Today’s Cold Ones & Rolled Ones with Ami Lawless is chock full of punk & metal goodness! Best tune in 6pm-8pm for your chance to win tickets to SUBHUMANS and TOTAL CHAOS at The Oakland Metro this Friday and Savannah metal-freaks KYLESA at Slims this Saturday. huge thanks to the fine folks at The Oakland Metro and Slims/Great American Music Hall for providing tickets.
As if the ticket giveaways aren’t enough, Dick Lucas from UK anarcho-punk legends SUBHUMANS will be chatting us up about punk and the meaning of life. It’s almost unfathomable that the SUBHUMANS first EP “Demolition War” was releases in 1981 and their first album “The Day The Country Died” came out thirty years ago this year! Not many punk bands have kept it going this long and have stayed as relevant as the SUBHUMANS have. This band did take some years off between 1985-1998, with only a one off reunion gig during this period, however when they came back they became quite the touring entity. Making the jump across the pond to North America regularly playing sold out clubs and DIY venues. Dick also fronts the dancy political ska-punk band CITIZEN FISH, his brand of well thought out socio-political and witty lyrics definitely makes him stand out in the crowd of punk.
Rob Chaos of TOTAL CHAOS will also be calling in from the road and giving away the secret on how to live your life in TOTAL CHAOS. TOTAL CHAOS started shaking up the punk scene in Pomona CA back in 1989 and were the political punks that actually got things done in their local punk community. Rob was a part of Food Not Bombs, helped open the Los Angeles Anarchist Center and helped bring attention to The Big Mountain Indian Reservation. Rob is also a co-founder of S.O.S. Records and was the owner of The Showcase Theatre in Corona; which was a mainstay venue from 1993-2008, hosting thousands of bands over the years.
But wait, there’s more; in the first hour our home-grrrl Laura Pleasants (vo-kills and guitar) of dark psych-metal band KYLESA will be on the show talking about all things KYLESA and the true meaning of “the dirty south”. Laura has also generously given us a couple brand new KYLESA tracks to premier on the show and we’ll also play some of their classic oldies. Don’t forget KYLESA will be decimating Slims this coming Saturday May 25th.
This is going to be one helluva show today! Be sure to tune in at radiovalencia.fm from 6:00pm-8:00pm today Thursday May 23, 2013, tune in for the music and free stuff, stay for the chaos!
