What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 99 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part VIII - Gary Numan/Tubeway Army - Replicas w/ Special Guest Josh Carlsen

October 14th, 2017

We're continuing our re-visitation of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life. This time we're delving into nihilism and a dystopian future when we discuss Gary Numan/Tubeway Army's second studio album, 1979's "Replicas". And we're bringing Josh Carlsen along for the ride. "Replicas" was a bit of a shift from Tubeway Army's first album, and this shift would propel the rest of Gary Numan's career. But what of this album? Was it synthpop/darkwave masterpiece that greatly influenced electronic and industrial music or was it a collection of mostly forgettable songs that ripped off Kraftwerk? Tune in to find out. Plus we read your fan mail.

Check out Josh's band, Loose Fuse, right here.

Episode 85 - Versus Month, Part II - Yazoo (Upstairs at Eric’s) vs. Depeche Mode (A Broken Frame)

July 8th, 2017

It's "Part Deux" of "Versus Month", where we take a look at albums released at about the same time by former band members and see which one is better. This time we're going to 1982 and we're asking that musical question, "what happens when a band's principal songwriter leaves because his first band was getting too popular only to have his second band become even more popular?" when we delve into Yazoo's debut album "Upstairs at Eric's" and Depeche Mode's sophomore album "A Broken Frame". What do we think of these albums? Tune in to find out. Plus we read more of your fan mail.
