The Dark Stuff Podcast 118: Rick Galusha
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400-720x720+163+0_9990531.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For episode 118, I interview <strong>Rick Galusha</strong>. <strong>Rick</strong> has been a fixture in the Omaha music community for decades. For around 25 years, Rick worked for the <strong>Homer's Record Store</strong> chain. He began as a clerk behind the counter at the chain's first store, and worked his way up to being president of the company.</p> <p><strong>Homer's</strong> began in Omaha with one store. By the 1990s, <strong>Homer's</strong> had 17 locations in Nebraska and Iowa, and had bought out its two local competitors. As the fate of the music industry began to turn in the late 90s, so did that of <strong>Homer's</strong>. As of the time of this posting, <strong>Homer's</strong> is down to one location in downtown Omaha. <strong>Rick Galusha </strong>saw it all firsthand.</p> <p>In the interview, we discuss the origins of Homer's and how Rick first became consumed by music. The conversation then veers into a general discussion about the decline of the music industry and of the record store.&nbsp;</p> <p>Somewhere around 2005, <strong>Rick</strong> said goodbye to the record business and moved on to a different career. He still keeps one toe in the musical waters, if you will, by hosting a weekly radio show called <strong>Pacific Street Blues and Americana</strong>. The show airs Sunday mornings from 9am-noon (Central Standard Time) on KIWR, 89.7 The River. The station streams at <a href="http://www.897theriver.com" target="_blank">897theriver.com</a>, and Rick archives the show at <a href="http://kiwrblues.podomatic.com" target="_blank">kiwrblues.podomatic.com</a>.</p> <p>Thanks for listening.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 117: Orenda Fink (Part Two)
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400-435x435+189+11_9947146.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>We return with part two of my interview with <strong>Orenda Fink</strong> for episode #117. If you haven't heard part one - <a href="http://thedarkstuff.podomatic.com/entry/2014-09-08T05_45_23-07_00">episode 116</a> - please go back and listen to that one first. Seriously.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Orenda Fink</strong> is a recording artist who has been making music since the late 90s, beginning with the bands <strong>Little Red Rocket</strong> and <strong>Azure Ray</strong>. After <strong>Azure Ray</strong> went on an indefinite hiatus in 2004, <strong>Fink</strong> embarked on a solo career. As you'll hear in this episode, that solo career has also seen frequent collaborations with other artists, and the formation of two additional bands.</p> <p><strong>Fink's</strong> current release, <em>Blue Dream</em>, is out now on Saddle Creek Records. She is currently on tour in support of the album. Look for tour dates at OrendaFink.com.</p> <p>This episode contains portions of the following songs: "Set the Woods On Fire" by <strong>Art In Manila</strong>, and "Alabama" by <strong>Orenda Fink</strong>.&nbsp;<span>The music underneath my voice in the intro and outro is "Holy Holy" by&nbsp;</span><strong>Orenda Fink</strong><span>.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 116: Orenda Fink (Part One)
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400-0x0+0+0_9910451.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For episode 116, we have part one of my interview with <strong>Orenda Fink</strong>. <strong>Orenda</strong> has just released her third solo album, <em>Blue Dream</em>, on the Saddle Creek Records label, and is about to embark on her first tour in a few years.</p> <p><strong>Orenda's</strong> musical journey began when she met singer/songwriter <strong>Maria Taylor </strong>at a performing arts school in Alabama.&nbsp;The two began writing songs together, and eventually formed the band <strong>Little Red Rocket</strong>. <strong>LRR</strong> was signed by Geffen Records while <strong>Fink</strong> and <strong>Taylor</strong> were barely out of high school! Following some personal tragedy, <strong>LRR</strong> broke up, but <strong>Fink</strong> and <strong>Taylor</strong> stayed together and formed the band <strong>Azure Ray</strong>.</p> <p>It was around this same time that <strong>Orenda</strong> became involved with the Omaha music scene, and <strong>Azure Ray</strong> was signed to Saddle Creek Records, which was home to <strong>Bright Eyes</strong>, <strong>The Faint</strong>, and <strong>Cursive</strong>, at the time. <strong>Orenda</strong> would eventually re-locate to Omaha, and marry <strong>Todd Fink</strong>, who is the lead singer of <strong>The Faint</strong>.</p> <p>When <strong>Azure Ray</strong> went on an extended hiatus in 2004, <strong>Orenda Fink</strong> began her solo career with the 2005 album, <em>The Invisible Ones</em>. Her restless artistic spirit had her continuing to form new bands and collaborations, and she also recorded with <strong>Art In Manila</strong>, <strong>O + S</strong>, and toured as a member of <strong>Rilo Kiley</strong>.</p> <p>In our interview, <strong>Orenda</strong> and I discuss the inspiration behind the new album, <em>Blue Dream</em>, as well as the making of the record and her upcoming tour. We then delve into <strong>Orenda's</strong> entire career, including the reunion of <strong>Azure Ray</strong>. Our discussion was pretty long, so I have decided to make this a two-part episode. Part Two will be episode #117.</p> <p>This episode contains portions of the following songs: "Blue Dream," and "This Is a Part of Something Greater" by <strong>Orenda Fink</strong>, and "New Resolution" by <strong>Azure Ray</strong>. The music underneath my voice in the intro and outro is "Holy Holy" by <strong>Orenda Fink</strong>. All songs&nbsp;<span>&copy;the artist.</span></p> <p>Thanks for listening.

In <a href="http://thedarkstuff.podomatic.com/entry/2014-07-28T05_36_36-07_00">part one</a>, we went through <strong>Dereck's</strong> musical childhood, his earliest bands, and his time in bands <strong>Digital Sex</strong> and <strong>RAF</strong>. Part two picks up exactly right where the first one left off.</p> <p>We discuss <strong>Dereck's</strong> move into ambient and electronic music, the formation of his record label (<a href="http://dvhrecordings.blogspot.com/">DVH Recordings</a>), his introduction to the online Vinyl Community, his collaborations with filmmaker/musician <strong>Nik Fackler</strong>, and all of his current projects.</p> <p>Remember that all of <strong>Dereck's</strong> music can be purchased through his bandcamp page:&nbsp;<a href="http://dereckhiggins.bandcamp.com/">dereckhiggins.bandcamp.com</a>.</p> <p>This episode contains snippets of the following music: "War Statement" by Dereck Higgins, "Drebump" by Dereck Higgins (<span>&copy; Dereck Higgins), "Saw a Blind Dad" by In Dreama (<span>&copy; Team Love).&nbsp;<span>The music embedded under my voice in the intro and outro of the podcast is "Passing Apparition" from&nbsp;</span><strong>Dereck's</strong><span>&nbsp;album&nbsp;</span><em>Sonospheres</em><span>&nbsp;(&copy;2013 Dereck Higgins).</span></span></span></p> <p>Thanks for listening.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 113: Dereck Higgins (Part One)
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400-711x711+0+0_9798149.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For episode #113, I have part one of an interview with Omaha music legend, <strong>Dereck Higgins</strong>. <strong>Higgins</strong> has been making music and playing in bands in the Omaha area since the 1970s. Two of his bands from the 1980s - <strong>Digital Sex</strong> and <strong>RAF</strong> - are considered by many to be the foundation of the modern Omaha indie music scene. Most people know about <strong>Bright Eyes</strong>, <strong>The Faint</strong> and <strong>Cursive</strong>. But the Omaha music scene did not start there, obviously; it began decades earlier, and <strong>Higgins</strong> was right there in the middle of it.</p> <p><strong>Dereck Higgins</strong> is still playing in bands and performing today. He also makes music as a solo artist and releases it through his website:&nbsp;<a href="http://dereckhiggins.bandcamp.com">http://dereckhiggins.bandcamp.com</a>.</p> <p><strong>Dereck</strong> has also achived some notoriety from his popular Youtube channel:&nbsp;<a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/dereckvon">https://www.youtube.com/user/dereckvon</a>. His videos are among the most popular in the "Vinyl Community" - an online group of record collectors and enthusiasts who show the world their collections and offer insights into the artists. Over the years, <strong>Higgins'</strong> videos have gone beyond the normal "VC" subject matter, and often times venture into politics and social commentary. They are a lot like diary entries that he shares with the world at large.</p> <p>Since <strong>Dereck</strong> and I both live in Omaha, I had him come down to the bunker (aka my basement) for the interview. We spoke for over an hour; and because I wanted to include some snippets of music along with the interview, I have decided to make this into a two part episode.</p> <p>In part one, <strong>Dereck</strong> discusses his earliest days as a child fascinated with music, his meeting famous jazz musicians like <strong>John Coltrane</strong> (who used to stop by his childhood home both to "jam" and to "score"), and his early difficulties being a black rock musician in an overwhelmingly white music scene.</p> <p>Part Two will be the next episode - #114.</p> <p>This episode contains snippets of two <strong>Digital Sex</strong> songs - "Dervish Dance" and "When Feelings Change." Both are&nbsp;&copy;<strong>Digital Sex</strong>. The music embedded under my voice in the intro and outro of the podcast is "Passing Apparition" from <strong>Dereck's</strong> album <em>Sonospheres</em> (&copy;2013 Dereck Higgins).</p> <p>Thanks for listening.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 112: Ringo Deathstarr
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9757551.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For episode 112, I bring you my interview with Austin, Texas band <strong>Ringo Deathstarr</strong>. <strong>Ringo&nbsp;</strong><br /><strong>Deathstarr's</strong> music is a loud mixture of shoegaze, Noise pop, indie rock, and psychadelic rock.</p> <p><br />The interview was conducted in the band's dressing room at <strong>The Waiting Room</strong> in Omaha. <strong>RD</strong> was&nbsp;<br />playing in town as the opener for <strong>Peter Murphy</strong>. I spoke to guitarist/singer Elliott Frazier,&nbsp;<br />bassist/singer Alex Gehring, and drummer Daniel Coborn. The trio discusses how the band was&nbsp;<br />formed, the legal consequences of the band's name, and the making of the current album, <em>God's&nbsp;</em><br /><em>Dream</em>. As with many other episodes of the Dark Stuff, the band <strong>Swervedriver</strong> enters the&nbsp;<br />discussion. Turns out, <strong>Adam Franklin</strong> of <strong>Swervedriver</strong> plays on a song on the current <strong>Ringo&nbsp;</strong><br /><strong>Deathstarr</strong> album!</p> <p><br />In between segments of the interview, I put in some snippets of music from <strong>Ringo Deathstarr</strong>.&nbsp;<br />It's just a tease. You need to pick up the records ASAP.</p> <p><br />The band's website: <a href="http://www.ringodeathstarr.org">ringdodeathstarr.org</a>. Find the band on twitter: <a href="http://twitter.com/ringodeathstarr">@RingoDeathstarr</a></p> <p><br />Thanks for listening. Enjoy.</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

This will be the festival's sixth year; and it has grown in both quality and stature with each year. The date is August 16, 2014.</p> <p>This year's line-up includes: <strong>Death Cab For Cutie</strong>, <strong>The Head and The Heart</strong>, <strong>Local Natives</strong>, <strong>The Both</strong> (Aimee Mann and Ted Leo), <strong>Doomtree</strong>, <strong>Radkey</strong>, <strong>The Envy Corps</strong>, <strong>Icky Blossoms</strong>, <strong>Domestica</strong>, <strong>Twinsmith</strong>, <strong>Matt Whipkey</strong>, and <strong>M34N STR33T</strong>.</p> <p><strong>MAHA</strong> is a unique festival in that it is a non-profit operation. The festival is run entirely by volunteers, and is supported with donations from local sponsors. In addition to the two music stages, there are also tents that feature local artists, poets, and comedians.&nbsp;</p> <p>Bill and I talk about the origins of the festival, its goals for the future, and how much actual work goes into pulling off one of these things.</p> <p>For more information on the festival and getting tickets, go to mahamusicfestival.com</p> <p>Thanks for listening.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 110: Replacements Roundtable
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9682003.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p style="text-align: justify;">For episode 110, I bring you what I am now calling <em>"The Replacements Roundtable."</em> I had an idea that I wanted to explore which centered around the reunion of <strong>The Replacements</strong>. The legendary band played its first shows in 22+ years in the Summer of 2013, and they are still playing together today. To many people, <strong>The Replacements</strong> are more than just a band, and liking them is as much a statement about them, personally, as it is about their musical taste. Being able to debate - in an articulate and inspired way - about which LP is better, <em>Tim</em> or <em>Let It Be</em>, <em>Sorry Ma</em> or <em>Hootenanny</em>, or whatever records you want to compare, is just as essential as owning those albums. Real <strong>Replacements</strong> fans are serious.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For this "roundtable," I gathered up some friends - all of whom saw at least one reunion show - ordered up some drinks, and turned on the recorder. Besides me (<a href="http://twitter.com/davesplash" target="_blank">@davesplash</a>), the other voices you'll hear belong to: <strong>Marq Manner </strong>(<a href="http://twitter.com/marqmanner" target="_blank">@marqmanner</a>), <strong>Chip Duden</strong> (<a href="http://twitter.com/chipduden" target="_blank">@chipduden</a>), and <strong>Joel Henriksen</strong> (<a href="http://twitter.com/joelhenriksen" target="_blank">@joelhenriksen</a>). In between segments of the interview, I spliced in some music and stage banter from some of the reunion shows in '13 and '14.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Thanks for listening.

The Dark Stuff Podcast 109: Yo La Tengo
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9659344.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For episode 109, I am calling an audible. Originally, this was supposed to be a discussion on <strong>The Replacements</strong> reunion. However, on the scheduled recording night, Omaha was subjected to flash flooding, extreme storms, and tornadoes. So, obviously, we had to reschedule. In its place, I have found an interview with <strong>Ira Kaplan</strong> from indie legends, <strong>Yo La Tengo</strong>.</p> <p>This short interview was conducted live, on-air, during my radio show, New Day Rising. It was recorded Sunday, October 15, 2006, a week before <strong>Yo La Tengo's</strong> first ever Omaha concert. The interview had taken me by surprise, as I thought it had been cancelled. I didn't even bring my questions! I did the interview live on-air despite there being a strong prohibition against doing so at my station.</p> <p>At the time, Yo La Tengo was promoting its album, <em>I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass</em>. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.</p> <p>Sorry for the confusion about the episodes. All should be back to normal next week.</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

The Dark Stuff Podcast 108: Drakes Hotel
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9636927.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>The Dark Stuff Podcast #108</strong> features an interview with and music by Omaha duo, <strong>Drakes Hotel</strong>. <strong>Drakes Hotel</strong> is Amy Drake and Chris Y, and together, they have recorded four albums and an EP. The band's music has drawn comparisons to artists like Cocteau Twins, Mazzy Star, The Raveonettes, and Psychadelic Furs. Chris and Amy are married and have been making music together for over a decade. After stints in Seattle and Portland, the duo made Omaha home.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">I discovered <strong>Drakes Hotel</strong> by accident -- seeing them open for Crocodiles -- and have been a fan ever since. Chris and Amy came down to the bunker for an interview, and I learned an awful lot about this talented twosome. For example, the band has had its music appear in TV shows such as <em>Being Human</em> and <em>Lost Girl</em> on the SyFy Network. You may already know the music without realizing it!</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The following songs were used with permission: "Leave It Dark" "Here's to the Days" "Broadcast to the Addicted" and "From Over". All songs&nbsp;&copy;DH Music. The music can be purchased through CD Baby:&nbsp;http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/DrakesHotel1.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Thanks for listening.

<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9614084.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>The Dark Stuff Podcast #107</strong> features music and an interview with a brilliant, new band called <strong>See Through Dresses</strong>. <strong>STD</strong> are a new band from Omaha that has just released its debut, full length album, and is about to embark on its first national tour. The band's music has drawn comparisons to groups like <strong>Joy Division</strong>, <strong>The Cure</strong>, <strong>Lush</strong>, <strong>My Bloody Valentine</strong>, and many other greats from the late 80s/early 90s.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">I sat down with band members <strong>Sara Bertuldo</strong> and <strong>Matt Carroll</strong> to discuss how the band formed, the making of the album, and the band's goals for the future. Both <strong>Bertuldo</strong> and <strong>Carroll</strong> have played in bands in Omaha for years, and both feel that <strong>See Through Dresses</strong> is the band that best represents what they have been trying to achieve for many years.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In addition to working in their own bands, both <strong>Sara</strong> and <strong>Matt</strong> have done touring stints with other bands, with the most notable example being <strong>Sara's</strong> time as the bass player for <strong>Tim Kasher's</strong> (Cursive, The Good Life) solo band.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The following songs were used with permission: "When Summer Ends" "Glass" "Happy" and "Johnny." All music&nbsp;<strong>&copy;See Through Dresses</strong>, and all songs appear on the band's self-titled debut LP. The album can be purchased from the band's Bandcamp page:&nbsp;<a href="http://seethroughdresses.bandcamp.com/" target="_blank">seethroughdresses.bandcamp.com</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Thanks for listening.

Before the show, I sat down with Annie to discuss the state of <strong>St. Vincent</strong>.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">We discussed a number of things including her recent change in record label, the current state of the music business, whether or not it's okay to be a "rock star," her collaboration with <strong>David Byrne</strong> of <strong>Talking Heads</strong>, her "emotional" meeting with <strong>Eddie Vedder</strong>, and that if she could be any other person on earth, it would be <strong>Pat Smear</strong> (Nirvana, The Germs).&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Annie Clark</strong> became <strong>St. Vincent</strong> in 2007 with the release of her debut LP, <em>Marry Me</em>. Since then, she has released four other albums and toured around the world repeatedly. With the release of her newest, self-titled album, <strong>St. Vincent</strong> is positioned to conquer the mainstream. She recently performed at the <strong>Rock and Roll Hall of Fame</strong> induction ceremony fronting <strong>Nirvana</strong>, and she just appeared as the musical guest on the season finale of <em>Saturday Night Live</em>.&nbsp;</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

The Dark Stuff Podcast 105: Ace Frehley
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9567961.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p><strong>The Dark Stuff Podcast #105</strong> is a special one, folks. This episode features my interview with the legendary guitarist and founding member of <strong>KISS</strong>, <strong>Ace Frehley</strong>! <strong>Ace</strong> helped form <strong>KISS</strong> in 1973 and remained in the band until 1982, when he embarked on a solo career. In 1996, he re-joined <strong>KISS</strong> for a reunion tour, and remained in the band until 2002. <strong>Ace Frehley</strong>, along with the three other original members of <strong>KISS</strong>, were recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.</p> <p>I conducted this interview with <strong>Ace</strong> during the run-up to the release of his solo album, <em>Anomaly</em>, in 2009. This was his first solo release in 20 years, and the expectations were high. He and his band were about to begin an international tour in support of the album, and that tour began in Council Bluffs, IA, which is a mere 10 minutes from midtown Omaha.&nbsp;</p> <p>I have been a lifelong <strong>KISS</strong> fan, and this was, literally, a dream come true for me. I hope you enjoy the episode. This interview has never been aired anywhere. It is 100% exclusive to this podcast.</p> <p>I want to point out that in the time since the interview, <strong>Ace</strong> has completed a new album. It is called <em>Space Invader</em>, and will be released on June 24, 2014.</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9522657.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p><strong>Dark Stuff Podcast #103</strong> features an interview with <strong>Josh Haden</strong>, best known for his work in the fantastic indie band, <strong><a href="http://www.spaintheband.com">Spain</a></strong>. Haden's career began as a teenager when he performed in the band <strong>Trecherous Jaywalkers</strong>, who recorded for <strong>SST Records</strong> in the 1980s. After that band's dissolution, <strong>Haden</strong> decided to take his music in another direction.&nbsp;</p> <p>That other direction became the band <strong>Spain</strong>. <strong>Spain's</strong> stellar debut album, <em>The Blue Moods of Spain</em>, was released in 1995 to much critical acclaim. The album combined elements of jazz, pop, and indie rock into a magical and unique sound. One of the album's songs, "Spiritual" was later recorded by <strong>Johnny Cash</strong>.</p> <p>After a few follow-up albums, <strong>Spain </strong>went on hiatus in the early 2000s, and <strong>Haden</strong> ended up going solo. In addition to his solo career, he also collaborated with <strong>Dan the Automator</strong>, <strong>Handsome Boy Modeling School</strong>, <strong>Sean Lennon</strong>, and the <strong>Blue Man Group</strong>, among others.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Spain</strong> later re-formed has released a total of seven albums (including compilations). The band's newest is called, <em>Sargent Place</em>.</p> <p>This interview was conducted sometime in 2008, and was then lost to the ages due to a computer crash. I recently recovered the file, and am presenting part one of the interview here. Part Two will follow next week.</p> <p>Josh Haden is the son of jazz musician, <strong>Charlie Haden</strong>, and brother to <strong>Petra Haden</strong> (that dog, The Decemberists), <strong>Rachel Haden</strong> (that dog, The Rentals), and <strong>Tanya Haden</strong>.</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

The Dark Stuff Podcast 102: Supersuckers
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9509666.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>Dark Stuff Podcast 102 features my interview with <strong>Eddie Spaghetti</strong> from <strong>The Supersuckers</strong>. <strong>The Supersuckers</strong> are a hard rocking, hard living, punk/country/garage/metal/grunge band from Seattle, Washington. They are the self-proclaimed "Greatest Rock n Roll Band in the World."</p> <p>The band formed in 1988 in Tucson, AZ, but quickly re-located to Seattle to be a part of the burgeoning "Seattle scene." After one album on Empty Records, the group signed to Sub Pop and became one of the label's most successful bands. Grunge has come and gone, but the <strong>Supersuckers</strong> are still here!</p> <p>I conducted this interview in 2008 with singer/bassist <strong>Eddie Spaghetti</strong>, but assumed the file was gone after a computer crash, so I never was able to use it. I recently salvaged the interview and am bringing it to you here, for the first time ever. At the time, <strong>Supersuckers</strong> were celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band, and touring in support of their album, <em>Get It Together</em>. At the time of this posting, the Supersuckers are on the verge of releasing their 16th album, <em>Get The Hell</em>. Besides that, little has changed.</p> <p>Enjoy.</p> <p>&copy;2014 The Dark Stuff Podcast</p>

The Dark Stuff Podcast 101: Overwhelming Colorfast
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9498608.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>The Dark Stuff #101</strong> is dedicated to the short-lived Bay Area rock band <strong>Overwhelming Colorfast</strong>. The band formed in 1990 in Antioch, CA and was frequently compared to&nbsp;<strong>H&uuml;sker</strong><span><strong>&nbsp;D&uuml;</strong> and <strong>Buzzcocks</strong>. Six months after its first performance, the band was signed to an offshoot of Sony Records and in the studio with celebrated producer <strong>Butch Vig</strong> (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Against Me!). <strong>Colorfast</strong> toured the US numerous times and shared stages with artists like <strong>Ramones</strong> and <strong>Social Distortion</strong>, as well as headlining club tours. Despite a valiant effort, commercial success eluded the band.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For this podcast, I interviewed band leader <strong>Bob Reed </strong>(gtr/vox),&nbsp;who tells the story of the group from its inception to its premature demise.</p> <p><strong>PLEASE NOTE</strong>: This podcast was originally published in 2008. That version was removed a while back. This is a re-post of that show without the music. Since that 2008 interview, <strong>Overwhelming Colorfast's</strong> first two albums have been added to itunes, thus making them available for the first time since their initial release in the early 90s. As of this posting, a label called <strong>Texas Jesus Records</strong> (https://www.facebook.com/TexasJesusRecords) is planning to release a single of previously unreleased Colorfast music.</p> <p>Visit my website:&nbsp;http://www.thedarkstuff.com/</p>

The Dark Stuff Podcast 100: Madder Rose
<img src="http://assets.podomatic.net/ts/52/0b/ee/thedarkstuff/1400x1400_9486907.jpg" alt="itunes pic" /><br /><p>For this episode, the spotlight is on a great 90s band from New York called <strong>Madder Rose</strong>.The band existed from roughly 1992-1999. Based on its debut album, <em>Bring It Down</em>, <strong>Madder Rose</strong> was heralded as the "next Velvet Underground" in the British press. I interviewed former <strong>Madder Rose</strong> drummer, Johnny Kick for the podcast, and he tells the story of the band's fast rise and slow decline. <strong>Madder Rose</strong> is one of the best unsung bands of the 90s, and they deserve more accolades and posthumous discovery than they are getting.</p> <p>This is a re-posting of what was episode 24 of the original <strong>Dark Stuff Podcast</strong>. It was published originally in April 2008. This "new" version has removed any songs that were used originally, so there will be no copyright issues. Sorry about that.</p>
