Episode 223: The Bollweevils w/ Dr. Daryl Wilson

The Bollweevils is a punk band from Chicago. They formed during the Naked Raygun era which was where the band members met and also, for whom they eventually opened. The group released a number of albums on Dr. Strange Records; though, their first, minor releases were on Underdog Records (Chicago). The group’s current record label, Go Deaf Records LLC, is owned and operated by the band. The Bollweevils released a new album, “Essential,” on Red Scare Industries in 2023. It was their first album release in 14 years.

These guys have come up a lot in interviews so I thought it would be awesome to talk to Daryl, he agreed, and this is what we chat about:

  • Playing with the Adolescents
  • Making the newer version of Bottomless Pit
  • Naked Raygun
  • Getting on Dr Strange
  • face to face
  • Never playing the Metro again
  • Getting kicked off Riot Fest
  • The ABC7 appearance
  • Why the latest record isn’t on Dr. Strange
  • And a ton more
