women don’t really get that. I started playing guitar as a hobby and didn’t really think of it going anywhere. But it’s gone well so far. We’re making a living at it, which is more than anyone could really ask for.

On this episode I play music from 2 DJs and talk some TV. Heavygrinder is a DJ that plays a mix of metal and electro. Her sets are some of the most energetic that I have experienced. The song I feature from her is a recently released remix she did of NIN's "Into the Void." If you want to keep up with Heavygrinder you should like her facebook page. Tokimosta is a DJ that mixes soul, hip hop and even some jazz into her music. She has remixed artists like Hundred Waters and release her last record on Skrillex's record label.

This past year and into 2014 has been a very good year for TV shows. The two shows that I've been most into are HBO's True Detective and Netflix's House of Cards. Both of these shows feature well constructed characters and plots that keep you guessing what is going to happen next. The shows are so good that I want more of an experience than just watching the shows so I am checking out show related podcast. Bald Move does a great job covering House of Cards and for True Detective I am listening to True Detective Truth Squad. Both of these shows can be found on iTunes podcasts.

For even more TV talk I feature a few comic book friends of mine talking about their favorite TV shows. My comic book friends include: Dirk Manning, Jordon Trovillion, Ryan Stegman and Jim Towe.

My podcast affiliate for this show is Hostgator - a great company to host your website. When you use the code MOST you can save 30% off a hosted website.
