There are a lot of songwriters out there with large bodies of work, but not a lot as openly honest and street level as Lou Reed (1942-2013). Lou passed away before I started the show, so I never got to do an RIP show for him, but I think the scene shows I used to do can be filled with overview shows every now and then, so I wanted to start that tradition by giving you one on Lou Reed, who wrote the first song I ever remember hearing in my life, "Heroin." 

As with all scene shows, it runs a bit longer (about 3 hours), and features a bit more of me talking, so if that's not your bag, we'll see you next week. For the rest of you, let's spend three hours talking about the street poet of NYC, Lou Reed, and the Velvet Underground.

Over the 3 hours, we'll cover the Velvets (with and without Nico), Lou's relationship with Andy Warhol, his relationship with a transgender woman named Rachel, the utter FU that is "Metal Machine Music," the rediscovery of Lou's work in the late 80s, the brief revival of the Velvets, his resurgence in the 90s, the mostly quiet aughts, and the final record he made with Metallica, "Lulu," that a bunch of people don't like, but me and David Bowie both love.

Still miss ya, Lou.

I know I tout some shows as being more particularly random than others, but this is about as random as I've been in a while. I mean, jazz, Swedish electro-pop, hip hop, 80s pop... yeah, it's all over the place. But I like it and hopefully you do too. Keep in mind, the show popped up almost a day earlier on my Patreon, and I may start putting out an additional episode each month exclusively for Patreon. So consider that!

Lots of good randomness this week, as well as paying tribute to a pioneer in psychedelic rock, Roky Erickson. If you aren't familiar with his story, whew, is it a lesson in how far we've come in mental health treatment, as well as a cautionary tale of who you can and can't trust. Anyway, feel free to give a listen and as always, drop me a line on Twitter or via the email I give out during the show! I love hearing from fans.

Sometimes I don't have a whole lot to say about a show. This might be one of those shows. Maybe not! It's hard to say. I mean, I could tell you it's a very random show, but it's always a very random show. I could tell you I've got weird things planned, but that's usually true. Maybe you should just listen and enjoy it.

I read an article not too long ago that said the music you're listening to in junior high and high school sets up your musical tastes for the rest of your life. That does explain a whole LOT actually, although certainly not everything. But here's a show that covers many of the things I was listening to during those years, from stuff I found on MTV's 120 Minutes to stuff Tristan and Topher introduced me to as well as stuff on a legendary mix tape that a guy named Dylan made for me back then which introduced me to a ton of people.

So hopefully this episode won't get lost in all the ruckus that the Mueller report has been delivered to the AG, but what the hell, I was half way through recording it when that news dropped, so here you go anyway.

While the subgenre of math rock has a lot of people arguing about what it is and isn't, I decided to do a scene show, throwing my hat into the ring. So over about 3 hours, as we do in all of our scene shows, I'll walk you through what I think forms the core of a math rock band/song, talk about the origins of the scene including proto math rockers, explore some of the key players in the scene, talk a bit about how easily bands can be both a math rock band and a post-rock band, and give little waves to the subsubgenres of math metal and mathcore. 

As with all scene shows, I claim no sense of authority, simply remind you I'm a guy who does his homework, and knows enough to be dangerous.

So let's cover math rock!

I can't watch the damn television any more. The news is going to make me throw something at it if I'm not careful. I'd like Nixon II: Electric Bugaloo to be over now rather than the additional 6-12 months it's gonna take for this mess to blow over, and that's if we're lucky! Anyway, here's this week's show, full of all sorts of manic sprinkles.

Next week, assuming my head doesn't explode, will be a scene show on math rock, by request.

I swing all over the place this week, which always makes for the better shows in my opinion, from Portuguese rap-rock to classical jazz to Indian prog-rock to classic punk rock. We also acknowledge the passing of Mark Hollis, frontman for legendary synthpop band Talk Talk.

Hey, do me a favor, wouldja? Say hi to me over on Twitter. I'd love to know what you think of the show, where you found out about it, and what kinds of stuff you think I should be spinning. Music discovery is a bitch, so I love when people tell me to check out bands, even if I don't end up liking them.

Anyway, here's the show.
