Welcome To My World

This week The Gersch and I ramble on about random things. I feel like I should just hit the record button and let it run because most of our best conversations happen when we’re not recording. I find myself telling The Gersch to be quiet or to save his thoughts so that we can record them. We’ll get better at this as time goes on. I’m having fun putting these together, and I hope that you all are having fun listening to them.

You can find the podcast in iTunes by searching for Save It For The Breakdown. We are also on Podomatic and Radio Casbah.

Thank you all again for listening. Enjoy.

Welcome to Episode 3 of Save It For The Breakdown.

In this episode The Gersch and I sit down and talk with Drew Schwemer A.K.A. Drew X Blood A.K.A #KillMe. Drew is the vocalist for Cutting Losses as well as the Straight Edge band XOffedX. On top of being a hardcore vocalist, Drew is also an M.C., so we also spend a good chunk of time talking about hip-hop as well as hardcore.

As usual most of the best conversations and exchanges happened off mic, but after going back to listen to everything, I think that we covered a lot of ground. This was a fun conversation, and it ran a bit long. So long in fact that this will be a two-part episode. Episode 3 and Episode 3.1

As usual I want to thank everyone for listening, Radio Mike for hosting, and Drew X Blood for coming to hang out. Drew, you are welcome to be a recurring guest if you like.

…Idle No More!!!

Welcome to the second episode of SIFTB. We want to thank all of our friends for listening to the first episode. Now tell all of your friends to listen as well.

I had fun putting this one together. The Gersch and I dug up some old Austin, Texas hardcore from the early 1990s, and we also included some more recent Austin bands as well.

Until we raise the money, we will be hosting the podcast at Podmatic. You can also find the podcast in iTunes by searching for Save It For The Breakdown. If you do go to iTunes, please feel free to leave a review. We are working with Radio Mike to get things going on Radio Casbah. Hopefully the first two episodes with be up and running there soon.

Bands, labels, and musicians we’d love to play your music on our podcast. You don’t have to send us a whole record or anything. It can be just one song that you would want to get out to the people.

Thanks again for listening.

It’s A Good Life

Welcome to the first episode of Save It For the Breakdown.

This first episode was a little rough. We lost the audio for while recording because GarageBand decide to freeze up and shut down. It sucks because we had an awesome conversation going, and when we tried to get going again, the momentum that we started with was totally gone. That’s okay. We’ll try it again next week.

On a positive note we were able to play lots of good music, and I think that the audio quality of the conversation was pretty good since we only used one mic.

You can find the podcast here or on iTunes by searching for Save It For The Breakdown, and we can also be found at Radio Casbah.

Bands and musicians please get in touch. If you play punk/hardcore/metal or something that falls somewhere in within those genres get in touch. We’d love to play your music. Hopefully in the future we’ll be able to do interviews as well.

Speaking of getting in touch our email address is saveitforthebreakdown [at] gmail [dot] com. Send your love, hate, and other criticisms here.

Well enjoy the podcast. Thank you in advance for listening.
