Episode 47: Brian Franke- King’s X / DOGMAN

Episode 47 is now up on πŸ, Google Play, Stitcher and TuneIn! We spoke with Charlottesville, VA based singer/songwriter Brian Franke who also comprises one-half of the duo FarAway. We talked about an important rock band known as King’s X and their 1994 album Dogman, King’s X is a musician’s band – a group whom many believe have not received the critical acclaim that they rightfully deserve from rock critics – even after playing a spell-binding set at Woodstock back in 1994! If you want to listen to a hard-rocking, power trio go to work, they are some of the most technically proficient musicians still out there cutting records and taking names. In fact, a new King’s X record is slated for late 2020 on Golden Robot Records. Mark it on your calendars and enjoy this discussion! πŸ˜Š πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ‘‹πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘‘X! @dugpinnick @tytabor @jerry.gaskill #KingsX #Dogman #DougPinnick #TyTabor #JerryGaskill #goldenrobotrecords


Episode 46: The Rock Savages Podcast – The Black Crowes/amorica.

Episode 46 is now available on πŸ Google Play, Stitcher and TuneIn! Today’s episode features Beau from The Rock Savages Podcast! We rifled through a few stacks of records and fell upon The Black Crowes and their 1994 record amorica. We find the “classic lineup” playing by their own set of rules (see banned cover art) outside of a musical landscape consumed by “grunge” and experimenting with newer sounds and rhythms at this juncture. It’s still the Crowes you’ve known and grown to love, but they’ve added a few colors to their pallet. Beau has been a fan of the band since their beginnings and shares a few anecdotes about meeting some band and crew members up in Woodstock. Enjoy the conversation! πŸ˜Š πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ‘‹πŸ‘†#theblackcrowes #amorica #AmericanRecordings #wisertime #1994 #bannedalbumcovers #chrisrobinson #richrobinson #johnnycolt #eddieharsch

Episode 45: Danny Green – Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy / Ease Down the Road

Episode 45 is now up on πŸ, Stitcher, google play and TuneIn! Today’s guest is London, UK’s Danny Green of the bands DG Solaris and Laish. Green shared a record that has played a pivotal role in his own explorations of songwriting: Louisville, Kentucky’s Will Oldham (AKA Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy)’s 2001 LP “Ease Down the Road.”

We spent a considerable amount of time attempting to dissect the lyrical meaning behind the songs on this record. Be forewarned: Bonnie Prince Billy’s lyrics are dark, bawdy and perhaps not for the faint of heart. Our conversation surely earned its explicit rating in the land of podcasts.

We had several laughs throughout at BPB’s lyrical construction and documentation of sexual escapades, and I hope you laugh along with us. Enjoy! It’s a brilliant record. πŸ˜Š πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ‘‹ #BonniePrinceBilly #WillOldham #EaseDowntheRoad #DragCityRecords #CovertoCoverwithMT #covertocoverconversations
