Welcome to the Gabba Gabba Huh? Podcast, featuring the best of The Carolinas' punk, alternative, hard rock, and heavy metal from the past 40 years. While the main podcast (Gabba Gabba Huh? Talks) will be more converstional and interview style, while "Gabba Gabba Huh? Radio" will focus on the music, with some background information on the songs and bands featured. Most songs will be digitized from original vinyl, cassette, or CD sources, thus the quality will vary, but will be rather true to the original form. Hosted by Mike Phillips from Van Huskins
This week, GGH ventures into new territory with the first, non-music and non-Carolinas related episode! We'll call this one, Gabba Gabba Huh? Goes to the Movies, and it features John Amplas, from such movies as Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Creepshow, and as the titular star of George Romero's Martin! We talk about everything from how he got into acting, to how he came to work with George Romero, his thirty six years ...
This week I talk to legendary record seller, DIY label runner, and rock and roller Malcolm Tent! In addition to his musical journey, we also talk quite a bit about running a record store and a DIY record label, falling in love with rock and roll, selling records from your collection, and encounters with famous customers! Russ Ward is along for the ride and brings a couple of great stories out of Malcolm! We start this one talking a...

This week I sat down with Scott Robbins and Bethany Sietsma from Leaving Echoes (Central NC, Statesville/Winston Salem area) to talk about their new album, Jump In, which was over twenty five years in the making. In addition to their long history, we also talk about the Heart of Rock and Roll, "foster venues", high school go-go dancers, getting a little help from your friends, and where the future is taking them (including ...
This week I talk to John Rash of Southern Punk Archive, via skype, about his previous bands Heebie Geebies, and Crimson Spectre, his zine, Slave, his documentary, Negro Terror, and his current project documenting southern punk rock, which you know is a subject near and dear to my heart! We also talk about Flipside customer service, talking to Mike Watt, and the pathway to punk rock and how it was often steered by skateboarding, zin...
This week I sat down with Winston Salem band, Hey Revolver, for a delicious lunch of lasagna thanks to Jon's wife (and garlic bread, thanks to Jon and Harris Teeter), and of course the story of how they became a band (don't worry, we ate prior to recording, not while). In addition to their individual stories, we also talk about stealing music, Prince as a prom date, the importance of not being a douchebag if you play mandol...
So I told you if I couldn't line up an episode, I'd be back with something... well that something is a clip show! And not just any clip show, this is stuff that was cut from the main episodes, along with songs that weren't played on those episodes. If you're a patreon supporter, you've probably heard these clips, but if not, this is an example of what you're missing out on! If you've missed out on any of...
This week on Gabba Gabba Huh? Radio we go into the Acoustic Storm! The first set is (mostly) acoustic, but don't worry, it gets rowdy towards the end.

The Good Graces - (I Should Probably Write a) Happy Song

This week I sat down with Jason Broadwater at Rock Hill Brewing Company to talk about his history playing in such bands as Tonka, Eddy, Cannons, and more, including his current project, Skydriver! Just a quick heads up, there's a decent amount of background noise due to our location, but it never overtakes our conversation! As a matter of fact, have fun playing name that tune with the background music you can hear sporadically ...
This week, I spoke with Ryan McGinnis again, for more Milestone stories, more My So-Called Band stories, and we talk about his new book, coming out September 6th called Tears of the Dragon! In addition to all that, we also talk about band etiquette at shows, Mad Brother Ward, creative procrastination, having several chapters in life, and so much more!
This week, I spoke to Steve Munsell, via Skype, all the way from Arizona! While we, of course, talked about Contagious Graphics and how it got started, we also talked about his two bands (Unvoiced and Üblisch), his time traveling with touring bands, his current money making hobby with model accessories, and why he left not only Contagious Graphics, but also Charlotte (and never looked back). Lots of names dropped in this one, inclu...
This week I sat down with Jordan Bowman, and his brother Jon (y'all should know him by now!) to talk about Jordan's musical journey. By having Jon along, it's also a little bit of a window into brothers playing music together (something that's quite common as you'll learn through this episode). There's a lot more to come from this episode through patreon (I owe patreon about three episodes worth... it's ...

This week, I drove up to Cornelius, NC to hang out with 3/4 of Will Saint Creek! This time, I made sure the recorder was running (though when I went to adjust some audio levels today my project file was corrupt, so maybe there's a curse!), and we talked about their new singles, the Milestone, injuries, side projects, self promotion, The Barrycade, and more!

For this week's episode, I drove down to Rock Hill, SC to talk to Gregory Ellis, currently of Motel Glory. We sat outside, as it was such a nice day (get ready for some bird calls and a little bit of traffic), and talked about our old days playing punk rock in the early nineties, K-Tel compilations, The Sweaty Monkey Goes Fishing Festival, the early days of MTV, th...
Hey! Here's just a little extra from the Russ Ward episode. I completely left off the "what's next part" because I found the perfect place the end the episode, but this is some great info if you want to know what's going on in the world of ANTiSEEN, as well as other projects Russ is involved in. This one is short and sweet, but definitely essential!
Songs for GGHT44.5:
ANTiSEEN - Atomic Clock
This week my guest is Russ Ward, AKA Mad Brother Ward, current guitarist for ANTiSEEN and a Charlotte music scene legend in his own right. We talk about the early days of playing shows together in 1993, the MBW nickname and persona, GG Allin, getting banned from the Milestone (twice), his retirement from music and the event that changed that, and his new KISS nerd podcast. Be sure to listen all the way to the end because "The m...
Finally back with a new Talks! episode! This week I got to hang out with two of my best friends and record one heck of an episode for you. Jon Bowman returns to talk about a new single called Fight, that he's dropping TODAY (go listen at prehistoricjon.bandcamp.com as you won't hear the whole thing in this episode)! Eric Huskins from Van Huskins also joins us for a very unfocused episode! In addition to discussing the new s...

This week I sat down with Michael Carpenter, of the upcoming Gastonia, NC music venue, The Rooster! This episode is a little different as it features no music! It's also my first episode that doesn't feature a practicing musician, though I intend to bring you more like this in the future! We start off "talking shop" a little bit as well as discussing the trip to Myrtle Beach to see The Fill Ins and Lilith Rising tha...
