That’s FIVE weeks since our last episode! That’s a first. So far, in almost two years doing SATAN MADE ME DO IT, we’ve skipped one week just once, on New Year’s Eve. We’ve been quite busy, though. First with our first SATAN MADE ME DO IT curated gig at Music Box with the supremely cool BAD GUYS. We can’t lie to you: it’s true; we’ve felt some kind of “post-event blues”. We just wanted to jump on stage and do it again. Then reality crashed in. Work to do, 9-to-5 jobs. A mess.

So, yeah, we’re late and we apologize for not providing you your biweekly dose of sonic prozac (WordPress tell us that Monday morning is your favorite time to pay us a visit, so we guess it’s a privilege to be your first source of energizing for the working week).

But guess what? We come with a vengeance. This episode is out there in terms of sheer aggression, speed and raw power. And we’re featuring a lot of fresh, 2015 stuff. So let’s just lock horns and be pals again. PLAY IT LOUD!

Episode 32 – All I Wanted Was a Pepsi

Episode 32 – All I Wanted Was a Pepsi (right click to download)

We got inspiration for this episode after reading a great Greg Anderson (from Southern Lord) interview about his hardcore roots in Seattle. Initially we thought about repeating a hardcore drenched episode, just like we did on “Episode 25 – Nothing Ever Changes”, but as Greg’s interview was about how different the Seattle scene was compared to the rest of the West Coast, soon our thoughts drifted to the roots of crossover thrash, particularly the LA of the early 80s. Back then, the punks and skaters didn’t see eye to eye with metalheads, but bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Cryptic Slaughter, Excel or DRI helped change that. Soon, you started seeing punks and skaters turning up at Slayer and Metallica shows, while metal bands started to play faster and harder. So basically this episode is part early crossover thrash and part modern crossover outfits, mostly released (or re-released!) by Southern.

Enjoy and kick it in the genitals!
