On this Six-Pack episode, Matt Porter from The KISS Room and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to ride the winds of victory into Valhalla and discuss the music and Conan-like pageantry of Manowar. From loin clothes to tales of Thor and battles and triumphs, Manowar is certainly a unique band. Their musicianship is aggressive, smart, and solidly beyond reproach, their image and lyrical content is definitely testosterone-laden and fantasy based. Should they be winking with some of their songs a la Spinal Tap? Is it all kayfabe?? What do they think of the “metal” posers of their day?!? We discuss all of this and much more. But moreover, we play six fun and fist-pumping songs from this pioneering band in the power-metal, fantasy-metal genre!
So grab your broadsword, let the arrows fly, and ride with us into glory as we have some fun with a Six-Pack of Manowar!
On this Six-Pack episode, Matt Porter from The KISS Room and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll podcast join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to take a look at the work and career of Britny Fox. We’re breaking all the rules, spraying up our hair, throwing on some velvet overcoats, some purple spandex, throwing some spin-kicks, and digging into the late 80s metal scene of Philly. Matt shares memories of the early days seeming them live and some info about what Dean is up to these days, we get into the lineup changes, we get into the obvious Cinderella comparisons, and we definitely get into some of their classic work – hard pop-rock at it’s finest. Matt even shares a very rare track from a cassette in his personal collection as his final pick – worth hanging around for!
So hitch upon a star, dream on, bite down hard, and join us as we have some fun with a Six-Pack of Britny Fox!
On this Six-Pack episode, Mr Matt Porter of The KISS Room and Sonny “Hollywood” Pooni of Growin’ Up Rock join Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to assemble a six pack of Y&T gems. We each bring two of our favorite Y&T songs covering their full discography – some hits, some obscure tracks, and some deep cuts. We also share some personal memories of how we got into the band, how their fanbase is super loyal but not as expansive as we’d hope, their heights on MTV and in the 80s, recent performances, and tons more. In fact, at least 16 tons more! So sit back and enjoy a few friends enjoying a tight little playlist of Y&T classics.
