popes 3


What's up and welcome to the latest edition of Rocket Fuel! On

this episode I play new tunes from Bayside, Red City Radio,

Rival Schools, Buffalo Tom and many more. 


I also talk with Josh Caterer, singer/guitarist of the seminal punk 

band Smoking Popes and play the podcast premiere of

a track from the upcoming album from the killer band

All Eyes West.


I also share my thoughts on the debut full-length from the

Tallahassee, Florida band Only Thieves.


We are also having a contest where you can win a sweet

Smoking Popes prize pack, courtesy of the band and

Asian Man Records.


One lucky winner will receive:


A CD copy of the band's new album This is Only a Test

++ By playing Screeching Weasel on the show, I am by no means supporting or condoning the deplorable actions of Ben Weasel during the band's performace at SXSW.  Violence against women is WRONG.  I believe that the efforts by the other members of the band (who have since resigned from the band due to Ben's actions) on this record should not be ignored by the actions of one person.  That is why I play "Totem Pole" on this episode.  Thanks for understanding.
