Decibel Geek Podcast

It's no secret that we like Ace Frehley around here and the new 'Space Invader' album is in constant rotation in the studio and we can't wait to hear more from the original Spaceman. And on that note....

 

Recently, Ace announced that the wait for his next album won't be as long as us Frehley fans are accustomed to. In fact, Ace is planning an all-covers album for the near future.

 

This week Aaron and Chris spin their wish list of covers that they think would benefit from an Ace-lift. You'll definitely be surprised by some of their choices that include songs from Budgie, Billy Joel, Deep Purple, Head East, Cheap Trick and much more! We also share YOUR suggestions for songs that Ace should consider for this new album. Enjoy this hour+ of songs that we want to hear covered by the space cowboy!

After a full month of covering KISS and the second half of an Anthrax career/discography discussion, Aaron and Chris are ready for a week of their favorite format; no format!

 

We return this week with volume 18 of the Radio Sucks Radio Show. If you’re new to the show, the idea behind this format is simple. We play great songs by great artists that rarely, if ever, get radio play. Corporate stations can waste your time with advertisements and the same 10 songs every hour. This week we’re breaking out awesome deep cuts from W.A.S.P., Alice Cooper, Angel, Ugly Kid Joe, Nazareth, Heavens Edge, and LA Guns. We’re also playing brand new stuff from Judas Priest and Sixx A.M. On top of that we, honor the late great Dick Wagner at the top of the show. Lots to sink your audio teeth into!

After a jam-packed KISSMAS in July, we're back this week for the second half of our Anthrax discussion with special guest Victor M. Ruiz from Mars Attacks and Talking Metal.

 

In this long-form discussion Chris, Aaron, and Victor dissect the second decade of the Anthrax story. Starting with 1993's 'Sound of White Noise' and going all the way through 2013's 'Anthems' EP, there was a lot of change in the Anthrax camp. What started out as a new life with former Armored Saint front man John Bush would lead to an interesting game of musical chairs over the years and would ultimately result in the return of Joey Belladonna.

 

In part 2 of this Anthrax career discussion, your hosts share their thoughts on the musical and personnel choices made by the band in the past 10 years. Was 'Sound of White Noise' a stab at being a grunge band? Did 'Stomp 442' have no chance at equaling the success of 'White Noise'? Was Bush's more serious side pushing out the youthful and humorous spirit of the Belladonna-era?

 

Other topics touched upon in this coversation are the behind the scenes power moves that have taken place, trouble with record companies, surviving an American tragedy, and unsung heroes in the Anthrax alumni.

 

It's a fun, thoughtful discussion and not everyone agrees with the choices made. We'd like to hear YOUR take on all of this and you can give it to us by any means listed in the Contact Us section below.

KISSMAS in July is now drawing to a close for 2014 and there were so many things we wanted to cover we figured, why not cover them all?

 

This week Aaron and Chris open up a KISS Grab Bag of topics to discuss. Listeners of the show submitted KISS-related subjects and your hosts give their take on those topics this week. Everything from discussion of KISS' merchandising reaching into things like Hello Kitty and arena football to favorite/least favorite albums, stages, costumes, songs, and much much more is covered in this free-form discussion. We also give an update on Vinnie Vincent, plans for more KISS-related shows later in the year and a track by track discussion of the Ace Frehley album 'Space Invader.'

 

A whole lot to cover to round out KISSMAS in JULY so take it all in and enjoy our talk on the Hottest Band in the Land!

While Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are the 2 constant mainstays in KISS, the lead guitar position has faced the most changes of their 40 year history.

 

This week Aaron and Chris dissect and spin their Top 10 favorite KISS guitar solos. Aaron takes the Ace Frehley route for his list and Chris pulls his 10 favorite from the combined tenure of Vinnie Vincent, Mark St. John, Bruce Kulick, and Tommy Thayer. There's some very interesting and unexpected picks. Let us know what YOUR top 10 KISS guitar solos are by commenting below or on the facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/decibelgeek).

Some of the most memorable KISS discussions we've had are the ones we've conducted with crew members. This week's guest should prove to continue that tradition.

 

Former KISS crew member Ken Barr joins Chris and Aaron this week for an in-depth discussion of a very transitional phase in the Hottest Band in the Land's career. Ken was a drum tech/guitar tech/carpenter for KISS from 1992 - 1996. His tenure included the Revenge tour, Alive III, the 1995 convention tour, MTV Unplugged, Reunion tour rehearsals, and the 1996 KROQ Weenie Roast. Lots of stories about the personalities behind the members of KISS, stories from the road, and Ken's thoughts on what the band is doing today.

 

Our talk with Ken today is just the tip of the iceberg of experiences that he's had throughout his career in the music industry. For much more, check out his book We Are the Road Crew at http://theroadcrew.wordpress.com/

This week we kick of the 2014 edition of KISSMAS in July. During these next four weeks we'll be focusing solely on KISS-releated episodes and talking to KISS-related guests; and today's is a good one!

 

Sher Bach has been in close quarters with the Hottest Band in the Land during different eras of their storied career. Sher was married to a member of NY glitter scene contemporaries The Harlots of 42nd Street. She was also a performer in her own right; working with another New York act; Ruby & the Rednecks. In this long-form discussion, Sher details her memories of the rock scene at the time including her attendance at pivotal shows in KISS' career at venues such as Coventry and the Hotel Diplomat.

 

A few years later, KISS was on top of the world and churning out enough anthems, toys, and belt buckles to satisfy the population. Her longtime friendship to KISS manager Bill Aucoin strengthened in 1977 when she went to work for Aucoin Management. 

Bill Aucoin

 

In this discussion, Sher gives details of what it was like to work on the business side of the entertainment industry and how it, pardon the pun, mirrored the rock and roll side in many ways. She also shares her thoughts on how the excesses caught up to Aucoin and cracks started to appear on the surface of the Madison Avenue money machine.

 

After a couple of shifts in employment, Sher Bach would wind up working in Puerto Rico in the 1980's. In this discussion, she tells Aaron and Chris about KISS' visit to the country during that time, her impressions of Eric Carr, and an interesting story involving Paul Stanley jamming at a small bar.

 

The Decibel Geek podcast would like to thank Sher Bach for so many great stories from her time around KISS and appreciate her candor. 

 

Sher Bach currently works with Malla Entertainment Group

Chris and Aaron tend to differ on many of the bands that they like. The dichotomy of those tastes have helped broaden their own musical palette over the course of doing this show. But one band that they both agree on is Anthrax.

 

This week Chris and Aaron are joined by Mars Attacks and Talking Metal host Victor M. Ruiz for a discussion of the first decade of Anthrax (1981-1992). In this discussion Chris, Aaron, and Victor go through the anthrax discography from their Neil Turbin-fronted debut, Fistful of Metal, through the final release of the Joey Belladonna era; Attack of the Killer B's.

 

Also included in this in-depth discussion are clips from the hosts favorite songs from albums of this era including Spreading the Disease, Persistence of Time, and the genre-bending I'm the Man EP among others.

 

Other topics covered in part 1 of this Anthrax discussion include rumors that Eddie Trunk was a key player in the removal of Neil Turbin as lead vocalist, touring troubles brought on by numerous problems including the death of Metallica's Cliff Burton, and the strange shared touring bill that had Anthrax opening up arena shows for KISS at their poppiest.

 

From the straight-ahead sound of Metal Thrashing Mad to their adventures into rap and hip hop with their cover of 'Bring the Noise,' Anthrax made a lot of movement during this first decade and we do our best to cover it all.

 

DISCLAIMER: Yes, we know that KISSMAS in July is starting next week. Never fear, part 2 of this discussion will be released during the first week of August.

***ITUNES REVIEW****

 

Super Show! *****

By Joel Hebensperger

These guys rock! If you love hard rock and/or heavy metal these are the guys to listen to. They have a heavy KISS slant but it’s not all about KISS. They cover rock and metal from all kinds of angles and it’s really interesting. Both have all kinds of odd knowledge about the music and artists they love. I especially love the KISSMAS in July episodes and can’t wait for the 2014 version. You like Vinnie Vincent? They’ve done FIVE episodes dedicated to the man. Subscribe and ENJOY!!!
