No more are the days of bike, skateboard, Dan Glenzig, and art related anecdotes that meander and go nowhere. Starting last week, All Hail The Black Market is now 100% exclusively focused on hard hitting band interviews.
Well, I’m maintaining that head of steam this week when I asked The Schizophrenics‘ frontman Pat Beers an equally hard-hitting query;
All Hail The Black Market: Did you take gymnastics when you were young?
If you’ve not seen the band in question, I strongly encourage it for the well-being of both your heart and soul;

Now, as I close out today’s post, I would like to present you the very newest episode of Revolting 78, in which we have a discussion with the enigmatic Amanda K. Bryan;
It’s been a fun thing bringing in the occasional special guest host, and I hope that folks who tune in enjoy our efforts.
