Geoff Garlock

Geoff Garlock is a writer/musician/podcaster/holder of many buckets. His work has appeared on Adult Swim, IFC, MTV, SNL Weekend Update, Wondery, Revolver Magazine and many other places lost to the ages of time and the content gods.

Along with 108.9 The Hawk, Geoff currently does The Cannon Canon Podcast (where he talks about the films created by the Cannon Film Group), Docs Till Death (a podcast where he goes over punk documentaries), What's That From (a podcast where he remembers old comedy and talks about how it relates to his career and therapy..trust him it works) and Geoff also used to do a podcast called Worst Gig Ever (where he talked to comedians and musicians about how terrible it is to be a musician and a comedian).

If you do not know him from his comedy wares, you might know him from his musical wares. Geoff was the bass player in the
influential hardcore band Orchid and the bass player in maybe less influential but still liked by some Vice Recording Artists Panthers.

He also played guitar in the metal band Low Estate and bass in the hardcore band Ritual Mess. And piles of other new usually brutal music projects...except for his ambient records. Geoff contains multitudes.

But most days you can find Geoff with his wife and kid who are sitting with him on the couch watching movies and listening to him talk about Genesis too much.
