Razor Blade Dance Floor Podcast: Episode 001

Going Back In Time

I get an occasional request to have access to the older episodes of Razor Blade Dance Floor. It isn’t really that often, but however minimal it may be, there seems to be a general interest in hearing the older episodes again.

The best way to accommodate this is to just go ahead and build an archive, one episode at a time, starting right at the very beginning.


Here is episode #1.

My thoughts 10 years later:

Razor Blade Dance Floor was an original concept that I came up with in 1994. It was going to be a print magazine that was intended to be the Rolling Stone or Alternative Press of industrial music. Due to lack of funds or initiative, magazines like Industrial Nation and Outburn filled that void, so I believed that this was no longer necessary. I began writing for Outburn Magazine, a magazine that originally started out as a Goth/Industrial magazine, but later morphed in to a metal/punk/hardcore scene-zine, mostly because of the economics of targeting a much larger audience. I figure the path to that scene was lined with the gold provided by advertisers, something that was little to non-existent in the Goth/Industrial world.

I can’t fault Outburn for the change in direction; we all need to put food on the table and I get it. Once Outburn made the full transition to a punk/metal rag, I decided that Razor Blade Dance Floor could still be a thing. I continued writing for Outburn, but felt the desire to enter the promotional world of industrial rock and metal. This niche market was being covered by e-zines, most notably Re:Gen Magazine and Fabryka in the early years, but I felt that it was still grossly underrepresented. The early 2000’s saw the exponential growth of the Internet and it was only then that I realized that I could utilize the free platforms of Mp3.com and MySpace to begin my early dabbling in musical promotion. It was not an easy way to reach people at first, mainly because I had no idea what I was doing.

Podcasting became a thing, and I admired the platform greatly, especially since there wasn’t a requirement of an over-the-air broadcast or constant web stream. You could download an episode and listen to it at your leisure wherever you wanted to. After spending 2 years studying the way podcasts were being produced and distributed, I decided that this is where Razor Blade Dance Floor needed to be. Episode #1 was recorded and published in November of 2006.

This first episode isn’t as cringe inducing as I had remembered it being. I am still proud of it. I lack the confidence level that I would later gain as the podcast grew, but that is to be expected. I dreamed of a large audience early on and I approached it with the professionalism that I expected audiences wanted. I took it very seriously, and I believe that the early episodes really exhibit what I intended the podcast to be. I’m jealous of the simplicity by which I approached those early episodes. It was a form of naivety that makes these early episodes so endearing. Knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t change a thing.
