Interview: The Isotopes  Tracks: Head, Houseboat

Episode 38 of D.I.Wireless podcast features a chat with Dan and Evan from The Isotopes. Although they’re known as the worlds greatest punk rock baseball club, let’s set things straight – they are a punk band. A fast, tight and catchy-as-fuck punk band.

It just so happens they love baseball and like any other band, the songs they write are about the things they love. That means baseball. They have released a bunch of EPs and 7inches including one with Red Scare Records, played with just about all their musical heroes and have even featured on ESPN.

The local support slot trap, the meaning of a real ‘gimmick’, and sports place in punk rock – we cover a lot of ground in this interview.

Just don’t ever ask them if they think they can write songs about baseball forever.
