Verse Chaos Verse :: S3E7 :: Bill Corbett
Episode 28: In this, our Season 3 Finale, we spoke to Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater and RiffTrax about the art of movie riffing, the first time he operated Crow, and some of the factors in the success of RiffTrax Fathom Live events. We then revisit Marianne's childhood romance story before announcing our winner of the Season 3 Bastards In Bands contest. Andrew then makes the gang play a game called "Build A Band." We end the show by announcing the winner of our facebook "What's Crow's Favorite Replacements Song?" contest. Liner Notes: "Trace" refers to Trace Beaulieu, who played Dr. Clayton Forrester on MST3K and was the original Crow T. Robot. The "dancing guy" from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones is Ben Carr. The "screaming Icelandic" from The Sugarcubes was Einar Örn Benediktsson-Don't ask us how to pronounce it. Notable Fouls: 1. Doug sounds like a nervous and starstruck bitch in this episode. That's because he absolutely is. Mind you, he's interviewed several rock legends, heroes and even members of The Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. Apparently, all it takes is once clever television writer/comedian who once voiced a robot puppet to turn Doug into Marsha Brady; Bill Corbett would be Davey Jones in that analogy. Next season, Kevin is hosting. 2.Klaus Nomi visit http://www.speakercreatures.com for more liner notes

Verse Chaos Verse :: S3E6 :: Curtis Eller
Featuring special guest: Curtis Eller! Listen to the episode here: [powerpress] Episode 27: In this "loosie goosie" chapter of our assorted chronology, we speak to the incredible Curtis Eller. In the absence of Andrew, the rest of the gang choose to relax and talk about Marianne's first romance and her prolific career as a successful drug mule. Notable Fouls: 1. Everything discussed that does not involve the music of Curtis Eller. 2. We would like to apologize to every Italian on earth for the impressions. 3. Doug and Kevin are record collectors who also listen to CDs. They are not purists, luddites, or Amish. They only sound that way when they're arguing with Andrew. Mostly Doug. 4. Andrew's Bengals thing. Visit http://www.speakercreatures.com

Verse Chaos Verse: The Freakin' Kiss Episode.
Warning: Kiss is being discussed. In this episode, the gang talk about Kiss. It's a very intellectual conversation, so you might want to read a little, or consult your Mensa friends. Notables: 1. “Kissing Time” was mentioned as a weak point on the first album. “Love Theme From Kiss” was way lamer.2. Eddie Kramer, the producer of Ace Frehley's solo album was not only Jimi Hendrix's engineer but he's worked with all of the greats including Led Zeppelin, The Stones, and David Bowie. Check out his Wikipedia page, it'll make you feel shitty about your life. 3. The Menudo song, “Dame Un Beso.” We're sorry about that. 4. Our producer, Marianne “Hard Luck Woman” Carlina chose a pretty crappy Kiss song to end the episode with. Keep listening. The situation is quickly fixed. 5. On Psycho Circus, Ace Frehley actually plays lead guitar on "Into the Void", "You Wanted the Best" and "In Your Face." All other leads were played by Tommy Thayer. Peter Criss, however, only plays drums on “Into The Void.” The rest of the drums were played by some other shmuck. 6. The Kiss coffin.

Verse Chaos Verse :: S3E4 :: Diarrhea Planet
Episode 25: In this week's episode of our Verse Chaos Verse podcast, we caught up with Emmett Miller of the Nashville shred-rock band, Diarrhea Planet moments after their sound check. He talks to us about their new album, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. Marianne announces the winner of the second round of our Bastards In Bands contest. Find out why Doug's entry, Death Pickle, was tossed out of the contest. Andrew and Doug then talk about their Dragon Con weekend. Notable Fouls: 1. Schindler's List should never be remade in the style of The Wiz. 2. “Bronies.” 3. Death Pickle do not sound like a poor man's Sleigh Bells. 3. Any deviant behavior mentioned with regards to Dragon Con is alleged for the novel purposes of this podcast and should not be taken as factual accounts. The sample “Another of my favorites is Diarrhea Planet from Nashville Tennessee” is Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus. It was taken from Episode 6 of our podcast.

Verse Chaos Verse :: S3E3 :: XNY
Episode 24: We are so full of show! We talk to Brooklyn band XNY about their new album, Orange as well as how creepily stalking people can have a happy ending! Marianne gives us the results of round one of our Bastards In Bands Contest. We then talk about Tribute Bands. Oh! And Doug makes the gang battle it out in a mean spirited “Whose Not Indie” game he calls Animal Farm, for the right to pick the soundtrack of our upcoming KISS EPISODE! Notable Fouls: 1. Andrew doesn't 'rage' once in this episode. He wasn't told not to rage. He just didn't. 2. There is no correlation between Andrew, Jacob Schreiber, and John Hinckley Junior. 3. Doug doesn't actually have a “sweet” voice. It was clearly a bad phone connection. Nor does he get “blushy.” 4. The future comments by “indie” kids after hearing the Animal Farm segment. 5. Paula Abdul. 6. Tori Amos We would love to thank XNY for coming on and we admire them for spitting on hipsters and keeping them out of their neighborhood. You both deserve a statue.

Verse Chaos Verse :: S3E1 :: Beach
Episode 22: On our Season 3 Premiere, we talk to Karen Mould (Aka Beach, Aka Bitch, Aka Capital B) about locking herself away in a cabin to record, being on a bill with Debra Gibson, and the making of her new album In Us We Trust. We also talk about the pros and cons of Kickstarter campaigns. Toward the end of the show, we talk a little about the upcoming Bastards In Bands contest. If you write and record music with a band or by yourself hit this link and get involved! Notable Fouls: 1. Bringing up the Dimebag Darryl shooting with regards to Kickstarter contributors. Just so we're clear, our staff tends to frown on anyone who would shoot another human who sings or plays a musical instrument. It's just not cool. 2. Just a note of congratulations to our boy Kevin for getting through an episode without saying a single foul thing. 3. Our producer missing this episode. visit: http://www.speakercreatures.com

Verse Chaos Verse :: S2E9 :: Steve Hunter
Episode 20: This week, Kevin and Doug obnoxiously celebrate The Replacements reunion, while Andrew and Maire patiently wait to begin the broadcast. Doug then talks to legendary guitarist Steve Hunter about recording the Berlin album with Lou Reed, composing the seminal intro to the Rock and Roll Animal version of "Sweet Jane," playing with Alice Cooper, Joe Satriani, and Johnny Depp, recording the soundtrack for the Bette Midler film The Rose, as well as what to expect from his new album, Manhattan Blues Project. The rest of the episode is pretty much spent making fun of Marianne's Billy Idol concert experience. Notable Fouls: 1. If a touring band has a breakdown in Europe, Harry Potter doesn't actually show up to help out. 2. Billy Idol actually has more than four songs. 3. And lastly, it's a little premature to call these tentative dates Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson are doing a "Replacements Reunion." Time will tell.

A Conversation WIth Janet Conner : Mother Of A Political Prisoner
Janet Conner is an author and Radio Talk Show Host. Her son is being held in federal prison for not cooperating in a Grand Jury investigation. He has not been charged with a crime. Copy by The Support Team Of Jerry Resists: Gerald “Jerry” Koch, a New York City anarchist and legal activist, has been subpoenaed for the second time to a federal grand jury investigating the same event. He was found in contempt of court on May 21, 2013, and is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, NY. In 2009, Jerry was subpoenaed for the first time and refused to testify. Today, as in 2009, the grand jury is being used to conduct a witch hunt against anarchists and political radicals. In refusing to testify, Jerry risks being held in contempt of court and faces incarceration in a federal prison for the duration of the grand jury, which could be up to 18 months. Under the guise of an exploratory legal investigation, the grand jury is a secretive tool of repression that aims to intimidate and punish those who refuse to collaborate with the State. There is a long history of grand juries being used whenever the State focuses on a new “enemy”: they were used in the 1950s during the “Red Scare,” in the 1960s against the Black Panthers, and more recently against environmental and animal rights groups in what became known as the “Green Scare.” This grand jury, like the ongoing targeting of anarchists in the Pacific Northwest, is part of a new, escalating wave of repression against anarchists nationwide, who are being persecuted specifically for their political beliefs and practices. It is no coincidence that the government would try to silence Jerry, as he has been an effective and tireless legal advocate for anarchists, Occupy Wall Street protesters, and others expressing political dissent. Jerry was the person everyone could count on to be waiting for them outside of jail, to support them in the courtroom, and to help with their legal defense. Although Jerry knew he would be in the crosshairs of the State for providing much needed legal support to hundreds of political activists, no one expected that the state would retaliate with a second subpoena. It is clear that the State’s goal is not just to pressure Jerry into informing on the radical community, but to take away someone who is an integral pa

Verse Chaos Verse :: S2E4 :: Carnivores
In this episode, we interview Philip and Caitlin from the Atlanta band Carnivores! Episode XV: Kevin gets abused by the gang, before and after we speak to one of his favorite bands (and rock and roll crushes) Carnivores. Later, Andrew gets angry at the self-righteous Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes. We then talk about bands hocking their songs in TV commercials. Notable fouls: The audio in The Carnivores interview is dodgy. We're not sure why it turned out that way but in the interest of saving face we'll blame the band. Also, in case you couldn't hear it, the get away driver in our bank heist scenario was Ross. http://www.speakercreatures.com

He also talks about how much Fugazi rules and why his band is not "math rock." The gang then chimes in on the recent Amanda Palmer follies. Notable fouls: 1. There is actually one song on the new Tera Melos album that exceeds the five minute mark. The track is called "Slimed." It clocks in at 5:28. 2. Amanda Palmer's poetry. http://www.speakercreatures.com

Episode 1: The gang talks about some of their first jobs, some characters who showed up at last month’s Leonard Cohen concert, “the Peter Murphy incident”, and the possibility that Kevin was exploited as a child. *Jessie Clavin photo by Marianne Carlina Notable Fouls: 1. Iowa and Indiana are not the same thing. 2. Not all white people with dreadlocks ask for handouts or have dirty fee

Verse Chaos Verse:: S1Finale:: Mike Watt
Episode XI: In this, the finale of season 1 of our podcast, Doug talks to Mike Watt on the cusp of his 10 year anniversary of playing with Iggy Pop and the Stooges. Watt talks about joining the band, inducting Madonna in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, making music with ex-wife, Kira (Black Flag), fIREHOSE, D. Boon and The Minutemen, touring with Perry Farrell, the history of “punk”, and what to expect from Ready To Die, the new album by Iggy Pop and The Stooges! Notable Fouls: 1. Kevin doesn’t actually use rock journalism as a means to pick up girls in bands. 2. That whole “A-Town Down” thing…sorry. 3. Johanna: Shortly after The Stooges disbanded, Iggy Pop recorded his vocals for the album, Kill City while being treated in mental hospitals for his heroin addiction. The track was originally recorded in 1975 and was intended to only be a demo. When no label would go near it, the project was shelved. In 1977, following the success of Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life LP, Williamson received an advance from Bomp! records to finish Kill City. James Williamson produced the record. It featured former Stooges members and guest musicians. Kill City was released shortly after on green vinyl. 4. The “Marky Mark movie” Doug mentioned was called Rock Star, not “Rock Band”-that’s a video game. In case you missed it: Somewhere during the interview’s melee of free flowing thought, it was mentioned that Mike Watt’s ex-wife Kira Roessler (Former bassist of Black Flag) won two Emmy Awards for ADR/Dialogue. The first Emmy was for the HBO mini-series about John Adams. The second Emmy was for her work on Game Of Thrones.

Verse Chaos Verse ::S1E10:: The Metallica Problem
Warning: Metallica is discussed here. Listen to the episode here: [powerpress] Is Metallica still relevant? Was their therapy movie a comedy? Should they just stop? That's F'n Metal Guy writer, Andrew Vannoy joins the gang for a conversation about Metallica. Notable fouls: 1. Post 'Justice' Metallica. 2. How much Kevin and Doug actually know about Metallica 3. How enjoyable it really is watching Dave Mustaine cry. If you're ever up late and want to fall asleep watching the most unintentionally hilarious movie ever check out Some Kind Of Monster here.

Verse Chaos Verse:: S1E9:: A Rocket To The Moon
In this episode, Doug talks to A Rocket To The Moon’s Justin Richards about the economy of music, touring with Hanson and the making of A Rocket To The Moon’s new album, Wild and Free. The gang then talk about the new David Bowie album, The Next Day. The episode then quickly degenerates from there. Notable Fouls: 1. The Eric Carmen quote “Ladies and Gentlemen, Pop is not a dirty word.” is from the 1988 Arista Records collection, The Best Of Eric Carmen. 2. The episode spirals out of control almost immediately after Iman’s name is mentioned. 3. Boba Fett is not actually appearing on our next episode. Maybe next season.

Our photographer Keith and his fiance' Noelle are in fact perfect and in no way actually sickening. 2. Whitesnake were never good. 3. Poaching and Finning are no laughing matter. If you catch your friends doing it, punch them in the face. 4. The Iggy Pop album, American Caesar was released in 1993. We want to thank Lisa Germano for joining us!

The gang also talk about some of the shows they've covered, as well as give a brief and vile description of a track from the new Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds album. Notable fouls: 1. "Polite" Nick Cave can still be pretty damn gorgeous. (See:The Boatman's Call/No More Shall We Part) 2. It was perfectly okay for Doug to say Cerebral Palsy. Why he chose to just say C.P is beyond us. 3. To the "toothbrush guy" at the Ty Segal gig, I hope you learned something today. We want to thank Patrick Stickles for coming on the show. It was great to get to speak with him. Titus Andronicus Forever! visit http://www.speakercreatures.com

Doug interviews novelist/director Gorman Bechard about The Replacements, the meaning of the word "indie", and whimpy bands that make them both sick. Episode V: Sarah called in sick so Doug is trapped alone in the studio with Marianne, The ADD Police. Doug writes an awful Goth song for Sarah, before talking about Marianne's run in with stagedivers at the Ty Segall show. Notable fouls: Good luck with that.

Verse Chaos Verse::S1E4::Gang Related
By popular demand, there are no guests or interviews in this episode. In this, what we call a “Gang-Related Episode,” we take a peep at the new debut album by Fidlar. We also talk about “the banjo guy” our new photographer brought home to our doorstep. The girls tease Doug about looking forward to the new Black Sabbath album, and the rest is really kind of a blur, to be honest.
