A Space Poddity 8 : Tin Machine

September 4, 2019

You know.  When we started this podcast, your cohosts Marc, Eric and Steve, set out with a simple purpose.  To connect to people through their love of music via a jovial conversation, laying out the spoils of our various takes on the deep dive in discographies. They've been holding hands and traversing through the history of music in this season 2:  David Bowie. All was going well. Best.Laid.Plans.  


Cut to Shady Pines Mental Institue:  

A nurse walks into a room.  It is shadowed by the afternoon sun hitting the blinds just so.  Three patients in the room don't notice.  Their poor minds are gone.  A serious trauma twisted their neurons into their emotions and blocked any further chance at experiencing the world in the same way.  Marc is curled on the floor, hitting his head onto a wood block, repeatedly.  Eric crying as he drops his spoonful of jello again, not getting a single bite into his mouth.  Steven, humming madness as he tries to connect a lego to a duplo.  The doctor approaches the nurse, sighs and shrugs, "What's all this then?"  To which the nurse replied, "Tin Machine, doc.  Those sweet boys never recovered from Tin Machine.  It broke their minds."

Enjoy the maddening adventure in to the colossal assault on our dignity. Tin Machine.

A Space Poddity 7 : Scary Monsters…(Part 1)

August 14, 2019


In this episode, your intrepid hosts look under the bed and open the coat closets to find David Bowie's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps). This 1980 album captured the quintessential Bowie sound and style that (spoiler alert) your hosts swooned over for an episode so long we had to split it into two parts. In this first chapter, we talk about the year 1980 and all goings on during that time period. We also delve into the first four tracks of Scary Monsters. 

Next week will bring the thrilling conclusion.

In this B-Side episode, we quickly look at David Bowie's 1993 soundtrack album, The Buddha of Suburbia. The soundtrack was considered a lost release for many years after it was deleted, despite Bowie claiming it was his favorite album. Do the hosts agree?

A Space Poddity 6 : Black Tie White Noise

July 24, 2019

In this episode we learn that David loved the 90s almost as much as he loved Iman. In this episode of Space Poddity - Pod Like a Hole Phase 2, the audio chrononauts travel to 1993 and dissect an artifact very much of it's time: Black Tie White Noise. Marvel at the plastic production. Be amazed at the on the nose commentary. Envy the giant shoulder pads. And be thankful it's not as bad as Never Let Me Down but not by much. 2.5 hours of Eric, Marc, and Steve trying to mine for gold in David's New Jack City.
