In rock-n-roll there’s often times four or more sides to each story. Today on the USpeakBelleville? podcast I interview Greg Latinette and Tony Mayr, respectively, drummer and bass and guitar players in Belleville Illinois punk band Max Load. The band just reissued their LP along with a CD, DVD, poster and liner notes. It was recorded in 1978.

Greg and Tony discuss the formation of the band in the late 70’s and their friendships with Terri Jones and Mike Yaffe and others in the Belleville and St Louis music scene.  Be sure and scroll down to see images from the StL punk scene of the 70’s featuring Max Load.Listen in!
