Radio Free Hipster Ep. 76: Blood for the Beast

Demons, gore and song requests: these are the things that Radio Free Hipster's 76th episode are made of.

It's got a slightly smaller-than-usual number of tracks, but that's simply because some of the songs themselves are a bit lengthy. And, hey, I can only demand so much listening time from you fine people.

All-in-all, it's an eclectic mix of rock, rap and pure evil. But mostly the evil.

'Cause, y'know, 'tis the season!

Show Notes:

Intro: Baddd Spellah – "Radio Free Hipster Theme (feat. Beefy)"
Beefy bathes weekly in the blood of 16 virgins. It says so on his Wikipedia.

Track 1: DJ Schmolli – "Drop it Like Black Sabbath"
Kind of a weird track to start on, given its slow, plodding nature, but I think you'll feel it.

Z's 1st interlude: "A happy little ditty that also featured some Anton LaVey dialog."
Yep, the Black Pope himself.

Track 2: Americans UK – "Sons of Ba'al"
Be sure to check out A-UK's comics. Good stuff.

Track 3: The Exorcist dialog / MC Lars "Roommate from Hell (funky49 rmx)"
I love funk49's remixes. I only wish he could find the time to make more of them.

Track 4: Zombies! Organize!! – "I Like Turtles"
This one was a request by listener, Jimi, and I appear to have forgotten to include the song title/artist info in the set recap!

Track 5: Marc with a C – "Sweet Transvestite"
Be sure to catch Marc's set at next month's Nerd Invasion. He's slated to perform right before the dawn showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Track 6: Creature Feature – "A Gorey Demise"
Gotta give it up for Bonehand for turning me on to Creature Feature!

Z's 2nd interlude: "Even today's background music is a request."
Big-ups also go out to Stuart for hipping me to the Prodigy cover of The Specials' "Ghost Town."

Track 7: virt – "Once Upon a Time in Transylvania"
There really aren't words to describe how very much I enjoy the music of virt. There is only the raw emotion. And also the creepy fan mail.

Track 8: The Bloodclan – "Prey"
Providing you ignored my previous call-to-arms, go and snag The Bloodclan's Amor Sanguinis. Now.

Track 9: The Consortium of Genius – "Bucket O' Blood"
The COG are always good Halloween listening.

Track 10: Deathmobile – "Blood Buckets"
Dave the Knave requested some Deathmobile, and I thought this track made a wonderful addition.

Track 11: Schaffer the Darklord – "Buckets of Blood (feat. KABUTO THE PYTHON)"
"I know that it circulates the body in ways / that could mystify a high school science teacher for days."

Z's final interlude: "Your just gonna have to wait until next October."
Yes, this ep. closes out this year's Halloween Crap-tacular. I hope you were entertained, enlightened and maybe a little creeped out.

Track 12: Sticks Downey – "Milk Duds and Guts"
Much love to Wockenfuss of the Sticks crew for tossing this track my way just in time for this edition.

Eye-shuh mentioned in the previous round of show comments that she'd like to hear a literary-themed podcast in honor of NaNoWriMo, and I have become quite fond of that idea. I've also got a special concept in mind for November's second podcast. December will see both the annual holiday special and a year-end wrap-up, and that, as they say, will be that.

Still, if there are any tracks or artists you absolutely have to hear before the clock runs out on 2009, just give me a yell. I'll do my best to work it in there somewhere.

This sounds like it'll be a good one. Excited to get home and listen.

Also, Z., you've got to come to NOLA and come to a COG show one day. So much awesome. I'll buy you a beer.

"Drop it Like Black Sabbath" is absolutely evil.

and hilarious.

Z. said...

It's been ages since I made it down to New Orleans, Colonel! I may have to take you up on that offer at some point. :)

I agree on both counts, funk.

Colonel Panic said...

Definitely. COG's Dr. Z (no doubt your favorite) is married to my cousin, so I try to hit up their shows often.

Jimi said...

This was a great episode!

And not just because I was mentioned in it

I really enjoyed it

eye-shuh said...

Woot! Can't wait!

Another great episode!

Z. said...

I envy your family, CP. ;)

Thanks, Jimi! I was a little worried that, because of the longer songs, some folks might ge ta bit restless during this ep, but seems like y'all liked it. :)

Thanks, Eye-shuh! And thanks also for the show suggestion!
