S1E21 – Nick Lowe – “Pure Pop for Now People” with Garry Messick

8/16/2018
More
Garry Messick comes aboard the leaky submarine of That Record Got Me High and mans the pump, keeping Rob and Barry from plummeting into the crushing inky depths. We also talk about Nick Lowe's “Jesus Of Cool” via its (actually better) US counterpart, "Pure Pop For Now People.” All they said 'get in', get in. thatrecordgotmehigh.com trgmh33@gmail.com

S1E20 – “Modern Lovers” – with Steve Michener from Big Dipper

8/8/2018
More
Steve Michener phones it in, just like we asked him to, to talk about his favorite album of all time: Modern Lovers by Jonathan Richmond & The Modern Lovers. Rob and Barry drink and interrupt, and offer poorly-sourced opinions and historically inaccurate anecdotes. Steve did great though, and everything he said is 100% true, according to him. thatrecordgotmehigh.com trgmh33@gmail.com

S1E19 – Elton John – “Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy”

8/2/2018
More
Rob picks a childhood favorite and waxes eloquent about the contents thereof. Barry is along for the ride, and provides humorous asides a la W.C. Fields. Email us at trgmh33@gmail.com or visit our website for links and artwork at thatrecordgotmehigh.com

S1E18 – Bikini Kill – “The CD Version of the First Two Records”

7/29/2018
More
Moving into uncharted waters this week with a LIVE broadcast from The Laser Wolf, with guest Chuck Livid, we cover an album that by all rights should have some female representation behind the mic. But that's not what happened, and it seems to have turned out okay. Hit us, or hit us up at trgmh33@gmail.com or at our NEW website, www.thatrecordgotmehigh.com.

S1E17 – Angry Samoans – “Back From Samoa”

7/21/2018
More
When our big-league guest got sidelined by a family emergency, we had to scramble for a suitable subject that we could dissect without a lot of fuss. Back From Samoa to the rescue! Angry Samoans 1982 hardcore punk classic in all it's 17:49 glory. Songs about Hitler's cock, serial killers, you name it, it's an all-purpose romp through the "twisted mind" of Metal Mike and Co.

S1E16 – Mott The Hoople – “All The Young Dudes”

7/13/2018
More
Mott The Hoople are the band hiding around the corner of many other more famous ensembles, having been influential and beloved in the music community more so than in the public eye. Their biggest hit was written for them as a desperation move by David Bowie to keep them together, and it worked. Rob and Barry try not to embarrass themselves for the 16th time, to no avail.

S1E15B – Lou Reed – “New York” (Part 2 of 2)

7/5/2018
More
Barry and Rob get in the car with the late Lewis Allan Reed, “Lou”, and drive up and down the dirty boulevard of NYC in 1989, and visit the street scenes and apartment-dwelling vignettes strikingly captured in song. We decided that there was too much on this album to get right in one episode, so we're splitting it into two. Part two of two. trgmh33@gmail.com

Barry and Rob get in the car with the late Lewis Allan Reed, “Lou”, and drive up and down the dirty boulevard of NYC in 1989, and visit the street scenes and apartment-dwelling vignettes strikingly captured in song. We decided that there was too much on this album to get right in one episode, so we're splitting it into two. Next week: part two. trgmh33@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E14 – PIL (Public Image Limited) – “Metal Box / Second Edition”

6/21/2018
More
The massive and monstrous beast that changed the landscape of popular music – whether you know it or not – “Metal Box” by PIL and its US incarnation “Second Edition” get That Record Got Me High’s attention in Episode 14. Also: Barry’s knowledge of Coleridge gets put to the test and he fails completely, to the shock of no one. Contact us at trgmh33@gmail.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E13 – Pretenders – “Pretenders”

6/14/2018
More
Two dudes who have never been to Akron, Ohio attempt to assess the musical prowess of one Chrissie Hynde and her original Pretenders. It's a sordid saga of Tattooed Love Boys and the baaaaad things they do to girls of age on quaaludes in the early 1970s. Besides the Hell's Angels there are some amazing songs of tenderness. But then, there's some more brutality, too. No teeth were harmed in the making of this podcast. Email us @ trgmh33@gmail.com or catch us on Facebook at...

S1E12 – Camper Van Beethoven – “Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart”

6/6/2018
More
“Bruno” and “Ricky” beat up a perfectly nice record from 1988 to try and get some money to go to the track. Patty Hearst shows up with a gun and a beret and mows them down. Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart by Camper Van Beethoven is rescued by Tania, and Life Is Grand. Hit us up at trgmh33@gmail.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E11 – Dead Kennedys – “Plastic Surgery Disasters”

6/1/2018
More
Hello Jello et Co. from That Record Got Me High Podcast. Rob and Barry and their cantankerous…recording equipment(!) get a load of 1982's Plastic Surgery Disasters by Dead Kennedys. Contrary to what's said in the podcast we did hear back from Alternative Tentacles, but we didn't cross the threshold of necessity, and Jello will be providing commentary elsewhere. Hit us up at trgmh33@gmail.com or at https://www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E10 – Big Country “The Crossing” with guest Woody Compton

5/24/2018
More
The late Stuart Adamson's & Co's heavily Scottish-sounding and -feeling Big Country debut gets abused by three “Florida Man” candidates in our tenth episode. We try and wrap our heads around the elusive and apparently historical lyrical subject matter, while marveling at their innovative musical sound and high level of musicianship.

S1E8 – The Smiths "Strangeways Here We Come" with guest Brian Franklin

5/18/2018
More
The first three-person voyage into the inky blackness of That Record Got Me High commences with Brian Franklin, long-time Smiths fan, songwriter and worthy adversary for the grizzled boneheads Rob and Barry. We light the unreliable engines and streak skyward on a rocket with Morrissey's coiffed visage painted on the nosecone, and Johnny Marr's programs at the helm. Place your bets on whether we crash and burn, and give us your unvarnished feedback at trgmh33@gmail.com or...

S1E9 – Pavement "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain"

5/10/2018
More
Just clever enough? Too clever? What is he talking about? Mark E. Smith as PR Rep? All The Old Dudes (two of them) get on each other's nerves about this week's solid gold piece of ancient history, Pavement's "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain". Tongues are bitten and sidelong glances are exchanged, all in front of a live audience at The Beavis and Butthead War Memorial Auditorium. Grab a beer, the show's about to start.

S1E7 – The Replacements "Tim"

5/3/2018
More
The beloved fuck-ups from Minneapolis, The Replacements, get a full-body rub down and unwanted proctological exam from the TRGMH podcast hosts, one of whom is a big fan. Their major label debut, Tim, is the growth we discovered, and whether it is malignant or benign...you'll just have to listen and see. No actual Replacements were harmed, or even touched during the making of TRGMH. Hit us up or just hit us @ trgmh33@gmail.com or on FB @ facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E6 – Magazine "The Correct Use of Soap"

4/26/2018
More
The two-headed wildebeest that is TRGMH podcasts hosts each grab half of Magazine's classic, underrated, under-heard, Russian literature-influenced "The Correct Use of Soap" and pull hard, revealing the dystopian, Kafka-esque lyrical content within. Devoto and Co's finest hour? Hit us up or just hit us @ trgmh33@gmail.com or on FB @ facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/

S1E5 - Hüsker Dü – "Flip Your Wig"

4/19/2018
More
A somewhat contentious offering from the ambiguously dynamic duo of Rob and Barry, this week the electron microscope aims at Hüsker Dü's fourth album, their last on SST Records. There is no flying fur, per se, but the hosts do have different perspectives on this slab of classic wax and – believe you me – they let you know. www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/ trgmh33@gmail.com

S1E4 – The Dream Syndicate "The Days of Wine and Roses"

4/12/2018
More
This week's submarine voyage plumbs the depths of a somewhat lesser-known gem, the first album by LA's The Dream Syndicate, "The Days of Wine and Roses". It's heavily influenced by The Velvet Underground, an influence they would eschew on their second album, The Medicine Show. www.facebook.com/ThatRecordGotMeHigh/ trgmh33@gmail.com

S1E1 – Radiohead's OK Computer

4/6/2018
More
Our first episode! That Record Got Me High takes on the elephant in the 1997 room, Radiohead's groundbreaking and profoundly influential masterpiece, OK Computer. Rob and Barry go head to head with mixed drinks and opinionated commentary.
