In this, the final, episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk about the reasons behind the (probably somewhat surprising!) end of the podcast. It’s short, as you might expect given my general lack of loquaciousness, so just give it a listen to find out why I’m stopping the podcast.

Oh, and be sure to check out and support the Logan Whitehurst Kickstarter in case you haven’t already done so!

 

Oct 19, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Kyle Stevens from Kirby Krackle. It’s hard to believe he was last on way back in 2015 for episode 8! Kirby Krackle’s latest release is Suburban Hearts / Vigilante Hymns. It’s a decidedly different direction, more mellow and stripped down (it’s just Kyle and the guitar / ukulele), less specifically geeky, but it’s not nearly as surprising as it might seem given several tracks from the last few albums.

Songs played in the show:

  • “You and I”
  • “Oh, This Year” (I did, however, cut out the coda at the end. It’s worth checking out, of course, but it would have made for some weird podcasting…)
  • “Suburban Hearts / Vigilante Hymns”

 

Oct 12, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Jace McLain. This time, he’s on to talk about his record label, Needlejuice Records. Currently they are running a Kickstarter to rerelease Logan Whitehurst’s opus, Goodbye, My 4-Track, on cassette, CD, and vinyl. We also talk about other releases from the label.

Songs played in the show (all by Logan Whitehurst and the Junior Science Club):

  • “The Robot Cat”
  • “The Ice Cream Man”
  • “Your Brain Fell Out”

 

Oct 5, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Rawrb from Psychostick. Their latest release is Do, a comedy metal album. It’s pretty freakin’ great!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Introvert Party Time”
  • “From the Heart”
  • “Uncle Material”

 

Sep 28, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to More or Les. His latest release is Nerd Love, a title which functions on multiple levels as you’ll hear in our discussion.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Nerd Love”
  • “Hidden in Plain Sight”
  • “Choose Your Own Avenger (Mighty Version)”

 

Sep 21, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Key Jay. His latest release is a video for his upcoming album, Project Kingdom XIII. We also talk about a couple of his previous releases that you can find on Spotify.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Sand Trap”
  • “Should I Stay”
  • “Side X Side”

 

Sep 14, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Ryako. Her debut release is Fangirl, an old-school nerdcore album which also features some pretty great cosplay in the accompanying PDF.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Starfleet Boys”
  • “Big Damn Heroes”
  • “Full of Stars”

 

Sep 7, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Sarah Donner. Her latest release is Broadway Nerds Sing Broadway which features many guests that have also appeared on this podcast. She’s also one half of the band Kittens Slay Dragons, a more electronic group that allows her to explore some different musical territory. Plus she’s a cat lover and makes “Covered in Kittens” videos in which she performs covers while surrounded by cats. Awesome!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Suddenly Seymour” (feat. Professor Shyguy)
  • “Lifetime”
  • “Gatekeeper”

 

Aug 31, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Mayor Wertz. His latest release is Try Harder, which is also his first full album as Mayor Wertz. It maintains his expected sense of humor, but it also feels more personal, something he talked about on his last appearance as well.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Public Policy Announcement”
  • “I Think I’m Gonna Die (My Girl’s Into True Crime)”
  • “Dad Life”

 

Aug 24, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to members of The Grammar Club. Their latest release is Live Slow. Die Whenever. It’s a noticeable step up in terms of production and “sophistication,” although you can still expect their usual experimental pop and sorta oddball sense of humor as well.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Live Slow. Die Whenever”
  • “Cookiepuss”
  • “Radio Chad”

 

Aug 17, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Mike Bryant of Kraken Not Stirred. This is a banked episode, recorded several months ago, so we talk about non-timely stuff. I did include a couple of his recent tracks just in case you’ve never checked him out before!

Songs played in the show:

  • “I Rolled a 20 When I Met You”
  • “The Droid I’m Looking For”

 

Aug 10, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk yet again to Mikal kHill (technically his fifth appearance, but one was a “team-up” with cecilnick). His latest release is the beachy keen EP which consists of surf rock versions of five of his tracks. As odd as that might sound, it’s actually really great because kHill and the band took it seriously even while having fun with it.

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Moon”
  • “R. Dorothy Wayneright”
  • “Punch Up”

 

Aug 3, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to MC Breath. His latest release is Creepshots, which features more story telling songs than his previous releases, but keeps his odd sense of humor and use of dialogue samples from the 70s and 80s.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Creepshots”
  • “I Wish I Was Dead”
  • “Molly McButter”

 

Jul 27, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Gray Rinehart. His most recent release, Distorted Vision, is actually from a few years ago, but he has a few new songs that you can hear when he performs live.

We also talk about his writing, including his Hugo nominated story, “Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Earth to Alluvium,” which unfortunately got caught up in the whole Sad Puppies / Rabid Puppies controversy (although Gray himself mostly stayed out of it. His reaction post, I think, demonstrates a measured response to the whole thing).

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Enemy’s Gate Is Down”
  • “Faded Coat of Brown”
  • “Dead Dog Party”

 

Jul 20, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Paul Melancon. He’s currently running a Kickstarter with the help of Angela Webber of the Doubleclicks. It’s for a concept album about a cartoon band called The Get-Gos. The album, The Get-Gos Action Hour!, is a tour “from depression to destruction to a very strange sort of redemption. All this through the kaleidoscope of Hanna-Barbera, Amazonian shaman, and hamburgers.” He’s also been making music for over 20 years now, so we get into some of his history, including a hiatus he took that lead to the making of this album.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Hyperventilate”
  • “Dark Double Bed” (from the album Hopeful Monsters by The Arts and Sciences)
  • “Makes No Sense at All” (Hüsker Dü cover from the Theme Music project)

 

Jul 13, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Insane Ian. This is a banked episode, appropriately recorded on April Fool’s Day 2018 (which was also Easter), so we talk about non-timely stuff. I included a couple of tracks from his most recent release, Yet Another B​-​Side Collection, which was actually released the day we recorded! Also, his Reviewsicals album is currently available for pre-order.

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Bowling Green Fabrication Society”
  • “Tuesday’s Song (Is Not Yet Posted)”

 

Jul 6, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to the members of dot.darkness. Their latest release is Polymorph, an eclectic mix of electronic music that started out as dumb ideas (their words, not mine!) and ended up as some really great songs!

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Hunger”
  • “Heart of the Battle”
  • “Loom”

 

Jun 29, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Grace Kendall. Their latest release is three “verifiably favorable discs” about A Series of Unfortunate Events (one for each book, plus a bonus track about Beatrice). They’ve also written many Harry Potter-based (wrock) tunes which you should check out as well.

Songs played in the show:

  • “My Best Friend”
  • “Carmelita Spats”
  • “Villains”

 

Jun 22, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Shubzilla and Bill Beats. Their latest release is Boomers V.2, their follow up to 2015’s Boomers. And listen for some details about upcoming releases as well!

Songs played in the show:

  • “I Told You So”
  • “Doing Fine”
  • “Broken Glass”

 

Jun 15, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to DJ Switch. His latest endeavor is Switch Box Tech, a YouTube channel where he reviews tech. Oh, and, yeah, we both realized later that I have actually been on his show before, but since he’s archived the episodes it’s no longer available. We are, however, working on getting me back on at some point.

 

Jun 8, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to three of the members of The Mad Gear. Their latest release is a soundtrack for a video game based on them, Go Right and Fight. As the name implies, it’s a cool 8-bit game reminiscent of Double Dragon and Ninja Gaiden but with its own twists on the genre. And the soundtrack fits perfectly, too.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Simon’s Theme”
  • “Act 1: Gonna Be a Jailbreak” – from the Go Right and Fight soundtrack
  • “Guile’s Theme”

 

Jun 1, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Greg Troyan of Lipstick. This is a banked episode, recorded back in late March, so we talk about non-timely stuff. We also recorded this before I was on The Lipstick Panel podcast in which we discussed the Paul Stanley 1978 self-titled solo album. I did include a couple of tracks from Lipstick’s most recent release, Lipstick II, though, just in case you’ve never checked them out before!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Girl Dressed as Sailor Moon”
  • “Rock ‘n’ Roll Anime Girls”

 

May 25, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to the Misbehavin’ Maidens. Their latest release is Sloppy Seconds, a rather raucous, ribald, and racy album of decidedly NSFW pirate / geeky / feminist songs.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Rummer, the Rumrunner”
  • “Aspirin ‘Twixt Our Knees”
  • “Alphabet Song”

 

May 18, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Derwood Bowen. His latest release is Sacre Boooo, a musically far-ranging comedy music album with both originals and parodies.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Pussycat Control”
  • “The Stupid, It Burns”
  • “The Mandela Effect”

 

May 11, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Metricula. Her debut release is the Songs for Gamers EP. She’s a filk artist who also dons clown make-up at least part of the time. And she has plenty of other content over on her Twitch channel as well, some of which is a bit more on the adult side of things.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Mtn Dew”
  • “Meownir”
  • “Battle Hymn of the Murder Hobos”
