    Phil Collins & Genesis 1980-2010

    Phil Collins & Genesis 1980-2010

    The follow-up to the TWOS "Genesis in the '70s" episode has finally arrived. It's time to Spa-go for it, strap on a headband, a pastel blazer, and parachute pants and enjoy Phil and the boys' journey to peak stardom. Dave and Lex discuss Phil's "cultural ubiquity," the evolution of the Genesis sound, and whether "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" is genius or drivel. This is a fun one, and yet another epic-sode, clocking in at 2-1/2 hours long.

    Genesis 1967-1980

    Genesis 1967-1980

    It's been a long wait, but Dave and Lex are back with Part 1 of the Genesis saga. Before neon palm trees and Spago lunches were on their radar, these legends of 1980s pop found their footing during the early days of prog rock with songs of knights, dukes, deadly croquet games, foxes in red dresses, and castrated slippermen. Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Steve Hackett, and more harmonize, clash, and synth their British hearts out across the '70s. Plus, Dave and Lex are finally converted into full-blown prog-heads. You won't want to miss this deluxe epic-sode.

    Alice Cooper

    Alice Cooper

    Dave and Lex celebrate Halloween by going down the rabbithole with Alice -- both the man, the band, and the monster. The path is twisty, from psychedelic LA to protopunk Detroit to the gated estates of Greenwich, a padded cell in New York, and every golf course in between. As the music morphs, Alice Cooper (aka Vincent Furnier) gives Kevin Bacon and his six degrees a run for their money, downing beers and rubbing elbows with just about everyone in pop culture history from 1965 to today. Welcome to his nightmare... we think you're gonna like it.

    Kate Bush

    Kate Bush

    After a (too) long hiatus, Dave and Lex are back with a Kubrick-length immersion into the career of Kate Bush. (Thanks for sticking in there and sorry for the wait!) Kate exploded onto the British pop scene in '77 with a bizarre single and a thrilling presence. With every successive album, she broke new ground, influenced artists across genres, and achieved cult status. From bedroom dancing to full-scale filmmaking, Kate Bush forged a career like no other. All there is to say is wowowowowowow... UNBELIEVABLE.

Mr. Duncan Disorderly ,

Best Music Pod on The Planet

Love this show. Great chemistry with the hosts and they always present a fantastically well-researched episode. One of my essential pods!

hlkneedler ,

Best deep dive I’ve ever heard.

I am not at all surprised that thousands of people are digging on this groove. Both of the hosts’ energies are infectious, the editing and mixing is gold standard, the level of research is insane. All of it is so so good. I can’t stop thinking about that Kate Bush episode. The 2 part Genesis show is incredible.

So ‘Well’ done

This has become my favorite podcast. Zero hemming and hawing , the blending of actual interviews and music is beyond anything I’ve yet heard . Bravo , Bravo , Bravo!!
