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

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.

  • “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 2, 2018

Songs played in the show:

  • “Artist Anthem”
  • “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?”

Jan 12, 2018

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Ol’ Dirty Dada (aka Stevie D from Illbotz) and Grandmaster Jax (his 5-year-old son) of Knuckleheadz. Their latest release is No Sleep Till Bedtime, which is basically Illbotz for kids – but definitely something that can be enjoyed by adults as well!

  • “Na-Na-Na-Na-Boo-Boo”
  • “Temper Tantrum”
  • “Like a Million Bucks”

 

Jan 5, 2018

Dec 29, 2017

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Angela Webber from The Doubleclicks. Their latest release is Love Problems. And this one went much better than the last one did since I wasn’t going all fanboy in my head! Oh, and the Captain Phasma book and comic are just as fantastic as Angela said!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Wrong About Gender”
  • “Lord of the Rings”
  • “Extra Gin”

  • “Hulk!”
  • “Thor's Big Silver Hammer”
  • “Rocket & Groot”

 

Nov 24, 2017

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Juliana Finch. She’s promoting her upcoming album which she’s funding through Kickstarter. I was introduced to Juliana by Angela from the Doubleclicks since she is now recording on Doubleclicks Records. Although her music is not particularly geeky, she is definitely one of us. Be sure to check out her music then go back the Kickstarter.

  • “Nasty Weather”
  • “Anti-Socialize”
  • “This Is Just the Start”

 

Nov 17, 2017

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Greg and Steve from Lipstick. Although Lipstick II came out back in January, we hadn’t yet talked about it for the podcast. It’s a much geekier album than their debut, something which might have been polarizing out in the larger music community (as we talked about in the episode), but I suspect won’t be here!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Fake Nerd Girl”
  • “Cha La Head Cha La”
  • “Lipstick Encourages You to Have Fun at Our Shows but Not at the Expense of Other Concert Goers”

 

Nov 10, 2017

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Baba Brinkman. His latest release is The Rap Guide to Consciousness. Like all of his rap guides, it’s highly informative while also being entertaining. Check them out and learn something (unless you’re a p-zombie, of course)!

Songs played in the show:

  • “Good Bayesian (feat. MC Lars and Mega Ran)”
  • “Ready for Implants”
  • “Zombie”

 

Nov 3, 2017

In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Mike Bryant of Kraken Not Stirred. His latest release is the Robots vs. Monsters EP, but you should also check out his YouTube channel for “more of this sort of foolishness.”

Songs played in the show:

  • “Make Way for the Singularity”
  • “I’ve Been in this Fight Since I Was Six Years Old”
  • “Dragons Are Cool”
