The backstory behind this episode is simple enough. Sama was hanging out with motion_correct, listening to some records and jamming, when suddenly one track snapped to the foreground. The song sounded grungy and epic by all means, and it instantly became clear we needed to discuss this on the podcast. So the next day, Sama treks back to motion_correct’s house to record a quick chat about this 4-side compilation album featuring some incredible West Coast Nuggets.

While you’re here, make sure to check out motion_correct’s eclectic international mix called Culture Shock (episode 155 of TVE)!

A few months ago Keith and Sama recorded an episode of The Vinyl Exam in Vamp, the Oakland record store. Unfortunately the audio was lost to time (and computer glitches), but after running into Tracy at a local record swap in LA they talked records and set up this conversation between Keith and Tracy where they talk records, music and Vamp's 5th anniversary.

NOTE: This episode is posting Thursday, March 1 instead of Monday, March 5 to allow those in the Bay Area to check out some of the Vamp-related events happening this weekend.

This episode, Keith takes a look at what a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band did during a period that saw their popularity slipping and their die-hard fans turn away. While the band repeatedly made decisions that alienated fans, they did so with an eye on taking musical chances and the result is easily the most interesting music of their career.

This episode we have an eclectic international mix by motion_correct. Check out what he has to say about it!

"The song selection for this mix is meant to reflect my appreciation for world music. Transitions between songs hopefully evoke a sense of traveling to both foreign and familiar places. Despite the differences in styles a common groove may be noticed throughout the mix which is intended to stitch together these seemingly disparate sounds."

Tracklist
Nektar - Nelly the Elephant (Germany, 1974)
L.T.D. Disco - We Party Hearty (U.S.A., 1977)
Songs and Dances of Vietnam - People and Fighters Unite (Vietnam, 1991)
Knxwledge - Rude (U.S.A, 2015)
Baby Consuelo - Todo Dia Era Dia De Indio (Brazil, 1981)
M.Ashraf - Arzoo (Pakistan, 1975)
Ersen - Dostlar merhaba (Turkey, 1976)
Gato Barbieri (ft. Lonnie Liston Smith) - Vidala Triste (Argentina, 1973)
Dada Ques - Human Factor (Russia, 2017)

This episode, Keith has a conversation with Gus Butler, record collector, teacher and author of the article "Buzzsaw: An oral history of the HM-2 pedal" on Cvlt Nation. The HM-2 has become shorthand for a specific subgenre of extreme metal and refers to the edgy guitar tone the pedal creates.

Keith and Gus discuss the pedal's role in extreme metal (past and present) and the boutique-made clones available today, as well as record collecting and a few other topics as well.

Here is a link to the article:
