A Space Poddity 5 : Diamond Dogs

July 3, 2019

Your Bowie Boys have returned to review the oft misunderstood mishmash of the 1974 dystopia known as Diamond Dogs.  Marc, Eric  and Steve dive deep into the dirt and grime of Hunger City 1984.  We give you a track-by-track analysis of the album, a little peek into David's life and recording process at the time, and pop culture in 1974.  In addition, we go over some scraps and B-Sides from this time, as well as the Bowie live albums "David Live!" and "Cracked Actor" as well as the accompanied BBC film.  

Enjoy!  Let us know your ranking (how many out of 5 Bolts?)

A Space Poddity 04 : Station to Station

A Space Poddity 04 : Station to Station

June 12, 2019

In the latest installment of Pod Like a Hole, the gang goes Station To Station. They cover the crazy recording sessions that David and the band lived through, the nutzo influences our hero was living through, and the bonkers full length feature film The Man Who Fell To Earth lived through. All in the year 1976. This is all preamble to our track by track analysis of the 6 excellent songs found on Station to Station. It was a late night and Eric drank all the milk and Marc unleashed the secret of peppers. If you'd like to support Marc's pepper habit please consider becoming a patron over at Patreon https://www.patreon.com/join/podlikeahole. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as Steve did keeping Thin White Duke hours editing it.

A Space Poddity 3 : Never Let Me Down

A Space Poddity 3 : Never Let Me Down

May 25, 2019

If you've ever wondered how it would be possible to have three guys talk for nearly 3 hours about David Bowie's self-admittedly worst album, then wonder no more. Our trusty Diamond Dice sends us to David Bowie's 17th studio album, Never Let Me Down, where we traverse through what's considered David Bowie's career nadir.  Eric, Marc, and Steve go track by track and compare it to the re-worked 2018 versions available on Loving the Alien (1983-1988) to see if this album got a bad rap, and we're not just talking about Mickey Rourke's appearance on the record.

A Space Poddity 2 : Space Oddity

A Space Poddity 2 : Space Oddity

May 6, 2019

Pod Like A Hole presents:  A Space Oddity  

02:  "Space Oddity"

Marc, Eric and Steve, your hosts, rolled the Diamond Dice.  Fate chose the next album and that choice sent us into a tin can, where we have been ever since...sending a track-by-track analysis of the David Bowie album "Space Oddity" back to ground control.  Does anyone hear our transmission?

Enjoy this episode as we dissect this strange, folk-a-delic album.  We look into the world of 1969, and have special legacy guest Jeff Anderson explain the politics and music scene of the summer of love from first hand experience in a series of sound bites.  

Does Major Tom ever get back to Earth?  Does the Growth Lab ever stop sucking life from their Messiah?  Does Hermione enjoy her letter?  We get into all of it and hope you enjoy it.  

Please let us know if you do, or don't...or if we missed any good details.

Pod Like a Hole Phase 2:  A Space Poddity

"Blackstar"

After sending Pod Like a Hole into the black hole at the end of Season 1, your boys have returned as a singularity.  An enlightened entity of hope, wit and outrageous flash.... Marc, Steve and Eric have returned to host Season 2:  A Space Poddity.  

For each of these episodes we will randomly (thanks to our "Diamond Dice") review a David Bowie album.  As always we'll give history, pop culture, and patented Pod Like A Hole humor and camaraderie.  In this premiere episode, we begin at the end with the delightfully nu-jazzy swan song, known as "Blackstar".  We bid Ol Button Eyes adieu, just as we nod bonjour.  

In this episode we also discuss Kendrick Lamar, Aleister Crowley, and some recently dropped "Nine Inch News".

Well, it's done for now. After trekking through all Nine Inch Nails albums, singles, scores, and side projects, the hosts finally reach the end. We rank the albums and share our "Top 9" Nine Inch Nails Songs (It's actually 10, having O be the true #1, but we're sooo clever). As this season (series?) comes to its conclusion, we also look ahead to what's next.
