A Futuristic Past

A Futuristic Past

Technology. Music. When you marry the two, a bit of magic can happen—and it oftentimes does, but what happens when technology starts getting in the way of how music is created and consumed? If anyone can grab a laptop and a bootleg version of some software that allows you to produce and create your own music then where does "making it", and having to earn your way to the top fit in? Where does quality control start and end? In the music industry's current state, it seems like anyone and everyone can get a "record deal"—and well they pretty much have (if we're being honest here). This has lead music as a whole to look and feel more diluted than ever before. But is it really at the fault of how technology is being utilized within the industry? Many people would say yes, and probably just as many would say no. Jack White may look and sound like the final boss you have to overcome when you're trying to escape Corktown, but the way he looks at music as a whole directly translates into the music he creates. In his case, the less modern technology the better, and that works flawlessly for him but there is a slew of music industry veterans that have embraced and utilized every piece of modern technology they could get their hands on and created some absolute masterpieces while doing so. So which is it? Digital or Analog? Hell, why not both? So bring your acoustic guitar, your drum machine, your favorite music medium and sit your ass down for this one.

Or when that one song comes on that helps get you through that last half hour at work. But what is it that enables a certain song to be able to get you going? Do people use a lot of the same songs in order to find motivation in what they're doing? Are they're key elements that make a song motivational?

It's been a long flight but you're finally up and able to stretch your cramped legs as you make your way through the airport. As you're hurrying your way to baggage claim you hear a familiar name come over the loudspeaker. Duff McKagan? "Why the hell is Duff McKagan welcoming me to Seattle", you ask yourself. It's really beside the point, but odd nonetheless. "Is this the 'Seattle Sound' everyone has been talking about?", you wonder quietly in your head. Maybe it's Peugeot Sound? That would make more sense, at least to you. You quickly find the nearest person that doesn't appear to be a tourist and ask them to help you find the "Seattle Sound"—of course you mean Peugeot Sound but he doesn't know that, and frankly at this point neither do you. "Seattle Sound"? The man replies with a confused look on his face."You mean like Nirvana?" he replies with heavy toned sarcasm in his voice. "No?" You reply, now even more confused. "Nirvana is a band, but what does that have to do with Seattle Sound?". "It's THE Seattle Sound, man" the man replies as he grows visibly irritated. "Look", the man says, "there is a record shop down the street, head there and when you get inside have them point you toward Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana—just to name a few". "Okay sounds good, thanks man" you reply in a hurried nervous voice. You part ways and from there you do just as he said, and from that day on, your life will never be the same. There are more than a few critically acclaimed musical acts to hail from Seattle, but none that caused as much noise like the ones that developed their own grungy, dirty, heavy, and unique sound. Dubbed the "Seattle Sound", these bands created something new, something unlike everything else that was currently bleeding the airwaves dry at the time and they were able to pave their own lane into music history by doing so. In this episode, we're joined by CJ from the PodAskew Podcast and we're talking all things Seattle, and all things music. With a heavy focus on Grunge and the "Seattle Sound", we have all come to know and love. Whether you consider yourself a fan of grunge music or not (you might even be a fan and not even know it), you're not going to want to miss this one. It's season two episode twelve of your favorite fish monger's favorite music podcast.

It's always refreshing when a musician takes a step back and realizes they have more to say than what their current offering might allow them to. Ahhh yes the side project, that's it—It's Kind of like having a mistress, except there is usually considerably less drama, though there are always exceptions (insert crazy side project band drama story here). It's even more refreshing when that side project unleashes something completely different than what you're used to hearing from that particular artist—and that's exactly what we get with Brian Elmquist and JOY CLUB. Better known for his role as singer/songwriter/guitarist and 1/3 of The Lone Bellow, Brian decided to try something different this time.  JOY CLUB is the collaborative musical effort of Brian and long time friend and producer Justin Glasco. JOY CLUB became the outlet for all things experimental when it came to the music that both Brian and Justin were accustomed to. But for Elmquist, it was about more than just experimenting with new sounds and ideas. JOY CLUB became a place to process the hardships, truths, and vulnerabilities that come with sobriety, which for Elmquist was something brand new, just like JOY CLUB.  We had the pleasure of catching up with Brian, whom we all consider to be a good friend to talk about all things JOY CLUB, the new EP, The Lone Bellow, sobriety, and how he's navigating the difficulties of being a creative during a pandemic. It's season two episode eleven of your favorite grocery store clerk's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO! Find JOY CLUB on facebook! Check out the new EP "Just A Dream" here!

Michael Jackson. Chances are when you hear that name a few thoughts come to mind. Many of those thoughts were strategically placed right where you were thinking about them, by the media. Few people have been scrutinized and demonized as badly as the late great King Of Pop, and for what? The theories and allegations seem to never end, but with no actual factual proof, they disappear as fast as they appeared to begin with. No longer around to defend himself, his name and reputation have had to rely on those willing and brave enough to defend him. People like his nephew Taj Jackson, who we had the pleasure of sitting down with to talk all things Michael, including his new film "The Truth Runs Marathons"—and to say nothing was off-limits is putting it pretty lightly. Whether you're an MJ fan or not, this is an episode that might cause you to lose the pause button. Innocent until proven guilty, or guilty until proven innocent? It doesn't really matter because "Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons". It's season two, episode ten of your favorite Jackson's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO! For all things Taj, visit his official website. Find Taj on twitter, facebook, and Instagram!

The resurgence of the vinyl record is undeniable, and more than a few years into a comeback vinyl and vinyl collectors seem to be everywhere. But why? What is it about this nearly one-hundred-year-old medium that has sucked everyone in and eventually lead to it outselling CDs? In this episode, we had the pleasure of digging in the crates and catching up with Kevin Smokler and Christopher Boone, director/producers of the brand new (and fantastically done) documentary VINYL NATION—where we got to talk with them about all things vinyl. The film gives you a first-hand look into the comeback of the record. A little bit of history, more than a few stories, and the search for the truths of those finding themselves immersed in a world where they have much more in common than they might have once thought. You're not going to want to miss this one. It's Season Two Episode Nine of your favorite vinyl collector's favorite music podcast.

It's not every day that someone refuses to pay sixty or even one hundred dollars to see one of America's greatest musical treasures, but sometimes mistakes are made and in return—lessons are learned. Tom Petty (with and without The Heartbreakers) is synonymous with Americana as we know it. From scaring the s#!t out of us with his extra creepy music videos when we were kids, to us all coming of age together with his monstrous hit "Free Fallin'". If Tom Petty wasn't a part of some sort of your life growing up, did you ever really even listen to music bro? This week we finally caught up with our mate Will from The Limehouse Podcast to talk all things Tom, all things Petty, and all things Heartbreaker. We heard he fancied himself some Petty so we thought who better to have on an episode all about Tom Petty. We had a bloody fu$%in' riot of a time, and you will too whether you like it or not. It's season two, episode eight of your favorite Brit's favorite music podcast.

Some say that musicians are a dime a dozen, and to some degree that may be true. The only thing about that is, not all musicians are created equal—and the ones who stand out are the ones that break the rules, defy the odds, and turn the music industry on it's head. That's exactly what Edward "Eddie" Van Halen did when he set out on his path to be one of the greatest rock stars the world will ever know. Whether you're a Van Halen fan or not, Eddie's impact on the music industry as a whole is undeniable. Van Halen may have had more breakups and makeups than Paris Hilton, but that revolving lineup lead to some of the greatest and most renowned rock ballads of all time. When Eddie picked up a guitar, no one was ever really sure what they were going to hear, only that it would be something they most likely had never heard before. What Eddie did with a guitar is what Salvador Dali did with a paintbrush, and they will both forever be known for being one of the greatest to ever do what they did. It's with a heavy heart that we bring you the seventh episode of the second season of your favorite band's, favorite guitar player's—favorite music podcast. Edward Lodewijk Van HalenJanuary 26th, 1955 - October 6th, 2020--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/infectiousgroovepodcast/support
It's not every day that a little bit of Twitter banter turns into having the opportunity to interview the top person on your list of people you'd want to interview for your podcast, but every now and then a little social media miracle occurs—and in this case that is exactly what happened for Russ. By the grace of the Twitter gods, the man, the myth, the legend, drummer, author, and one-sixth of the original line up for The Black Crowes—Mr. Steve Gorman joined us for what turned out to be a fantastic conversation about the history of the band, moving on, his new book, Trigger Hippy, and so much more.

From one hundred dollar cell phones to two hundred and fifty dollar concert tickets, sprinkle in pay by the package cable TV— Granddad always said  "That's how they getcha". This week we caught up with Rob of the Fat, Drunk, And Stupid Podcast to talk about music festivals. The good, the bad, the great, and the never again. We also discuss our current situation with virtual music festivals/concerts and the potential return of in-person music festivals. What will the musical future of festivals hold? Not even Dr. Fauci knows, and well he's a Doctor. We said f**k that and decided to get a second opinion so we asked Dr. Pepper, and he didn't know either—but he was able to quench our thirst (which might hold us over for a little while). Music News. Jammy Jams. And a damn good time. Ten dollar beers, and seven dollar bottles of water. That's how they getcha. Make sure to tune in to the Fat, Drunk, And Stupid Podcast.

What do Pink Floyd, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tears For Fears, and Robert Palmer have in common? Yes, that's right they're all musicians. You also probably have at least one of them (hopefully more) in your record collection. But that's not all, the connection runs a bit deeper than that—and that connection is legendary musician Guy Pratt. With a music career spanning more than thirty years, Guy is best known for his prolific Bass playing with a myriad of legendary acts. He's also been an actor and worked on a multitude of TV and film soundtracks including Dick Tracy, Last Action Hero, and Hackers just to name a few. Guy also runs a successful Youtube series called "Lockdown Licks", and has a book that he has written called "My Bass and Other Animals". In this episode, we had the pleasure of being able to sit down for a quick chat with Guy where talked music, his career highlights, and even Detroit. It's not every day that you get to sit down with someone who's resume is as impressive as Guy's so you all are in for a real treat with this one.

This week we discuss all things about this little old group that maybe some of you have heard of, but most probably have not—The Beatles. That's right, an entire episode dedicated to what many say is the first "boy band" ever created. No one can deny the influence they've had throughout the years when it comes to music.

We also had the pleasure of catching up with someone that we not only consider a personal friend but who is also the bass player for a little band named WALLS OF JERICHO.

Let's talk Pizza for a second. Simple ingredients but not always created equal from one pie to another. It absolutely depends on who makes the pizza, where said pizza is made, and with what ingredients. The same can be said for live music—as it's definitely not all created equal for nearly the exact same reasons. This is also a good factor on which to judge if someone is trustworthy. Mama always said, "if they don't like pizza or live music, boy they probably ain't for you". Okay, okay Mama didn't actually say that, but she probably wanted to, and that's close enough. In the Season One Finale of Infectious Groove Podcast we're talking concerts. The good, the bad, the great, and the in-betweens. All live shows are obviously not created equal and we explore the reasons why we think that is. Whether your first concert is on the horizon or you've been to so many you lost count 10 years ago, you're not going to want to miss this one—the 29th episode of your neighbor's, son's, third cousin once removed's favorite music podcast. We'll see you back here in two weeks for the premiere of Season Two.

*DISCLAIMER - This episode contains spoilers about the outcome of the tournament. If you're behind on episodes it is advised that you get all caught up before starting this episode. Well, it's been a wild ride over the last 16 weeks and we hope that you have enjoyed this experimental tournament of sorts as much as we did. Michelle came, saw, and conquered her way through the first half of the bracket, but was soon dethroned as it was advised we leave the decision making up to you (the listeners) in lieu of continuing to receive death threats based upon her extremely controversial rating system —just kidding (kind of). There have been ups, downs, shocking revelations, and huge disappointments—and you've probably almost driven your car off the road a time or two while tuning in. It's okay we understand, and now you no longer have to worry about the airbag going off because you're punching your steering wheel so hard while screaming at the stereo.  We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for tuning in, engaging with us, and voting. You all are the ones that made this thing possible at a time where we all needed something to keep our minds off the news. AND THE WINNER IS...--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/infectiousgroovepodcast/support

Okay okay, so you've read the title of this episode and I am willing to bet you're either singing (out loud) the theme song from CSI: Las Vegas (shame on you), or maybe you're thinking about when you got super stoned and watched Alice meet the Caterpillar for the first time. Either way, you're on to something here, and hopefully, it isn't an ongoing love for a certain band that will remain anonymous. With that being said, the only who's we talk about around here are from Whoville, but there is no need to be a Grinch about it. This week we are talking about the long musical road that got us to where we are now. The good, the bad, the emo, and the ugly. We take a deep dive into what made us the musical maniacs we are today.
