On this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk to Austin and Nathan from Smashy Claw. I only recently discovered this band via Insane Ian’s recommendation, and I quickly gave their album, Former Spine, an Honorable Mention of my favorite albums of 2014 (since it came out in 2013). They show a clear influence from one of my favorite bands, They Might Be Giants, both lyrically and musically. In this episode, we talk about Nanobots, the ending of The Killing Joke, Breaking Bad (again), and which Iron Man is the best. Unfortunately this episode is going up just after Austin’s solo show at the University of Colorado-Denver on Feb. 24th. I hope it went well for him.
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talked to one of my favorite geeky artists, Marc with a C. I first became a fan of Marc's when he released Motherfuckers Be Bullshittin' back in 2011, although I probably saw him at Nerdapalooza 2010 when I had almost no idea who anyone was. But it was really his next full length album, Popular Music, that made me into the rabid fan I am today. I've since gone back and bought everything I can get my hands on, including all of the vinyl albums. In fact, Marc is the one who showed me how great vinyl can be.
In this interview, we talk about his new album, Exactly Where I Am, the nerd music tribe, bad movies (especially Nightmare on Elm Street), and even why Marc is perpetually blue (and if you get that reference before listening, then give yourself 10 geek points).
For this inaugural episode, I interview Jace and Kyle from Nuclear Bubble Wrap. We discuss the new album as well as some exciting revelations about the future, and there’s some talk of Breaking Bad as well. I’m still getting the hang of this, so I hope it sounds OK.
