One Question Interviews: Radon

Dave Rohm (Radon)

SPB: What’s your favorite 1990s Radon song to play live?

Rohm: My favorite 1990’s Radon song to play live is called “Exhaustra.”  It’s a house-rocking metal song that reminds me of the bands that we grew up listening to in Gainesville, FL. It mostly reminds me of one of my favorite bands from Gainesville called The Doldrums.  The Doldrums played in the late ‘80s and were mixing punk and metal in a way that was different than thrash and different than metal-core.  It sounded Southern and badass. It had real soul but it was aggressive at the same time. 

I like “Exhaustra” because it really gets things started at a show. It unifies the band by the way the beat lays out. And it also hooks the crowd into what we are doing. 

The first two studio sessions we did as a band were released on two separate four-song 7”s that came out around 1991 or so.

If you can find them definitely pick them up because there were not that many pressed. 

These songs are also on our purple album (called We Bare All on No Idea Records).  This album has our first two studio sessions and a bunch of live tracks from the early ‘90s in Gainesville. 

You can also hear them at our bandcamp site at Radon1.bandcamp.com
