Well we certainly talked some inside baseball with Amanda this month! I (Rick) took liberties with editing on this. It’ll make for a more amusing listen if you don’t have deep inside knowledge of music retail. If you are in music retail it’s not so disguised that you maybe can’t figure out the companies discussed. Y’know, MEGACORP!? I also took the opportunity to add some spooky sounds since this is episode that is most current for Halloween. Heck, you may even figure out your own side story to go along with those sounds.
Oh yeah, so we talked about music retail business, record shows, the various stores Amanda has worked at from Slipped Disc to Needle & Groove, and Generation to her job as a representative at All Media Supply and her work putting on record shows with Vinyl Revolution. We also talk about what we’re listening to, what Amanda is listening to and what Amanda grew up listening to including her musical background.
Jack aka The//Moon joined us on the podcast this month. We talk about a variety of topics including the best green room experience he had with Cold Snap, collaborating with Wicca Phase Springs Eternal Springs Eternal, and watching Lost more times than anyone I know (and probably anyone ever).
Our guest this month is recent transplant to Connecticut, Antoni Maiovvi (an alias and also the preferred name by which he is referred). We talk about his many projects under this name and various others on the label he co-runs, Giallo Discos, and many others.
We talk about his many moves that eventually brought him here. And Josh stands up for compact discs! And of course, we talk about music we’re listening to and many subjects along the way.
On this episode of the podcast we answer the questions submitted via Instagram and talk about Record Store Day 2021 in general (RSD Drops 1 & 2, June 12th and July 17th).
We talk about what we’re listening to, about what we’re looking forward to from RSD, about what we’ve liked from the past and what we’d hope to have released in the future (RSD or otherwise) and of course a bit more. This is a nice quick listen with lots of music and some information on how we’re running the June 12th drop date for RSD 2021. More information about how we’re running things at this link.
Steve Hartlett joined us on the podcast this month. We talk about the forthcoming Ovlov record fairly in depth. We talk about the rotating members of the band and how Stove relates to that as well.
We also talk about Steve’s growing up in a strict Christian home and having a neighbor (who was the drummer in Self Defense) hand him a punk tape to open his world. We talk about how Steve’s dad dated Linda Blair (yep, that one from The Exorcist). And we talk about a bunch of stuff really. Plus we talk about what we’re listening to. Check it out!
