ABOUT THIS EPISODE

It’s Summertime, and our hosts are in a nostalgic mood. The episode starts with some issues they’re having with pets, including the death of Nate’s horse, Lexi. They get on the subject of friends who have passed on, and discuss some odd happenings that make one question if there is something after this life. Then it’s time to revisit a legendary house party from back in the day. There was drinking, singing, fighting, some chain mail, and a whole lot of property damage. Nate’s Notes this episode is all about the cycle of coolness that any musical or fashion trend goes through. Things are cool, then they’re not, then they’re cool again! This week’s suggested listening is a band who sound plucked right out of 1987, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

I want to check it out a guid. Damn window yeah,don't I know it. It's perfectly in my palm too fuckin chuck a knuckleball with thatSen of a binch, I'm not really going to do that. Don't be calling athe onauthorities. One P, don't call Peta Peta to me. I associate with bread, butother people associate with he animal...

...rights. Yes, exactly just don't do thatto me. I will be kind to the little fucking furball. We had a mutual friend who passed awayfar too soon. As a matter of fact, we dedicated our first episode to him. Hehad a big impact on her lives again, a true blue great friend, and I had adream about him, the other night and it wasn't really an extravagant dream oranything. We Weldn't do anything too fancy the jest. We were just basicallysmoking, the but spoking dobus smoking butts and shooting the breeze sohmanyway I mean it happens from time to time. You remember people that youcared about rn, here's where it gets a little trippy Yo is. I have something:U Male, motification from? U SPS or whatever the fuckare called USP yeahthe postal service. The? U S Postal Service says I can't speak this episode.Please forgive me in advance, but anyway, yes and I get a scan of all mymail before it comes t my mailbox and there was a flyer in there and whosename was on it, not mine, but the name of the friend who Andew Jones, whopassed away. So I was really kind of fucking. Like I just got punched yeah,I was like Whoa Whoa Whoa. This is really just quite fucking,coincidential yeah Um and I'm not really a big believer in signs after life. Even I'm not even sure,really how to feel about that. I I don't really believe that spirits cometo visit you to to talk to you or anything Mahe. But what really botheredme? I think the most is that when you lose somebody so young MHMwe've had the luxury of growing older and, in my case yours as well mellowingout kind of like easing into adult hood, especially withthe lives that we led the crazy lives and we gained new perspectives on. Youknow everything in this world and understand ourselves better, and Ireally wish I could have a conversation with Andy onapn. I know I know like that. That was somethingthat I was like that really fucking bums me out Y 'cause. I really wouldlike to know where he would be now. I know kind of person would he havebecome. I think about that, all the time I there are so many times he's oneof those friends where there are so many things that I'll experience in mylife and I'll be like damn. You know. I almost think I can't wait to tell Andystill all these years later it's been like a decade plus since he's been gonebut like he was such a big part of our lives like yeah. It's I still yeah,we'll see things and say man. I can't wait to tellandy and then it hits meI'll be like Oh yeah, that's right and that sucks, but right, yeah or I'llthink what would he w LD h? What would he have thought about such and sugh orthe political climate right now, certain things, certain inventions? Youknow it's always weird to think of stuff like that. You know WHA. Theymissed out on all the shits. Andy was barely around for like smartphones andShit. You know a lot of a lot is changed, but any anyway yeah. That wasthat's a strange experiencement. You had the dream and then you had theweird postal service sort of mishap. That just was with his name. Likethat's well, the thing was, it was M, his name O my my address. Like Wha, the Fuckman 'cause. We wereall roommates too. We all live together at certain points. You know. I knowit's just really just way to again to repeat coincidental yeah, it's juststrange and again, just the day after I had that fucking dream, where I woke up really emotionald justbeing like man. I missed that mother Fucker, Oh wait! I got an email, whatthe fuck- and you know this is just I don't know, and how about you do youbelieve in like signs or anything? Is that something that would like? Youknow, alert you that maybe someode's trying to communicate with you orsomething like that? Well, I never have, and I I am really sensitive in a meaning. I get angry kindof quicklyabout the whole. Medium thing, like the industry of saying that, they're speaking to yourdead, loved Waa, Thaa reses me off, but as skeptical as I am with all thesethings, I had one sort of period in my life where I experienced not one butlike two things that really kind of made me ques. I could not explain them,and so my roommate I've mentioned onanother episode. I believe I I found him d. It was sadsatuation but righthisfamily. I was still staying there with his wife, his wife's mother and Theire,three kids, which were eight seven and like an infant like one and e h. Soanyway, t he had recently doe very recent and theapartment was like a basement apartment...

...and there was an area where you couldwalk in and that's where all the the boiler or the whatever the furnace, allthat shit like in some storage like the actual basement basic 'cause, we're onthe basement level, but we did have access to like the buildings, theapartment buildings basement right there. You know Righ t yeah, I followyeah, so there were a bunch of it was just a bunch of shit like therewere toys, like all the kids stuff that they didn't play with anymore, that I'mtalking like there was a whole room. That was just like a pile of toys and one day we're here. I hear this littlesinging. It was like a little Spanish. It sounded like a toy singing and um th.The mother in law that was living wit, was like, Oh, my God, she's starting tofreak out and where so we I don't know why. So we're going in the the storage area. 'cause, that's whereit's coming from and I'm picking up toys like, I can hear it coming fromthis pilot's boy moving toys around, and I find I finally find it's likethis little doll. But it's one of these dolls, where you have to hold each ofits hands like you're playing ring around the rosy or something in theconnection. There's like a little metal spot on each hand and when you make theconnection by holding its hands with your body, it completes the circuit Ind.The thing Sax Ri, all Rit Stufing, but it wasn't touching anything like I andyou could say well. Was it touching like another toy that was Whateverhtiwareembright? Well, that's where I was wondering. Maybe when the battery getslow, it starts singing. You know certain things do shilly, so it may itmost likely has a rational explanation, but it was freaky at the time 'cause.The Guy had recently died ind this toy. I guess the story was the father whohad passed away had gone out of his way to find a doll that Sang Thi Song inSpanish or sang in Spanish at all back then. I suppose now Youd probably findmore Spanish speaking toys, but this was years ago and you didn't see it asmuch it as more rare yeah and Vola yeah, and he found this doll like he wenthunting for a doll that sang in Spanish and that's what it w he found it. Itwas special. So that's why it was Kindo like this weird thing like the daughterwas home. She was, you know, crying and all this shit, but Um. It was very,very weird at the time and like I sayd it probably t has a rationalexplanation, but it felt weird and the other one just quickly was the sameapartment, same situation. He had recently died and there we s one ofthese, a birthday candle that I don't knowwhen you light it or whatever it starts like playing a little song. I don't know if you have to hit aswitch on the thing. It's got a little electronic TINGUMA BOB on, but it's acandle. You light it on and you blow it out, but it's okay, but it's a noveltything race. I've never seen one and he as you to me. It just makes a littlesounds like like a music box sort of sound coming out of it and they had iton like the frame of the door like above the doorway just kind of proppedup there. It just started playing and no one had touched it. No one had litit, but it was from his birthday cake the year beforeor whatever so there were just t. It was two weird situations and then, inthat apartment we had been. We found out later that the same room where hehad committed suicide. There was another the I don't know if it was thetenant right before us or the one before that had passed away in thatsame room, but from some kind of art attack or something but yeah there wassome death in that apartment. It was, it was strange, feel like it was like. Maybe hauntedlike at the time at the time you N W. Did you really think it was a sign, Ithink, Yeah Ba? First of all back then I was a little more openminded withthings the world had crushed my sense of bounder and magic yeah, you kno. No, I just yeah. I don't really believein any of that S. I just have never there's never been any concreteevidence, anything recorded anything scientifically provent, nothing thatcouldn't be explained ever ever throughout history, throwroomscientific history. So I'm starting to think. Maybe there's nothing to getworked up about, but I don't know the argument is that you can't? Maybe youcan't measure things like that? Maybe there's no scientific way to to youknow quantify that, but whatever it is, I felt freaked out in that apartment. Iwould ave gotten a fuck out of her. This is enough. The singing doll is onething yeah, but then the candle starts singing oh Jeez see a Leda fucking Goa,I'm out ND. It was a little strange but...

...uh, but whatever I nowadays, I'm just likeO thereas, some malfunctioning, fucking birthday presents or whatever in thatapartment. That's I don't know sh, so I we'll never know it could have beensame thing with my dream. I mean I, I really don't know and that's why I wantto implore anybody who's listening.

I was a child of thenineteen eighties and a teenager in the nineties. We all have a funniss for ourrespective formative years and for the fashion and entertainment providedduring those times embarrassing, as it may seem in the following decades. I recall seeing pictures and watchingmovies from the sixties and seventies as a kid and like ribbing, my folks forthe styles and Lingo of their generation. I couldn't imagine whysomeone would wear bell bottoms or rock and Affro when we were so cool, wefeathered our mullets and war denam jackets. My mother would often tell usthat fashion is cyclical and before we knew it, we would be rocking all thestuff. We were currently mocking no way said precocious little knee andmy tiny basketball, shorts and frank he says, relax shirt. My brother and Ithought we were so cool like trying to mimic the moves we would see on breakdancing shows. I would put on a clip on earring that hung down almost to myshoulder and I cut the sleeves off like a camouflage army jacket that went wellwith my fingerless black bike gloves. I was cool in that get up complete withmy spiked hair and rattail way, cooler than those hippies and disco freaksfrom the previous decade. But that's the thing before I knew it. Thenineties had hit the hair spray and eighties flare seemed passe onceNirvana made it more cool to just seem, like you didn't, give a fuck aboutfashion, just wear, flannel and jeans with holes in 'em. Let your hair gounwashed and greasy. If you want the fashion of the eighties was becomingcheesy and silly, then I saw a video by the dance pseudo rave happy bands dlight. The music was new, but it had elements of disco and the video was aSixtie psychodelic throwback, the sexy slinky singer, lady misskeere wriggledaround and a almost painted on skin type colorful cat suit, and she wassuperimposed over this. Like calydascopic background, it felt likean updated scene from N Thonineteen, sixty seven Peterfonda film, the tripit had the same sort of visual feel as the INAGOT, a dvita video by IronButterfly, very groovy. Indeed, which leads me to the next musical benchmarkof the Nineteen Nineti is the rave scene, the Rave scene in techno orelectronic. A genre title. That kind of makes me gag even more than the term.GRUNGE was definitely futuristic in tone. Electronic Beats, samples andmodern synth sounds went well with the laser lights and the decore inherent inmost of the underground and eventually mainstream parties, we'd attend asdance happy teenagers, but the hebonistic attitude of just takingdrugs hooking up with people on similar drugs sharing drugs and just dancinguntil dawn. It had a bit of that nineteen. Seventy studio, fifty fourdisco Fiel, even the Affros, were coming back. Our giant legged Jinkopants weren't, quite bell bottoms, but they flared out by the time they got toyour feet. So the spirit was there: Wouldn't you know it? My mother wasright, there's nothing wrong with being inspired by your fourbears in Shit. Ifa particular genre or a scene that has come and gone was so popular that ithad a definite place in the public...

...consciousness that it only makes sensethat it will return to rear its ugly head once again in the future. Theweight tastes change in the constant tendency for artists to innovate makesit only natural that there is a finite shelf life for any musical fad,especially in the field of Pop music and since musical artists tend to havea specific look or style that either inspires or is inspired by the currentculturals I gist depending on the artist. It only makes sense that therewill be a time when the whole package of said artists will make people cringeafter a certain length of time. But what also seems more and more apparentas popular music as a concept gets older and older? Is that even thatcringefactor eventually fades away in passe, Morf intoretro old school caneither be an insult or just a descriptive term, depending on theintent of the speaker kind of like the term Jew you Ko, think about it. There are always retrobands breakingthrough that sound like an achronisms when surrounded by other pop singlesfilling the airways. I remember I was like eleven or twelve when the BlackCrows released their cover of Odos reddings hard to handle. On a side note,it never fails to amaze me how many bands there are whose breakout hit is acover of an existing song. But you know at this topic for another natt's nose.The Black Rowse went on to release a ton of Classic Blues Rock singles whichhave all not only charted but are all genuinely well written songs, and Iguess enough time had passed for Frilly, paisly, shirts and actual bell bottomsto finally be cool again. Yeah, the Nineti s marked the end ofthe nineteen seventies UNHYPNIS sentence. That seems to be the formula.The previous decade is uncool, but the one before it is ok to be influenced byor to show respect to. That's why, during that era of Grungand Electronica,the nineteen eighties seemed so grossly loud and excessively neon colored, themullet suddenly looked so trashy. The virtuosic guitarsoloing of someone likeingve Mounstein was basically being scoffed at by kids, who could kindesstring together, three or four bar cords and start their own nervanawanabealternative band any of the synth driven, electro or hiphop of the nineteen eighties that got any play at all was only being sampledironically to throw in like DJ, sets and make people giggle, while theydanced the acid or ecstasy through their systems. It was only after theturn of the century that you saw bands that were genuinely inspired by andshowing respect to, the sweet. Melodies of bands like tears, for fears and topeshmode bands like Derandaran and new order started, drawing huge crowdsagain on tour. Even bans like wasp and striper Cinderella and vixen got backon the road. The White Snake Song here I go again seems to be everywhere, andmy stepson joeey loves it and things of it as this classic rock song that itprobably is. I just have a hard time, not smiking a little when I hear it,somethings I'll always find a little corny. There have even been bands thatbite the style of eighty's acts, not just audibly but visually in a fashionsense, just as the Black Crows brought the whole feel of a seventies rockbands to the era of November rain, excess and, like I don't know, C ANDC,music factory pop a few bands like the darkness and Steel Panther, werethoroughly embracing leopard print outfits, hair spray and like silkscarves, as they shamelessly belted out their updated glamb metal, completewith Frilly Guitar Solos. Speaking of Guitar Sos, I will say that the newgenerations appreciation for that era of arpegios and finger tapping has donea world of good for the genre of technical death metal. It's right therein the name. The stuff is seriously complex and meticulously written no reason to feel silly about beingguitarnered. The competition is fierce...

...nowadays and I would put up theguitarist of any number of tech death bands from archspire to the zenithpassage against Invamounstein or Joe Satriani any day, but back to thesubject at hand, one area of eighties music that has inspired a lot of bansas well. This millennium is in the area that spans postpunk to like scynth popor even goth. You can hear evidence of this in banslike the killers and the icy sound of eighty cinth found their way intocountless bands like crystal castles or even Canadian nerd star child inpotential MSS Elon Musk grimes. There was even that period in the earlytwo, thousands when it seemed like everyone wanted to be joy, division, orat least they aped in courtises, unique, vocal style, the most popular of whichbeing Interpol, I'm not particularly thrilled about the prospect of Morbanslike rat or quiet riot, but if you're going to bring back the sound of thecure or killing joke or even to Pashmode, I say bring it on. There aresome parts of the eighties that I personally never fell out of love with,and it's good to hear a band like this week's suggested listening. DrapMajesty, do it so wellthey take elements of bands like slowdive in thechameleons but and a lair of those icy, sinths and weve in a persona thatreferences ufo cults, like the Unarians and the heavens gate people drapmajestyis a band that conjures up not just in nostalgia for the eighties, but areally inhuman, almost alien image. Their style fits right into my tastes.So as much as I complain about the nostalgia industry in what low hangingfruit, it can be to rehash things from the past that are already provensuccessful. There are definitely some aspects of the past that I don't mindseeing further explored, so that was my long winded little owdto not just the eighties, but to the fact that things have their cycle there, cool they'recheesy and how did we ever like them and then they're, retro and cool again?So it's like there's just that pattern, but I'm happy that we're seeing a lotof these postpunk and Kinda scynth poppy sort of bands coming back'cause, I don't know Dave. How did you feel about the Drap Majesty' Song? Didyou dig it at all? I did dig it lrigt. I've recently got one. Finally, you didyou did I I mean I didn't really listen to lyrics Mo yeah, but just the toneand the bibe from the song I enjoyed, because I've recently been wonderingI'm like how come there's not a band out there or not, that I've heard thatjust summons up the eighties as the eighties right doesn't try toincorporate T in like a new style like Youe kind of alluding to or just littleelements of it. But t really just brings it all in the table, and I hearda lot of that here. I mean it- couldhave been a heavy reverb going onin the guitars and stuff, but it actually reminded me a little bit notcompletely but tin machines. Okay, so I heard a little Bif f those elementsgoing on and I I dug it. I thought it was a very good pick you mentioned, didyou like it and got all excited when I said yes, because normally you'repicking these tones and they're? Not Really, you know yeah my alley, butthis one this one, I definitely did enjoy all right, I'm Gladman 'cause, I feel like this is an example of one of the like the style of a bandthat you and I would have shared appreciation for like we were both curefans. We both dig a bunch of depeshmod stuff nd. Wecould we can Kinda, we have diverging tastes, but there are a few things thatwe agree on and those are some of them. You know so I figured this one would be somewhat abarely anyway, I'm glad it isfor next week we will check out a band...

...that I briefly mentioned along withzeal and ardor a few episodes ago. Alsest is a band from France thatcreate beautiful atmospheres in this song, which is the title track from theCODAMA. Album is a perfect example of what they do again. It's called KudamaK, od Ama by the band alsest, which is Al Cest, but, of course I'll post, alink to it on facebook to make it easier to check it out and we'll have alittle chat about it. Next episode. Well, what the fuck are you doing? Man?What the fuck is? This listen. I just told you I was digging to eightiesvibes and now you're going back the whole European death metal scene. No, Ithink this is I'm not going to even bring up the fact that it's it comesfrom a black metal start 'cause, it's so far removed fromthat. If I hadn't mentioned them during that that segment, I don't think you'deven know that that's where theyre their influences lie 'cause. They havecome so far I'll get into that next week. I have afeeling it'll at least be more up your alley than a lot of the stuff that I'veI've picked. Okay, I'L G I'll give you that, because even the zeal and artorstuff to me wasn't traditional when you said it was black metal or somethinglike I I mean I get it, but I don't you know I mean not being a fan of thegenre like ecause, there's other things in play there right. So you know I'msure, that's the case here as well, because you're not just giving us likestereotypical nots, fucking screen core metal noever label you want to throw onit, there's always going to be Meani' twisting there thasalsst actuallydoesn't have any shouting or it's all singing it's. You you'll hear it, but it's it's a lotmore easy to listen to Tham, even Zaanarder Ey! Listen! If I don't likeit the following nates notes: You got to do some michalmcdonalds for me allright. We you go or hit me with some yacht rockor something n those kind of ways you know hey. You know what, though, we'renearing the end of the show and before we do go, I didn't want to mention acouple of quick things before I forget one is.

Everything else like that and you knowjust want to say thank you to Jack.
