Episode 174: Dog Pound w/ Jefferson Campoli

Before we start, if you’re company has a hard time explaining what it does you can hire me to do that in 60-90 seconds with an explainer animation. Go to drive80.com or email me at mike@drive80.com to learn more.

Dog Pound were early 90’s punks with a van-load of attitude from Passaic County, NJ. They toured the US from dive bars to legion halls to basements to pizza joints.

Real quick, the connection we had wasn’t great so there are some spots where it sounds like the audio jumps around. That’s because there were random delays when Jeff was talking so some stories have weird transitions mid sentence.

I contacted him through his FB account, asked him to chat, he said yes, and this is what we talk about:

  • Not starting off punk rock
  • Getting told to grow his hair
  • What made them start putting on legion hall shows
  • Forgetting the words while playing live
  • Sound Exchange in Wayne, NJ
  • Playing with Jawbox
  • Having an edge as a band
  • King Dickley Kool
  • Getting soured by the scene change
  • The Heroine story and shit on the walls stories
  • And a ton more
