Ciaran setting up for a soldout show @ the Constellation Room in Cali
I had the privilege of reconnecting with my boy Ciaran O’Donnell of “the Front Bottoms” recently. Ciaran and I used to play in a band called “Morning…” back in college. Ciaran is currently touring the nation with The Front Bottoms, who have received rave reviews from Vice, Alternative Press, and a bunch of other reputable publications.
They debuted their newest video on SPIN magazine, yes, Spin fucking Magazine. When I recently heard from Ciaran he was at a Waffle House in Alabama, next he was out somewhere in Atlanta, Georgia. In this interview I wanted to touch on topics which my peers and I always talk about, tour-life and living with music as a primary income.

Last weekend I had the chance to speak with a dear friend and fellow Toms River resident Mr. Andrew McNicholas of SENIUM. SENIUM are rightfully coined the last grunge band on Earth…or at least the last one worth listening to. The band has seen some line-up changes, but has been going strong since 2010.

North Jersey hardcore quartet Hell Mary have a sick new EP out cleverly titled “DRIFTER” . This EP is the newest contribution to Jersey music from speakerkicker frequent and co-conspirator Paul Alan. Paul also plays in Atlas, and was the singer of the late great – “Young American Artists” . He is also the founder of NJ labelBedside Manner when he has a minute.
