Razorcake Podcast #48: With Daryl Gussin

If you scan my playlist over you’ll see that I played a song from both sides of the Brokedowns / Sass Dragons split. This record is one hell of a scorcher. Both bands have taken their relative styles and molded them into a beast of epic proportions. With a little less imagination both of these bands could have been written off as copy-cats, but because of their obvious love for playing punk rock and doing things their own way, they’ve written some amazing songs. I’ve never heard anything I didn’t like by these bands, and all six of the songs that they contributed to this 7” are probably the gnarlyest stuff I’ve heard by them yet. The hardest part of putting together this podcast was the fact that I could only play one of their songs.
