Jeff Rosenstock returned to the podcast to discuss his brand new surprise record “Post-” and how he managed to pull off a surprise release in an age where keeping a secret is more difficult than ever. Along the way we talk about Rosenstock’s unrequited love of the New York Knicks, his latest gig scoring the Cartoon Network show “Craig Of The Creek” and his days of working at a pizzeria in Athens, Georgia. We also spend a large chunk of the podcast discussing Rosenstock’s instinctual approach to his career and the way he is able to reconcile his art with commerce without sacrificing his DIY ideals. Jeff truly is the real deal and the fact that he’s been able to build such an impressive career on his own terms is a testament to his talent as a performer. He’s also incredibly personable… so next time you see him at your local Pizza Hut, make sure you say you heard him on Going Off Track. Jeff Rosenstock

Will Noon has drummed for Fun., Starlight Run, Breaking Pangea, Nate Ruess and countless other acts that are likely in your iTunes. However he’s also a Renaissance Man in the true sense of the phrase who is an avid motorcyclist and early adopter of this super obscure type of cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. This episode of the podcast sees us addressing all of those issues in depth as well as the genesis of his latest musical project Mourners, a collaboration with former Going Off Track guest Jarrod Gorbel (The Honorary Title, Night Terrors of 1927). If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to ride a bike across the country, buy strange digital currencies at a time when everyone thought you were insane or perform high-profile gigs like The Grammys and Saturday Night Live, you’ll definitely get a kick out of this hour-long conversation with the pride of Long Island percussion. From post-hardcore to pure pop punk and everything in between—including a stint on the infamous label Victory Records—Noon has proved himself to be an incredibly versatile drummer who shows no signs of slowing down, so you should definitely listen to what he has to say. Hey, you might even learn something. Follow Will on Twitter Check out Mourners

Sick Of It All bassist Craig Setari stopped by Going Off Track to discuss playing in New York Hardcore's most legendary bands such as SOIA, The Cro-Mags, Straight Ahead, Agnostic Front and Creep Division. We also discuss what it was like playing CBGB when he was 14 years old, his love of boxing and why he'd rather be riding ATVs upstate than busting heads in the pit. "When I first went to shows in the early '80s it was punks and skins but by the late '80s it had already expanded quite a bit, a lot of suburban kids were into it and it grew a lot," Setari says when asked to look back on the legendary era when he started coming into Manhattan from Queens to see shows. "The whole hardcore scene in New York was a great thing for me all the way through, there were a few years when it was a bit cloudy but I was always drawn to it, you know?" Along the way we discuss some of Setari's favorite Motown basslines, the influence of hip-hop on the hardcore scene and what it was like seeing a local band called Anthrax play some of their first shows in his old neighborhood. You've heard other interviews with Setari but believe us when we tell you that those only scratch the surface. (Sorry, Craig.)
