Ep. 046: Random Task/Armor For Sleep w/ Ben Jorgensen

By Mike Doyle

Welcome everyone to This Was The Scene, the podcast that takes a look back at the late 90s / early 2000 Punk scene, I am your host, Mike Doyle. Random Task was a punk band from NJ who frequented hall shows all across the NJ scene. Ben Jorgensen was the drummer but eventually left the band to front Armor for Sleep who got signed to Equal Vision, toured their asses off and eventually decided to close shop. If you haven’t heard Car Underwater then you should go on Spotify and listen to it as soon as this episode is over because it’s the shatttttt. Random Task was the younger band in the scene who were solid dudes to hang out with any time I saw them at shows. I typically talked to Ben and Evan and still think Evan’s write up of my band’s CD for his zine Braceface was shit and he should go back and do a better one. I reached out to Ben and asked if he’d like to talk about summers passed and he said that he would like that. And this is what we talked about. Peeing on the Hollywood sign Going to the same school as Josh and Gabe from Humble His first show at Teaneck American Legion The Braceface Zine Making a business plan to go on tour Delvecchio's sweet sweet foot The Juliana Theory story AGAINq Starting Armor for Sleep Opening for Linkin Park And a ton more Before we begin, this week’s episode is sponsored by my animation company drive 80 studios.
