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!

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!


Lastly don’t forget we are supporting the Podcast Awards and we are shooting for a Stitcher Awards.

P.A.T. MOTHER WAX! I mean P.A.T. and Mother on New Wax

On this episode of the New Wax Podcast we talk about how Joe Joe Keys knows people…who I am not sure…but Luppy insists that Joe, knows people! We cover P.A.T. and their song “Elevator Music.”

Do know Lil’ Kim song on “Crush on You,” well the guys think that P.A.T. is on that type of sound…

Luppy once again explains what a “Southern Booty Band” is to me…guess I am kind of slow.

And the guys opened for 2 Live Crew?? What??

After that we dive into Mother. I like this band and I explain why.

Luppy admits to to being more Hip-Hop than rock, but you still need to know the key your working in.

We have another t-shirt in the works “New Wax Podcast: Rock out with your thingy out,” “New Wax Podcast: Bar Piano Players Hate you,” and “New Wax Podcast: Suck it FCC.”


So drop in and see what else we are talking about…Luppy used to write jingles?


P.A.T. is from Opelousas, Louisiana and has been seriously doing music since ’02 traveling just
about everywhere in the nation building up the awareness of his presence in the
music world!

With his 1st BIG project just recently hitting the masses (NO ROOFTOPS Pt.1 FUN-DA-MENTAL TRILL~O.G hosted by DJ BEDTYME357), you would thank that even if he wasn’t looking for another family, someone has to be ringing their phones off the hook for features and the option of making a major move here in the Music World!
Couldn’t believe this guy worked for SoSo Def/Virgin Records or did shows all over NYC, Fla, Vegas, Cali, Texas, Various other places & of course Louisiana? Well if not check into it on his myspace.com and youtube pages -/WHATCHAKNO- and you will see Louisiana’s Finest on the stage with Snoop
Dogg, Dougie Fresh, Jazze Pha, Lil Wayne, Slim Thug, David Banner, JadaKiss, JD
and Nelly and im sure you get the drift that somethings bound to happen! The
music is witty and nothing short of AMAZING, “if it sounds UnBELIEVEable just
Believe ME it is, No Rooftops is just saying im here, WATCH WHEN I TAKE YOU





When you hear the word “Mother,” what comes to mind? The word in itself is strong, forceful, and commanding, while bringing about a life giving, nurturing feeling. This group of four from the New York metropolitan area encompasses the above and much more. From the stage, Mother is in charge, much like in the household. The energy and confidence is what drives each performance of their heavy, groove-driven aural fix. Meanwhile, the songs will scoop you up by the hips and hold you in place searching for more once the last note settles.

Formed in the spring of 2011, these newborns have grown fast enough to fulfill the duties of their moniker in a very short time. Upon asking, the guys might tell you they met on E-Harmony, or in a Guatemalan jail cell. The truth: the perfect combination of being in the right place with the right people at the right time. Vocalist Nick Fargo and Bassist Johnny Bass had a previous musical relationship in the New Jersey based Zodiac. The dissolution of this group sparked an introduction to guitarist Mike Gowen, fresh off the bus in NYC eager to find a match. While attempting the combination of a second guitar player, drummer Anthony Sciasci migrated north on the Turnpike with a passion for the heavy grooves that drive the machine they call Mother.

Mother prides itself on its internal dissonance. Hence the name of their debut release, Dissonant Young. Upon meeting it was hard to get a feel for what road their sound would take. These fellas closed their eyes, and let it take over. A listener may be able to pick out bits and pieces of individual influences, but as a whole, this is something new. Taking hints from monsters like Sabbath and Zeppelin, passing it through the compositions of Queen or Muse, and surrounding it with bottom heavy reminders of Pantera and Soundgarden; these being just a few pieces of the sonic puzzle.  Tack on a well placed piano and a mixed vocal style marrying the likes of Layne Staley and Jeff Buckley, you are well on your way to a solution.

Reviewing Ill-literacy & King Kenoah!

This week on the New Wax Podcast Luppy fills us in on the stand-up comedy he has been doing (you can see more at www.youtube.com/luppy1). We talk about ill-iteracy and how he sounds like 90’s style hip-hop.

And I am pretty sure that Joe calls me old…who is he talking to??


Than we dive into King Kenoah. He is making that club music, what do the crew of New Wax think about that?

The few things that did come out of the conversation is that every song has to have a good hook, as well as a good web presences. Joe (who is pushing 30k followers on Twitter) talks about how important web sites and social media are for independent musicians.


We come up with our first t-shirt  “New Wax Podcast: Word to YOUR Mother,” and Joe professes Lil’John is his personal hero!

You can find all the guys from Ill-iteracy on twitter:



You can also find out more about them on Facebook andYouTube


As for King KeNoah, he started his career in California at a young age. Not knowing how to produce or engineer at the time, his talent as a rapper granted him access to some of the local studios in his neighborhood. He quickly became known for his delivery and stinging rap style and his ability to connect with those in and out of the streets. This popularity made him known as the go to guy when other artists needed to cross over into the pop scene. His mass appeal to all sectors of society grew his fan-base exponentially.


Building on his rapping skills in the studio, he began to pay careful attention to the mix and mastering engineers; learning about EQ, compression, serial/parallel and mid-side buss processing, along with other studio techniques the fans are not privilege to. He developed his engineering skills and began to mix and master all of his own music, along with those of other artists. This created a more personal experience for him with his music and he began to write songs that involved some of the most personal aspects of his life for all to hear, love, and hate.


This new approach rejuvenated his career and caused energy to surge throughout his fan-base. He quickly developed some hard core, die hard fans throughout California. He continued building upon his skill set: rapping evolved into songwriting, learning visual communication through photography & videography, and engineering become producing and sound designing. At this crucial point when he picked up the craft of production and he took on the responsibility of making the melody and studying music theory did he become a musician, and not just a rapper. The industry quickly took notice and the executives began talking about this rising star.


This unique personal experience that his fans have with him through his music is currently unavailable in the music scene where 10,20, even 30 people maybe involved with the creation of the song, not including the promotion team. King KeNoah is directly involved in every step of the musical process, directs every decision that’s made, and processes every connection with the fans. His music is an extension of him and that is his gift to the world.


“We are born to make a difference, in our lives and those of others. Hopefully my music will make people question their beliefs and attitudes and begin to look at how to fix the problems we collectively experience. The youth are our future, but we, are the creators of theirs.”
