Going Off Track alumni Jason Black (Hot Water Music) and Arty Shepherd (Errortype: Eleven, Primitive Weapons) came by with our friend Neltie to talk about their new musical project UnWed who just released their debut album, Raise The Kids. As expected we mostly talk about conspiracy theories, what it's like balancing a band with a day job/family and the downfall of music journalism. We also discuss why Jason probably doesn't remember your favorite Hot Water Music show, why Saint Vitus enlists professionals to record their shows and why the cassette resurgence drives mostly all of us insane. There's a lot happening here, folks.

Chris Barron the  lead singer for 90’s sensation Spin Doctors talks about songwriting, coming up thru the 90’s NYC music scene and lead singer disorder. He also recounts how his happiest moments with the band didn't come from playing arenas but from being able to afford a steak and milkshake as a starving artist in the East Village. We also discuss the nihilism of the grunge scene and the misconception that you need to be miserable in order to be creative. "There is plenty of pain in this world to draw from, I think the myth is you need to be tortured and subsequently crippled," Barron says at one point. As someone who's got an incredibly unique perspective on the artistic process and mainstream success, it's worth listening to what he has to say.

Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness' namesake came by to discuss his battle with cancer this week with fellow survivor and guest host Vanessa Bayer. Although they had the disease at different ages, there are many parallels with their struggle from their ability to use it as motivation to making them realize that laughter can help even during the seemingly darkest times. But don't worry, we also find time to discuss our shared love for "guilty pleasures" such as Phil Collins and Bruce Hornsby, what drove McMahon to practice piano for hours a day when he was a teenager (to the chagrin of his siblings) and, maybe most importantly, what it was like for Jonah to have his very first Cappuccino alongside his sister at Lilith Fair.

Har Mar Superstar a.k.a. Sean Tillman came by Going Off Track to discuss his two-decade long musical evolution from the guitar pop of Sean Na Na to R&B crooning of Har Mar Superstar, how you can retain your artistic credibility with the right mindset and what it's been like sharing the stage with everyone from Incubus to the Strokes and, more recently, Father John Misty and Macaulay Culkin's Pizza Underground. "For years I kind of felt like I was a stand-up but I could hide behind music," Tillman says of his nascent Har Mar performances—and if you haven't seen him live, trust us, do yourself favor and witness him person next time he comes to your town. Just don't be surprised if you're girlfriend ends up "staying at a friend's house" after the show. Har Mar Superstar
