Pop-Punk & Pizza #115: Lou & Pete Koller – Sick Of It All

When it comes to American hardcore punk rock, Sick Of It All, are considered legends of the genre. The new book, “The Blood and The Sweat”, tells the story of founding members and brothers, Lou and Pete Koller. I’ve really enjoyed reading this book so far.

Pop-Punk & Pizza #114: Fluorescents

Covid-19 has pretty much stopped live music dead in it’s tracks for the most part. However, it hasn’t stopped most bands from releasing new music. Thank God for that, right? In my opinion, Chicago has one of the best pop-punk scenes in the country, maybe even the world. One of the newer bands in the […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #109: Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic

One of my favorite bands to come out of the pop punk scene in the last five years is, Stand Atlantic. Nothing quite beats their crunchy guitar hooks, catchy honest lyrics, and Bonnie Fraser’s incredibly versatile vocals. On this episode, Bonnie and I discuss their latest album, “Pink Elephant”, and she answers a few fan […]

Pop-Punk & Pizza #107: Vinnie Fiorello

I’ve been a fan of Less Than Jake since I was about eight or nine years old. Like many of us, they were one of the first ska punk bands that I ever heard. As I got older, I learned that not only was Vinnie Fiorello the drummer of the band, he was the main […]
