Decibel Geek Podcast

In a completely new experimental series we read and react to a Hit Parader magazine from back in the day with Rock Mag '83! Reaction videos seem to be a big trend these days but, in this case, we're reacting to the printed word. The Rock Mag series has us flipping through the pages of an old school rock magazine and reacting to it. Did these articles age well? Do we agree with the takes given? Are these letters to the editor actually legit? We go through it all, crack wise, and share our opinions of their opinions!

We tackle some heavy stuff this week as we explain how we were Universally Rejected. A growing group of rock podcasts were recently booted off Spotify and we were one of them. We explain the situation and what changes are going to take place from this recent development. Hear us out and give us your feedback as we really look to the listeners for the next steps!

Universally Rejected

We also touch on the recent passing of Jesus Chrysler drummer Craig Duffy. It's a sad loss to his family, friends, and fans. Our condolences go out to you all and, in tribute, all music on the show this week is by Jesus Chrysler. Shine on, Duffy.

Additionally, we are saddened by the recent news of the ending of the Rock & Metal Combat Podcast. It is quite a surprise and this week we share our feelings on the podcast, the possible plans for Ralph and Ian going forward, and a proposal from Chris to the guys directly. If you agree, let 'em know!

This week Toby Wright joins us for an in-depth discussion on the making of the Alice in Chains classic 'Jar of Flies.'

Released on January 25, 1994, through Columbia Records, it is the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with the first week sales exceeding 141,000 copies in the United States. Recorded over the course of a week at the London Bridge Studio in Seattle, it was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 1995; Best Recording Package and Best Hard Rock Performance for "I Stay Away". It has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA, selling 4 million copies worldwide.

In this long-form talk, Toby recounts his memories of getting the phone call from Jerry Cantrell to book studio time once the band got off tour. Assuring Toby that plenty of material was ready to go, Cantrell revealed later that no material had been written as of day 1 of recording. What happened next can only be described as catching lightning in a bottle (or a jar). Wright and the members of the band hunkered down for 14+ hour days and churned out 7 amazing songs in 7 days. With a 10 day window for mixing, Jar of Flies took form from conception to finished product in just 20 days.

Additionally, Toby shares his memories of the creation of the songs as well as production techniques used for creating the timeless sound of Jar of Flies.

Also, Toby and his partner Jay give the details of their company, Taummhoms. Taummhoms is a subscription based sleep sound streaming service that can be accessed from any internet connected device.
