Pop Group 2THE POP GROUP exploded brilliantly in the late ’70s-early ’80s and then members splintered off for years to other worthy musical projects.  They reemerged in the 2010s with great performances, a new album (Citizen Zombie) and some essential reissues.  Last year brought a re-release of their seminal sophomore effort For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder, and this episode of The Geek EmaNation Show features that album in its entirety along with feisty commentary by co-founder MARK STEWART.  Time to draw a line, fellow music geeks!

Richard LloydJust a year after TELEVISION released 2 major-label LPs that got critical accolades but few sales, the two guitarists from the band released remarkable solo records that remain sadly overlooked.  The Rock’N’Roll Nurse noticed both TOM VERLAINE’s self-titled debut and RICHARD LLOYD’s Alchemy, and will present both in their entirety on this TV-loving episode of The Geek EmaNation Show.  Life after TELEVISION can be good, fellow music geeks!

SpiritL.A. hippie/jazz/pop pioneers SPIRIT were a big part of the early rock education of host The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, and looked in the late ’60s like they would be as huge as contemporaries JIMI HENDRIX and LED ZEPPELIN.  But like so many near-miss stories, they had the supreme bad luck of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Hear their classic LP 12 Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus in its entirety, as well as choice selections from their previous 3 records on this love-bead laden episode of The Geek EmaNation Show.  Truckin’ Topanga-style, fellow music geeks!

Teenage ZombieI’ve never seen the film myself, and may never bother, but the soundtrack to I Was A Teenage Zombie showed up at my doorstep (because I bought it on Discogs) and it brought me back to some of my favorite indie-rock bands from the 1980s in a big way.  Share a celebration of the golden age of indie-rock with me, The Rock’N’Roll Nurse, on this nostalgia-filled episode of The Geek EmaNation show.  Thirty years rolls by in a flash, fellow music geeks!
