This is Daryl Wilson, his interview is the beginning of our 4 episode series exploring punk positions of authority and care: a doctor, a police officer, a teacher, and a firefighter. Listen to Jughead and Daryl talk about evil, selfish/selfless intentions, pharmaceuticals, the social influence of punk rock, family, and much more! JUGHEAD: This is the first in a series of four interviews I have conducted and will release consecutively with Punks working in the fields of service to the common good. I have interviewed, a punk doctor, teacher, police officer, and firefighter, to learn and explore how they move about the world, what punk means to them, and what motivates them to help others. This episode focuses on Daryl Wilson lead singer for the band the Bollweevils. Daryl Wilson is also an MD, EMS medical director for the Edward system, working for Edward Hospital in Naperville Illinois. So with no further ado listen to me in my living room with Daryl Wilson.

In this second episode I talk to David Lyons. David is an LA Location Manager. He spends his day finding and managing locations for television and Feature Films. David has been at this job for 15 years and has worked with directors such as Wim Wenders, Noah Baumbach, Sean Penn, Terrence Malick, David Lynch, Mike Nichols, Oliver Stone and JJ Abrahms, to name a few. He also produced pilots for Fox and Adult Swim. David, may be known to many of you as the character Koko in one of the internet video pioneering serial comedy Yacht Rock.

I met David when he sang a Weasel song with me at a show hosted by Jonah Ray, in Chicago. I liked him immediately and presented him with a rare gift. It was an empty bottle of Weaselbrau, a brewed beer consisting of only one case of beer Screeching Weasel made in, oh shit, maybe like 1989. This gift blew his mind, and so he invited me to stay anytime with him in LA. And so he made these LA interviews possible.

David also has a podcast called "Beyond Yacht Rock", where he and other creators talk about Yacht Rock while defining new, made up genres such as "Disco Dips" where your favorite rock artists attempt to cash in by doing a disco song, or " Africa-dabra", a genre that showcases artists that get inspired by the plights of poor natives after viewing them from the back seat of an air conditioned Range Rover.  It's on Starburns Audio, or iTunes, or wherever people listen to that kind of thing now.

All things involving authentic yacht rock can be found at www.yachtrock.com

This second episode is with Jonah Ray, actor, comedian and writer. Jonah hails from Hawaii and ventured out alone to Los Angeles to make a name for himself. He considers himself a fan boy. He definitely knows more about punk rock than I do. He co-hosted the Nerdist Podcast, plus Comedy Central’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail. He has a hilarious parody show on Seeso called Hidden America with Jonah Ray. He has a podcast of his own called Jonah Raydio, and most important to my girlfriend, he is the current host on the well received reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on Netflix.

A more spontaneous version of Jughead's interviewing style, with friends in the entertainment field. This week featuring:

As a writer he is known for his work with Ben Stiller, Dana Carvey, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and the Mr. Show with David Cross and Bob Odenkirk… amongst others. He has also reached out into production with his company Starburns Industries with his writing friends and collaborators Dan Harmon, Joe Russo II, James Fino and Duke Jonhson  Starburns Industries birthed Dino’s very own Morel Orel and Frankenhole, along with Dan’s Rick and Morty, and Charlie Kaufman’s oscar nominated animated film Anomalisa.

This episode finally sees the light of day! I have been working on it for two years. I had dropped it at one point because we could not get the full band involved. But after an email thread with all the participating members it was decided to forge ahead. Sludgeworth was one my favorite bands to watch on stage during the early days of our Chicago scene (1989 - 92). So I am proud to release into the world this long awaited episode, 1995 Lookout Records compilation release of Losers of the Year including interviews with band members:

Dan (Vapid) Schafer (vocals)
Adam White (guitar)
Mike (Strat) Hootenstart (bass)
Brian (Vermin) McQuaid (drums)

For Episode 22 We will be introducing a sub format for some episodes from The Basement. To help fill the long periods of time between full band episodes we will now engage in a second endeavor called Jughead’s Basement Presents: Dueling Interviews. In these episodes the interviewer and interviewee will become one, and within a previously dictated amount of time these two will pose questions for each other to answer, hopefully resulting in a somewhat meaningful conversation. Each episode will contain two randomizing elements to lead the questioning in different directions. And each interviewer/interviewee will have two minutes at the end to some up. This podcast will NOT be highly edited, and will be more of a spontaneous exploration of art and music.

Episode 22 - Dueling Interviews With John Jughead & Grim Deeds
