Original show notes from this episode:

Once again, Chrome Skin Jesus has fallen down on the job (figuratively, not literally, duh) and turned over the mic to one of his closest friends and fellow 16volt ‘bored buddy,’ Diabeticus. As all guests hosts that take over the show do, he has taken a few liberties to give his own signature spin on the world of industrial rock.  You will find interesting insight, bands you may have never considered industrial rock (but strangely work within the framework of the genre), a stellar club oriented extended set and PLENTY OF 16VOLT.

So here is what gets spun on this weeks episode of Razor Blade Dance Floor:

  • Einstürzende Neubauten – “Zuckendes Fleisch” [Kalte Sterne] (1981/2004)
  • Gary Numan – “Dominion Day” [Hybrid] (2003)

  • [Best Of James Ray’s Performance & Gangwar] (1996)
  • The March Violets – “Radiant Boys” [Natural History] (1984)/[The Botanic Verses] (1993)
  • Dessau – “Unshakeable” [The Truth Hurts 1985-2000] (2009)
  • Black Flag – “It’s All Up To You” [In My Head] (1985)
  • 16volt – “Built To Last” [Skin] (1994)
  • Big Black – “Jordan, Minnesota” [The Rich Man’s Eight Track Tape] (1987)
  • Meat Beat Manifesto – “Suicide” [Underworld: Evolution (Original Soundtrack)] (2006)
  • Nitzer Ebb – “Higher” [As Is] (1991)
  • Butthole Surfers – “American Woman” [Rembrandt Pussyhorse] (1986)
  • Foetus Corruptus – “Hate Feeler” [Rife] (1988)
  • Streak – “Groovy Booty” [Break Away] (2008)
  • Apoptygma Berzerk – “Eclipse” [Live]
  • Razed In Black – “Blush” [Damaged] (2004)
  • Birmingham 6 – “Accept Reality (Razed In Black Remix)” [Mixed Judgements] (1998)
  • Die Krupps – “Fatherland (Sisters of Mercy Remix)” [Fatherland Maxi Single] (1995)
  • Iron Lung Corporation – “Chmikaze” [Big Shiny Spears] (1996)
  • Pop Will Eat Itself – “Axe of Men 2010 (Crabbi Remix)” [Demon/Axe of Men 2010] (2010)

  • 16volt – “Enjoy the Pain (dreDDup Remix)” [Unreleased Remix] (2010)

A giant set of music that is sure to please every angle of industrial rock’s varied perspective.

Little bit longer show (but not by much) for you to enjoy this week. I wanted to do less talking and play more music, but it didn’t totally end up the way I expected. It almost never does.

Lots of great music, a good mixture of the new, not so new and older classics for you to enjoy. A surprise ‘man on the street’ interview is thrown in, something I look forward to getting more of from anyone and everyone who thinks that they have something to contribute to the show.

Razor Blade Dance Floor Podcast: Episode 003

Going Back In Time

Furthering my attempt to create an active archive of older episodes, I bring (back) to you, episode # 3. My thoughts on this episode:

The strange thing about listening to these episodes again after 10 long years, is my awareness that I was far more confident in my ability to talk to strangers than I actually remember being. I still had my ‘ticks.’ I still used plenty of ‘umms’ and ‘ahhs’ while talking to the audience. I still laughed nervously and repeated generic catch phrases. But I was fearless and sure of my goal and the mission at hand. I loved the music so much, and all I wanted to do is make sure that people realized that this podcast wasn’t just a simple fanboy playing wannabe DJ in his mom’s basement. This was going to be something else, and I knew it from the get go.

The set list is sure and specific. The segues between songs had to sound smooth and purposeful without creating a feeling of disjointed juxtaposition. It had to have a definitive flow. I am amazed that I had the ability to capture that sense of cohesion between the songs so very early on. This show even had a bumper! One of about 6 or 7 that I recorded in a drunken haze, that was good enough to be used over and over again over the next decade.

When listening to this show, I was worried that I would discover that my tastes had changed or that my choices were errant in some foolish desire to pander to a larger audience during my pre-production stage. Thankfully, this was never the case and I found myself nodding in approval of most of my statements and assessments of the music being played. I am still not that crazy about that Dope Stars Inc. album.

The innocence that lurks behind my voiceprints coupled with my remarkable ability to talk slow and concisely (not an easy task for this motormouth Jersey boy) showed that I knew early on how this was going to succeed. I’d be lying to you if I made the claim that I didn’t care about such things, but it really was just as important as the musical selections.

This show has a good flow with great tracks. I still can’t pronounce the words that I mishandled during the recording of episode 3, but that is part of its charm, and a documentation of my desire to sound approachable, fallible and non-elitist. These are qualities that would diminish greatly over time, and I long to regain that sense of camaraderie and friendship that I had with my listeners during these early years.
