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)”

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”

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.

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”

 

May 4, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to my geek-adjacent wife, Karen Walker, about her thoughts on geek music and this podcast. She actually requested to be on, and I’ve been wanting to have on fans of geek music, so this seemed like a good opportunity to do exactly that. The closest thing to planning that we did was that I gave her the questions in advance, something I don’t typically do. We didn’t discuss her answers, although obviously I had some kind of idea what most of them would be. But she did bring up some stuff that I wasn’t necessarily expecting, so it makes for an interesting discussion, I think.

Songs played in the show (as chosen by Karen and myself):

  • “Hot Topic Is Not Punk Rock” by MC Lars
  • “Anything But Plain” by Marc with a C
  • “Cats at Parties” by The Doubleclicks

 

Apr 27, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Mikey Mason. His latest release is Driven. It’s a much more diverse collection of songs than his previous albums, both musically and lyrically, with a mix of his usual comedy with a couple more serious songs.

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Opposite of Cool”
  • “Monkey”
  • “Electric Monk”

 

Apr 20, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Aramis. His latest release is Virtuoso. He’s also released a single, “Pride,” which you should check out. And there should be a new EP to keep an eye out for soon!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Push” (feat. Ambush Vin)
  • “Spike Spiegel”
  • “Pride” (feat. DJ Monk Matthaeus)

 

Apr 13, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to B of BType (that’s now technically the band name, but it’s also still kinda his name so it gets a bit weird). Their latest release is the Grey EP. It’s quite a departure from their usual chip-hop music, but it’s another worthy entry to their catalog.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Grey”
  • “MomentaryVoluntaryChemicalLobotomy”
  • “Alexa Bliss”

 

Apr 6, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Marian Call. Her latest release is Standing Stones. It came out last yet, but just around the time I went on hiatus. I’d been wanting to have her on since I came back, but I’ll admit I kinda had to work up the courage to email her. I’m so glad I finally did! I learned so much about the album, making me appreciate it even more than I already did. If you haven’t yet given it a listen, you really owe it to yourself to set aside some time to listen to it in full without distraction. It’s so worth it!

Oh, also she has an online concert over on Concert Window on April 21st, so watch and donate if you can.

Songs played in the show:

  • “No Paper”
  • “Standing Stones”
  • “Grandpa Had It Right”

 

Mar 30, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to two of the members of Zero Day Exploits. Their debut album is Tales from the Not Too Distant Future. It’s a worthy addition to the geek rock canon.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Henchman”
  • “When I Come Down”
  • “Far to Go”

 

Mar 23, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to members of the Radioactive Chicken Heads. Their latest release is Tales from the Coop, but you should definitely check out their videos as well. As we mention in the episode, they’re very much a visual band!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Frankenchicken”
  • “Cluck at the Moon”
  • “Wiccan Chicken”

 

Mar 16, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to int80 of Dual Core. Their latest release is Downtime, an album five years in the making that really reflects the lives of int80 and C64 during that time.

Songs played in the show:

  • “For Aaron”
  • “Urban Explorers (featuring Sulfur)”
  • “ShowerCon”

 

Mar 9, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to one half of the band Crunk Witch. Their latest release is their self-titled fourth album which just came out a few days before this podcast went up. It’s an excellent introduction to their style if you’ve never heard them before, and if you have – well, it’s an excellent continuation of what you already know and love!

Songs played in the show (as suggested by Brandon himself!)

  • “Sweat & Burn”
  • “Drive”
  • “Hit the Lights”

 

Mar 2, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Marc Gunn. His latest release is As Long as I’m Flyin’, a Firefly-inspired album. We also talk about his wonderful Pirates vs. Dragons concept album as well.

Songs played in the show:

  • “The Long Arm”
  • “Reaver’s Lullaby” (I think that’s what we were talking about)
  • “Sail the Sky”

 

Feb 23, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Daenerys and the Targaryens. Their latest release is Drowned God, an album all about characters from Game of Thrones.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Drogo He Didn’t?!”
  • “Little Finger, Super Spy!”
  • “Jorah’s House”

 

Feb 16, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to The Faithful Sidekicks. Their latest release is Achievement Unlocked. It’s a fun album about all sorts of different fandoms and stuff that you should definitely check out!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Achievement Unlocked”
  • “I Am Not a Gun”
  • “One with the Force”

 

Feb 9, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Marc with a C. His latest release is Obscurity, which you should definitely order on vinyl. And be sure to listen to as much of his back catalog as you can in anticipation – you’ll be rewarded if you do! Oh, and while you’re at it – check out my review of it here.

Songs played in the show:

  • “Low Rent Truman Show”
  • “One of These Are Gonna Be Your Day”
  • “Terribly Popular”

  • “Glasses”
  • “L.E.X.”

 

Jan 26, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Ambush Vin. His latest release is FandomTape Vol. I, which also features “DLC,” the first of which is available now! Unsurprisingly, we get into a discussion about Star Wars: The Last Jedi that does include some spoilers, but I’ve included a spoiler alert to let you know how much to skip if you still haven’t seen it somehow but also still care about avoiding spoilers…

Songs played in the show:

  • “Powerman”
  • “Rogue Squad (feat. The Abnormal)”
  • “Why Cosplay?”
