Knocked Conscious 2/14/2024: A conversation w/ Kevin Mackie, Covid vaccine protester

On July 8, 2022, a group protesting against COVID vaccines being given to 5-11 year-olds at a vaccine clinic at the children's Discovery Museum in Acton, MA was assaulted by local resident Fred Smith (the man in the video in the brown shirt). Smith was charged with 3 counts of Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (a pipe), 1 count of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon (a pipe), Assault and Battery, and Disorderly Conduct. On February 1, 2023, all of Smith's charges were dropped with the exception of the Assault and Battery charges. For those, he agreed to 9 months of pretrial probation consisting of anger management classes. Kevin Mackie, one of the protestors (the man in the video with the long beard), defended the group against Smith's assault. For it, he is charged with Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (a megaphone), Assault and Battery, and Trespass. Despite the prosecution possessing the video of the interaction showing that Smith was the first aggressor, with witne

Knocked Conscious (11/20/2023): A conversation w/ Wheatus’ Brendan B. Brown

Brendan B. Brown of Wheatus joins Mark for a great conversation. https://www.wheatus.com/ It's hard to believe it's been over 20 years since Wheatus released their debut album and still ubiquitous single "Teenage Dirtbag.” Yes, that’s right - Dirtbag is no longer a teenager. In honor of this anniversary, Wheatus are releasing a new and expanded edition of their now classic debut album. Says Brendan B Brown, “We found demos of ten more songs from throughout the band’s history, that had such an album-one vibe that they never made it on to our more recent records. So now we’re giving them a proper chance to be heard. The twenty-song version of the album will feature the originally-conceived track listing and sequence, plus the extra ten songs that have finally found a home on a record.”  Pandemics notwithstanding, the band continues a seemingly endless tour cycle.  2019 took Wheatus on a coast-to-coast, almost entirely sold-ou
