Episode 128: Gobstopper In-Studio

In certain circles, Jawbreaker is the equivalent of The Rolling Stones or The Who: a revered band that taught some people how to love, make friends, host parties, have a good time, get sad, and ultimately, find your place in the world around you. What was surprising to me wasn’t that there is a Jawbreaker cover band – wonderfully named Gobstopper, I should add – but that there aren’t more bands like this.

As part of the final Pledge Drive 2014 broadcast, Gobstopper dropped by the KPSU studios to give Closet Radio Listeners a magnificent taste of what it is like to have grown up on a band like this. These guys were high energy, friendly, excited to be playing, and really embody a DIY aesthetic that is as much fun as it is impressive. Using coconuts and duct tape, we were able to get them on the air in a fashion that matched this aesthetic, and created a two-hour broadcast that is not to be missed.
