Sonic Overload 1/9/12

We’re on the eve of the first presidential primary, in New Hampshire. And you’re not getting any up-to-the-minute coverage here. Maybe next week. As I’ve said recently, there will be NO shortage of material to use on here. I’m just waiting a bit.

I close the show by marking David Bowie’s 65th birthday (yikes!). I’m currently in the middle of reading the latest biography about Bowie, Starman, by Paul Trynka. The author points out that “Jean Genie” is a pretty blatant ripoff of the Yardbirds’ cover of “I’m A Man” and it’s hard to argue. It doesn’t mean it’s not a great song, though—Bowie definitely adds his stamp to it. A great video of Bowie performing the song on the BBC show “Top Of the Pops” just surfaced and you should check it out on YouTube. Something else I noticed, while recording the show, is that the Fatal Microbes song I played borrows from the riff of the Bowie song “Panic In Detroit” (from Aladdin Sane, the same album as “Jean Genie”). Everything gets recycled, I guess—and the Microbes song creates something different, as well.

Play loud, as always...
