It Is a Weed Theme, True Story! with Honcho Swerver & The Hazy Eyed Smiles

It’s another New Wax Podcast, where we do our best to bring you the best in Independent Music that was sent to us…most of which comes to our twitter account!

Tonight we get yet another tee-shirt idea from Luppy:

“Feeling Good! Feeling Fine! Nothing but New Wax on my mind!”

In the start of tonight’s show we get an update on Living Luppy, and he is almost at his first goal! Way to go Luppy!


Than Joe and Luppy give us an update on their record label, and there is some pretty big news. It seems that Lupped Up Records has a new artist with a new single coming out this month…so stay tuned for that! They also have put a their first “web director on staff, some guy named Carl….hey wait a minute…

Joe also brings us up to date on his Kickstarter project to cover Nine Inch nails “Piggy” and here is a little sample from Soundcloud (I mean if your not listening to the podcast!):

Joe shows his nipples of to the group, why is beyond me…and this leads me to a real question that I would like an answer to from this listeners. Would you be willing to pay a small subscription fee (say $5.00 a month) to see the raw video feed of us recording the show? Please let us know on Twitter, Facebook, or in the comments below!

FINALLY! We talk about the first band of the night Honcho Swerver and the shocking fact that he found “Weed, Money, and B***hes” all in the same place.

While we cover this song Joe joins me on the “language side,” maybe he is getting old too? I know Luppy THINKS he is getting old because he…bought a doormat?

Next up we talk about the Hazy Eyed Smiles. The Hazy Eyed Smiles were formed in February 2011, when Phil Thompson and Pete Lawrence met via a website called join my band. After going through many lead guitarists and bass players, the final line up finally came in November 2011, when Lee Rapson joined on lead guitar followed by Dan Stagg on bass.

All four had been playing in different bands for over ten years, so when they eventually crossed paths and got into a practice room they hit the ground running.

Now they have a radio interview and a series of gigs behind them, plus gigs booked up till the end of the year and a growing fanbase., everything is continuing in the right direction…

And as we close out Joe and Luppy make fun of me for listening to Clif Ravescraft! We ask Pandora and GoToMeeting to sponsor the show, and I give a shout out to Tony from The 76th Street podcast for our first iTunes rating, do you listen via iTunes? Leave us a rating!

New Wax Podcast Listens to Various Hands & Rouzy Rouz

On this episode of New Wax…we learn that New Wax really is all about feelings!

Joe just went 2 rounds with Mike Tyson (not really but it sounds better than what really happened) and tries to do the show with 2 cracked ribs. We talk about Luppy and his vlog “Living Luppy,” where we learn about his (and Carl’s) weight loss.

And make sure to check out Joe’s new web site!

Than we cover the band “Various Hands.”   The are a band out of St. Louis, Missouri. Their music is catchy and appealing

and will make you want to move your body in a convulsive type of way that might otherwise be considered “dancing” while at the same time it touts uniqueness and fresh energy that is becoming a lost art in today’s industry. Various Hands combines an indie dance rock style of music with singer/guitarist Jeff Nations’ signature life-is-good lyric motif. Guitarist Zach Meier and drummer Ben Pitts round out a lineup of experienced, seasoned musicians. Their debut EP, This Party Will Be Fun., solidifies Various Hands’ feel-good message, upbeat rhythms and otherwise unorthodox views on what life (and music) should consist of and be recognized for these days.


We go on to cover Luppy’s release of “Fireworks,” which you can get in iTunes, or right here in the New Wax store.

After that we cover Rouzy Rouz  He released his first mixtape in July 2011 “Duty Calls” and received much recognition for his work and was signed under management with MTV’s very own Shawn Isaac. In less than a year Rouzy Rouzhad the opportunity to work with tophip hop artists, engineers, and producers in the industry and released his new hit single “Dance On Me”

I hope you like the show!

And a big shout out to 76th Street Podcast, for the awesome review in iTunes!
