Author & Special Guests

On episode #78 of Dig Me Out, Jason brings a pick to the show - the 1999 album Through the Darkness by D Generation. Some might know lead singer Jesse Malin from his successful solo career, but with the recently reunited D Generation getting ready to release a new album soon, it's the perfect time to tackle the third album from this New York City punk rock outfit.

D Generation combine the snotty punk of the New York Dolls with power pop of Cheap Trick and '80s Sunset Strip bands. On some songs, it works like magic, on others... well, tune in to find out.
