Paris 1919JOHN CALE (not to be confused with JJ CALE or JOHN CAGE) was one of the founding members of The VELVET UNDERGROUND, and kept himself plenty busy in the decade following his split from that band in 1968.  In addition to producing some of the most important and influential rock recordings of the late 1970s (like PATTI SMITH’s Horses and The STOOGES first LP) he had quite an amazing and productive solo career.  This episode of GE plucks many of the highlights of Mr. CALE’s LPs from that era for your listening pleasure.  Hail the Godfather Of Punk, fellow music geeks!

KIM FOWLEY R.I.P. On Geek EmaNation Podcast!

Kim FowleyKIM FOWLEY was a thorn in the side of the beast called pop music for over 50 years.  He was arguably the trashy flip side of PHIL SPECTOR, recording crazy wild novelty singles just for the fun of it in the 1960s and then putting together acts like The RUNAWAYS and VENUS AND THE RAZORBLADES in the 1970s.  In later years he was more like an underground svengali, showing up in various towns and recording outrageous records with local musicians, and then disappearing just as quickly.  Irreverent, difficult, visionary — he definitely left his mark.  The Animal Man beckons, fellow music geeks!

HEINO On Geek EmaNation Podcast!

4:33 pm

HeinoFor those not familiar with the dubious pleasures of the German pop music genre known as “Schlager”, you will get a 2-hour crash course lesson with this episode of GE.  The King Of Schlager known as HEINO gets free reign to spew 50-some years of folky/dancy/schlocky pop bliss.  If you’re like JELLO BIAFRA and have a strong ear and stomach for some outre sounds, you’re in luck.  Schlocky shocky stuff for y’all, fellow music geeks!

Peter Jefferies Uncensored On Geek EmaNation Podcast!

PJ ElectricityLong-time fans like The Rock’N’Roll Nurse were very excited in 2013 with the reissues of PETER JEFFERIES’ 1st and 2nd solo records from the 1990s (The Last Great Challenge In A Dull World and Electricity) and a planned tour set to begin right here in the Bay Area.  But alas, an overzealous Dept. Of Homeland Security decided we needed to be protected from the New Zealand musician’s art rather than be allowed to enjoy it.  Mr. JEFFERIES may never be allowed to tour here, but you can hear his music and snippets of a free-wheeling telephone discussion on this DHS unapproved episode of Geek EmaNation.  Audio blows against the empire, fellow music geeks!
