About this Episode

Pallbearer [00:24]
Profound Lore Records PFL179LP 2017
Some doomy goodness from the these Little Rock gents. One of my favorite albums from 2017.

The Isley Brothers [05:48]
"Fight the Power (Part 1 & 2)"
The Heat Is On
T-Neck PZ 33536 1975
Scorching opener from the Brothers 1975 double platinum album.

Thou [11:09]
"Into the Marshlands/Clarity"
Howling Mine ORE007 2014
More heaviness, this time by way of Louisiana. Easily one of the best doom albums of the last 10 years.

Heaven 17 [19:40]
"(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang"
Heaven 17
Arista AL 6606 1982
Sadly, as true today as it was 40 years ago, if not more so.

Cheap Trick [23:58]
"Reach Out"
Heavy Metal - Music from the Motion Picture
Full Moon DP-90004/Asylum Records DP-90004 1981
So very 1981 in the best possible way. Roy Thomas Baker produced this excellent Cheap Trick pop rocker co-written by Pete Comita, the bassist who briefly replaced Tom Petesson.

Virgil Fox [27:34]
"J.S. Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565"
Heavy Organ at Carnegie Hall, Vol. 2
RCA Red Seal ARL1-0477 1974
That's right, Bach orgelwerk set to a light show, oops light experience. No, really.

Taj Mahal [35:44]
"Diving Duck Blues"
Heavy Sounds
Columbia CS 9952 1970
Compilation for the kids who are into the heavy stuff. This track is a selection from Taj's first album.

Swiss Yodel Club [40:03]
"Sounds of Switzerland: Wolfsbödeler Yodel Song/Wie Bas Ich Mir Da Obe"
Songs from Heidi
Disneyland DQ-1327 1968
Yodels recorded via the tin cans and string method?

Bloc Party [44:16]
"Helicopter (Weird Science Remix featuring Peaches)"
Dim Mak Records DM095 2006
The sounds of 2006, in a good way.

Gravy Train!!!! [50:05]
"Burger Baby"
Hello Doctor
Kill Rock Stars KRS 389 2003
Why yes, of course there's a video.

Los Campesinos! [51:55]
"Baby I Got the Death Rattle"
Hello Sadness
Heart Swells HS001/Turnstile 796.A022.010 2011
This is an album that just keeps on giving. I always enjoy putting it on the turntable.

Music behind the DJ: "Spinning Wheel" by Terry Baxter and his Orchestra
