In just a few but before we go to commercials I wanted to play some peg to death. This is say an all female rock project and the only reason I mention is all female not trying to like take them into this thing. Yes peg death peg get a but the the reason is because I'd I felt like that was kind of. It feels like kind of the creation of late this community of awesome female rock musicians is what this project seems like it is. Yeah I don't know whether that was like the at the intent around it or not but I mean that's that's Katie from Brothers us on a clock is the bass player there and she grabbed. Pam sterner and who is and postmortem and costs of plays is the touring guitar player for the Brothers and Posey and Dana from Helmsley and at least among go from he did he use Sox scored. And yet to. Great record really really impressed with him I love distract them about it. All right and contacted by peg to death if you have anything you wanna hear or is what talks trash to a six fortune one rock or he can Texas 77. 999 it's lot of local. On the rock. Look Kevin tears were. AI SW home. Back here on loud and local dig in that chill music because certainly the music that we had carried here by Jane's is everything but shields brighten the. He's brought the heavy rocket that's all. You can really hear coming from this playlist because it is all about the Seattle passive aggressive which is a funny name for a for a magazine that is. Everything but he's just straight aggressive music man. So how did you come up with that name Indy is that kind of a gig on them like northwest and being seen as a as if I'm assuming it is. I mean Vegas to get it worked out worked out that way I got this I got that idea from the name from out of at a number of based Coca through like. Play a little FaceBook argument that we had like a long time ago and in his joking around it's a dominant start is gene called the Seattle passive aggressive and and Canada stuck from them so that's a that's and we have the name okay thanks super fan. Yeah everyone's got to thinking in and he he's keeping it real for the seen his bush like every show. Ever and always has a smile on his face a super fan if you listen and you rule. So you have been doing this for five years now and going on six and. I got a nasty man it's. Not it's not a very positive place for for her French magazines for his jeans it's like there's they're dying off left and right that you remain and I'm just asking like. What would keep should go in windows things the roof and on the line I mean I honestly I didn't got my major in college in print journalism. And it's funny that I did that like Wright is all the newspapers were shutting down. Like what keeps you going with Peyton do you see yourself ever. Just going 100% online. I think that we when we started acting did the the Dana we did was we had. Stuff that was somewhat timeless imprint scene so it could kind of you know there is no shelf life on a piece of paper it you know just sit there and you know he picked it up he would find out factual information about these bans was ever dreamed yes so I mean and we have a website that. You know we've is is much more current with you know it you know record reviews and things like that that are you know doesn't buy it at house at a self lifestyle. Yeah I mean. There's there's always going to be people that one of these genes and there's always going to be in niche market for people that are in his genes. And you know I we're gonna ever gonna local record store nice dock my team at the record store IT people pick it up all the times people don't pick up all the local weeklies you know. I'm prey is still active but you know you have to have some kind of mixture of the both you know website and print if you are going to stay. Above water. Share and you know before this did you actually did you wrote articles for a bunch of different on magazines growing up like oh what. What kind of inspired you to do Delaware some of the first things that you really picked up and media's teenager or in your formative years that meet you wanna write popular rock. Writer I mean isn't as a child of you know probably you know porn in the late so I grew up with. Reading metal magazines like metal heads and operators and all that stuff and that's how you found out about music in yet. He wrote code you know. Answered taking grocery shopping and you spend you know thirty minutes of of them grocery shopping reading operator absolutely legend stuff so. That I mean I was like. Reading that kind of stuff and ruined stone was you know like there's tons of classic writers that classic to her you know rock journalist I guess you could say that it. Always loved to read but Lester Bangs yeah exactly people like that.

Welcome on them well that's awesome that you're still keeping it alive and know for a while you're there for Seattle weekly is that's the whole thing. Now I'd I haven't really done a lot of stuff for the weekly lately but I think it's still an active. You know art it's still considered inherited Ryder for if you're on the email list and her active and I think they got rid of the emails. OK well maybe maybe maybe just got rid of me well and who knows if you're finding out right now. In a way we have James Ballinger here he is. A purveyor of fine taste in in in the northwest music scene and he also does the Seattle passive aggressive scene if you've ever seen that around picking up decent read and learn about the scene we got to be ends back to back right now into orphans lost. In it and called areas that we've mentioned before tell me a little about what we're about to hear James. Paris'. To this particular track is just you know. Rates on tempo like to slow like grind. Too heavy it like to turning. Melodic metal and so I think you want but. And in endurance losses as a grind and they're going to be plain north swifter fest with Ayers. They convert on floss is playing the Friday that Friday June 16 is when there and play and this is warm body target. From the record that she's your way to came out last November awesome man endorphins lost an errors as chosen by Jay's Ballinger of the Seattle passive aggressive flat local. On the Iraq it's.

Appeared in a month ago go but yet there from Portland and that is their first record called the casuals and like it you know last year and it wouldn't you know. It step Austin and on the faith. So I get askew like as far as bands that you want to a feature in the Seattle passive aggressive do you find out about bands to go to shows or do you. You scour the Internet for new to local news anchor. This stuff come across her to ask her how does that normally happen I'm we have. A roster or revolving roster of writers all the time never contribute to losing I think there's. X seven period of us now with so. You know a lot of a lot of the content of this gene comes from them so. They donate their time and it's amazing so I find out about a lot of new stuff from them. And just you know from going to shows sometimes are rules are the in a matter you'll see some somebody talking about something on. On you know FaceBook or something new we'll check him out and kind of get into it or not so. But yeah I get that most of most of our continents and of brought up by the writers make these guys if you if that's correct or donating your time. It's got to help you worker Sowers well I mean I mean it it does there are there's tons of new music there you wouldn't believe the amount of music there I wouldn't believe its record source still exist actually unite here that everything that. W hear it again I'm just plan to support your local record store support locals jeans in support your local scene so how can we you know find out about. More about work we follow you on the Internet architecture plugs into if you have any shouts yes and you can follow us on. I mean against Graham because both on the Twitter at all but at the Seattle PA. That I could follow us on Twitter and span the website says the Seattle PGA com.

A playlist not only do you bring a bunch of good songs but you also brought notes about all of these songs so would help it's helpful for me. If I'm just looking down and trying to find out a little bit about this you know I host the show but there's so much good music out there that it's hard to keep up sometimes. I appreciate you coming in with this and we're gonna go into a yacht throwback from 1998. You mention here that this is the best band ever.

At stake and mean so to me like burning which is one of the best Seattle and Everett.
