    Miles Davis Pt. 2: Mountains of Pills, Bitches Brew, and the Reinvention of the Original Motherf#%*er

    Miles Davis Pt. 2: Mountains of Pills, Bitches Brew, and the Reinvention of the Original Motherf#%*er

    When it came to music, Miles Davis wasn’t about no safe, tired yesterday bullsh*t. After kicking his heroin addiction, he traded bespoke suits for fringe jackets and spearheaded an experimental blur of jazz and rock, eclipsing his contemporaries with a complete reinvention of himself. But the second act of Miles’ life came fraught with failures and new fixes, including a wrecked Lambo, two broken legs, and a mountain of coke and pills so massive that Miles almost never made it down the other side.

    This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of domestic violence.

    Introducing BADLANDS Season 4: HOLLYWOODLAND

    Introducing the true crime podcast Badlands— a show that dives deep into the real stories of the famous at their most infamous.

    Each season, host Jake Brennan, explores the real life crimes and scandalous careers of the world’s most popular cultural figures. In an all new season, he tells the stories of A-listers whose misdeeds and career lows are as unbelievable as some of their films’ plot twists—like the story of Sharon Tate, who was caught up in a strange scene long before members of the Manson family came along. Or the story of how Judy Garland’s lifelong addiction to pills sent her over the rainbow much too soon. And the story about how Winona Ryder was connected to a child kidnapping case in her hometown. These and many more.

    For all that and more, listen to Badlands. Get new episodes every Wednesday wherever you get your podcasts, or binge all of season four right now only on Amazon Music.

    Miles Davis Pt. 1: Blasting Bebop, Blasting Racism, and a Devastating Heroin Habit

    Miles Davis Pt. 1: Blasting Bebop, Blasting Racism, and a Devastating Heroin Habit

    Miles Davis is jazz’s first and only rock star, with the rap sheet to prove it. He did enough cocaine to run down the entirety of 52nd street, and pimped out women when performing wasn’t paying the bills. At one point, his heroin habit was so public that clubs who had once welcomed his brilliant bebop instead froze him out completely. When he wasn’t vying to keep his rightful spot in jazz’s upper echelon, he was doing time at Rikers Island or dodging racist cops on the prowl for any junkie they could find. Miles Davis invented cool, but nearly destroyed himself in the process.

    This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of domestic violence.

    This is Part One of a two-part Disgraceland Episode on Miles Davis. To hear all episodes of Disgraceland for free, visit amazon.com/disgraceland. Show notes are available at disgracelandpod.com.

Are you a music geek?

I've been a music geek for years. I love, not only the music but the mythology and stories behind these bands too. The album artwork, fashion,subcultures, lyrics and of course, the general debauchery and madness that seems to lie at the heart of all great music.

And Disgraceland captures that feeling perfectly. The writing and production values are top notch but it's Jake Brennan's masterful delivery that makes this podcast stand head and shoulders above all others.

So if you are a music geek, I urge you to subscribe and listen to Disgraceland, you will not be disappointed.

40% story: 60% sophomoric prose

Cut the cheese

Used to be good.

This podcast started out well telling good stories, then unfortunatley the presenter started indulging himself in these painfully overwritten sections “morrison felt that he had become a vortex of creativity with him in the middle and the beatniks swirling around him in a miasma of sixties soup” horsecrap like this. Why couldnt he just stick with the facts and let the lives of these people speak for themselves instead of waffling on and on. No basis in real fact to any of the waffle and if its supposed to convey atmosphere then it fails miserably in this.
