Random Old Records Podcast #75

2019 has been one of the most exhausting years on record, at least it feels that way as June comes to a close. It's my hope that EPISODE #75 of Random Old Records is a little sunshine in all of this rain, a little escapism from the tough and angry world outside, a little bit of fun and relief from all this work. Download it to your device of choice and get ready for 58 minutes and 42 seconds of jams for the heart and soul.

You'll hear brand new music from the legendary Meat Puppets, who just released one of their best albums 30 years into their run, power pop from The Resonars and Julian Leal, new and old dreamy psychedelic pop from The Third Eye, Garcia Peoples, and Olden Yolk, classics from Sir Douglas Quintet and Barbara Manning, plus so so much more. This episode is dedicated to everyone out there just getting by and trying their best. I hope you enjoy it!

Random Old Records Podcast #74

It's a couple weeks later than I wanted, but Random Old Records is finally back! EPISODE #74 is a little bit messy. It's silly and sad, loud and soft, joyous and tense, goofy and awkward. Some of the transitions are a bit rough. There's some stuff here that sounds a little out-of-place if you're expecting hard-edged garage punk. Don't let all of that scare you off though, it's still loaded with jams!

#74 kicks off with a set of classic Britpop, finishing up a with fresh track from Lush/Elastica/Moose supergroup Piroshka, then careens from electronic pop by Yumi Zouma to long-awaited new music from Australian punks UV Race, to blistering rage from Control Top, to sweet piano pop from Girl Ray, to old-school Random Old Records favorites like People's Temple and Teledrime, to a whole bunch more new and old rock n' roll. It's one of the most frantic and emotional episodes I've ever done, so enjoy the ride!

Random Old Records Podcast #73

Hey folks, it's time for a brand new Random Old Records Podcast! EPISODE #73 starts out punk rock, ends up pop, and takes a lot of wild detours in between. The original playlist for this one was over four hours, and it took a lot of work to get it down to 59 minutes and 37 seconds. Let's dive in!

The punk rock comes from classic tracks by Pansy Division and Sado-Nation and newer jams by BB And The Blips and Negative Scanner. The pop goes all the way back to the Everly Brothers and forward to some brand new Swervedriver, and there's a nice gooey middle with hooky goodness from Colleen Green, The Beths, The Bombpops, and many, many more. In between all the heat, you'll hear excerpts from the classic 60s head movie The Committee, starring Paul Jones of Manfred Mann! Check it out, and I hope y'all dig it!!

Random Old Records Podcast #72

Hey folks, Random Old Records is back for its 11th year! EPISODE #72 is nearly a full hour of that classic rock n' roll beat presented in a wide variety of styles and eras, from the 50s to just a few weeks ago. That's a convoluted and verbose way to say: the one's got some serious JAMS!

Kicking off with "Mystery Action", the last released tune from the legendary Rezillos, ROR #72 offers up power-pop-punk tracks from Tweens, Terry and Louie, and Midnite Snaxxx, loud indie jangle from Salad Boys, The Driscolls, For Against, and Dark Blue, vintage rockin' country from Porter Wagoner and the Farmer Boys, and almost a dozen more hitters from all points in between.

Random Old Records Podcast #71

Hey folks, welcome to the last Random Old Records podcast of 2018! EPISODE #71 jumps wildly from genre to genre, equally divided between music for dancing and dreaming.

Colemine Records out of Loveland, Ohio has been modestly releasing the best vintage-sounding soul music all year long. The beginning of this episode highlights tracks by Ben Pirani and Wesley Bright and the Honeytones along with some rare '60s and '70s soul stompers. It moves on to more classic sounds from recent compilations, including garage rock from The Collectors and sunshine pop from The Carnival Connection, then back to the present day with jangle from The Weather Station and The Stroppies, bionic synth grooves from Vive La Void and Klaus Johann Grobe, plus a whole lot more!

Random Old Records Podcast #70

This month, I felt a sudden shock of inspiration and this podcast seemed to appear instantly out of thin air! EPISODE #70 of Random Old Records started like many past ones have, with a song that I couldn't get out of my head.

In this case, it was the first track off the classic 1997 album by The Promise Ring, Nothing Feels Good. "Is This Thing On?" lit a spark in me that led to a set of incredible late '90s post-hardcore emo-punk-pop from Jets To Brazil, Superchunk, and others. From there, the episode flows into a bunch of recent jams from One Eleven Heavy, Shannon and the Clams, Exploded View, Mountain Movers, Dreamend, and so much more. If you like raw post-punk, rootsy guitars, and/or dreamy drones, there's something for you here, plus you'll get wild excerpts from the 1960 sci-fi classic Amazing Transparent Man!

Random Old Records Podcast #69

Hey folks! Another month has gone by and it's time for a brand new hour of Random Old Records! EPISODE #69 features 28 massive tracks of new and old punk, rock, and punk rock. There's so much good stuff I can't talk about it all, but let's give it a shot, OK?

The show then winds its way through off-kilter post-punk (Terry, Table Sugar, Collate) and jangle-punk (Primo, Smoking Trees, Ethers), before finishing up with anthemic pop-punk (Martha, Remember Sports).

Random Old Records Podcast #68

I can't believe another year has gone by, but it's time for the annual 5/10/15/20 edition of Random Old Records! EPISODE #68 features a collection of tracks from the years 1998, 2003, 2008, and 2013, along with some vintage news reports about the headlines of the day. Get into your time machine and jet back to the past!

In 1998, The Jesus & Mary Chain came back after a few years out of the spotlight, the Jesus Lizard released their final albums, and bands like American Steel and Murder City Devils broke out huge. By 2003, post-hardcore dominated the zeitgeist, with the Blood Brothers, Cursive making their definitive LPs. In 2008, the garage rock underground exploded with classic releases by Nobunny and the Ettes, while punk rock ruled the day in 2013. Check out this episode for a dose of nuclear-powered nostalgia!

Random Old Records Podcast #67

Sometimes Random Old Records takes a lot of work to put together, but this one fell together smooth and easy. I guess it makes sense that the general vibe of EPISODE #67 is nice and laid back as well, coasting on twanging guitars, harmonies both cheesy and transcendent, pounding pianos, burbling electric organs, lots of woah oh's, shout-outs to comic book characters, and real-deal emotions.

That's just a long-winded way to say that you will hear classic pub rock from Brinsley Schwarz and Eggs Over Easy, new excitement from Greg Ashley, The Golden Boys, and Lavender Flu, and a cherry-picked selection of raw and rare private-press soul and psychedelic rock from some amazing compilations. Tune out of the insanity of the world for an hour and dive into some adventurous and soothing jams!

Random Old Records Podcast #66

2018 is rolling on, and Random Old Records podcast is back! EPISODE #66 is a set of tracks for this hot and uncomfortable summer. Whether you're sweating it out in the streets or hibernating under a pile of blankets in your sweet, sweet air conditioned room, there's a little something for everyone to enjoy.

The past year or so has brought an amazing wave of angry, confrontational hardcore and punk rock, and the first quarter of the show highlights some ferocious tracks from Exotica, Patsy, Kaleidoscope, and Gen Pop. The crucial UK label La Vida Es Un Mus features heavily in this set; every release they put out is worth a listen. From there, the podcast takes a dreamier turn, with folky psych-rock from Heron Oblivion and Dana Gillespie, rootsy pop from Del Shannon, The Paperhead, and Shannon Shaw, and even a little moody synth from Rizzo and Century Palm. In between tracks, you will hear snippets from the wild 1985 Canadian psychic horror movie Eternal Evil. Go ahead, leave your body!

Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to Random Old Records via iTunes, Google Play, or RSS. If you like the show, please rate it and write a review! You can also go the traditional route and stream or download the episode below. Come back in about a month for episode #67, which will go even deeper down the rabbit hole of southern twang and low-key guitar heroics As always, thanks for listening!
