Squared Circle Pit #32 - David Lo Pan Talks About Creating Metal Entrance Themes For Wrestlers
Our guest is from across the pond on this edition of Squared Circle Pit – we talk to David Lo Pan, a compose who has scored tons of music for independent pro wrestlers including War Machine, Drew Galloway, Bram, Joe Coffey and more. David talks about his process for creating a song, some of his favorite classic entrance themes, watching WWF and WCW during the Monday Night Wars and anticipating hearing his music at the Tokyo Dome. We also play some music from his synthwave band, The Van Dammage.
