Lorna Brown goes head to head with whatever scares her, she's bold and brave, but that's because she's fearful and wants to face that fear. She reminded us all this year that fear doesn't make us live longer, in fact, it just holds us back from the life we want to live.

In volume IV of Start Today, we look at the hardcore history and influence of the Misfits from 1977-83. Where did their sound come from, what bands inspired them and how did their look, theme, and music evolve to make them one of the biggest icons in punk. We also take a unique look at 1976-77 and how that year birthed four significant debut records from bands that would birth the influence not only for the Misfits but many groups to come from all sub-genres of punk music. In part two of Start Today Mark Brickey and Biggie explore the business model of the Misfits and ask is the time right for another theatrical punk band to form, to break through all the noise of 2017.

Featuring an all new introduction with Mark and David breaking down how this episode rose through the ranks to be one of the Best from 2017 (so far).

Start Today - Music Business Inspiration Podcast

On the first episode of Start Today co-hosts Mark Brickey and Biggie breakdown the 1989 Gorilla Biscuits track “Start Today” and go line by line trying to fully understand the songs greater meaning and influences that it had on their lives. However, before we get to breaking down the walls of this inspiration, first Mark provides a rich audio documentary explaining the influences, origin and history of the short lived New York Hard Core super group the Gorilla Biscuits. 

Talking Points

  • Controlling your temper, not blowing up like you used to and realizing work isn’t worth getting mad over. 
  • Understanding that you’re never too old to hangout and the importance of finding your tribe. 
  • Location, location, location, where you are plays a huge part in how you play. 
  • Staying one step ahead of your current career and always planning for the next big thing. 
  • Not just working hard, but working hard toward a focused life plan. 
  • Procrastinating solves nothing, only creates more work. 
  • There is no seniority in the arts, which leaves zero room for laziness. 
  • The importance of movement, keeping moving to keep surviving. 
  • Trusting your gut, you always know what’s right. 
  • Put in the hours, it will always show in the work.
  • The importance of saying sorry face to face. 
  • Time is your enemy, friend and greatest love. 

Circle of Trust

Mark talks about his lessons learned from both the song Start Today and the creating the first podcast episode. As well as plays audio that didn’t make the final public cut.
