With the passing of Little Richard last month, I decided I wanted to do a deep dive into funk. Turns out that's a pretty big topic, so this is a pretty big episode, and I wrap up in 1986, where funk starts to evolve into a bunch of other things. Take a listen, and if you enjoy and want a part 2 on funk, drop me a line. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy three hours on the history of funk!

Apr 28, 2020

I've been working on and off on this episode for a while, but I eventually decided I needed to not be such a perfectionist about it and to just admit that I'm probably going to get a bunch of things wrong in it.

This week's show is about the Japanese subgenre known as visual kei, which, in many ways, isn't even an actual genre, more a loose association of bands based on a visual aesthetic.

Anyhow, here's three hours walking me through some of the history of visual kei, many of the players, talking about its beginnings, the waves - first, second, third, neo - and about how the genre still lives today. It's a big show, it's not for everyone, but give it a go, and maybe you'll learn something.

I'm still here. California is still standing. We aren't at the worst of the epidemic here in the United States, but it's pretty fucking bad, no lies. I worry for those in New York the most, who are currently hit the hardest.

All that said, with all this darkness comes a little bright light. Fury In The Slaughterhouse released a new song today, and all the charity is going to Doctors Without Borders. It's your moment of Fury today, but you should go out and buy the song on your own as well.

And here's a list of all the RIP/remembrance shows I've done. When someone in music passes away, usually we'll play a single song of their in memory of them on that week's show. But for some people, it's just not enough. I also realized I wanted to sometimes do shows like these for people who passed away before I started doing the show, so those are included here also:

I realized I need an easy place to keep track of all the scene shows we've done, so here's that list:

So I'm here. I think. Maybe. What day is it? Let's check the calendar. Huh. It's technically a Friday as I record/post this. I've barely been out of the house for three weeks. So I made this particular episode to remind me how a week works. Maybe it'll help you also.

So I don't want to talk too much about the epidemic crossing the globe, but I will say we're still under shelter-in-place here in California, and that the US is now leading in cases of the virus. But all I can do is make music and hope it keeps people entertained. So enjoy a four hour show. Because hell, why not...

So on Sunday, the Bay Area (in which I live) issued a "shelter-in-place" mandate, meaning if you don't have to go out, DON'T. On Thursday, that order was expanded to the entire state of California.

Because of that, maybe I'm going a little stir crazy. It's weird to see pictures of the Bay with no traffic anywhere, and to skip things that have been staples in my life, like pub trivia night or boardgame night.

I've been doing what I can to stay in contact with friends/family via Facetime, Facebook Videochat and the like, but it's still a very weird disconnect. I deal with trauma with gallows humor, so I made this, show zero, full of apocalypse songs.

Soon, I'll do another one, full of more upbeat stuff. But I thought I'd give everyone an update from the frontlines, so I maybe talk more this episode than normal. A slice of life of what right now is like, to be preserved for posterity. We're all living through history. Maybe a little extra talking time is warranted right now.

Still, it's my show and while I'm happy to have you along for the ride, Imma do me. Enjoy.

So this isn't a typical episode. The entire back half of the episode is dedicated to a Midwestern band that I've often felt deserves to be a bunch bigger. That band is The Samples. They're also on tour for much of this year, all over the whole country, even out here in California, so I'm going to see them live! Again! For the first time in 20+ years! You should too!

I hadn't really anticipated doing a scene show this month, but it turns out we lost one of the greatest drummers of all time, Neil Peart of Rush, a little over a week ago.

If you aren't familiar with the powerhouse that was Neil Peart, I spend over 3 hours giving you a tour-de-force of the tour-de-force they called The Professor.

In addition to being Rush's drummer, he was also their lyricist, writing so many incredible songs filled with sci-fi and fantasy imagery. 

For 40 years, Neil Peart delighted and amazed audiences. If you aren't familiar with the band I describe as "the third most proggy band ever," or even if you're a die hard Rush fan slappin' da bass, hopefully you'll enjoy this overview of their career, and know how much we all miss Neil Peart.

  • "Fly By Night"
  • "Anthem"
