Episode 100!

Nothing more needs to be said. It's 100!

Listen Now:


While the van alarm keeps going off in nighted Brooklyn, Eamonn and Billy cover the first dates of the American Splendor Tour thus far. Special appearance by Jesse and DJ cup4water. 

Listen Now:


SOS-meets-moving truck. David Byrne-meets-John Goodman. Grasshoppers-meet-Cantonese Screams. It's a brisk and desperation-fueled Episode 98!

Listen Now:


Recorded just hours before another 13-hour Megabus ride, Billy and Eamonn run down the shows of the past few weeks and get personal on their complete inability to communicate when it comes to design. Jonny stops by for "Booking With Jonny" and everyone gets a star. It's Episode 97!

Listen Now:


The font's too big. What makes it a hit? And let's play a game called "David Bowie Songs That Best Express The Third Segment." It's a rollercoaster of an Episode 86!

Listen Now:


Jonny stops by to help show you how easy booking a tour can be while Eamonn and Billy talk so much inside baseball...well, there's a lot of inside baseball. It's a doomy Episode 95!

Listen Now:


Doing a cover is always a dicey proposition. If people like it, you become the band that does this great cover (I think their original stuff is okay?) and if people hate it, you've just burned a song in the set that you could have played one of your own for them to hate instead. We've tried a lot over the years. Also, the Dick Van Dyke Show and Jerry Lewis Soccer All-Stars. It's Episode 94!

Listen Now:


Billy and Eamonn finish recounting the first leg of the Pale Summer tour and discuss the art involved in letting a band into your home. It's a Pride Parade Invaded Episode 93!

Listen Now:


The first international episode live on tape from a hotel room in Toronto! This is so late that there isn't time for a recap. It's Episode 92!

Listen Now:


The greatest band documentary of all time? We think so. Grab your band therapist and listen up to a docu-heavy Episode 93! 

Listen Now:


Eamonn returns for a "How does it actually happen?" kind of episode. How did we get management? Do we deserve management? Does anyone deserve anything? Why is Eamonn back on Craigslist? It's all answered in a stunning Episode 90!

Listen Now:


Episode 89: Mom

I don't imagine many people plan on having six boys, five of whom sell their lives to music with varying degrees of success. Meet my mom. A doctorate and college professor, all-the-while spending 47 years as a mother. It was high time we had her on for a very special Episode 89.  

Listen Now:


Driving around the snowy streets of Milwaukee, Billy gets to interview another of his heroes: Grantland contributor and rock critic to the nth degree, it's Steven Hyden on Episode 88!

Listen Now:


It's a rundown of all things SXSW, plus cities we hate and things only Eamonn can afford. Check your room before entering, it's Episode 87!

Listen Now:


Live from SXSW. Listen, buddy.

Listen Now:


What do you do when the worst goes down? Catch a glimpse with this extremely tardy Episode 85. 

Listen Now:


Another drive home on the way from practice, but wait! There's Taco Bell, building managers, and nothing else remotely interesting about the music of The Kickback, but you might want to listen anyway. Why? HAVE YOU EVER RIDDEN HOME WITH A BAND FROM BAND PRACTICE? Didn't think so. See you for a compelling Episode 84!

Listen Now:


It's just Billy and he's talking about some of the less great parts of the last few months. It gets better, so don't get down. If it ain't bleak, it ain't us. It's your new year and we're doing it right on Episode 83. 

Listen Now:


Consequence of Sound Senior Staff Writer Dan Caffrey stops by DISASTOUR to discuss his approach to criticism, the best part of the Yeezus tour, and how the second coming entails Michael Keaton with a blues band. Oh come all ye faithful, the merriest of season's greetings and tidings of great joy to you and yours this Episode 82!
