Episodes

#222 Myles Kennedy (Slash/Alter Bridge/Solo)

Myles Kennedy is a man of many talents, whether it's his blistering vocals with Slash or Alter Bridge, secretly being one of the best guitarists in rock 'n' roll, or his most recent records as a solo artist, there is very little he can't do. He's also a lovely, lovely human and it's my great pleasure to finally welcome him onto Episode 222 of Life In The Stocks. We get deep! And we share a few laughs along the way. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording it.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

#217 Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup)

Welcome to this very special episode of Life In The Stocks with my dear old Jaret Reddick from Bowling For Soup. I've known Jaret for ten years, since the Kerrang! Radio days, and he's one of my best friends in the music business. It's been six years since we last did an interview together, so we had an awful lot of ground to cover, and we got deep into it. People have been asking me when is Jaret going to make an appearance on the podcast ever since I launched the show in 2017, and believe me when I say it's been well worth the wait. This is one of the most honest, open & vulnerable podcast conversations you will ever hear. It's one of my all-time favourite episodes. Thank you to Jaret for being such a great guest and a great friend. I hope you find this talk as inspiring and life-affirming as I did.Life In The Stocks is sponsored by Radical Clothing.

#216 Atom Willard (Rocket From The Crypt/Angels & Airwaves/The Offspring/Against Me!)

From one member of Against Me! to another this week, drummer Atom Willard joins me for Episode 216 of Life In The Stocks as we attempt to cover a significant chunk (there was no way we were ever going to cover all of it) of the project he's been involved in over the years, from Rocket From The Crypt and The Special Goodness to Angels & Airwaves and Against Me! Like many of the best drummers out there - Josh Freese, Joey Castillo, Ilan Rubin - Atom is insanely prolific and has played with so many great bands. It was cool to pick his brain and hear his unique perspective on all the bands that he's played in. Life In The Stocks is sponsored by Radical Clothing.

My dear friend Laura Jane Grace returns for a second Life In The Stocks appearance this week - the first being Episode 003 way back in February 2017.

#208 TV Smith (The Adverts/Solo)

Punk legend TV Smith joins me for Episode 208 of Life In The Stocks. This is an incredibly exciting guest for me, as The Adverts are on of my all-time favourite punk bands and TV Smith is one of my all-time favourite songwriters. The first two Adverts albums, and his debut solo album, Channel Five, have been key records throughout my life. His new album Lockdown Holiday is also great - it addresses not only the global pandemic that we're still in, but also the state of humanity and where we find ourselves in 2021. I really hope you enjoy this conversation one of the all-time great British songwriters.Life In The Stocks is sponsored by Radical Clothing.

#202 Eric Melvin (NOFX)

We're kicking off Series Three of Life In The Stocks with a NOFX double bill. And what better way to initiate the next round of 100 episodes than with not one but TWO podcasts with the guys in my all-time favourite band. Last week, I finally welcomed Fat Mike on to the show, and it fast became my most downloaded episode to date. The response was incredible. And if you think that conversation with Fat Mike went deep, wait until you hear this week's podcast with Eric Melvin. What a beautiful soul.We had such a lovely talk, taking in the pandemic, how it's affected NOFX, life coaching, listening to and connecting with people, PMA, drugs and alcohol, what's been happening with Mike, getting him in to rehab, how that's impacted the band, the role of Smelly and El Hefe in NOFX, the book, fatherhood, his new electronic project, and so much more. This episode really is a great example of what this podcast is all about: deep philosophical discussions with interesting artists and grade A humans. I really hope you enjoy it and take something positive away from it.Be sure to check out the new album by NOFX as well. It's called 'Single Album' and it's out NOW.

#201 Fat Mike (NOFX)

This conversation has been a LONG time in the making. If you know me at all, or you've been following me online or listening to this podcast for a while, then you'll know that NOFX are my favourite band of all-time. I'm not saying they're the best, but they are my personal favourite. They've had such a big impact in my life. I even talk about it in my new book, which is out NOW! ;)The new album by NOFX, entitled Single Album, is also out NOW. And it's their most personal, self reflective, introspective record to date. You might not think that's your bag - you may prefer the upbeat, jovial, political NOFX - but truth be told, no one in the punk scene does sad, dark, confessional compositions quite like Fat Mike. This album is awesome. And because it is a little on the sombre side, this conversation is a little earnest, and perhaps not what you would expect from Fat Mike. But that's exactly why I like it.I'm obviously going to be biased, but I think this is one of the most open, honest & vulnerable interviews Fat Mike has ever done. And as a lifelong uber fan of the band, it was a dream come true to have him on the show. I wish we could've talked for even longer than we did. But we covered a lot of ground in the time that we did have together.

#168 Jesse Leach Interviews Matt Stocks

And now for something completely different. A couple of weeks back, I got a message from my good friend Jesse Leach. He had a novel idea: that he come on Life In The Stocks, and not as a guest, but rather the host, and interview me for a change. So we switched roles. And this is the resulting conversation. I had an absolute ball recording it (apologies for the poor sound quality - I'm still figuring out these remote recording methods), and I hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you so much to Jesse for suggesting we do this, being interested enough to do it, and for taking the time out for little old me. Consider me humbled, in the best possible way.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

#167 Janey Starling (Dream Nails)

Dream Nails are Matt's favourite new UK punk band, and their singer Janey Starling has been someone he wanted on the podcast for a while. She's smart, informed, outspoken, engaging, passionate, funny, articulate - and one hell of a front woman. Dream Nails also happen to be one of the most exciting and important upcoming UK bands around. And with a lot going on in the world right now, it seemed like the perfect time to get Janey on the show. Unsurprisingly, we had an awful lot to talk about, too. Hopefully you enjoy, and take lots of interesting and positive things away from the conversation. Keep an eye out for the debut self-titled album by Dream Nails, coming later this year.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

#166 Jake Szufnarowski (Rocks Off)

Usually, when we put out episodes that are longer than 90 minutes, we split them into two parts, but we've decided to keep this one whole so you can get swept up and lost in the conversation. It's a DEEP one this week. And things get a little intense at times. But then that's what we do here on Life In The Stocks, and we hope anyone that's previously struggled or currently struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts will take something positive and inspirational away from hearing Jake's story.Jake is one of Matt's dearest friends, and in the words of Hunter S. Thompson, is "one of God's own prototypes: too weird to live and too rare to die." This already ranks as an all-time favourite episode. There's tales from Warped Tour '97, the final days of CBGB, partying with Kid Rock, and Jake's mental breakdown, suicide attempt, and the long, hard, ultimately rewarding road to recovery. There is something for everyone in here.Be sure to buy yourself a protective mask from Jake's insane array of designs, too. They're guaranteed to put a smile on your face - not to mention the faces of people you pass in the street. Jake also has some amazing Tiger King t-shirts for sale, too.Web link here: https://rocksoffthreads.threadless.com/Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

He is the man, the myth, the legend, Mr Vinnie Stigma - from the Godfathers of Hardcore, Agnostic Front. He joins Matt for a pre-Corona virus, pre-social distancing chat about New York history, hardcore and CBGB. Vinnie also reveals his wide range of unlikely creative influences, from Jimi Hendrix and Frank Sinatra all the way to Bruce Lee, discusses his relationship and creative partnership with AF frontman Roger Miret, and shares his thoughts on everything from pigeons to the mafia. It's a thoroughly entertaining talk with one of the most original characters in rock 'n' roll.

#163 Chris No. 2 (Anti-Flag)

This week's episode of Life In The Stocks features Chris No. 2 from Anti-Flag. Despite touring together in the past, this was actually the first time that Matt and No. 2 sat down and had a proper conversation together, and it was well and truly worth the wait. What you're about to hear is deep, intense, life affirming, vulnerable and honest conversation that goes to some pretty difficult and at times dark places, but always comes back to the light and a tone of optimism and hope, because that's the kind of guy Chris is. You are going to love this episode. And we hope, if you've also been affected by some of the issues raised here, that you find some form of respite and comfort in No. 2's story.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the last episode of Series One of Life In The Stocks, and Episode 100 overall. Seeing as how Pritchard & Dainton were the top two most downloaded episodes from the first season of the podcast, it made sense to bring things full circle with the audio from one of the Live Dirty Sanchez shows, and we've gone with the Cardiff show because that one was the most unruly and out of control - and it ends with live strip show, which may well be a podcast first. We'd like to say a huge thank you to Pritchard & Dainton for their friendship and all their support with the podcast.

#041 Tim McIlrath (Rise Against)

Nowadays, Rise Against are a hugely successful arena rock band, but they still retain a connection to their humble hardcore rock roots as this conversation with the band's singer Tim McIlrath undoubtably proves. They've grown and evolved over the years, but essentially they're the same group they always were: just a bunch of down to earth dudes driven by melodic punk rock music with a message. From growing up in the Chicago punk scene and playing in hardcore bands with Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz to signing with Fat Wreck Chords and recording with Bill Stevenson, it all gets covered in Episode 041 of Life In The Stocks - including the recent suicides of Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell, both of whom Tim called friends. All in all, an inspiring talk with a very inspiring artist.Follow Matt Stocks on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram: @mattstocksdjCheck out the Life In The Stocks Patreon page, support this podcast, and get all kinds of extras in return, from bonus podcasts & DJ mixes to archive print interviews & radio shows.www.patreon.com/lifeinthestocksMatt's first book, 'Life In The Stocks: Veracious Conversations with Musicians & Creatives (Vol. 01)' is also out NOW and is available via Amazon, Waterstones & Rare Bird Publishing.https://rarebirdlit.com/life-in-the-stocks-veracious-conversations-with-musicians-creatives/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
