Thanks for sharing those links! You're right, another must listen for the die-hard OLP fan. Finally some insight from Jeremy on why he left. Also good to hear that he at least still keeps in contact with everyone, except Raine.

First single is Stop Making Stupid People Famous. While I expected this, wish they were more original in what to release first. Feel like this song is old and has been heard so many times. But maybe that’s just fan syndrome.

Probably so. In the die hard community it's aged a bit, but there is no full release of it that has been put out. There was a lengthy clip played on an interview with Raine, but not a full song. On top of that, there are more people out there that have never heard it than those that have. If it gets them some radio, then it's a smart decision. I think some people in the community are building this album up in their minds to be just like SM 1. It won't be.

I thought that both interviews were really wonderful. Liked Jeremy's a bit more. It was nice to hear some new insight about the old era specifically. I became a fan in about 2010. So insight about the first peak of popularity is pretty gold to my ears.

I'd love to hear Mike's insight on some more specific songs. Being the guitar player he could really speak to some things and I'd watch that for 2.5 hours easy.

“Stop making stupid people famous” is out next Friday and features Pussy Riot. Interesting.

The Pussy Riot news is definitely a surprise. Between this and Mike showing up on a song, the album could have a bunch of cameos. Interesting indeed and definitely a new direction.

Fair warning, this is about 2.5 hours long. However, it is a great abridged version of Mike's life and his times with OLP, Fair Ground, Crash Karma, as well as his endeavors at Pocket Studios, and his current role in mixing live recordings.

Thanks for sharing this, Matt. This was an exceptional interview.

I found it really interesting to hear Mike talk about how Arnold Lanni pushed the band members to focus on the qualities that made them unique. You can definitely see the fruits of this from Clumsy to SM. It also helps to explain the course-correction that occurred with Bob. It just reinforces how Bob and Arnold were polar opposites as far being producers went.

Jeremy's take on working with Arnold is very much in the other direction, haha. From Jeremy's interview, my take away on Arnold was that he was too involved, which Jeremy didn't seem to like. But it also sounded like he pushed Jeremy into finding his own style when his playing sounded like other people. I guess it's like when you hate the one boss everybody else likes, haha.
