Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Nov 24, 2021

Minus the Bear was a fascinating band for so many reasons.  So much talent crammed into some of the catchiest tunes of the last two decades.  So I was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak to Jake Snider about all things MTB and beyond for many many reasons.  

We talk gear, writing to loops, reflecting back on their expansive career, audiophile habits, the curation of their "Farewell" LP that just dropped, and so much more.

You can listen to Minus the Bear wherever you listen to music and order the vinyl for "Farewell" off Suicide Squeeze's site.

If you want to hear more of THIS conversation, the extended version is available to patrons on all tiers at the Rigs of Dad Patreon page.  More gear talk, more stories, more laughs, and much more.  You can even take some deep dives with more of my guests, get some Patreon exclusive swag, and more by checking out the Rigs of Dad Patreon page OR just download the Patreon ap, search for Rigs of Dad, and you can support creators like me and so many more in the process!  

Head over to Age of Ruin's Instagram and dive into some of the best thrash I have ever heard.  Their new album is coming soon.  It's produced by Mike Schleibaum of Darkest Hour and is just a relentless and refreshing metal cleanse.
