With Oscar's pension for the pompous and Chad's all-American edge, growing popularity launched the boys from weeknight PM Drive to Midday hot talk on Baltimore's Live 105.7. In 2005, Big O and Dukes also became the first major market terrestrial talk show to publish their shows podcasts on iTunes. With over 1 million downloads within 6 months of launching the shows weekly podcast, this current incarnation is its purest form to date. From politics to pop-culture, each approaches subject matter from very different perspectives. The podcast format gives the guys an unbridled medium to relay their opinions and their frustrations anything and everyhing. So pull up a seat, plug in your headphones and step into the studio with Chad Dukes, Oscar Santana and Drab T-Shirt; by the end you'll have laughed yourself right out of your chair, but have gained a window into the lives of three new friends.
All Day, The Pietasters' first album of new tracks in five years, captures the high energy, brotherly camaraderie and attention to detail on which they've built their rock-steady name as an explosive live attraction. Traveling the miles along a star-kissed path, the first break came early for D.C.'s ska darlings, when they landed a 1992 tour opening for ska originals, Bad Manners. In 1997, Rancid's Tim Armstrong signed them to Hellcat/Epitaph where they recorded two albums with producer Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion): the genre-defining Willis (SPIN Magazine called it "An equal opportunity dancehall crasher - part ‘60s keg rock, part 2Tone and part Motown") and Awesome Mix Tape #6 (CMJ noted it for "lacing a Stax shout-out feel with Caribbean rhythms"). The soul-charged Turbo was released in 2002 by Fueled by Ramen. The Pietasters shared bills with NOFX and Less Than Jake on the epic '98 and '99 Warped Tours, and followed with a stateside run with punk legend Joe Strummer Three years later, they worked as James Brown's back-up band for one surreal evening (All Day was produced by James Brown's engineer, Todd Harris). Not bad for a bunch of guys who started out as a teenaged underground band from D.C. The Pietasters have been served well by the signs they've encountered along the road during their 17 years as a band. As the sun comes up on All Day, the experience and commitment that defines The Pietasters as an entity should find friends among the faithful as well as to first-timers to the ska-soul sound.
If there has ever been a way to describe Sunny Ledfurd, it has got to be his ability to defy categorization. Born in Chattanooga TN and growing up in Gaston County NC, he taught himself guitar at age 15. He knew then that playing the guitar was how he would make a living. Inspired by Guns n Roses, Snoop Dog & David Allan Coe among many, Sunny's songs continually mix genres and push the envelope. "I've always liked artists that you can tell they have something to say. They're not just singing some words 'cause it sounds cool." Never one to shy away from a good time... drinking and women are involved in much of the music. With songs like 'I Don't Remember Last Night', 'Pontoon Boat', 'Adderral', and 'Myrtle Beach', Sunny takes you through life in the south as he sees it and lives it. With 6 self produced / self released (Ledfurd Recurds) albums since 2003 Sunny has plenty to tell and shows no signs of slowing down
