Season 8, Episode 1 – Ryan Sorensen from Disraeli Dreamers Part One

September 28th, 2019

Seanorama, FastFretFingers, and CoreyGeek welcomes Ryan Sorensen to the podcast and opens the show talking about the Disraeli Dreamers, the Royal Albert, and Night Moves.

They get heavy on the local music scene, the health of it and the health of music venues. They talk about the changes in the laws and how that has changed the makeup of how venues make ends meet. What is the future of the scene and the proliferation of original bands playing tribute shows. What is a Tribute show and what does this mean to the scene?

Breaking news: the future of the Disraeli Dreamers and what is next. What are the economics? They break down attendance of these venues and the state of the music industry. What about bands playing covers in their sets? Do Tribute shows have any original material? They discuss pay scales between cover bands, tribute shows and all original shows. Should a cover band replicate what they are covering to a T or take it another direction? And who was that Ozzy Osborne cover band Sean and Todd saw?

Then the boys dip into more horror: McDonalds characters, the IT Movie, the current generation of horror movies, morals in scary films, and how they boys lived in their own horror movie.

Season 7, Episode 22 – Cover Songs, the best and the worst and John 5

September 9th, 2019

What is a cover song? According to Wikipedia:

In popular music, a cover version, cover song, revival, or simply cover, is a new performance or recording by someone other than the original artist or composer of a previously recorded, commercially released song.

In this episode, Seanorama and FastFretFingers talk about what makes up a cover song, and several instances of great ones and truly horrible ones. The question to ask yourself is this: is Baby Hit Me One More Time as performed by Britney Spears actually a cover of Max Martin’s version?

And we talk about the greatness of John 5!!!

SEPT. 04, 2019 05:00 - POD OF THUNDER

September 4th, 2019

A podcast was pulled this week and he explains why. Updated and changed to conform, he still has a few things to say about the music industry, the rules and regulations, and being made guilty out of the gate. Will they take down one of his favorite podcasts, Pod Of Thunder similarly?

He explains why the Pod Of Thunder Podcast is owed a thank you for some of Kiss' resurgence, how the industry should thank them and SeanGeek for what we try to do.

Pump Up The Volume invented Podcasting. It was a movie about pirate radio, yet that message has been lost on its studio. Happy Harry Hardon is still out there shouting "Talk Hard", and to the boys on Pod Of Thunder, continue to be the beam of light in a sea of corporate greed.
