Young Hardcore Guitarist Will Never Be A Clone Of Jim Rome
« on: June 29, 2009, 07:21:04 pm »
ESPN doesn't necessarily come to mind when you hear Iron Age's punishing brand of crossover-schooled hardcore. That doesn't mean the Austin, Texas quintet doesn't appreciate their sports. We spoke with guitarist Wade Allison about the group's upcoming 'The Sleeping Eye' album, but he had something to get off his chest. "I got home from work yesterday and I wanted to watch a show on ESPN called 'Pardon the Interruption,' but it wasn't on because they were covering some golf s--- so I had to watch the end of 'Rome is Burning' instead," started Allison.

"Jesus Christ is Jim Rome a f---ing loser or what? I mean, everyone must know he's an extreme douchebag at this point," the guitarist spewed forth.

But he wasn't done yet! "He spent the entire final 15 minutes of his show ripping on Olympian Michael Phelps for growing some ridiculous mustache. I don't know but I guess Rome's writers forgot that his whole image is based on his OWN dumb mustache!" Rome is known for his confrontational interview style, so Noisecreep suggests a one-time "Rome vs. Iron Age" ESPN spot. We have a feeling Allison would be game for that.

Hey, the radio show is great.  When Rome is on his game, and isn't so freaking condescending, there's no one better.  But his television show really does suck.  I don't know why anyone would watch it.

Wade Allison probably got run as a caller once and now he's pissed.  Or he's sent 100 emails and never got one read.

2nd that.  I am almost willing to bet if you went out and randomly picked guys on the street and asked them which name was one they knew Allison or Rome more would know who the hell Rome was.

Attention bands looking to create a stir:

Ripping Jim Rome for his 'stache will get you right back on your couch with your can of warm beer, not in the headlines.  Try ripping Obama or something.

Rome's TV show is nothing special, but you're telling me this guy...from the band in that clip is calling out Rome? Riiiiight...That band pretty much sucks. Now we know why we've never heard of this guy.
