Music On Your Own Terms 125 - Martin Atkins - The Secret To Success Is Unneutered Zombie Kittens

It is with great pleasure that I present my interview with the one and only Martin Atkins, drummer for Public Image Limited, Killing Joke, Ministry, his own band Pigface, entrepreneur, college lecturer, author, and international speaker. Martin talks about his journey, from his dad getting him a drum kit and setting him up with gigs, the early punk scene and joining PIL, to noticing the mismanagement of the bands, he was in and turning their finances around through merch. We learn about how Martin got into teaching students through his experiences with touring and the music business, writing books based on those classes, how that led to talking at music festivals, and the impetus of turning the collections of memorabilia from the past 40 plus years into a museum. We also find out how Ivar Bjornson, guitarist for the Norwegian band Enslaved, taught Martin the importance of saying YES, to everything.

Music On Your Own Terms 117 - John Otway - Rock And Roll's Greatest Failure (A Pioneer Of Crowdfunding)

Joining me this episode is the absolute legend John Otway! John has had a career in music spanning 50 years, playing to 20,000 people in his home town of Aylesbury, and appearing on The Old Grey Whistle Test with Bob Harris, Top Of The Pops and other notable UK TV shows. John talks about his history of attempting to recreate the hit he had in the 70s, utilizing his extremely loyal fan-base as a true pioneer of crowdfunding. We hear about his on stage antics, such as somersaulting off of ladders, and the infamous double neck guitar that flaps! It's an absolute privilege to be able to interview John which is why I am releasing it on my birthday.

Music On Your Own Terms 068 “Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor”

July 27, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 068 - Joe Messina – Politics, Porpoises, and Phallic Humor

In this episode, we learn about the history of Boston based guitarist, comedian, podcaster, activist and teacher, Joe Messina. From growing up in a musical family and not wanting to follow the family business, to discovering comedy and wanting to become an aspiring writer, he was then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Despite almost quitting music altogether, Joe found himself embracing music once again, teaches guitar and other instruments, and is about to release his new album Rageonomics. Joe also hosts a podcast that aims to provide a roadmap for those who feel frustrated with the slow and ineffective voting system, and want to do more in the way of direct action outside of sharing posts and signing petitions.

If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. - Isaac Newton

March 16, 2020

Music On Your Own Terms 043 - Shawn Patrick Thomas Daley/The Mohawk Studio & HALO Live

Based in Sandusky, Ohio, The Mohawk Studio is a 6000 square foot, 172 year old church building, that hosts not only a full service recording studio and artist accommodations, but also a live venue with a full bar. I talk to owner, operator and producer Shawn Daley, who is also the bass player for the bands The Casket Company and Half Knocked Out. We talk about his history, how the studio and venue got started and what drives his passion for music. In addition, we discuss the steps he's taking to make live concerts accessible to the world via streaming during the current Corona virus situation, and how that will help to replace band's income lost from the cancellation of most live music for the foreseeable future.

Music On Your Own Terms Episode 39 - Chase The Comet

Episode 39 features Nika Comet, one half of Chase The Comet, an LA-based rock/metal duo that made a brave jump to move from their home of Moscow, Russia, to follow the American dream of hustle and entrepreneurship to bring their music to the world. Nika talks us through growing up in a theatrical family, being in bands in high school, and working as session musicians. She tells us the challenges of finding band members with the same goals and vision, why being a duo is the best situation right now, and also she shares her experiences with mental health. This interview is a great insight into an upcoming band with great songs, and illustrates the importance of sacrifice and the drive to see your ultimate vision through.
