This artist on artist interview via Invisible Oranges is one that I've been so excited for everyone to read. Take a journey with me and my old pal, Nate Newton of Converge, Old Man Gloom, Cave In, Jesuit, DOOMRIDERS etc... as we reminisce on 90's hardcore, what it means to come from the DIY scene and how everything about it still influences the way we interact with the world. ...

Sure, we could interview artists… or we could have them interview each other. The multi-talented metal, hardcore, and country artist Austin Lucas talks to Converge bassist Nate Newton about their hi...
I am grateful to be a performer and nominee at this year's @theamauk awards. Although the event may be virtual and it's sad not to be together in person, I am honored to find myself performing among such legends as @marygauthier @steveearle @gillianwelchofficial @davidrawlingsmusic @courtneymarieandrews @jasonisbell @elviscostello @americanaquarium @ladynadeuk @lucinda_williams @emilybarkerhalo @charleycrockett @robertvincentmusic and @lucinda_williams
I understand and agree with the sentiment but I feel it should be pointed out that the DC police had little or nothing to do with this failure. It's all on the Federal Capitol police who are separate from the police of Washington, DC.
I don't blame the police for the recent brouhaha. I think the problem was that NOBODY expected thousands and thousands of mindless bozos showing up and acting like a bunch of idiots!
We’ve kept them out at DC house parties!
Ha! Nothing was better than Fugazi stopping their show several years ago to have several of those “fine people” escorted out.
That's because the cops were IN the crowd.
We GenXers definitely did this in the 80s
So true ❤️
WORKING CLASS HISTORY PODCAST on ARA . Check it out. A glorious and tragic tale. So many lessons to be learned.
This all day
Omg, so true!!
A call was put out for back up and the National Guard. The request for help was met by a firm refusal to comply. The Pentagon said that it would not look good. This was the message & actions from the Whitehouse. It was orchestrated from the inside. I've been reading and watching everything I can to get the big picture as its happening. Details of the Capital siege are being exposed everyday and arrests are being made.
Now you are talking!! 👍🏻
Daniel Schex ya famous
💯 💯 💯
The crows nest memories with you and Anna Elizabeth Sárosi 😂
Dearest Bloomington, IN. It's time to start acting like the progressive beacon of light that you constantly try to convince everyone that you are! For Godsake, evicting a homeless encampment during any moment in time is a disgusting look but during a public health crisis and an impending arctic winter storm? Time to grow some humanity! ...

I'm glad to hear and see you're in an all around happier place.
Awesome change. Congrats.
I have a doubt. Your voice has change? A tone or something like that? I´m not an expert but I imagine.... new body, something has to change
You do look amazing.,, 💜.
I need to give my head a shake, to get rid of the bit I still need to shift that I gained during this 'thing'. ... Tho 12lbs is better than the42lbs i started with.. 😊
You and me both! I feel like we have both kind of been reborn in a way over the last several years. You help keep my head straight and spirits up while I continue to achieve my physical rehab goals.
This song has some positivity about our world today.
You look fabulous. Your music is pretty good too. 🙂
Yay excellent. 30kg gone from me in Lockdown
Looking great Austin. One must have personal challenges, goals and victories and it’s obvious you overcame a personal challenge. From a fans perspective, I’ve been following you for years and always loved your music and admired your grueling work ethic. Body type never entered the equation. The artist always overwhelmingly shined through. Keep up the good work and never let the music take a back seat.
I’ll never forget when I first saw photos of Skinny Austin. Had to do some googling to confirm this was the same artist who made Somebody Loves You. Congrats on the weight loss!
You should come back to the dog at the tuckerbox to show him! 😂
It’s something to watch that journey too my friend!
Makes my heart happy
Gotta pm me on how you did it. I did it once a few years back but when we had kids 🤦♂️. Looking good dude
I’d like to know how you did this? It’s a really big turnaround.
Last year at Christmas there was a 'sounds of the seventies' TV show on with live performances from bands of the time. Amen Corner were the featured band and my dad got absolutely irate. When he calmed down he explained that they'd stolen his microphones after a gig where his band had opened for them. Nearly fifty years later and I reckon he'd still try to fight them if he saw them.
As a fellow Harmony School, Bloomington son of a hippy, I can relate. Your mom is special, though.
My friend Stephen’s dad almost ran over Tom Petty, then took Tom to the liquor store, got way drunk together and caused Tom to be late to the concert he was performing at 😃😂👍
My moms told me stories of showing The Who around during their first us tour in St.Louis & Iggy pop crashed at my dads back in the day
My parents are totally as cool as your parents.
My Mom(who really does have it goin on) went to the 1958 Newport Folk Fest. She plays African hand drums and uses garage band. She's 80. Thanks for giving me another reason to brag on her.
Wait a minute... she never told ME that story! But she did used to hang at some of the cool NYC clubs like Max's Kansas City back in the sixties.
My mom was a candy striper when Bob Dylan got in his motorcycle accident.
My dad used to put on festivals in Florida in the 70s and has some wild stories. One time the Allman Brothers opened for him which is always a favorite of his to tell. Along with the fact that Ted Nugent hates my dad because my dad slept with his girlfriend at the time.😅
My dad played guitar and mandolin in a band in the 50’s called The Sheridan Slickers. They would often play at the movie theater between movies. He also drove from Arkansas to Oregon as soon as he got his license and became a lumberjack. At one point he owned a monkey.
My mom and dad are definitely not cool, but their first date was to see the Staples Singers, 10 Years After, and Janis Joplin at the Fillmore East.
My mom has some doozies too. From dating an Olympian to attending the Daytona 500, Kentucky Derby and Notre Dame football games all while in college to also being the women’s bowling champion at her university in the late 60’s. I’m telling ya! Her life was so much more fun before she had kids! 😂
My parents are def not cool but it was a distant relative of mine who was in the car wreck that killed James Dean.
My father parachuted from a C47 over Holland in 1944 and fought the 9th and 10th SS Panzer Divisions, armed with a rifle, aged 17. He suffered a minor skull fracture on the jump but continued to fight until his division were evacuated, incurring further wounds. He was taken prisoner, but in April 1945 he and some other prisoners escaped from Stalag XIB by stealing a German staff car, and driving back to the advancing American lines.
Al Pacino played my dad in a film.... Based on John Lennon sending him a letter.
I aint ever gonna be that cool
If they were alive I think you'd have a run for your $$$
My Grandfather was a bankrobber. Blew up banks. Got caught. Never gave up the rest of the gang. Did 15 years. When he got out there was a house waiting for him all paid off.
My dad casually dropped into conversation once that he’d seen Bob Dylan in a coffee shop in Hollywood in the 60s. He said he didn’t really think much of him, although he’d heard he’d been quite successful. 😂
Here’s one: Cheryl Ladd babysat me in exchange for homemade tacos.
My mum also chased the Bay City Rollers around the BBC studios
My Mum and Dad meet Johnny Cash twice...
We need to heat more about your mom & Janis!!! 😍
My Mother is a Retrumplican, so yeah that pretty much sums it up. (shrugs)
Here’s my mum with Robert Plant the day he came to our pub - long time again now
Trump is a simpleton, he deserves all that is coming for him... plain and “simple”..
Can we please stop Fox News from broadcasting as well? They know the truth but are monetizing lies, and it’s deadly.
I’ll never get tired of seeing this post.
Freedom of speech is a great liberty
But its a Liberty that has responsibility attached. If you don’t use your liberty wisely it is taken away
That’s why we send people to jail
Oh there’s a thought....
The trappings of power begin to fall away... now if just make sure he is nowhere near any big buttons we can rest easy...
Censoring hate speech and incitement to violence is not wrong. Well done Twitter.
Best thing I have read from him in the past 4 years!
