Episode 53 - Brian Venable ( LUCERO )

Brian Venable from Lucero is certainly not the first name you think of when you think of the militant Hardline movement. But before he was playing to a diehard fanbase all over the world, he was Bald Bry singing back ups on the Raid 7”. Needless to say, Damian is pretty stoked to be recording this one.
