    In the inaugural episode of Hooked On Stereophonics, we talk to James Alex, frontman of fuzzed-out soft-hearted dirty punk band Beach Slang, about The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Bukowski, the importance of an artist's "trash period," and much more. Editor's note: This episode was recorded live backstage at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn before a Beach Slang show. For the first ten minutes, you can hear bits of Field Mouse's soundcheck in the background that we were not able to edit out. Sorry! Beach Slang's new album, "The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us," is available now via Polyvinyl Records: http://bit.ly/1P3zRN3
