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

Episode 73 - Glam Month, Part IV - The Darkness - Permission to Land

February 25th, 2017

If Glam was supposed to have died in the 1970's, these guys certainly didn't get the memo. Join us today as we at Iron-Cast close out Glam Month by delving into the debut album from The Darkness, 2003's "Permission to Land". When this was released this was so uncool that it became cool, and was quite a change of pace from all other rock acts of its time. But what of this album? Was this album an underappreciated Glam throwback or was it a prime example why The Darkness is seen as a flash-in-the-pan? Tune in to find out.

Episode 72 - Glam Month, Part III - T. Rex - Electric Warrior

February 18th, 2017

Did you really think we were going to have a Glam Month without T. Rex? Today we're continuing our month-long look at Glam when we delve into T. Rex's 1971 release "Electric Warrior". "Electric Warrior" has often been cited as the beginning of Glam with frontman Marc Bolan becoming the King of Glam. But what of this album? Is it a Glam masterpiece or is it an overrated collection of 70's background music? Tune in to find out.

Episode 71 - Glam Month, Part II - David Bowie - Aladdin Sane

February 11th, 2017

You asked for it and now you're getting it! Our dozens of fans have asked us to do another David Bowie review, and we're delivering. Today we're continuing Glam Month by discussing Bowie's sixth studio album, 1973's "Aladdin Sane". Hyped as "Ziggy Goes to America", "Aladdin Sane" became a bit of a sister album to the previous year's "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars". But what of this album? Is Aladdin Sane Ziggy Stardust's crazy party-loving American cousin (bigger, heavier, sexier), or is Aladdin Sane a rushed and coked-up lesser clone of Ziggy Stardust? Tune in to find out.

February 4th, 2017

Join us today when we at Iron-Cast spend February putting on our platform shoes, bell-bottoms and slapping on some make-up and glitter. That's right, it's Glam Month here at Iron-Cast, and we're kicking it off by delving into Slade's third album, 1972's "Slayed?". So, what of this album? Is it a much overlooked glam masterpiece or is it a prime example of why Slade never really made it in the US? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes sixty-one to seventy.
