Show Notes

Those kids will never live up to society’s expectations- they're just a bunch of Rich Kids on LSD! On this episode we talk to Christopher Rest, the guitarist for RKL and Lagwagon.  Christopher dives headfirst into how he got into playing music, the formation of RKL, and their crazy adventures during the 1980s.  He explains the evolution of RKL’s various lineup changes and covers how the recordings with Mystic Records and Epitaph came about.  Christopher also talks about the band’s low points during the 1980s and how things changed for the better after they returned from their second European tour, ultimately leading to their first breakup.  The 1990s were a rollercoaster ride for him given the reformation of RKL and how different versions of the group garnered mix reviews.  Finally, he covers how he was asked to join Lagwagon and where things are today post pandemic.  If you are a fan of NARDCORE, RKL and Lagwagon, this show is a mandatory listen for you.
