Duane Denison (Tomahawk, The Jesus Lizard) on The MetalSucks Podcast #378
Tomahawk and The Jesus Lizard guitarist Duane Denison is our guest this week! We discuss Tomahawk’s new album, Tonic Immobility, the 20-year anniversary of their self-titled debut, how he first presented the idea for the band to Mike Patton and what it’s been like working with him over the years. Duane also shares his thoughts on what touring will be like when it returns, his day job working at a library during the pandemic, the importance of practicing and improvising to generate new ideas as a songwriter, his thoughts on people who continue to go to extremes when it comes to their opinions, and historical patterns that help him understand the world today.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia hash out the financial killing The Mars Volta made on their new 18-LP box set, how streaming accounted for 83% of recorded music revenue in 2020, and Michael Sweet of Stryper’s comments that the Bible is in danger of being canceled.
