About this Episode

Michel Legrand [mm:ss]
"The Lab"
Ice Station Zebra
MGM Records S1E-14 ST 1968
"Jones (Patrick McGoohan) searches the wrecked laboratory at Ice Station Zebra and finds a radio detection device which can trace the location of the capsule. But before he can make use of it, he is struck unconscious by an unseen assailant." For more exciting details about this film, please enjoy this episode of the Vinyl-O-Matic Movie of the Month from 2017.

Bong [mm:ss]
"Idle Days on the Yann (Part 1)"
Idle Days on the Yann
Blackest Rainbow BRR246 2013
Some ambient stoner metal from these Newcastle-based Roadburn veterans.

The Mamas and The Papas [mm:ss]
"The 'In' Crowd"
If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears
Dunhill D50006 1966
Who doesn't love a good cover of "The 'In' Crowd"? This one comes from The Mamas and The Papas debut album.

Suzi Quatro [mm:ss]
If You Knew Suzi...
RSO RS-1-3044 1979
Who doesn't love a good cover of "Breakdown"? This one is from Suzi's fifth studio album. If you haven't seen her documentary Suzi Q, you should check it out.

Felt [mm:ss]
"Primitive Painters"
Ignite the Seven Cannons and Set Sail for the Sun
Cherry Red BRED 65 1985
Why yes, that is Elizabeth Fraser on backing vox. And yes, that is some Robin Guthrie production going on there. But no, it's not the Cocteau Twins. Why yes, it is the Deebank brothers. Actually, to my ears it sounds a bit like the Feelies. But who am I to say. Feelies? Felt? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Madonna [mm:ss]
"Lucky Star"
The Immaculate Collection
Sire W1-26440 1990
Well, since "Into the Groove" isn't included in this compilation, "Lucky Star" will do just fine. I mean, the video is pretty iconic. Made it to number 4 on the Hot 100.

Yellow Eyes [mm:ss]
Immersion Trench Reverie
Gilead Media RELIC93 2017
Some excellent New York-based black metal. Evidently this test pressing is one of 105 that were pressed for the band by Gilead Media for them to sell on their Euro tour, but the records were held up in customs and eventually returned to Gilead.

Music behind the DJ: "Summer Samba" by Duke Ellington and his Orchestra
