This is a new Lost Tape for a show we previously only had 20 Minutes of, we now have the full episode which has been missing for over 18 years, lets all listen and find out what happens.

From WikiReel Big Fish is an American ska punk band from Huntington Beach, California, best known for the 1997 hit “Sell Out“. The band gained mainstream recognition in the mid-to-late 1990s, during the third wave of ska with the release of the gold certified album Turn the Radio Off. Soon after, the band lost mainstream recognition but gained an underground cult following. As of 2006, the band is no longer signed to a major record label, and has since been independent. After many line-up changes throughout the years, front man Aaron Barrett remains the only founding member in the band.

This is a new Lost Tape, replacing the previously acquired JBJ Tape from 2008. The show is now complete in full. Fans on LovelineTapes are mixed at best when it comes to the guest, some even floating a “quoting South Park” theory for determining if someone is a bad guest. I Love the band on the show, despite how off the rails the show gets, it’s an important episode. This is the only appearance for the band, ever.

From WikiZebrahead is an American rock band from Orange County, California, United States. Formed in 1996, the band has released twelve studio albums to date.

PODGODZ 235

Podgodz 235: AOL Keyword Josie and the Pussycats

Recorded 7 March 2017

 

Snow in March? Why the F not

 

Josie and the Pussycats (2001) written and directed by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont staring Racheal Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, Tara Reid, Alan Cummings, and Parker Posey.

 

A tragically mismarketed movie that flopped at the box office that I found in the most curious of ways. It’s also only 98 fucking minutes long, so Gio has to watch it TWICE

 

So I found this movie from the soundtrack, in a round about way, that did better than the movie. The disc I got was mailed from my sister in England who picked it up from the BBC WS Gramophone library disposal bin. I listened to it and really liked it. I kept listening to it so eventually figured I should rent the movie from Rogers Video, after all I had one of those coupons for something like 10 week-long rentals for $5.

 

Turns out I loved the movie. I remember it being marketed as a movie for screamy boy and girl band enthusiasts. At the time I would have still been listening to Alt rock, I was not a fan of boy bands.

 

Off all the things in the movie, it’s the fashion that doesn’t hold up. Everything is shiny and I don’t remember everyone always wearing lucite platform stripper shoes nor do I remember seeing those tops that end up being completely backless being that common outside of TV and was it just me, or was every pair of pants just above pubic level?

 

The music does hold up well. It was produced by Babyface Edmonds who decided to craft a real band. On vocals and guitar was Kay Hanley of Letters from Cleo, her then husband and bandmate Michael Eisenstein also has writing credits so also likely was a member. Big Naked seems to have been on as a performer, so probably backup vocals and also guitar. Other credits go to Matthew Sweet,  Adam Duritz (Counting Crows), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and even Jane Weidlin of the GoGos. The voices of DuJour are J’Son Thomas and John Stephan.

 

One thing that has now been lost to the whim of the internet, there was an IMDB discussion of the DuJour song Backdoor Lover, of course being completely about anal sex and one or two people arguing that it totally was not, just about someone sneaking in through your back door, it isn’t a sin and it doesn’t make me gay. Oddly, the other song Around the World is also a then obscure porn term for getting your ass eaten – which was not so common then. We are talking premo Bankok brothel level.

 

I would say the cast is great, the acting is great, the music is great, the script is good. The direction is mostly great, some of the stylized parts don’t hold up and that maybe had the budget been a little bigger they could have beefed it up a little to remove a little bit of the filler which might not be the best thing to say about a 90 minute movie.

 

The Story

Squabbling boy band DuJour (Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, Donald Faison, and  Alexander Martin) has discovered something so horrible that the record company executive Wyatt , Alan Cumming, has to kill them. The hunt for a replacement finds him in Riverdale almost running over the titular Pussycats.

 

We are introduced to their weird manager Alexander, Paul Costanzo, and sister Alexandra, Missi Pyle and Alan M, Gabriel Mann, as Josie’s erstwhile romancing interest. They get taken to the big city, meet insane record executive Fiona, Parker Posey, who is secretly inserting subliminal messages to control and extract the whim of teenagers on behalf of industry and the government since the 50s. When acts become trouble they tragically die, overdose, or find god.

 

The Pussycats become Josie and the Pussycats. The band breaks up then makes up just in time for the concert at the end, being saved by an unseen force, breaking the gears of the machine.

 

The Problem

The movie skewers consumer culture and the ever changing whims of teenagers – yet that is who they marketed to.

 

 

 

 

In Two weeks time, episode 237, Gio and Lax watch shit will probably be something horrible from Gio.

 

Don’t forget that we are a listener supported show.

Source – Kevin Tape (2016) 

This is a new Kevin Tape for this long lost show, previously missing for over 18 Years. This is the only known appearance for Fatboy Slim.

From WikiNorman Quentin Cook[1] (born Quentin Leo Cook on 31 July 1963), [2][3] also known by his stage name Fatboy Slim, is an English DJ, musician and record producer/mixer.[4]

As a solo electronic act, he has won ten MTV Video Music Awards and two Brit Awards. His records as Fatboy Slim also helped to popularise the big beat genre, which achieved mainstream popularity in the 1990s.

Cook first rose to fame in the 1980s as the bassist of the indie rock band The Housemartins who scored a UK number-one single with their a cappella cover of Isley-Jasper-Isley‘s “Caravan of Love“. After the band split, Cook formed Beats International whose début album spawned their signature hit, “Dub Be Good to Me” which was another UK number-one as well as going on to become the seventh best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. Cook then went on to join numerous other acts including Freak Power, Pizzaman and The Mighty Dub Katz to moderate success.

Cook adopted the Fatboy Slim moniker in 1996 and released Better Living Through Chemistry to critical acclaim. Follow-ups You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby, Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars, and Palookaville, as well as their associated singles, including “The Rockafeller Skank“, “Praise You“, “Right Here, Right Now“, “Weapon of Choice“, and “Wonderful Night“, were also met with positive reviews and commercial success.

In 2008, Cook founded a project called The Brighton Port Authority.[5] Cook has been responsible for successful remixes for Cornershop, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Groove Armada, and Wildchild.
