Episode 17 - with Entomologist Jesse Greene

October 31, 2018

Jesse Greene is a pretty fascinating character.  He's an artist, an Entomologist, he's a collector and most importantly, he's a music lover.  Jesse is a dedicated fan, and a generous friend.  Today he brought some bugs over and we shared music, we shared some beer and we discussed how he helped make an impact on the Sacramento scene during his youth.

Aesop Dekker.  One of my favorite people on the planet.  I have toured through countless countries with this man, and shared countless beers and stories.  I have suffered with him, and I have rejoiced with him.  Aesop is a monster drummer, and a generous soul.  I was very excited to have him join me and geek out about obscure music. 

Closing track "Grave Mistake" by Extremity.

My daughter Ione Mira Walton.  What else can be said? She has suspect taste in music for sure, but she is probably cooler than you.  She appeared on the inside cover of Metal Manaics at the age of 3, she has appeared on records by Self Spiller, Snares of Sixes and even Nachtmystium.  Her middle name is a bastardization of Mirai from Sigh.  Yeah, she's cool, so listen to what she and I play for each other and witness how annoying we can be together.

Jori Apedaile is an accomplished songwriter, guitarist, sound engineer... the list goes on.  Right now he is on tour performing as Eneferens and I invited him to join me before his Portland date.  We bonded over growing up in Montana, lamented the clicky kick drum,  and shared some intriguing and odd music.

April 21, 2018

I have shared many important memories and even more important beers with Ryan Kirsch in many different places throughout North America and Europe.  Ryan has traveled thousands of miles to have the distinction of seeing Agalloch more times than anyone outside the band or crew.  So, naturally, he and I became friends.  On this episode Ryan and I share music and discuss French Black Metal and how horrible Chinese food in Estonia can be.

April 17, 2018

Russell Mikow not only shares a name with my dear departed Chihuahua Miko, yet regrettably spelled differently, he also runs Red Orchard Records out of Olympia, Washington.  Russ came down for record night and I invited him to stay a little longer to share some music with me and chat about Australian bands, Oi music and snare hits.

Episode 11 - Part 2 with guest Ramin Hosseinabad

Episode 11 - Part 2 with guest Ramin Hosseinabad

April 8, 2018

Speaking with Iranian born metal head Ramin is such a pleasure we couldn't stop at our usual time limit, so we just kept recording, and drinking.  Apparently Ramin's perspective is one that fascinates as his Part 1 is the most downloaded epsiode yet and has garnered this podcast a lot of attention.  This second, and last portion of our discussion, features a few more beers, and some barley wine, and yes of course, more metal.

Episode 10 - with guest Ashley Spungin (Insect Ark, Taurus)

March 10, 2018

Ashley Spungin is a very unique and undeniable force.   She has been a part of bands such as Purple Rhinestone Eagle, Taurus and Insect Ark.  Ashley makes noise generating oscillator pedals, she drums, and she is an all around bad ass.  Her album "Marrow Hymns" by Insect Ark is out now on Profound Lore Records, and she joined me for jokes and chats about music, touring and as always, we shared music.

Closing track "Sea Harps" by Insect Ark.

Ramin Hosseinabad was born in Iran.  Life for an Iranian metal head is far from easy.  Now, Ramin lives in Nebraska and is pursuing his Phd in Materials Engineering at UNL in Lincoln.  Ramin and I spoke far too long for one episode, so here is the first part of our discussion.  We shared music, talked about growing up in a country where metal music is illegal, and also shared a beer or two.

Episode 07 - with guest Casey C-P — King Gizzard “Polygondwanaland ” Special

January 12, 2018

My friend Casey C-P is the first return guest to "I Hate Music," simply because he infected me with an insatiable desire to consume everything King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have created.  In this episode, we try something a bit different.  We listen to King Gizzard's "Polygondwanaland" album in it's entirety and discuss why we love this band, and the repercussions of this love.
