Interview: Jim Lindberg

  Radio Bungalo is pleased to present an interview with Jim Lindberg, lead singer of Pennywise. Besides being the vocalist of one of the biggest bands since the mid-’90s punk explosion, Lindberg is an accomplished author, recently releasing his acclaimed memoir, “Punk Rock Dad.” The book sounds like it might be a silly coming of age story about a out of control punk, but in actuality it is a look at life on the...

Interview: Silverstein

Formed in 2000, this band of Canadian natives was quintessential in transforming Victory Records from an underground straightedge hardcore label to an emo-core giant. Silverstein’s music eschews traditional power-punk and screamo by blending melodic vocals with monster guitar tones that recall Texas Is The Reason and early Ignite.  Life In A Bungalo caught up with singer Shane Told in the midst of a massive tour with melodic...

Soon after, Brandon “Manimal” Usher began offering mystery boxes for...

Ryan Heshka Interview on Juxtapoz

Ryan Heshka is an old soul trapped in the body of a 36-year-old. A Vancouver transplant via Manitoba, he has spent the better part of the last decade painting canvases featuring pin-up girls fighting space invaders, giant creatures battling for dominance, and outlandish landscapes that look like they were torn out of a 1930’s comic book.

UNKL: Innovation Through Kickass Design

I’ll admit it, I’m a late bloomer. The first time I heard of UNKL was at this year’s New York Toy Fair. Hiding between rows of uber-crappy kids’ stuff stood a small booth overflowing with some of the coolest figures I’ve ever seen. Little green robots with gas masks, monstrous giants with little white heads, and cute round-headed creatures, the UNKL booth was a vinyl toy wonderland. So I began chatting up...
