Episode 24 – Mass Giorgini

1511915_10103197645968778_22548412_nI went down to Sonic Iguana Studios in Lafayette, Indiana to hang out with Mass Giorgini. Mass and I played in Common Rider together. We talked about how the studio started, his history in music, and how it came about that he did a TED talk.

The new Mizzerables record is now “in progress!” We have tracked all the drums and a little bass for the record. I’ll post more updates at our website and on Facebook. Oh and that twitter thing @themizzi.

(R) Episode 1 – Dan Vapid

danvapidToday we revist the first episode of the podcast! I saw Dan this past weekend at the Red Scare 10th Anniversary show he did at GMan Tavern. Great show all around.

Episode 23 – Kendra Sheetz

2014-09-09 18.52.27Kendra Sheetz from For the Love of Punk stops by to talk about writing about music, Chicago bands and Chicago drinking. Be sure to check out her writing at For the Love of Punk!.

The Mizzerables begin recording the next record… well we begin recording the bulk of the album on October 5th. It will probably take till late November to track the record. So a bit longer than originally planned, but we are stoked to be working with Jeff Dean at Million Yen. We are also looking for a new guitarist… email us at themizzerables [at] gmail.com if you are interested!

Any budding recording engineers out there looking for a project… I’m looking for someone to help me mix/master the podcast. Let me know if you are interested and let’s see what we can work out! Email me at whoacast [at] gmail.com!

Episode 22 – Stefania Rudd

stefaniaAs I’ve mentioned many times before on the podcast… I love comedy! It’s not a world I’m a part of though. Thankfully, I met Stefania a few years back through a friend, and that’s a world she is part of. We talk about her own podcast called “Your Chicago”, getting a show at Second City, and her foray into the standup scene.

TWITTER!!! follow me! @themizzi. Still working on the new record. Had some buddies from Detroit come out to do an Undercover track. August 22 we are playing at Reggie’s with Amino Acids! They are from the D. Stoked! Stay up to date with the latest at the band’s website.

Episode 21 – Bobby Miller

bobbyBobby Miller stopped by the studio on a loud day! Apologies in advance for the audio problems on this episode. Seems everything stacked up for this one… loud DJs, crashing computers, missing mic cables… This is episode is a longer one. Bobby and I share some stories about writing, playing shows and touring. Great chat and hope you enjoy!

Podcast moving to Wednesday

Hey all, just a quick note here. I’ve found that with my schedule changes (work, recording, running [long runs are on Sat or Sun which make me not want to move]) in the past few months that Monday is a tough day for me to get the podcast out. I’m just never at the studio on Sunday like I used to be which is when I would polish up an episode. However, since I am invariably there on Monday or Tuesday after work, it makes more sense to move the podcast to Wednesday. So this week’s episode with Bobby Miller from Black Actress will drop on Wednesday and so will all episodes going forward until I change my mind again. That’s all I got, talk to you Wednesday!

Episode 20 – John Polydoros

johnpolydorosJohn Polydoros stops by to chat about Vacation Bible School, Off With Their Heads, and playing the hired gun from time to time.

TWITTER!!! follow me! @themizzi. Dave and I are done with about 7 or 8 tracks of drums for the new record, so it’s coming along really well so far. We put out a new Undercover Series track last week… Rave On by Buddy Holly. More coming soon! August 22 we are playing at Reggie’s with Amino Acids! They are from the D. Stoked! Stay up to date with the latest at the band’s website.

Episode 19 – The Fuckers

1549396_784721468204911_5050131854870622006_nThe Fuckers stopped by for a bit of an unruly chat. The dudes talk about their new record, making burritos… and Luke… well… he speaks.
