Episode 15: Benjamin Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan / Giraffe Tongue Orchestra / Partysmasher inc.)
Benjamin Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan talks with Daniel P Carter. What was initially intended as a discussion about the bands new album 'Dissociation' quickly turned into a reflection on the bands career and what it would mean to make the decision to end a 20+ year long career and walk away leaving the bands legacy in great form, with a critically acclaimed body of work.

Please pick up their new album 'Dissociation', because aside from being their last will and testament, it is a fantastic album. Go and see them play if they are touring near you. They are incredible.

My portrait of Ben is oil, acrylic, Spray paint and pencil in a Moleskine sketchbook, thats like 7" square I guess. At the time of the podcast he had a huge black eye where he'd been clocked in the face by Greg's microphone. I wanted to paint him with it for posterity. Seemed appropriate.
And if you were expecting the Manson / Twiggy podcast, dont sweat it, it'll happen in the future and it'll be rad.
