The Bull Pit Podcast is Back on iTunes

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Bull_Lee_Skull_1I decided to re-submit my podcast to the iTunes Music Store, and within a day they had me back up. Pretty cool. Go here to stream or subscribe via iTunes.

Also, my S.E.X. Department interview is back on for this Sunday. As it turns out, the Captain of the S.E.X. Department, Kelly (Trash) Mendess, was sick with a fever this past weekend and they tried to reach me.

I have a feeling it’s gonna be worth the wait.

Labor Day

Monday, September 7th, 2009

I spent most of my three day weekend working on music. I was supposed to interview the Italian glam band S.E.X. Department yesterday for my podcast, but they didn’t answer my Skype call at the appointed time. I was hoping for some awesome Spinal Tap-like quotes with Italian accents. They wear cop uniforms and makeup. Their myspace page has some great lines like “So, join up!!! Become S.E.X. DEPARTMENT officer – PussyMaster! It’s your time!” and this is their bio:

If you’re an old fuckin’ rocker, hopeless glamster, bloody blood sucker, renegade cop, postatomic dusty bastard; if you’re pissed off rookie, half beast, last but not least, lookin’ for some luck but all you want tonight is fuck, dirty junkie, creature stuck in the darkness; if you like countersteering, high speed, beautiful girls with big boobs; if you’re seaman, nasty whore, little bitch or an old witch, with no money or really rich, noble or beggar and your parents with your relatives don’t give a fuck about you, Sex Department is the family you’re lookin’ for.

My favorite song by them is called “Rock and Roll”. You should check it out. The lyrics for the main hook are:“Cos I’m only a little Italian boy lookin for some love, and all I want tonight is a fuck!”

Maybe they’ll re-schedule.
