Very recently, Dave Emmerson from Dystopian Futures was interviewed by The Antidote. He had some great insight for his current band. Dave also talks about the weaknesses of social media, rampant narcissism, and sci-fi. Shoot, I didn’t even know he was a fan of Dr. Strangelove. Hahaha! I thought this was a great interview and you should check it out.
Don’t forget that Dystopian Futures’s Low Arts EP comes out on 6/11/18 on http://zaprecords.bandcamp.com.
Check out the Fear EP: https://zaprecords.bandcamp.com/album/zap-033-fear-cs
Don’t forget, Dystopian Futures has a new music video for their Low Arts song. Yes, I worked on it and I threw in some stealth puns. Hee hee hee…
I found out about this interview recently. It was amazing that Dave Hawkins from The Antidote interviewed my friend who’s also named Dave. They talk about the origins of ZAP Records and his numerous bands. Also, I got name-dropped briefly in this interview. Dave Emmerson is a legit guy and he really cares about the independent music scene.
Check out his bands:

This is a Jeremiad of sorts against the Prosperity Gospel. I absolutely despite this logic of wealthiness being godliness (or at least close to it).
After listening to my buddy Dave Emmerson’s projects with The Old-Timers and Their Throats Are Open Tombs, I feel like I had to throw in my take on that subject. This even goes back farther when I heard Derek Webb’s song “Ballad in Plain Red” which is a sarcastic take on that same subject.
The Prosperity Gospel has saddened me with people buying in (metaphorically and literally) into it and ties into the Servile Fear/Theophobia track.
It’s been a while since I posted on here. I really need to get better at that. Anyways, I debuted a new song for a compilation entitled Kill The Ill. It’s for Shawn Browning AKA Wretched, the lead singer from Grave Robber. He’s been diagnosed with nodes on his vocal cords with prevent him from singing. Even though I don’t personally now him, I have seen his band live before which really fun. No one should ever have to be sick like that. The proceeds from this compilation go straight to his medical bills. That’s $10 for the entire album.
Come on. $10 for a 92-track album. Let’s do the math here. It’s $0.10869565 per song and it’s for a great cause!
My friends in The Old-Timers, Desiring Dead Flesh, and Their Throats Are Open Tombs have contributed, too.
