Somebody Likes It: Episode 44: Rocket to Russia

“So that’s how it’s gonna be”–Kevin (probably what he is gonna say)

Once upon a time, there were three long time friends that decided to record a very opinionated music oriented podcast. Then one day, “Dad” went on vacation and “Little Brother” and “Other Dude” decided to “fuck shit up”…and “Producer Mark” a.k.a. “The Adult” let them run amok (Thanks Producer Mark, or should I thank your “Cocktails”).

Ok, that is getting tedious. Basically Kevin went on vacation, and Phil Ajjarapu joined Ryan and Mark and myself in a spirited discussion of the Ramone’s third album Rocket to Russia…A fine time was had by all.

But then it got a little more “Please tell Mom not to listen to this Episode-y”.

Phil was (kinda) coerced into picking Smell Yo Dick for the video in “A Few Minutes With”…and I had already said I was picking War on Drugs:Suck My Cock by Sun Kil Moon for “A Current Affair”, so all of a sudden it was like taking a corner in a dune buggy and then the dune buggy stalls out and tips over. But just like I would imagine that everyone riding in said buggy would crawl out laughing, so did we (until Chris Cox and Kevin Newsum hear the show).

Next week: You will experience the brilliance of Kilroy Was Here by Styx. Do I hear a Mr. Roboto chant building??? Shane

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Sup dudes – you guys need to cover the Stone Roses second album “Second Coming” – it’s the album that I prefer. The reason being that their first album is too synthey. The second album is way meatier musically although the lyrics are a little better on the first.

      There aren’t any synths on that record. At least not as major players in the sound. However, there’s a ton of reverb and delay on vocals and guitar, so it sounds a little washy at times?

    Hey man, just got home from recording the show tonight. We talked about “Second Coming” as per your suggestion. It was our first listener suggested album, and we definitely mentioned you. So thanks. It was a fun show. I didn’t like the album, so sorry in advance…(sad trombone) But I love the Stone Roses’ first album, and we got a super-fan in to guest, so I feel like it was pretty balanced. Show should be out in about 3 weeks…keep sending suggestions! And tell people about the show!

      wait, I just saw you say “The Foz” is better that “I am the resurrection”? You’re kidding right?
