011: Soto Rebelos

Published On May 15, 2015 | I’VE KNOWN YOU TOO LONG, PODCASTS

Dave has always had a lot of respect for Soto, going all the way back to the days when he was one of the only other long-hairs in the local scene. Together they sort through the confused timelines and early passions of a young, Greek metalhead, including a dizzying amount of moving and changing schools, how a girlie mag subscription in grade school will get you toys, and how eyeliner in middle school will get you girls. Plus a bunch of stuff about Punk & Metal. UNITE OR DIE!

Most of these conversations will contain shorthand speech and insider info that both parties will be familiar with and won’t necessarily stop to explain for the listener. Whenever possible, Dave will provide some after-the-fact definitions and descriptions. Like your own personal eavesdropping translator.

The Van after the pole:


David Larson is a screenwriter from the Seattle area who ran an independent record label called EXCURSION for many years. Over the course of the last three decades, Dave has formed friendships with a large number of people who have made an artistic impact, mostly in the world of Punk Rock and Hardcore music. Many of these people have gone on to greater and more varied adventures in the worlds of art, film, music, politics, and activism. In this podcast, Dave uses the timeline of their first meeting to explore back and forth through their histories to try and gain a better understanding of how they came to be the people they are today.

They say history is written by the conquerors, and while none of these campaigns are complete yet, it is time to get some of these tales nailed down before they are lost to time and age.
