Boilermaker vs. Swami’s

We attempted to interview Tim Semple and Rich Sanderson of Boilermaker at Swami’s, a popular surf spot in North County San Diego. This is what happened.

Boilermaker released three LPs, numerous singles and a compilation, “Leucadia”. They are considered one of the progenitors of Emo, a genre they have mixed emotions about. After all, they named themselves after a very non-emo Jesus Lizard song.
