Pod Like a Hole
Sisters of Mercy:  Floodland

Sisters of Mercy: Floodland

January 7, 2021

100th Episode! In this season we roll our diamond dice, and it directs to one of our favorite albums of all time.  That's the great thing about this "Run the Gamut" season about Pod Like a Hole.  This time we landed on the 1986 Goth-Rock classic "Floodland" by Sisters of Mercy.  Being Eric's pick, he arrives to the showing in a duster with swinging chains and a shiny cane, ready to show Marc and Steve how those synth bass grooves and reverb guitar riffs can, in fact, get into your veins.  Will Dr. Avalanche make an appearance?  Will Marc ever get the stains out of his white linen suit?  Most importantly, will Hard Rock-meister Steve feel the spirit of rock'n'roll through this Goth pastiche?  If you care about these answers...well that's why you are here.  Enjoy.

Deck like a Hall - the 2020 Holiday Special

Deck like a Hall - the 2020 Holiday Special

December 23, 2020

It's been another year, and we've taken a break from our usual "Run the Gamut" release schedule.  Eric, Marc, and Steve get together, share some 'nog, and celebrate the holidays in this very special episode.  We discuss thing we enjoy about the yuletide season, do a very exciting Top 10 Holiday Films listicle, and and special guest drops in to say "Ho-ho-Hi!"  

It's a good time for all, and our way of singing awful carols on your doorstep, interrupting you dinner, and forcing you to throw hot coffee at us so we'll scamper silently into the dark.  

 

Enjoy.  And Happy Holidays from your Hole Boys.

December 16, 2020
  • Tonight the boys of Pod Like a Hole, who are still at large, will take you through Uncle Acid and the Deadbeat's seminal 2010 album BLOOD LUST - which is literally a candy lane of murder and mayhem.

  • We go into the history (6:20) of Kevin Starr's sludge doom occult groove rock band, some brief discussion of the genre and what even is this genre. Then the pride of Sacramento and Uncle Acid and expert of all things Rock and Horror Darryl (27:20) calls in to give share his thoughts. Followed by the track by track discussion (53:20) of the upbeat tunes and happy time lyrics of Uncle Acid's BLOOD LUST.

Killing Joke: Night Time

Killing Joke: Night Time

November 27, 2020

In this exciting third season of Pod Like A Hole, we "Run the Gamut" and each episode we sample some interesting albums by our favorite artists, track by track. For this episode, co-host Eric chooses the 80's post-punk classic "Night Time" by UK legends, Killing Joke.  

 

Over the course of this episode you will receive an in-depth retrospective of their history, other classic albums, side projects, and an exclusive track-by-track analysis of the album.  Steve will perform a ritual of dark magik, Marc will shimmy across the room with a cloak and Eric will hold his boombox up to his wife's window and try to woo her with the Goth vamping all over this record.  

All that and your favorite team unpacks the 2020 election results.

Purple Rain, Part 2! 

In this episode the gentlemen finish their discussion of the album Purple Rain by Prince and Revolution (in particular track by track discussion of I would Die 4 U, Baby I'm a Star, and Purple Rain). Tears are shed. But first - a Pod Crossover! Eric and Steve sit with Sly Dog of the Sly Dog Music Cast and Sly Dog goes deep on walking us through the first decade of Prince's career. We appreciate the Sly Dog calling in and hope you'll follow him home to his podcast in the future.
