Random Old Records Podcast #92

Spring has sprung, and all I wanna do is listen to music! EPISODE #92 of Random Old Records continues the vintage punk rock thread of last episode, along with some jingle, some jangle and some plain ol' rock n' roll. Let's get into it!

This time around, you'll hear stone-cold classics from the Circle Jerks and Uniform Choice, underrated 90s pop-punk from Bum and the Bomb Bassets, a stack of boppers from the venerable Mutant Pop label by The Hissyfits, The Proms, and The Beautys, new stuff from The Spits and Gen Pop, plus a whole lot more! In between the tracks, you'll hear excerpts from the classic 1975 crime caper Las Vegas Lady, starring Stella Stevens. All in all, it's another episode I'm mighty proud of, so I hope everyone likes it!

Random Old Records Podcast #91

OK, so 2021 started and I somehow became obsessed with 90s punk rock again. It's pretty intense, probably the most obsessed I've been since well, the 90s. EPISODE #91 of Random Old Records is filled with classics and sleepers from the last decade of the 20th century, plus a whole lot more.

You'll hear Bikini Kill, Tilt, Propagandhi, the Fastbacks, and Pennywise. You'll also hear garage rock and psychedelic classics from the Belfast Gypsies, the Moon, and the Vogues, plus soul bangers by Ray Redmond and Della Reese. You'll also hear some ska, I think? I'm not gonna lie, this is one of the best episodes I've ever done. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Random Old Records Podcast #90

Right under the wire, here's one more podcast for this blessed and cursed year of 2020. EPISODE #90 of Random Old Records is mostly new jams this time, with a few old favorites sprinkled in here and there. It goes all over the place! If you're into snapping electronic percussion, unexpected sax solos, uninhibited crooning, pronounced accents, and way too many power chords, this is the episode for you!

I am a huge fan of the raw and jubilant electronic jams made by Los Angeles label 100% Silk, so this set kicks off with a track from label mainstays LA Vampires. You'll then hear swaggering fire from US Girls and Special Interest, poppy-punk from The Beths, Brick Head, and Dumspell, psychedelic classics from Margo Guryan and The Pretty Things, wistful modern pop from Marie Davidson and En Attendant Ana, plus so much more. It's an open window on a warm winter morning.

Also, if you've been following me for awhile you'll know I started working on a zine back in 2013, and somehow it's finally finished! Random Old Records Zine #1 is out and shipping now! $6.50 postage-paid, 20 pages, black & white, all previously unpublished on this blog or elsewhere.

Random Old Records Podcast #89

Hey folks! It's that time of year again. EPISODE #89 of Random Old Records is the annual 5/10/15/20 edition, featuring classic tracks from the years 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. This will probably be the last episode of Random Old Records of 2020 and I wanted to go out with a bang, so this one is JAM-PACKED with hit after hit after hit!

Going back 20 years to 2000, you'll hear post-hardcore rippers from At The Drive-In and The Anniversary, then 2005 brings pop bliss from Epoxies and Nada Surf. 2010 was the year of garage rock like Dum Dum Girls and Best Coast, and 2015 closes things out with the nervy post-punk of Courtney Barnett and Bully. In between there's 11 more absolute classics, so climb in the time machine and turn the dial way back!

Random Old Records Podcast #88

Like a lot of people, I haven't left my house much for the last seven months. I've spent a lot of time with headphones on, trying to find the dreamiest music possible to escape into and pass the time. EPISODE #88 is crammed full of distorted guitars, piercing synths, vocal histrionics, and meditations on lives both small and large.

In this hour, you will hear classics from Lone Justice, The Soup Dragons, and Beverly, brand new jams from White Poppy, Maria Minerva, and The Lemon Twigs, plus a whole lot more. It jumps from country-rock to soul to garage pop to deep dance beats to progressive peacoat rock to trance-folk to throwback Britpop to real-deal Britpop. It's best experienced after spinning around for a few seconds and collapsing on the floor. Enjoy!

Random Old Records Podcast #87

2020, am I right?! The longest year in recorded human history is rolling on and on and so is Random Old Records. EPISODE #87 doesn't really have a theme or a point, other than containing 20 of the best songs I've heard in the past 30 days. So...let's dig in and let's get it on!

It all kicks off with a rare blast of horn-driven proto-punk from The Rats, then winds its way through classic garage rock and punk from The Pagans, Thee Headcoatees, The Customs, The Pandoras, and maybe even a couple bands that don't start with "The". Then, you'll hear vital new post-punk jams from Sweeping Promises, Lithics, and Naked Roommate, before the whole thing finishes up with a bone-chilling goth-country classic from Sammi Smith called "Saunders Ferry Lane". There's music for the head and music for the heart and music for the soul and music for the feet. Enjoy!

Random Old Records Podcast #85

So I've been mostly housebound for the last four months with plenty of free time. Luckily, while most of life has been on pause, the torrent of incredible music continues unchecked. I've been filling my head with jams of all eras, both new and new to me, and EPISODE #85 of Random Old Records is just a small sample of the musical riches that can be found with a little bit of digging.

Loveland, Ohio's Colemine Records (and its subsidiary Karma Chief) continue to pump out hits, and this time around you'll hear the recent offerings of the Harlem Gospel Travelers, Monophonics, and Michael Nau. Righteous, romantic soul is the vibe most of the way, then it gets slow and easy for awhile before crashing into a more rockin' finish. Along the way you'll meet The Altons, La La Brooks, Heron, Mortimer, Penetration, the Brothers of Soul, and many more. It's an hour of deep cuts for deep heads, so close your eyes and dig in!

Random Old Records Podcast #84

If you've been listening to Random Old Records for awhile, you'll know that weather and the seasons are one of the primary inspirations behind the music on the show. Well it's hot and hazy here in Ohio, so naturally EPISODE #84 is laid back and easy going to help beat back the sweat and the steam of summer in the city.

You will hear pub rock classics from Ducks Deluxe and Brinsley Schwarz, country-tinged obscurities by Twin Engine and Sanford Clark, new jams from Rose City Band, Primo, Lavender Flu, and Brigid Dawson, psychedelic pop hidden gems by Birmingham Sunday and Paul Parrish, plus so much more. Twang, loping rhythms, ghostly echo chambers, chill vibes that veer close to bad dreams, and cautious optimism is the order of the day. It's like ice for your brain, so hit that download button and give it a whirl.
