A Space Poddity 24 : Earthling

July 7, 2020

1997.  Slide into some oversized JNCO's.  Chew on a pacifier necklace.  We are HAPPY 2 B HARDCORE.  But it's not just us.  Lord Sir David Bowie himself was digging the techno beat and going on a Tarzan ride through the jungle (genre).  

Listen to this raving, slamming episode where your Bowie Boys (Marc, Steve and Eric) analyze this interesting, oft-overlooked album.  We talk about the history, do a track-by-track analysis, and discuss bonus songs, guest appearances and remixes (including the Season-One Throwback, NIN remixes of "I'm Afraid of Americans")

A Space Poddity 23 : Labyrinth

June 24, 2020

While the world was bumming out on Bowie in 1986, he had another plan.  He would squeeze his rock star persona into a Jim Henson creation and become the Goblin King:  all rock, crotch and charisma.  That's right, your Bowie Boys (Eric, Steve and Marc) along with special guests Lennox Anderson and Chris Cook, are diving into Jim Henson's "Labyrinth".  We discuss the history of the film, the lore, the songs and Bowie's shining performance.  Enjoy, and if you don't get boxed up and filed by the Trash Lady, then you don't know what nostalgia is!

A Space Poddity 22 : Young Americans

A Space Poddity 22 : Young Americans

June 9, 2020

It is spring 2020 and our world is rightfully experiencing some growing pains.  There is fear and unrest and your Bowie Boys are right there with you. Not to distract or deviate from the matter at hand, but to merely offer a brief escape, let’s all take a little trip to 1975. As Bowie is enjoying his fame, he gathers a group of amazing Black musicians and record “Young Americans”.  It stands somewhat alone in being the sole soul record in Bowie's career, but the keen-eared listener will hear some bits of his past and future.  Let Steve, Marc and Eric fascinate you with our historical anecdotes, track-by-track analysis and what 4 out of 5 iTunes reviewers consider good conversation. 

For those in the cheap seats that need to hear this again: BLACK LIVES MATTER.

A Space Poddity 21 : Reality

May 24, 2020

It's 2003 and your Bowie Boys (Marc, Steven and Eric) are walking through the rubble of post-9/11 America and watching old men rock.  That's right, it is time to discuss "Reality," the sleek, rock-forward follow-up to "Heathen".  Listen to our opinions as we dive into this track-by-track.  In addition, we blaze through the mash-ups, remixes, deleted songs and "Underworld" vamped-out versions.

May 15, 2020

In this throwback to our first season, we explore three new releases by NIN.  Your co-hosts of Pod Like a Hole give Watchmen Vol. 3, Ghosts V: Together and Ghosts VI: The Locusts the analysis they deserve.  In addition, we dive in to a review of Volume 1 of (previous guest and NIN-affiliate) Rob Sheridan's comic book series "High Level." What do we think of these new releases?  How do they rate with the other Ghosts albums?  How do these albums pair with COVID lockdowns?   Will Steve show up this time?  You shall have all these answers, and more!

A Space Poddity 20 : Tonight

May 2, 2020

In this episode of Pod Like A Hole, your hosts throw on boardshorts, unbutton a tee and sip a couple bottles of Red Stripe.  It's an island type of party as we dissect, analyze and generally sift through the history and each track of David Bowie's 1984 album Tonight.  With the help of Tina Turner, UB40 and the calypso rhythm of a rogue marimba player, we give our final word on this album.  If you follow us on the socials let us know what you think.

A Space Poddity 19 : Aladdin Sane

A Space Poddity 19 : Aladdin Sane

April 24, 2020

In this episode, we discuss the 1973 album, Aladdin Sane. Is there more to this album than just it's iconic album cover? Does Marc prefer listening to Disney's Aladdin soundtrack over this? Will Eric find a way to make a theory about aliens and the intersecting boundaries of capitalism? Does Steve nail a Mick Ronson guitar solo by vocal impressions alone? Did Mike Garson finally get the cat off his piano? All these burning questions will be answered and more.

Hijack Hijinx : David Bowie and the Metal Gear Solid Connection

Hijack Hijinx : David Bowie and the Metal Gear Solid Connection

April 18, 2020

Metal Gear?

As he is wont to do once per season, Steve has hi-jacked the show again. Last season it was Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy, this season it's Metal Gear. But at least he has a point this time: the Metal Gear game series has many ties to the David Bowie universe. From in game plot points, to Hideo Kojimi's very Bowie-esque approach to his art. Please join Steve and returning guest Joe Vierra as they give an overview on the series, how it ties to David Bowie and other pop culture, and it caps with a top 5 metal gear moments. 

See you soon for Aladdin Sane.

B-Side : Raw Power

B-Side : Raw Power

April 10, 2020

This B-Side brings you another episode where a David Bowie produced Iggy Pop record is discussed. In 1973, just a few months ahead of the release of Bowie's Aladdin Sane, came the album by Iggy and The Stooges, Raw Power. This album has been cited as being one of the most influential punk records of all-time, so let's see if the hosts agree.

A Space Poddity 18 : The Man Who Sold the World

A Space Poddity 18 : The Man Who Sold the World

April 3, 2020

Your hosts come face to face with The Man Who Sold the World in another exciting chapter of A Space Poddity. We dissect David Bowie's third studio album released in 1970 by a track by track discussion and explore Bowie's hard rock wizard sound that lays the foundation he'll later build the house that Ziggy Stardust lives in. Of course, we discuss the resurgance of the title song made famous by Nirvana's unplugged cover. 

So check in with all the madmen as we measure the width of a circle and compute the facts of the supermen into the saviour machine. After all, no need to get the running gun blues through the black country rocky terrain otherwise you could get shaken cold by the man who sold the world.
