Bands you may not have heard of…

It’s been awhile since I posted anything. So I decided to goahead and get something out there. I wanted to mention 3 bands I came across while listening to various podcasts.


Pike is based out of Cincinnati, OH is a punk influenced band. One of their members used to be on the Night of the Living Podcast (great horror podcast by the way). Even though I work in an internet-related field, I have been slow to purchase music digitally. Pike changed that for me. Night of the Living Podcast had a special episode when Pike held a CD Release Party. I was hooked. Went to their website and purchased almost every song there. Very affordable prices compared to iTunes.

Unified School District

I first heard USD from the Geek Savants podcast’s opening and closing theme.  Super Ugly is one of the hosts and USD is his music.  iTunes has  some of USD’s music for sale and you can purchase tracks directly from MySpace.  Thier MySpace page has several songs you can listen to to get the flavor.  Think rap – but not gangsta rap.

First Jason

First Jason is described as hardcore horror-punk.  That pretty much sums it up.  First Jason is fronted by Ari Lehman, the actor who played Jason Vorhees in the first Friday the 13th movie.  You can find 2 songs on the website and MySpace page: Red Red REd and Sink or Swim.
