Diarrhea Planet Profiled in First Episode of Loyola Marymount's Sound Bites Series [Fresh Vid]



Is Diarrhea Planet too poppy to be punk? Too mean to be pop? Shall we all agree to call the Nashvillian six-piece "arena punk"? The above clip may or may not actually answer any of those questions. Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles has a student-run television network called ROAR, and in the first episode of their Sound Bites series, they profile DP — the punk-popsters' genesis at Belmont, the moment they won over Jake Orrall of JEFF the Brotherhood and Infinity Cat Records, a performance of "Kids." Why the pride of Music City's house-showin' punk-rock scene is featured in the first installment of an L.A.-based series that "works in conjunction with local bands" I can't say, but at a tight nine minutes, it's a pretty thorough little profile. Have a watch.
