Welcome back to Left of the Dial, playing deep cuts from the classic age of vinyl and beyond! This week, we begin with a trio of head-turning cover songs (The Animals covering Bob Dylan, Eddie Hazel’s guitar-driven reinvention of an all-time classic from The Mamas and The Papas, and Voivod‘s curious rendering of an early Pink Floyd cut that would make Syd Barrett proud) that […]
Moar Metals. What more can I say. Gwar, Blotted Science, Gormathon, Arnocorps, damn that is some good metal.
Hits from the softer side of metal, Ratt, Cinderella, UFO… who am I kidding we are playing a mix of melodious and heavy every show. Tracks that are the takeaway for me: “Screen Queen” by Black Moth “Morning Sun” by Savatage And that hweird, whacky, and hwild “Heinous” by Hatebean.
Skating Polly crushed the Doug Fir Lounge Thursday night with The Go! Team (3/29/18). Starting their set with “Alabama Movies”, a driving and angst filled track from Fuzz Steilacoom, the mood of the show was kicked into high gear. The three piece from Oklahoma City rocked out many tunes from their back catalog and a […]
Not a single song from this decade. Playing the old metals but good metals with a healthy dose of thrash and British invasion metal. We make the determination that BOC is indeed rockin’ enough to be considered metal… on some of their tracks at least.
Lost If you’re curious and just listening to posts randomly, I mention everything you need to know about this 2nd hour of the episode streamcast last June 18th on the first hour posting. Back to that speech. Lost During the Great Forgetting it came to be understood among the people of our culture that life […]
Moar metals! Featuring some great bassists and bass driven tracks. Another fun hour of metal tunes that got a little thrashy at the end, but hey thrashy is good, right? Finishing with Holy Wars and … The Metal Lady Boy? Yeah that song could have gone a lot of ways and I’m kinda impressed with […]
(filling in for vickie while she rocks out down in north carolina!) dj jules brings the SICK RIFFS for two whole hours of ELECTRIFYING and EAR-BLEEDING GUITAR MUSIC. featuring some local PORTLAND BANDS (young hunter, blesst chest, dead moon) as well as some friends from TUCSON ARIZON, la cerca: la cerca also some CLASSIC PUNK, […]
Another Monday and more metal for breakfast. Played the first triplet of songs linked by a theme (Egypt) based upon a recent trip to Vegas with family. A marriage was made, money was lost, and every night was ended in a giant pyramid. Orson Welles made an appearance on the show from beyond the grave […]
PROOF!! The second hour, a pair of tracks from each of the years 1992 to 1994. Trust me I was astonished as you were when I realized how many amazing projects dropped in the early 90s, of course perhaps it’s simply a problem with my historical perspective. Crazy times, back then, crazy times. For me […]
