Joel Gausten – From Punk to Ph.D. and Back Again: A Chat with Alfie Agnew of Professor and the Madman

Here is a sample of the interview Joel conducted with Alfie about Professor And The Madman. It really seems like this record is the one you’re pushing forward the most with the band. Why is now the time to really step up this project and focus a lot more attention on it? It’s kind of part of the whole evolution of the project. Sean and I hooked back up after a long time. We were in D.I. together; he and I overlapped [in the band] in the early ‘90s and…

Joel Gausten – A Vessel of God: H.R. on Maturity, “Good Music” and the Future of the Bad Brains

Here is a sample of Joel’s interview with H.R. Of course, there are plenty of other audio/video documents of H.R.’s various legend-earning performances at CBGB’s, both on his own and with the Bad Brains. Not surprisingly, he still holds the solely missed venue in high esteem. “CBGB’s offered opportunities for young groups and alternative groups. Hilly Krystal had a lot to do with that while he was the manager of the place. He gave the Bad Brains a chance to play and be heard by professionals.” Live At CBGB’s ’84…

Joel Gausten – LIVE REVIEW – The Original Misfits/Alkaline Trio/Discharge: The Forum, 12/30/17

Here is a sample of the show review posted by Joel: While inner turmoil has been a cornerstone of The Misfits’ existence from the very beginning, there were no signs of inter-personal strife on stage at the Forum. From the opening drum blast of “Death Comes Ripping” to the final notes of “We Are 138,” The Misfits’ nearly 30-song set delivered exactly what 17,000-plus people filled every seat in the house to hear and witness. Most significantly, it appeared that these longtime adversaries were actually enjoying themselves onstage. (The fist…
