Touring the world one pair of headphones at a time...

May 26, 2017

Take a listen to 135 before you get here, as it sets up the early foundations about pure industrial, and over the 2+ hours of 136, I'm going to focus on industrial rock, electro-industrial and, occasionally, industrial metal, although the line between industrial rock and industrial metal blurs so much it's hard to distinguish them, often.

This is a heavy episode, but should provide an excellent soundtrack for whatever angry, aggressive actions you might be getting up to. Also, EXPLICIT LYRICS WARNING - there's some songs with heavy swearing. So, y'know, headphones on, people...

Okay, a few things of warning for you about this show.

  1. This is a mini-scene show.
  2. The theme is industrial, which means it can be hard to listen to for a lot of people.
  3. The more accessible stuff will come in the next episode.
  4. That's also a scene show, focusing on the split between
    1. Electro-industrial
    2. Industrial rock
    3. Industrial metal
  5. If you want to listen to this one and just fast forward through a bunch of the music, that's cool, but it'll help frame your understanding for show 136.

On Wednesday night, Chris Cornell took his own life, possibly under the influence of medication. One of the last titans of the grunge era, Cornell was best known for fronting Soundgarden, but had a long and varied career, so I want to take this Friday show to do an overview of his career, and celebrate some of the amazing music he put forth into the world. We miss you already, man.

[EXPLICIT SHOW INCOMING]

 

So I had this idea that I wanted to do an episode of standup comedy, some of my favorite comedians, and see where that took me. As it turns out, it lead me to a 90 minute episode that still doesn't have all the people I wanted to include, so if people dig this and ask for another one, I'll do another one at some point.

 

If stand up comedy isn't your thing, try a different episode. But for those of you who love comedy and are trying to get through these dark times, this should give you a broad spectrum of lots of great comedians, and if you find somebody you like, seek out their material. I highly recommend it.

 

As Christopher Titus once said, "I just need a good laugh!!!" So here we go.
