Revelator Show 85: Get Some
On this episode I welcome Mikey Doling from the band SNOT. I’ll also cover my week 10 NFL picks, the loss of Wayne Static, The top movies at the box office and much more on Revelator!
I tend to always come up with interesting titles for shows each week. However this weeks blog there was really no other option, “Get Some” was going to be it. Now, of course I did have a few ideas bounce around in my head as to what I could have named the show. I’ve listed a few almost made it show titles below.
“My Balls Your Chin”
“Fuck The Record, Fuck The People”
I want to give a big thank you to Chris and Aysia from TRS247 Radio for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their radio network on TRS247.com .The Revelator show can be heard weekly at 8PM ET.

Not only did I get a chance to see this show, I also was able to get a photo pass to photo the event.

Regarding the recent news this past Saturday night of Wayne Static’s passing, I share a fun story about the first time I heard Static-X and their debut album “Wisconsin Death Trip”
Singer/guitarist Wayne Static (born Wayne Richard Wells) of the industrial metal band Static-X has passed away at the age of 48. His death was confirmed by Wayne's publicists at FiXT Publicity.
Static-X released six studio albums between 1999 and 2009 before disbanding. Static then launched a solo career and released his debut solo album, "Pighammer", in 2011.
Wayne was scheduled to take his solo band back on the road for a co-headlining tour with POWERMAN 5000 starting on November 6 in Waterloo, Iowa.
This week’s show is a special one for me in a lot of ways. I’ve been a big fan of the band SNOT for many years and having a chance to speak with Mikey was really a great experience. Mikey was open and candid about SNOT and he had some great stories to share about Lynn. The stories range from his great recording story for the song “My Balls Your Chin” to their first meeting and forming the band in LA. Mikey also speaks about the impact of Lynn Strait’s loss both personally and professionally.
You will also here three cuts off the album “Get Some” The interview leads off with a double shot of SNOT including the lead song “SNOT” followed by a personal favorite of mine “Unplugged” I close the interview with one of Mikey's favorite tracks off the album “Snooze Button” that also has a new video made of old concert footage of Lynn Strait and some visual images from the world we live in today.
Snot is set to embark on a US tour this November 28th in memory of Lynn Strait. They will be playing the album “Get some” in its entirety. To see all the dates on this tour visit. http://www.bandsintown.com/Snot%28Band%29/start_tracking?came_from=201
Lynn Strait was killed in a in six-vehicle crash on a freeway exit ramp December 11th, 1998. Also killed was the band’s mascot, Dobbs, Strait’s dog who adorned the cover of Snot’s debut album for Geffen, 1997′s “Get Some.”
SNOT has tapped Carl Bensley (Vitate, Consume The Fire) to sing for the band following the recent departure of Tommy "Vext" Cummings (ex-DIVINE HERESY). SNOT guitarist Mikey Doling says: "[Carl] is an incredible monster vocalist and great dude. [We're] very excited to rock with him."
It’s great to have SNOT back in action! If you’re a fan of metal music this is your shot to see them. Mikey, also hinted about more shows in 2015. I for one hope so! Get Some SNOT!
This Week in Revelator History:
This week in Revelator history features show #34 “Bring Your Smoking Jacket” http://omnes.tv/revelator/episode34/
I interviewed Natasha Singer from the band Eye Ra Haze to talk about their upcoming EP “Eye Of The Storm” We also share some great stories about her modeling career and how she broke into the music industry. Natasha and I also share an admiration for Faith No More Singer Mike Patton.
For this week I’ve decided to do something a little different with this weekly blog feature. I’ll still be doing a small write up about past guest but I’ll also be playing one song from the artist on the weekly broadcast. The Eye Ra Haze song “New Beginning” is the feature track on this week’s show.
This past March Natasha issued this statement about the bands demise on Facebook.
To most of you what I am about to say may come as a real shock and for those close to me they know it has been a long time coming. I have decided to end my project EYE RA HAZE. I have felt uninspired and distracted for some time and couldn't quite pull it in the direction I really desired, couple that with some bad luck and timing and looming personal issues and it has left a dark cloud over us that has weighed heavily upon me for far too long. I hope you will all continue to support these wonderful friends I have had the honor of playing with these last few years. I will leave the FB fan page up so Nicole Papastavrou Kevin Corcoran Chris Marrone Karine P. Catenacci can all post about their exciting new projects to come. They are all so deliciously talented. Not to worry my loves I will continue to sing and song write and experience myself through this next chapter of my life and cannot wait to share with all of you who have shown me so much support even 4 year before Eye Ra Haze was even a band and just my performing name you have been there for me. What a wonderful part of my musical history.
As always thank you for taking the time to read and listen to Revelator. I’ve got some amazing upcoming guest that include Blue Stalhi, Andy Wood, Annandale, Drowning Pool and many others yet to be named. I’ve also got some great concert photos coming up that include Death from Above 1979 and Mastodon.
