Episode 23 of the Death by Discography podcast!
We’re back, and only slightly late. This week: more Scott! Ned is not sure whether he announces or enunciates, while Christie takes on the mantle of chief fact checker AND the title of Mr Bombastic.
We talk about proto punk bands coming out of Detroit in 1969, find out who the world’s first stage diver was, and become very sad about Skip Spence. We talk about hot (and cold) rats, and rave about how goddamn good Frank(lin) Zappa’s drums sound.
Also big news: WE FINALLY MADE IT OUT OF THE SIXTIES. First stop in the seventies: discussing unquestionably racist band names. Fun for the whole family.
Albums this week
- Scott 4 by Scott Walker
- The Stooges by The Stooges
- Oar by Alexander Spence
- Hot Rats by Frank Zappa
- Cosmo’s Factory by Creedence Clearwater Revival
