The Band: A History - Moondog Matinee: Part One

"That was all we could do at the time. We couldn't get along—we all knew that fairness was a bunch of shit. We all knew we were getting screwed, so we couldn't sit down and create no more music. 'Up on Cripple Creek' and all that stuff was over—all that collaboration was over, and that” said Levon reflecting on the period just prior to the recording of "Moondog Matinee".In 1971, "Rock of Ages" had led to an unofficial hiatus for The Band. Independently, The Band worked on various projects separately whether it was producing, writing or performing. There were also attempts at getting The Band back together to work on their next studio album. Though, none of those attempts led to anything fruitful. Richard hadn’t written a song, or at least presented a song to the group in some time and Robbie wasn’t offering up much either since he was hitting some serious writer’s block. Eventually, The Band came out of touring retirement in 1973. Which led to a legendary performance at Watkins Glen with The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers. Feeding off the energy of their live performances and feeling like more of a collective again, and hoping at reviving the creative juices needed to keep on producing albums for Capitol Records it was decided that an album of covers which eventually led to "Moondog Matinee".Please Consider Following Us: Instagram: @TheBandPodcastTwitter: @TheBandPodcastFacebook: /TheBandPodcastThe Band: A History is part of Pantheon Podcasts.

No Filler: Stone Temple Pilots - Purple

Stone Temple Pilots saw huge success with their testosterone-filled debut album Core, but struggled to gain any love from the Cobain acolytes who insisted they weren't truly grunge (they were from San Diego after all). After a stint of touring and loads of in-fighting, the band returned to the studio to record their second record. Less than one month later, the band emerged with a sound that was uniquely theirs, incorporating elements of psychedelic, country, and blues-rock with the grunge flavor from Core. Purple debuted in June of 1994 at number one on the charts, and went on to sell 3 million copies after just four months.Tracklist Stone Temple Pilots - Interstate Love Song Stone Temple Pilots -Dead & Bloated Stone Temple Pilots -Lounge Fly Stone Temple Pilots -Silvergun Superman Stone Temple Pilots -Army Ants Twin Peaks - Casey's Groove Twin Peaks - I Found A New Way Scattle - Humanize Stone Temple Pilots - Andy Warhol (David Bowie Cover) This show is part of the Pantheon Podcast Network.***For a limited time only, use the promo code NOFILLER at adamandeve.com for 50% off one item plus other some FREE stuff!!

See Hear 73: The Kids Are Alright

The gents at See Hear Podcast want to pose some questions. Do you mind other guys dancing with your girl? Can we buy your magic bus? Have you ever seen pictures of Lily? Can you hear us? Who are you? Deep philosophical questions indeed. The Who were that type of band – funny, furious and filosophical.....Welcome to episode 73 of See Hear Podcast.Tim, Bernie and Maurice welcome back Marvellous Mike White of The Projection Booth Podcast to discuss the 1979 Who “documentary” The Kids Are Alright” (not to be confused with the 2010 film with Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo). Jeff Stein's film is certainly not a documentary in the traditional sense (no chronology, no talking heads retrospectively outlining the history). It IS a celebration of who The Who were up to Keith Moon's death. It shows their ferociousness and humour as a band....so in that sense, even if we discover little about the events that shaped them, by film's end, we know what made them great.The crew discuss the film, their own connections to The Who's music, sensationalism versus art, Pete's penchant for beating up people on stage, Keith's habit of destroying hotel rooms, and many other Who-vian peripherals.Is the show worth tuning into? You better, you bet......Huge thanks once again to Mike White for joining us for this one and being a supporter of our show.

Deeper Digs: Sex Pistols - The End is Near with Kevin Cummins

Christian sits down with Ex-NME photographer Kevin Cummins to discuss his new book, SEX PISTOLS: The End is Near 25.12.77.On Christmas Day 1977, the Sex Pistols played their final UK gig. Kevin Cummins was the only professional photographer to document the event. He stood with the band onstage, captured the raw energy of the Sex Pistols at the top of their game. Just three weeks later, after a brief US tour, the band imploded.By the end of 1977, the Sex Pistols had been banned from virtually every town in Britain. But at Ivanho's nightclub in Huddersfield they found a receptive audience. They played two charity gigs on Christmas Day, raising money for the families of striking firemen. The afternoon shift was for the kids, with expletives removed from lyrics and Christmas presents and cake given out - and paid for by the band. In the evening, with Kevin Cummins in their midst, the Sex Pistols thundered through their setlist. Forget the lurid headlines, the righteous outrage, this was the real Sex Pistols, playing from the heart.Kevin Cummins is an internationally renowned British rock photographer, known for his collaborations with Mick Jagger, Ian Curtis, Morrissey, The Smiths, Bowie, Joy Division and more. He was chief photographer at the New Musical Express for ten years, then the world's biggest selling rock weekly. His portraits feature in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery and The V&A. Kevin has also published several critically acclaimed monographs on the artists with whom he has worked.https://www.amazon.com/Sex-Pistols-End-Near-25-12-77/dp/1788840615/ref=sr_1_1?crid=16INIW2ZYDRNO&dchild=1&keywords=sex+pistols+the+end+is+near+25.12.77&qid=1586890055&sprefix=sex+pistols%3A+the+end+is%2Caps%2C206&sr=8-1http://www.kevincummins.co.uk/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Deeper Digs in Rock: 1973 - Rock at the Crossroads

The Rock N Roll Archaeologists welcomes back the man named after three presidents, Andrew Grant Jackson, where he digs deep into his latest book, 1973: Rock at the Crossroads. 1973 was the year rock hit its peak while splintering―just like the rest of the world. Ziggy Stardust travelled to America in David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane. The Dark Side of the Moon began its epic run on the Billboard charts, inspired by the madness of Pink Floyd's founder, while all four former Beatles scored top ten albums, two hitting #1.FM battled AM, and Motown battled Philly on the charts, as the era of protest soul gave way to disco, while DJ Kool Herc gave birth to hip hop in the Bronx. The glam rock of the New York Dolls and Alice Cooper split into glam metal and punk. Hippies and rednecks made peace in Austin thanks to Willie Nelson, while outlaw country, country rock, and Southern rock each pointed toward modern country. The Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, and the Band played the largest rock concert to date at Watkins Glen.Led Zep’s Houses of the Holy reflected the rise of funk and reggae. The singer songwriter movement led by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell flourished at the Troubadour and Max’s Kansas City, where Bruce Springsteen and Bob Marley shared bill. Elvis Presley’s Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite was NBC’s top-rated special of the year, while Elton John’s albums dominated the number one spot for two and a half months.Just as U.S. involvement in Vietnam drew to a close, Roe v. Wade ignited a new phase in the culture war. While the oil crisis imploded the American dream of endless prosperity, and Watergate’s walls closed in on Nixon, the music of 1973 both reflected a shattered world and brought us together.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1250299985/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0https://us.macmillan.com/author/andrewjackson-authorhttps://twitter.com/1965book?lang=en Learn more about your ad choices.

Deeper Digs: Murder in the Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene with Adam Dubin

This is part one of a very special two part dig into the Bay Area music scene of the late 70’s - early 90’s. We have two documentaries teed up that discuss the two biggest genres of the times, Thrash Metal and Punk.First up is a discussion with Adam Dubin, director for Murder in the Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Scene! In the early 1980’s, a small group of dedicated Bay Area headbangers shunned the hard rock of MTV and Hollywood hairspray bands in favor of a more dangerous brand of metal that became known as thrash! From the tape trading network to the clubs to the record stores and fanzines, director Adam Dubin reveals how the scene nurtured the music and the music spawned a movement.  Murder In The Front Row is told through powerful first person testimony and stunning animation and photography. The film is a social study of a group of young people defying the odds and building something essential for themselves.Adam Dubin set out to chronicle the ‘80s Bay Area thrash scene in Murder in the Front Row -- an uncensored and boisterous documentary set for release early in 2019. And Murder is certainly a must-watch for hard rock fans; the film contains over fifty interviews with various metal stalwarts (including Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament and Death Angel), telling its tall tales through a mix of first-person interviews, animation and narration by comedian Brian Posehn. But first and foremost, “these are just good stories, and they are very human stories,” says Dubin. “And anyone I’ve shown this to, even those who don't really like the music, have really responded to it."Narratively, MITFR follows the story of a group of young kids in Northern California with a shared passion for heavy rock bands like UFO, Iron Maiden and Motorhead. “All these bands were mainly from England, and they never really toured the West Coast,” says Dubin. “So these young people started creating their own music, starting their own fanzines, booking clubs and trading tapes. These were people who were adamant about music and the bands, but also each other.” Dubin, a veteran music and comedy documentarian who got his start co-directing a few classic videos for the Beastie Boys (“Fight For Your Right to Party,” “No Sleep ‘til Brooklyn”), was certainly an ideal match for the film’s subject matter. The New York native and NYU graduate (where he roomed with mega-producer Rick Rubin) has directed a number of documentaries for Metallica over the years, including their multi-platinum “A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica Parts 1 & 2,” "Hit the Lights: The Making of Metallica Through the Never" and "Freeze 'em All: Metallica in Antarctica," along with the band’s music video for “Nothing Else Matters.” On a personal level, Dubin thinks MITFR serves as a natural evolution for him as a filmmaker and storyteller. “If there’s one theme that runs through all my work, from the Beastie Boys to Metallica to Murder in the First Row, it’s all an attempt to reveal a central truth of rock’n’roll.” https://mitfr.com/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JImsHFVztGI Learn more about your ad choices.
