The Monkees: HEAD

Monkees-in-Head-the-monkees-19942113-500-386.png

Head, Head, Head... so repeats the voice, on the film we cover this week, The Monkees surrealist comedy HEAD. A film by a band, that most considered a joke, and had, a rather silly television series, would be considered somewhat of a strain to get through right? but is it? Did we like it? Who did? Who didn't? You will just need to listen on and find out, ya dig?

See ya next week

Wacko

The Lawnmower killers' back and I'm gonna get him!! Hey gang, we're back, finally, with a new episode, only Hunter and John are not this week, so to help Stu out on this one, his brother Jules returns, to discuss a film they have lived with since 1983 - WACKO.

Never heard of it? well, it does have a cult following, but for those of you unfamiliar with it, sit back, and let Stu and Jules wax lyrical on it.

They also get into discussion on THAT Roadshow catalogue from 1983, and the impact it had on them. Confused yet? It will all make sense, listen on and find out.

Hunter and John will be back next episode, in the meantime, get your ears filled with everything Wacko

See ya next week

P.S - Just two side notes, on the episode, Stu mentions the film as being from 1981, well, this film has a varied release history. IMDB says 1982, however filmmaker Greydon Clark has it on his website as 1983. So who really knows? We gotta go with Greydon on this one.

Also, there is talk throughout of Stu trying to find a soundtrack to this film for the last near on 20 years. At the point of time we recorded this, it was still unfound... that is until later that night after Jules and I had parted company, stone me, if Stu found it on a blog out on the net. You can download it HERE and get yourself some Avalon goodness.

Tex and the Lord of the Deep

It's two spaghetti westerns in a row, as John and Hunter scrutinize Duccio Tessari's adaptation of the Italian comic book character, Tex Willer. This one has a lot going for it, a great director, a great star with the amazing Guiliano Gemma, and a genre we love. How could they possibly screw this up? Well, listen and find out.

Massacre Time

Rock Month is over, so it's back to movies! John and Hunter sit down with Eric Zaldivar to discuss Lucio Fulci's spaghetti western "Massacre Time" (aka "The Brute and The Beast"), starring Franco Nero. There are many diversions along the way, as well as revelations, including a possible missing link between the spaghetti western and the Hong Kong heroic bloodshed movies of John Woo. Don't miss it!

Rock Month: Devin Townsend

devin.jpeg

 

Greetings friends, we are back this week, in search of the perfect cup of coffee, and also week 3 of Rock Month. This time, it's Hunter's pick, and he has gone for Canadian artist, and man of many varied styles - Devin Townsend.

This may be the most interesting Rock Month episode ever, as Townsends music can be polarizing, and his sound, as you will find out, isn't for everybody.

Listen on, and enjoy. We'll be back for the final week of Rock Month of 2018 next week.

Rock Month: Silverhead

silverhead-resize-1.jpg

 

Here we are friends, back with week 2 of Rock Month, and what would usually be Hunter's pick (that will be next week) we are actually going with John's this time around. So what obscurity has he pulled out for this year? A band I dare say you (along with Hunter and Stu) have never heard of - Silverhead.

With a discography only spanning two albums (hence the shorter than usual running time for a Rock Month episode) we look at the the band, and it's frontman Michael Des Barres.

So pop on your spandex, grab the blush and lipstick, and listen on with us.

See ya next week.

Rock Month: The Macc Lads

macc_lads.jpeg

 

Eh Up! Ok gang, well it is that time of the year, Rock Month is here!! To start off the month, we head up to the North of England, to Macclesfield to be precise, and focus on (what some folks call) the most offensive band ever to come out of Great Britain - The Macc Lads.

Listen on and hear Hunter and John's reactions, to the (so called) obnoxious (but cleverly written) lyrics and punk rock greatness, while Stu (who chose them for RM) sees them in a different light. Anyway, it is one hell of a way to kick the month off, we'll be back next week with John's pick. 

Enjoy ya poofs.

Dunkirk

mmc_dunkirk_art.jpg

 

Hey friends, the gangs all here. Hunter returns to the show after a few weeks off getting married and stuff. Anyway this time around, we go the less common route for the MMC, and look at a newer film.

This week we talk the latest Christopher Nolan film DUNKIRK. Of course, it wouldn't be an MMC episode without various rants scattered throughout (Star Wars, Morrissey and a few other things).

Anyway, Rock Month is upon us soon, next weeks episode will be a Rock Month appetizer.

Warning: This episode has a few naughty words in it, so it is NSFW

See ya next week

MMC Mystery Bag

mysterybagmmc.jpg

Hey friends back with a new episode.. that is kinda old. You see, Stu and John recorded this one a few weeks ago, and it was meant to be out around the same time of its recording, HOWEVER the EAR/ONS story broke and this got pushed aside for that episode.

Anyway there are some references in there to Hunter's wedding that are now long out of date, but nevermind, you understand why now.

So, what does this episode contain? Well it's a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, with some other things sprinkled over it, so.... you are just gonna have to listen and find out.

See ya next week.

EAR/ONS III - UNMASKED

Ear_Ons_III.png

 

GOT HIM !!!!!

Hey gang, this week, we return to the world of EAR/ONS with some incredible news. EAR/ONS himself has been caught!!! In what was breaking develpoments of the last 24 hours, from the point of time of our recording, EAR/ONS was turned in by his own daughter of all people, and arrested by Police awaiting trial for multiple counts of murder.

We are joined by our friend Gian Quasar, who has spent years tracking down EAR/ONS, so to say that today is a day that is utterly surreal, would be putting it mildly.

Anyway, listen in.

See ya next week.

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

 download_5_.jpeg

 

John and Hunter made a terrible mistake this week. We attempted to get into author Joan Didion through her nephew Griffin Dunne's documentary on her, Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold. Yes, the same Griffin Dunne who was in An American Werewolf in London. The result is a lot of boomer crap we hate. We apologize ahead of time.

The Decline of Western Civilization Part. 2

Odin.jpg

 

Hey friends, so as promised, here is our review of The Decline of Western Civilization Part. 2. This one stinks of hedonism, and is a great window, into the dying horse, that was the hair metal scene in L.A in 1989. Hardly any of the bands here 'made it', and rightly so, some are ok but unmemorable, some are memorable for the fact they are plain awful.

So grab your hairspray, get  inthe spa, pop open some champagne and grab the nearest Metal chicks and listen on with us. Odin commands it!!!!

The Decline of Western Civilization Part. 1

mmc_decline.jpg

 

Ok friends, this week, actually the next two weeks, we will be looking at the legendary Penelope Spheeris documentaries - The Decline of Western Civilization.

This week it is Part 1 from 1981, which focuses on the West Coast Punk scene, with performances by The Germs, Fear, X, Circle Jerks and a few others. The documentary is THE seminal Punk documentary, and one of the most influential of all time. I don't think it is too difiicult to guess if we liked it or not... or is it as easy as that?

Anyway, sit down with us, and we hope enjoy the Decline of Western Civilization

See ya next week with Part 2

David Lynch: The Art Life

This week, John and Hunter dive into the new documentary on David Lynch, The Art Life. Rather than focusing on his film career, the movie looks at his early life in the suburbs and as a young artist. We compare the movie favorably to other, lesser David Lynch documentaries, as well as discuss our impressions of Lynch today. 

The Art Life is available from Criterion, as well as Amazon
