Michigan's Child Bite draw heartily from Black Flag and the Dead Kennedys, as well as the golden years of Amphetamine Reptile and SubPop. In a lot of ways, the band is a throwback to a time when a band could make a hellacious racket without getting pigeonholed into reductive genre descriptors.

I spoke to Child Bite guitarist/vocalist Shawn Knight about his band's history, working with Steve Albini on their latest album Blow Off The Omens, and how they got involved with Phil Anselmo's Housecore Records. I also asked Shawn about Child Bite's fun music videos, which feature B-Movie themes and various underground legends.

My thanks again to Shawn for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
