Damian Abraham has been many things... the singer of a critically acclaimed band, a failed VJ and food network host, one of the minds behind TV's "The Wrestlers", parent of 3... and undeniably, a punk music obsessive.

Each week, he sits down and chats with an interesting person from various walks of life to find out how their world was influenced and changed by the discovery of a novelty genre that supposedly died out in 1978... PUNK!

When the part was discussed about how the punks and others in the DC underground scene stood up to and ran the racist skinheads and all of their bullshit violence out of town, one of you questioned if this had happened anywhere else. And yes it did the late 80s- mid 90s Portland, OR underground/punk scene. The racist skinheads had made going to shows not fun and, for many, a dangerous experience. There is a podcast about the problems the Portland music scene had with white supremacists and the violence and how they battled it and eventually got rid of the violence and racsim. TOAP is the best podcast going!! I'm a music (particularly punk rock) nerd so this podcast is so interesting and cool !!! KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK, DAMIEN!!!

i read in the book that fat mikes dad was a traveling shoe salesman and i assume that's where "so long and thanks for all the shoes" even though mike says something about douglas adams in this episode...prolly a lot easier than explaining a complex father son relationship

When did "sonic" become a noun, or is that just a Damien thing?

Excellent interview! Loved him mentioning the Ebullition/HeartAttack scene. Very much remember that. The reaction of jock hardcore people in the states on their Snapcase tour was really interesting.
