Listen to “TM 648 John Bush and John Garcia” on Spreaker. On this episode Talking Metal, Mark Strigl speaks with vocalist John Bush (Armored Saint, formerly of Anthrax) and vocalist John Garcia (formerly of Kyuss). He also checks out some music by the Sean Baker Orchestra and a band out of Brazil called Jack the Joker.
The interview with John Bush starts at the 12:30 mark. Topics include the new live Armored Saint album Carpe Noctum (Metal Blade), the Win Hands Down album, Spotify, his day job, being a part of the 1980’s Los Angeles hard rock & metal scene and much more. When asked why some of the Bush-era metal albums aren’t as widely available as the Belladonna-era Anthrax albums John says “If I go to Amoeba Records and I go to the Anthrax section, I never see any of the records I made which is disheartening because I am really proud of those albums and I think we made some great music. I certainly would like for them to be available for people to check out.”
Then we hear from John Garcia. This interview starts at the 53min mark. Topics include his new acoustic album The Coyote Who Spoke In Tongues, Ehren Groban, Nick Oliveri, Josh Homme, Iggy Pop, Kyuss, Brant Bjork, the Kylie music video, his day job, touring and much more.
