The Story of MIAMI hardcore/punk band CHOCOLATE GRASSHOPPER

Chocolate Grasshopper was a mid-late 1980's hardcore/punk from Miami, FL. Three of the four original band members: Brent Wilson (vocals/guitar), later formed Radon (Gainesville), Andre Serafini (drums), later formed Quit (Miami) and Mike Wetherill (bass) tell the story of Chocolate Grasshopper from the band's origins, the Partyin' With Beardhead demo cassette, shows at the Cameo Theatre, skateboarding, and a lot more. Ray "Bones" Arronte had a work obligation and was unfortunately unable to be present for the interview. [Episode: 56 - Recorded 07/15/2023]
