Following the break-up of The Connie Dungs in 2000, guitarist/vocalist Brandon Tussey started a new project with a less pop oriented direction called A Radio With Guts. The name appears to have been taken from a Charles Bukowski poem of the same name. First, Tussey recorded an acoustic collection of old and new songs for Knock Knock Records. Then, fellow members of The Connie Dungs Chris and Wayne Griffith joined him for the 2002 Knock Knock release Beat Heart Sweet Stereo. In 2005, the Griffiths left the band, and bassist Zakk Spears was added.
On July 24, 2007, Tussey announced that The Connie Dungs have reformed and will be again playing shows and releasing records. Fellow member of both bands Josh McKinley added that ARWG planned to coexist with The Connie Dungs as a separate project. In September 2008, McKinley announced that work is continuing on a third ARWG album.
a radio with guts is good music for suicide and drinking….
listen to them before you kill yourself
ALSO, A RADIO WITH GUTS was the moniker for all music recorded by J. Cloud and J. Videogame in the southwestern part of Idaho, USA. When J.Cloud became an adult, it remained the moniker for musics made by J. Videogame.
Many recordings were released on Boise's Fort Hazel Magic record label, with a few scattered compilation tracks from various other labels. There were three full length releases, a cassette-only "Taster's Choice," cd "Sugat in Eleven Parts," and the cd "Trasch."
