TMP167 BILL DAVIS RIPS IT UP
The Dash Rip Rock singer/guitarist has spent a lifetime barnstorming the country fronting the revved-up roots punk trio he founded as a college student. The song parody “Let’s Go Smoke Some Pot” pushed them to the top of the radio charts. The band’s roster of drummers including Fred LeBlanc, Chris Luckett, and Kyle Melancon employ a specific muscular playing style, while Bill’s guitar prowess has landed him on projects with artists ranging from Mojo Nixon and the Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra to Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze. With a new record “Cherchez La Femme” coming out, he jumps on the line to catch the Troubled Men up on the latest mayhem.
Topics include a road trip, breakthrough cases, the dump, infestation, trigger warnings, the swingers convention, a campaign update, Lake Charles bands, a KISS concert, an afro fire, Kelly Keller as manager, 688 Records, college radio, REM, the English Beat, the Beverly Hillbillies, Donna Douglas, a supergroup, Jim Dickinson, Jewel, Gwen Stefani, Alternative Tentacles Records, the New Orleans Raunch and Soul Allstars, rescheduling, and much more.
