Episodes

S1E31 – The New York Dolls – “Too Much Too Soon” w/Mark Dubin

10/25/2018
More
Live at The Laser Wolf, three boys who were dragged by the ear by their moms into the husky section at Sears back in the 70s to buy clothes to get beat up in school in – (whew) – take a few swings at Too Much Too Soon, the second and final album by The New York Dolls’ original lineup. Mark Dubin cries a couple of times, and an infamous racist Florida restaurant gets dredged up from the tarpit of history. (A very enjoyable episode.)

S1E30 – The Clash “THE CLASH (US Edition)” – w/Joey Maya

10/18/2018
More
Another piecemeal masterpiece, as Joe and Co.'s original 1977 UK debut gets sliced and diced with added spice, and Battalion of Saints and Reactions drummer Joey Maya plugs his new book of lurid tales. We're not really worthy to talk about this album, but true to form, we suit up and drive around the track in the TRGMH clown car.

S1E29 – The Rolling Stones – “Tattoo You” with Steve Grothmann

10/11/2018
More
A Stones album of tarted-up outtakes from the previous decade gets the once over with the sharpened sticks by Rob, Barry and guest Steve Grothmann, who escaped from Tampa with only the cassette player on his back and a song in his underpants. Turns out it's a pretty great record, and better than ones they probably worked harder on.

S1E28 – My Dad Is Dead – “A Divided House” with Rat Bastard

10/3/2018
More
The inimitable and suave Frank Falestra, aka Rat Bastard, condo board president and retired Airline President, joins Rob and Barry to discuss the recorded works of Mark Edwards under the band name My Dad Is Dead. His 2005 release A Divided House is what Rat wanted to focus on, and we manage to focus, a little, in between phone calls and ribald stories. Apologies to Mark Edwards for another round of armchair psychoanalysis by the TRGMH peanut gallery. This one was, indeed, a lot of fun.

S1E27 – Frank Zappa – “Apostrophe” – LIVE at The Laser Wolf with Jesse Small from Milk Spot

9/28/2018
More
Rob, Barry and Jesse Small from Milk Spot gnaw like poodles on the second of Frank Zappa's post-head injury discs, the Eskimo-infested and Cosmik Debris-buffeted “Apostrophe”, all while drinking the fine concoctions (well, Rob and Barry anyway) poot forth by The Laser Wolf. Frank survives unscathed, despite having died 25 years ago, and still continuing to influence young bon vivants like Jesse.

S1E26 – Felt – “The Strange Idols Pattern And Other Short Stories” w/Holly Tavel

9/21/2018
More
Holly Tavel calls in on a rotary phone from a distant galaxy to discuss the mysterious Lawrence and his band Felt. We try and keep up with L and his compatriot Maurice Deebank through the course of their third album, although it is admitted that our chisels don't make much of an impact on the edifice, impressive and vexing though it is. The haunting daylight mystery remains unscathed.

S1E25 – Guided By Voices – “Propeller” w/Derek Hyde

9/13/2018
More
Rob and guest Derek Hyde take turns piloting the river boat up the Great Miami River to Dayton, Ohio, home of the prolific, erratic genius Robert Pollard. The cargo is Guided By Voices' 1992 album Propellor, the album which PROPELLED them into great acclaim and a career in the wider spaces. Barry is allowed to look at the scenery but is sent below deck like Lurch in The Addams Family when he makes comparisons with another 1992 musical act. Rob and Derek come ashore, erect their temple, set...

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. http://thatrecordgotmehigh.com

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 http://thatrecordgotmehigh.com

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.

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.

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/ http://ThatRecordGotMeHigh.com

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/ http://ThatRecordGotMeHigh.com

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 http://ThatRecordGotMeHigh.com
