#218: The Methadones

It’s been 15 years since The Methadones released their beloved pop punk classic album, This Won’t Hurt. To celebrate, Red Scare Industries has released the record on vinyl for the first time. This past June, I was able to bring Connie’s Pizza to Dan, Pete, Simon, and Mike before their performance at T1 Fest at Reggies in Chicago. We had a blast talking the re-release of This Won’t Hurt and whether their is a difference between melodic punk and pop punk. Shoutout to Katie Hovland for setting up the conversation!

Tj Horansky of Chicago’s Sleep On It, is reintroducing himself to the world as indie/emo artist, OSLO. He just released his debut album, Great Places, under the OSLO name last week. TJ was kind of enough to invite me into his home to have some Rosati’s Pizza and talk about the new record.
