Joining me for episode 130 is Sumo Cyco, who we first heard about in episode 113 with Darryl Hurs! Matt and Skye graciously take time out of their vacation to talk about the history of the band, how they met each other when Skye was a pop singer signed with Capitol records, and hired Matt as her guitar player. We also hear about the knowledge they gained from the corporate machine, touring with Brittany Spears, and the world of major labels, that informed them of how to run an indie band as a business. Finally Matt talks us through his guitar gear, Skye talks about her various head injuries, and we hear just how much passion the guys have for music and the deeper meaning that fuels everything they do.
