We welcome SoCal punk legend & legitimate scientist, Alfie Agnew to the podcast. Alfie spent his youth with his brothers Rikk & Frank defining the SoCal punk sound. We talk about that and what it takes to create a new musical landscape. He was a vet by the time he was a junior in high school. But one book changed the entire trajectory of his life. After decades in academia, writing pieces like A Trace Formula for a Family of Jacobi Matrices, Analysis and its Applications, he began making music again. And, as seems to be the case with Alfie, one night set in motion the fate of his new band, Professor and the Madman, with Sean Elliott, & Paul Gray and Rat Scabies of The Damned. They’ve just released their 4th studio album and it is diverse.
