Broadcaster are 3-piece rock band from long Island, NY. They recently released a 7″ on Jumpstart Records called ‘Tightrope Walker‘ and are playing Roboto tomorrow night with Relationships, Aspiga and Unraveler. My appreciation to drummer Anthony Vito for taking a few minutes to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • Van Halen, “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge”.
  • Your last album bought?
  • I scored a copy of “Goonies R Good Enough” on vinyl the other day.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • Beastie Boys, “Check Your Head”.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • I think we can all agree that “Chinese Democracy” wasn’t worth the wait.
  • First concert attended?
  • Blood Sweat and Tears at Brookhaven Amphitheater on Long Island. I was 6, so I thought they rocked.
  • Last concert?
  • Dramarama in Brooklyn. John Easdale jumped off the stage and fell on me after the set.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Probably The Rolling Stones at Roseland in NYC. I was spitting distance from Mick Jagger. Glorious.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • I honestly can’t think of one. Must have been bad enough to block it from my memory for good.
  • Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • I just hope we have a better show than The Wonders did.

Thanks, Anthony. It still amazes me how many times Guns ‘N Roses are mentioned in these Q&A’s and almost always in the ‘disappointed’ category.
