Just a reminder to all bands and industry folk - it's the beginning of December and we're continuing to build up our "end of the year" database, as we've done each year, and we want your lists! If you're in a band, work for a label, or are involved in the industry - we want to feature your favorite albums of the year in our end of the year brouhaha. We've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists here and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (ie: if you're in a band - is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?). We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.

Please note: This feature is for industry related...

Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms) offers some advice for would-be interviewers.
From the BlogSo, here’s the worst possible interview questions that you can be asked, in no particular order: “What does your band sound like, for those people out there who haven’t heard you?” “Who are your influences?” “What does your band name mean?” and finally, my personal least favorite “What’s the craziest thing that’s ever happened to you on tour?” Let’s go through these one by one and discuss why they’re questions that suck.

John Feldmann went to Australia alone due to a rift between Goldfinger members. Stand-ins were Mike Herrera of MxPx, Aaron Barrett of Reel Big Fish and Aaron Stern of DRUGS/Matchbook Romance.
From the InterviewIt's been a challenge, being in a band has always been challenging and the guys and me have are at a bit of an inpass right now, and this tour well I really wanted to come – clearly reel big fish and goldfinger have a long history together. I signed reel big fish to mojo records in 1996, maybe the end of 1995 and RBF even played at my wedding and when I found out about this tour I was really excited to do it and we couldn’t resolve our issues before this tour so I clearly...
