Joey Cape & Marko DeSantis of Bad Astronaut

Joey Cape & Marko DeSantis of Bad Astronaut

This week we chat with the greatest band you’ve probably never heard of, and find out why you’ve never heard of them! Bad Astronaut members Joey Cape (of Lagwagon) and Marko DeSantis (of Sugarcult) join us for some cocktails, and explain why they never felt the need to promote this hidden gem of a band.


This week we chat with the greatest band you’ve probably never heard of, and find out why you’ve never heard of them! Bad Astronaut members Joey Cape (of Lagwagon) and Marko DeSantis (of Sugarcult) join us for some cocktails, and explain why they never felt the need to promote this hidden gem of a band. 

As the guys prepare to launch their vinyl reissues, we reflect back on the 20+ years that have made them Bad Astronaut. Joey & Marko bring us back to the early recordings, all the way to the most recent single, Wide Awake. We also go into detail about the really unique process of reverse engineering the Bad Astronaut masters to prepare for vinyl release. 

We also get into our guilty pleasure musical tastes and discuss the importance of having a broad interest in music genres. Plus Joey talks his battle against hard drives, we get into the Bad Astronaut cover of Linoleum, and.... an Avenged Sevenfold bluegrass album? Hold on, someone must of had too much to drink. Houston, we have a drinking problem! (If you get that reference, you’ll love this episode!)
