Interview with Marty McCoy of Bobaflex

A listener (KARNOV) summed up Marty McCoy’s appearance on our show by saying, "Y’all sounded like a bunch of friends having a beer at the bar talking about music."  Another listener (Carla) IM’d me and said, "I love the haphazard fluidity that is this show."  I couldn’t have said it better.

I would like to say a couple of things before leaving you with the audio.

First, I was going to write a synopsis, but since what you’re about to listen to is devoid of trajectory, it will sound better than it looks on paper.  As far as keywords go, some of the names mentioned were Papa Roach, Nickelback, Nonpoint, Sevendust, Alter Bridge, Tom Petty, Life Of Agony and the list goes on and on.

Second, we’ll have Marty McCoy back on in the future.

I love it when passion can be heard in someone’s voice.  And believe me, Bobaflex wouldn’t be around today if they were lacking in that department.  True warriors, they’ve managed not only to persevere, but to evolve.  I’d go into detail and use a ton of scholarly words and annoying metaphors, but just listen to the show.  It’s great and I’m sure you’ll love it.

Bobaflex is currently promoting their latest album, Hell in my Heart, which features the absolutely slamming single "Bury Me with My Guns On."

    I saw Bobaflex in 2005 at Jaxx. I was impressed. This band should be bigger.

    Add this band to the long list of bands I’ve heard about for years but never saw live or heard anything from.

    I’ll probably listen to this show. It’s the shows I have no hope for that usually turn out the best.

    How about those Jets?

    leftover-salmon,

    You haven’t been here in a while. I didn’t even have to check your email address to know it’s you. I had no doubt you’d choose such a posting name.

    Darius is a member of the show and writes for the site.

    I should ban you because I believe you spearheaded the campaign to change the name of Irving Plaza to The Fillmore. Do you put that on your resume?

    You’re still nothing more than a pompous jerk who knows nothing about this business.

    I have no clue how or why anyone reads your crap or listens to it.

    leftover-salmon,

    You’re entitled to your opinion. It’s wrong, but you’re entitled to it. You claim to know everything about the business and therefore I ask, if that’s the case, why has nearly every project you worked on lost money? I know plenty of qualified, passionate people that are out of work right now, and it disgusts me that you’ve pulled the wool over the eyes of so many. I’ll never know how anyone employs your services.

    The Fillmore East at Irving Plaza (cough cough) … explain that one, champ.

    Your comments about Keith Caputo are insensitive. Do you live inside his body? Do you know the hell he lived in throughout his life? Then why do you go and discredit his music like that? Complete bullsh*t. I’m never listening to this homophobic show ever again.

    You probably stopped listening to Judas Priest when you learned Rob was gay. Go back to your mother’s basement.

    Darius is right about the musical palate of people in respect to Nickelback. Drive through small town America – can you picture some of those people listening to anything else? C’mon now.

    I was never a fan of Bobaflex but found them to be intersting and boundaryless. Respect those dudes though.

    Their Sounds Of Silence cover is everything Marty said it was – link it in the post.

    819,

    I did not bat an eyelash when Rob Halford announced he was gay.

    819,

    You are an absolute blubbering fool. I don’t have any predispositions regarding homosexuals and treat each and every person I meet as their own individual entity. If your soul is burning from years of pent up rage/depression, you should seek the help of a professional in lieu of commenting on websites.

    I admire Keith Caputo for transitioning from male to female. It doesn’t change how I relate to his music, but it’s just a little “strange” from an entertainment perspective. And please, let’s not harp on “strange.” I just can’t think of another word. Take Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil, or Maria Brink from In This Moment – if they suddenly transitioned from female to male, you might “hear” their older music differently. It doesn’t mean I’m going to stop listening to Life Of Agony. It just means that sometimes, for a split second, I’ll “think” about Keith’s transition. That’s all. And if anyone tells you different, they’re lying.

    Gary Kid Carter,

    As a huge fan of the 1986 Mets, I love your choice of posting name. Welcome to the site.

    1) The Bobaflex cover of Simon and Garfunkel is great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xR-wrIyjsUc&feature=related AWESOME.

    2) Priest rules. Rob Halford rules. That is ALL that matters.

    3) Life of Agony is not my favorite band but I’ve always liked Keith. I loved how he changed his vocal delivery on Broken Valley even though the record garnered disappointing sales and the hardcore LOA fans complained.

    I even enjoyed that Christmas album he put out two years ago. Thank you, Darius, for that one.

    I’m unfamiliar with Broken Valley. If you can, please post some YouTube links.

    Black Stone Cherry kicks ass live but Blame It On The Boom Boom sucks.

    In one song they went from a modern day hard rocking somewhat Skynyrd to Nickelback with a fat singer.

    I understand entirely what Andrew means about Keith Caputo. I feel the exact same way. We all knew Rob was gay before the announcement. He may not have had those George Michael pink legwarmers in the Wake Me Up Before You Go Go Wham! video but come on.

    Right now just diggin’ on Bobaflex. Where were they my whole life? How did they play with all these bands and I never saw them? I stopped the drugs 5 years ago so it can’t be me.

    You did an entire show with this guy and I have absolutely no idea what he was promoting or why he was even there. Your show is pointless like water and mushrooms.

    This reeks with sarcasm. Was that a Weight Watchers low blow as well?

    You are clearly a moron. I’m not here to name-call you but seriously – you know that’s not what he meant so why start a fight?

    Dennis,

    I’m impressed you picked up on that. It took me a few reads to see what Arched was getting at too.

    Vinny,

    Thank you. Nowadays, people are critical of everything. It could be 200 degrees outside and you can say, “It’s hot out here.” You’ll always find someone to disagree.
