Since I started Daytrotter in 2006, it’s always been my goal to do as much to promote and expose great music/bands to as many people as we possibly could – helping them sell records, get people out to shows and just generally surviving as artists. We have tens of thousands of people on the site daily and an email list that goes out to over 300,000 people every day. Now we’re going to give bands the opportunity to benefit financially – forever – when they tape a Daytrotter session.
While there’s no question the band has a place in hardcore history, Suicidal Tendencies has never achieved the level of reverence and respect afforded to contemporaries like, say, Bad Brains.
This is odd because the bands share more than a few similarities. Both of them rose to prominence around the same time with ethnically diverse lineups in a predominately white scene and both garnered their fair (and, often, unfair) share of controversy, especially in their early years.
Currently held-up in their band-compound/recording studio in Los Angeles, IWABO are pushing themselves musically like never before. While known for their schizophrenic sound and unconventional song structure, IWABO is approaching their next record with a new focus and a determination to deliver an album that will surprise fans and entirely re-define who they are as a band.
A two guitar and drum band, Radical Dads’ newest release, their 2nd full-length, titled Rapid Reality, has a spacious sound that both booms and rings at the same time. Heavy drumbeats and melodic guitar lines join together to create an indie pop soundscape that rocks hard while also pleasing the ears.

GWAR’s Oderus Urungus once called Finland’s Lordi “a kiddie version of GWAR” and there is some truth to that. While the two bands’ giant alien-mutant costumes bear striking similarities to each other, GWAR’s approach to music and performance art has always been more “adult” (as anyone who’s ever been covered in at a GWAR show can attest) than Lordi’s.
