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”

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)

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”
