I couldn’t do a podcast from hell without also doing a heavenly podcast to balance it all. It’s funny, it was so much easier to find hellish songs than heavenly tunes, but I did it. After going through piles of home recorded music, I found a few songs with angels, gods, and other heavenly things we’ve all come to know and love.
First up is Mark Harvey and Rain Station doing, To Heaven, a sweet sweet song Mark wrote for his little baby girl when she was born. Awwwwwww. Then another band from Nobody Records: Beth Eyre and The Month of Sundays play their soft country rock tune: Angel On My Shoulder. Then Bay Area band Strip Karaoke sings us a sweet campfire song about the place where all good cowboys and cowgirls go after they die in, Dance With Clouds.
So there you have it, more amazing unsigned home recorded music all in an image enhanced podcast made specifically for iTunes listeners. During your little visit to Heaven, be sure to tell Saint Peter that Hoagie sent ya. Enjoy!
I’ve collected a bunch of home recorded tunes jam packed with demons, devils, and all things evil and hellish. Mitchell Vaillant improvises a hot and steamy twisted tale titled: El Diablo Fuego. Dan Hanrahan shares with us The Devil’s Advocate which is quickly followed by Tucker Fucker Katonah! and his advertisement for Fun House. Strip Karaoke appropriately ends the show waiting forever and ever at the Bus Stop To Hell.
So paint a giant pentacle in the middle of your floor, light a few candles, praise the all mighty lord Satan, and rock out to our Podcast from HELL ~
People just love sex, well, because that’s where people come from after all. So what could be better than a bunch of sexy songs for you all to enjoy. The subject of sex has always been such a funny thing to me. Why are people so freaked out by sex? Sex is somehow treated like it’s criminal, or worse, it’s treated so boringly. I mean TV shows us a million ways to kill each other, but only a couple ways to love one another. What’s up with that?
This sexy podcast us full of sexy guys and gals singing a sexy song or two. It gets rather explicit at times, but that’s the fun of it.
The Amazing Love Spitoon from Portland Maine do an improvised song and dance called: Teenage Prostitute. Strip Karaoke shares two songs with our listeners today, first Big Dick, and lastly I Like Her Tits. These two very sexy songs sandwich Mitchell Vaillant’s tune: Harper’s Ferry. I’m sure Mitchell is glad to be sandwiched between May’s two Strip Karaoke tunes. Mmmmmmm.
If you listen to this podcast during your commute on the bus you may get a big boner, so listener beware and be sure you don’t embarass yourself. Enjoy.
Every time I punch in at work, I can actually feel my soul draining out of me into the time card, and into the veins of my employer giving him my vitality. I believe that the 40 hour work week is “slavery in disguise”… and it’s not disguised all that well either.
Many of the world’s problems come from over production. The pollution and waste that is created due to over production is obvious. There is way too much of way too much these days, and little of it really matters. Most things are not life or death, so therefore are not very important in the long run. Everyone’s home is full of crap they don’t need and yet cannot part with.
I’ve always felt that I was too nice to succeed in business. I’m just not evil enough to be business wise. I cannot naturally do things that hurt other people, and it really gets in my way. I also know that I would never be happy if I was not true to myself, so putting on a business mask in order to be successful, wouldn’t lead to any happiness in the long run either.
So this image enhanced podcast is for all the Working Class Heroes out there that keep the infrastructure from collapsing. A big ‘Thanks’ is in order. Without these hard working people, we wouldn’t have the convenience of electricity, running water, my precious internet connection, or food.
If you have a job, this podcast is for you. If you hate your commute, boss, job, co-workers, or any part of your work day, this broadcast is for you. I have posted this on a Sunday so that you can enjoy this podcast during your Monday commute. Take care, my heart is with you all!!!
There are several theories on the origin of the secret code word 4:20. Some say that 4:20 is the birthday of Bob Marley, but I don’t know if that’s true. I do know that most of the time people refer to it as time. Like the question I hear from my co-workers each day, Hey – is it 4:20 yet?
Perhaps it’s work related after all, being so close to closing time. People just want to get over the hump of the day.
Then again, if you have a regular clock with two hands and a circle of numbers, well then one would notice that at precisely 4:20 the big hand lines up with the small hand over the 4. This is a very surreal moment when one cannot be sure what time it is. It’s as if someone has stolen the small hand right off your clock, and you just cannot tell what time it is. This can be especially terrifying if one is at work. What has happened to the clock? Good God someone has stolen the hands to our clock! We may never get out of here…
Today’s 4:20 podcast starts off with the title track from the Rain Station CD titled, Stonedozer. Dan Hanrahan contributes Jack Rabbit Dawn, Brent Clifford and the Unknown Rule perform, Drugs. Finally Bay Area Punk Rock band, Strip Karaoke do a chillin’ rendition of, Smoke Some Pot. And no matter when you play this podcast, remember that it’s always 4:20 somewhere in the world.
There is one zone where the commercial music industry does not go, and it’s the truly weird. I know they get close now and then, but I’m talking about maximum weird here people. Home recording is special because it’s usually being made just for fun, and usually by people that have very little experience. The enjoyment of recording sounds and playing them back can entertain pretty much anyone that can get their hands on the equipment to do so.
There is nothing weirder than home recordings, and I tell you , I know it’s not for everyone. However, I believe that I am a connoisseur of the weird, and I can tell good weird from bad weird. Some things are weird because they are trying to be weird, but the truly magical weird things are those that don’t know they’re being weird. After the experience, great weird things can make us think differently. The weird that changes our minds forever, and changes normal things into unknown territory is the weird I like most. So there.
We start off with my good friend mopehead, with a delightful ditty: To Town I Go, from the Weird Songs CD found only at 13thTrack.com – so check it out, there’s lots of weird music & Flash animation at this cool site.
Tucker Fucker Katonah! does an impromptu ad for Carvelle Ice-cream.
Honeysuckle does a tune I call Cosmic Cowboy. I am playing Honeysuckle because they are the weirdest band I’ve ever heard that I absolutely love. They freak me out and make me laugh. I hear so many complexities in the noise of this three person act. I cannot believe that anyone would do this, so it amazes me in so many ways, (not all good), but they still amaze me, none the less.
Rain Station likes to goof off when they are doing a sound check, and they make up lots of ridiculous riffs while getting ready to play. It’s actually the best part of the act. Check out, Fancy Pants, it’s funny.
For a while in the early 90′s I lived with a buddy of mine named Brent Clifford. Brent is rock and roll royalty because his dad is Doug Clifford, drummer for Credence Clearwater Revival, one of the greatest bands ever, and still going strong as Revisited. One weekend Brent borrowed my Tascam 4 track and recorded some of the most bizarre stuff I’d ever heard. We end our podcast with the lamenting tale of Poor Little Froggie.
I think it’s really cool when musicians take the traditional music they grew up with, and turn it into something unique for a new generation to enjoy. The freshness of traditional music combined with rock & hip hop influences creates a whole new mix for the whole world to groove to.
Today’s image enhanced podcast starts off with Alin Rogoz who likes to mix traditional Gypsy music with rock, ska, reggae, and hip hop. Alin records on Garageband, and his tunes are excellent. Me and Baby Hoagie hop around and dance every time we play this tune, titled: Gypsy Street.
A few years ago, I was lucky to get a copy of Abdullah Anayat’s CD, The Nomad Of Love. Abdullah is originally from Afghanistan, and combines traditional rhythms with western grooves. This CD can be found at: NobodyRecords.com – be sure to check it out.
Then to cap off this episode, we enjoy a visit from The 8 Ball Girl who helps us all with our most difficult decisions. If you would like to ask The 8 Ball Girl a question, just email us, and we’ll take it from there.
Our image enhanced podcast is best viewed using iTunes. Need information on how to subscribe to our podcast? Enjoy!
A lot of music, movies, and art revolve around the theme of, Love Gone Wrong. Tonight we share two different works that define love gone very very wrong. First up will be Writer/Cartoonist Eve Gilbert reading her story titled, A Swell Guy. For those of you listening via iTunes, Eve’s nifty illustrations will appear in the lower left hand corner in the artwork window. Just click the images in iTunes to pop ‘em up BIG for a good look at Eve’s cartoons.
I met Eve in Portland Maine through Frank Hobbs – (aka Frank’s Depression) in 1990. The three of us collaborated on a video short titled: Window Watcher and that’s where I got the audio of Frank reading his poetry. The audio was the soundtrack to our video, but I no longer have the video. Maybe our friend Jordan Kratz still has a copy, who knows? (NOTE: he did have the video which is now up at: FranksDepression.com)
When I moved out west to the Bay Area of California, I bumped into Eve and Frank on the street selling their ‘zines in the Haight. They would often crash in my living room in Berkeley, leaving me free ‘zines when they got up in the morning. I still have them, and these illustrations by Eve are from one of the ‘zines Eve left for me. I recorded Eve at a small East of Market club in San Francisco called The Paradise Lounge in 1991. Eve has an illustrated book you can order through Amazon titled: Tits, Ass & Real Estate. Get it, it’s an amazing story – you just can’t put it down!
After Eve’s terrifying story, T2 does their tune, I Love You Jody Foster, which was inspired by the crazed gun slinger John Hinckley that attempted to assassinate President Reagan to prove his love for Jodie Foster. This was recorded in 1982 in my mom’s garage on a cheap boom box. Jim Lynch wrote this song, and provides great vocals for this Portland Maine based Punk Rock band.
Nothing is better than a good larff. I enjoy a good larff or two now and then, and this is the kind of stuff that makes me larff. First up is The Sonny Probe Experience performing Cop Rant.
This spoken word piece by Sonny Probe was recorded at the amazing Outlook studio in Bethel Maine. Imagine an old Maine farm and barn converted into a recording studio and boarding house. Come on, are you listening? Imagine it! OK. Pretty nice eh? One can book time at the studio and stay in the farm house’s many rustic guest rooms. If you are planning some recording time, book a stay for your band and producer, and enjoy a relaxing time in the Maine woods.
Other things that make me larff is any band with a Tuba. Jesus Knievel fits the bill. Bizarro rock/polka band rips off every classic rock guitar lick ever known. They are hilarious, amazing and oh so amusing. Enjoy!
