Thrash of the Titans 2 Pub Crawl Interviews

One month away from the battle, the Titans contestants lay it all on the line

TPStank • Sunday, September 5, 2010 • 4:44 PM

Welcome to the end of Summer 2010. The heat has been relentless for what seems like 95% of the year, and it always appears that there's no end to it in sight. But we've survived till September, and noone's been feeling the heat more than our 26 contestants as they reach the home stretch of AZPunk's Thrash of the Titans 2 battle at Hollywood Alley on Saturday September 25th.

Last month, I met up with a bunch of our Titan participants at the Q & Brew in Tempe for a pseudo pub crawl podcast (editor's note: this is actually podcast #3. #2 with Said Gun had to be postponed due to technical difficulties). With a month already down the drain at this time, I wanted to see how everyone was getting along, or if anyone had killed each other yet. Everyone seemed to keep with their aura of suspense, clamming up when asked about their band's style and what they were going to be bringing to the battle. Armed with my trusty new Droid X, I did manage to get some cool pictures, and a couple musicians to chat a bit. Just a friendly family warning, these interviews are all raw audio made from a guy who with otherwise pushing the record button, has no idea what he's doing.

 

Sarcactus

Sarcactus, our first interview, comprises a collection of Rock N' Roll riffs from guitarist Kelly Carcinogen, and fast punk rhythms from 80*D duo Steve Morales and Jim "Fury" Hesterman. Headlining Sarcactus is newcomer Matt Felix who explains a little about his new musical surroundings, while Kelly so eloquently explains their approach to music by defecating on the stage.

Hobophobes

Our next interview was with the Hobophobes, a motley crew of musicians made up of Yami from Parkway Wretch, newcomers Lise Johnson and Josh Abromovitz, and an L.A. transplant named Trevor Fairbanks. Within the first month of practice, these guys survived a car accident, a guitar player re-assignment and a torn thumb ligament. It's a safe bet that these guys are the underdogs of the group, and if history has taught us anything, it's to never bet against the underdog.

Double-Fisted Cunt Punch

Next up was the lonely interview with the only guy from Double-Fisted Cunt Punch who showed up to the podcast, guitarist Kolby Waters from West End Crooks origin. With much confidence and zero band to back him up, Kolby told us a little bit about what kind of a Cunt Punch we're gonna see on the 25th.

Blue Waffle Anarchy

When Blue Waffle Anarchy made their way towards the recording device, things started to get a more little homoerotic. Not sure exactly how that happened, but I suppose you could probably blame it on my stellar journalistic interviewing abilities. Regardless, finally, I was able to get an interview with a T2 band in it's entirety. Talia (Beatnik Bombers), Josh, Adam (The Meat Department) and Beau (Zombeast) were all there to talk about their first month of practice, and something about metaphorically murdering everyone in attendance.

The Staff Infection

The Staff Infection was 3/4 in attendance to the podcast party, but were in full preparation to reverse the interview on the interviewer and drill me about my past experience with Titans 1. After about 15 seconds of complete boring commentary from me, we discussed some of my organizational shortcomings and a complete lack of interest from the rest of the local punk community. But hey, it's Phoenix. What else is new? All in all they didn't really talk about their band too much. Probably a strategy. It's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

As for our 6th band, Hand-Dick Coordination, we have no clue what's up with them. They were a no-show. Hopefully this elusive crew has something awesome to bring to the competition on the 25th. So far, we haven't heard a peep from these kids, and the showtime clock is ticking! The lineup is set, nerves are running high, and we're 20 days away! Mark your calendars for September 25, because AZPunk's Thrash of the Titans 2 battle will tear down the walls of Hollywood Alley!
