We can't wait to tell you about our new ep! Checkered Past welcomes Chris Ruckus of Pittsburg Skacore band Dissidente on the podcast to discuss influential Ska Punkers The Suicide Machines! First, Chris recounts his formative Ska years, the realities of going to shows as you age and the unfortunate realities of pay-to-play booking. Then, Rob, Engineer Joey and Chris go through the 90's era of The Suicide Machines from their snotty early years to their Hollywood Records deal to their Beatles-influenced self titled album. They cap it off with a game of Blank and the Blanks and Chris settles the debate of what exactly makes a dumpling.
