Long before Scott's instagram handle had me laughing my ass off every day, he put out a documentary called "Salad Days" which took an in-depth look at one of (if not THE) most important music scene's in US history. We talk in depth about his process and approach to this film, his evolution as a teenage fan to collaborator with heroes like Ian MacKaye, Wayne Kramer, Brian Baker, Henry Rollins, Dave Grohl, and beyond. How his love of music journalism helped him capture the magic of Creem magazine in his follow-up documentary: "Creem: America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine", all the way through his new project that sounds simply incredible.
If you are a fan of Minor Threat, Bad Brains, MC5, and real music then this episode is for you.
