Spent 75 minutes chatting with John “Jughead” Pierson From Screeching Weasel And Even In Blackouts today. This episode definitely exceeded all my expectations, even with the delay issue we were having with Odell. We pretty much covered it all from John’s falling out with Ben Weasel and his departure from Screeching Weasel to diving into the new Even In Blackouts album- ROMANTICO! To John’s work with The Neofuturist, and what comes next for his engaging podcast Jughead’s Basement.
A lot of punk history, a lot of great stories and John answers the burning question on many of the fans mind- would Jughead ever play with Screeching Weasel again. So find a comfy place to kick back and press play as we take you on a journey through some true Chicago Punk History.
