Dig Deeper with Cousin Barry Episode 1

In this first episode of Dig Deeper with Cousin Barry, we both decided to defend an album in our collection. Barry took John Cougar Mellencamps UH HUH and I thought Cinderella’s NIGHT SONGS was worth the fight. We will post the post script later this week, we both listened to the others defense album and wrote a short piece about it. Listen, Learn, and find out why UH HUH deserves to be, at the very least, your fifth favorite album. Dig Deeper with Cousin Barry Episode 1 [ 33:04 ] Play Now | Play in Popup |...

SLTM Mini Episode 272.1 with Steve Jiff

Brad is gone for the summer. So instead of letting some decent music and a crummy web site go to waste, Steve Jiff decided to take the controls for some mini episodes. These will be weekly or more often, depending on Jiff’s mood, and will last between twenty and twenty two minutes. It’s two songs, a bit and Jiff acting like a moron, kind of like his morning show in Racine, but in a smaller easier to digest morsel. ALL HAIL THE JIFFSTER!

SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 272

SLTM 272– Man, I wish I can say that I was one of those dancers in the Rico Suave Video Topic: Take the SLTM (the Podcast) listening quiz Music: Enslaved– (full review) I am going to have to do a full review of this release, as it has so many interesting elements to it. I need to dig deeper into it. Kukahi Lee– “War” has a B-52’s dancy funtime beat to it. I prefer the dance tracks, my advice for this artist would be to turn more towards his Prince side and away from the Right Said Fred and Gerardo. “hero” has a nice new romantic rockabilly flavor to it. “Edge of the World” is a nice Amy Winehouse ripoff. Conan Neutron and The Secret Friends– (full review coming soon)- Mixing parts of the Cramps, Elvis Costello and the Attractions, and the good old get down and rock of The Diamond Pirite Company (a local 80’s band that could really get it on stage). Conan Neutron and the Secret Friends is the band in my re-imagining of a back yard party I went to in high school. Of course then it was just Steve Millers Greatest Hits on Cassette and some warm Red, white and blue beer, but in my remembrance of it there’s cold Pabst (after they solved the skunky beer flavor) and Conan Neutron and the Secret Friends are really tearing it up. When the cops show up, the band in defiance, turns up the volume and keeps rocking even as the cops are pushing aside horny teens and breaking apart the keg. I like my false memory better than what really happened. Fistula– a good friend of mine growing up, Chuck Shwickey, had a band called Ungrateful Bastard. They played a bunch at Chips Kettle while we were in high school. I saw them there five or six times before they broke up. Chuck’s dad was a raging alcoholic, and almost everyone of Chuck’s songs were about an abusive, psychotic, drunken Clown called Ultimate Fistula. While listening to this release, it brought back all those old memories. Every note, emotion and feeling that I got from Ungrateful Bastard. Life is like that isn’t it? A forgotten memory of a long ago friend who was brutally honest and emotionally fucked up. Music is a good trigger for that stuff. Even if sometimes we don’t want to remember it. I’m glad it came flooding back. “Negative” has some...

Dig Deeper Episode 5 – Nostalgia clouds your brain

I’ve got regrets, we all do but ordering that chicken sandwich in a diner in the middle of Alaska was one that tops my list. Oh boy was I sick, I mean like shitting out your esophagus sick. But now I’m better. So here is Episode five of Dig Deeper, in it we talk about nostalgia and if it clouds your judgement. Sure it does, I still think I’m going to marry Jan Brady.

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 271

SLTM 271– How would you like to get paid to work out? Not bad, Huh? Topic– We examine the lyrics to the Warrior by Scandal featuring Patty Smythe Also Not Appearing on the Show: Abhorrent – Intransigence- Facebook.com/abhorrentdm What if governments were communicating in secret through Death Metal? That the singer is trained in a secret language like the Navajo people. Maybe this is how the world governments do it, having death metal vocalist filter information through grunts, low growled vocals and demonic declorations. Who would know? Could one of these bands be like a new wind talker? Think about it. I did and it freaks me out. Music: Red Hymns– Three song EP, I like how they are releasing their music, a three song EP each quarter to make up a full album. Good thinking. Fast rock, sounds better in your head phones than it does in the car stereo. I’m not sure how people younger than I listen to music, mostly I see them on their phone with either earbuds or regular “Can” headphones, so I imagine that they don’t listen to music on the radio anymore, or if they do its through their phone. I think you’ll really miss some of the power chords in this release if you don’t get the phones around your ears and just let it soak into your auditory nerves. Its got a bit of touchtone soar to it that almost makes listening to it in the open car a wasted effort. While scanning this release for thoughts, I was originally listening to it just on my lap top, but it was lacking something. So I put on my Cans and noticed that the fullness and small thrums of the bass were missing when I just had it on the laptop speakers. I recommend listening to this on a rainy day, a bit bored, a touch hungry and wanting to drift off into another time either in your life or this worlds. Says RIYL Deftones, and I can see that, just not as heavy or grease around the oil filter dirty as that band. Jael Bird Joseph– right off the bat I like this guys voice, it’s distinct without being over emotive. Instantly catchy and likable. “Memories of the night Song” would be a good song for an independent movie, especially a scene where the main character is driving away from something that has meant a thousand things to him/her and...

Dig Deeper Episode 4- Going Beserk

Welcome to episode four of Dig Deeper with Cousin Barry. I hope you have enjoyed the first two we posted. Oh? you haven’t listened to them? You think two old guys reminiscing about old nonsense you don’t care about is bullshit? You got us, it is. In this episode we discuss a comedy classic, the 1983 comedy starring John Candy GOING BESERK. Also John Candy did not co-write Canadian Bacon with Michael Moore. Candy has six writing credits on his resume. Most of them for SCTV. Finally, anyone who watches Going Beserk please let me know what the biker says to Candy on his way out of Moms. Thanks for listening. Dig Deeper with Cousin Barry Episode 4 [ 15:14 ] Play Now | Play in Popup |...
