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.
