If you've listened long enough, you know Nick's gonna hit VA Beach at some point every year and he always comes back with some great podcasts. Having already done some great episodes with Tony Riccio of Saltwater Tattoo, it's time to hear from the other main man, Mike Rickards. We get some great history and great stories from Mike and Nick and then more and more of the SWT crew rolls in. Before it's all over you'll hear from Matt Nelson, Brandon Webb, Joey Ilardi and Kavi Montoya. It's a fun hangout and a great time, so enjoy! We'll get back to the Shop Talks as soon as we can, folks.
That's right. Slim. Motherfucking. Brown! Back on NLJBS, talkin' with Nick for a few hours and it's non-stop, man. Slim goes hard and there's not a millisecond of dead air to be found. This episode is super special, not only to have the privilege of the wisdom and whim of Slim, but you can hear throughout the sounds of a tattoo being executed by the one and only Mike Wilson. It's a great time with freakin' great stories with a killer tattoo shop filled with close friends and good times and you can feel the vibe throughout the episode, so y'all will definitely enjoy this one. There ain't no shop talk on here yet, but you won't need it after absorbing all the awesomeness of this one. Check it out.
Beau returns for another absolutely awesome episode. Nick travelled down to Richmond to Absolute Art and recorded a farewell podcast with Beau Beau so you won't wanna miss it. That's right he's kickin' down to the deep south, way past the borders of this country and a few more. Listen in to hear all about it, as well as some Avail tales and discussions that don't hold back on a ton of bands and all kinds of other shit in the punk rock universe that exists around these two dudes.
There's no Shop Talk quite yet, but you can hear a fun guest appearance early on by the one and only Timothy Hoyer as well as a side discussion featuring Keith Harper. Ignore the occasional audio problem whenever Beau gets excited and animated and enjoy this killer bullshit session.
Mrs. Diane Laws is one of those mentors who had an impact on so many young people it would be impossible to count. Well, if you've ever wondered how Nick got to be the charismatic host of your favorite podcast, this is definitely one of those guests who influenced him the most. Sit back and listen to some of those tales as you get to know a wonderful human being and amazing teacher. There's plenty of Clifton Forge talk and all kinds of stories from the past that just need to be shared and enjoyed, and there are no shortage of people who were influenced by Mrs. Laws who will love this opportunity to hear from her again.
There's a lot going on around Alley Cat Tattoo and the podcast these days, so Shop Talks are on hold for the time being. Look for Andrew Conner and Chris Porter to return in a future episode. Enjoy.
Joey Knuckles made the journey back down to Alley Cat Tattoo and this time things get a bit out of this world. Lots of great stories throughout the episode, but more importantly are some crazy topics that will free your mind into thinking the way it was supposed to. Three or four of his homies are hangin' at the same time. No Shop Talk this week, so this'll have to do. But Porter and Andrew will return soon!
