Six years after their last record, Paramore is back with new music, and their upcoming record seems to have an uncanny connection to the era of new wave. But what is “new wave” anyway? Is it just a period of time in music or something more?  In this episode of Switched on Pop, we explore some of the tracks from This is Why, out February 10th, and connect them to the works of everyone from Talking Heads to Joy Division.

Ever since I read White Noise, the 1985 National Book Award winner written by Don DeLillo, I've been expecting some Hollywood movie director would recognize its brilliance and bring it to the Silver Screen in some limited fashion. Finally, it happened, aided by the COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown, thanks to movie director Noah Baumbach and his wife, actress Greta Gerwig. Here is my take on the resulting product, which I liken to the Talking Heads meets Don DeLillo.Novelist Spotlight is produced and hosted by Mike Consol, author of “Family Recipes: A Novel About Italian Culture, Catholic Guilt and the Culinary Crime of the Century,” “Hardwood: A Novel About College Basketball and Other Games Young Men Play,” and two yet-to-be-published manuscripts, “Lolita Firestone: A Supernatural Novel,” and the short story collection “Love American Style.” Write to him at novelistspotlight@gmail.com.

However, we are exploring the true background of all these big pop hit makers; when they were PUNK! Whether you like this style of music or not, this is a fun exploration of the seedy underground beginning of some of the biggest 80s pop stars. This episode features songs with short track lengths and lots of, “No way! I can't believe that's ____”! It's PUNK ROCK people! It's fun and filthy and is where Kevin started down his path of music fanaticism. These songs are all firmly in the category of “Forgotten”. We hope we introduce to some tunes you may not have heard from these big New Wave hit makers.Songs this week include:Neon – “Information Of Death” from Obsessions EP (1982)The Cure – “I Dig You” from I'm A Cult Hero (1979)Beastie Boys – “Ode To…” from Polly Wog Stew EP (1982)Joy Division – “Warsaw” from Substance 1977-1980 (1978)The Go-Go's - “Party Pose” from Return To The Valley Of The Go-Go's (1979)Generation X – “Ready Steady Go” from Generation X (1978)Bananarama – “No Feelings (Sex Pistols)” from Party Party – The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1983)Please subscribe everywhere that you listen to podcasts!Visit us: https://inobscuria.com/https://www.facebook.com/InObscuriahttps://twitter.com/inobscuriahttps://www.instagram.com/inobscuria/Buy cool stuff with our logo on it!: https://www.redbubble.com/people/InObscuria?asc=uCheck out Robert's amazing fire sculptures and metal workings here: http://flamewerx.com/If you'd like to check out Kevin's band THE SWEAR, take a listen on all streaming services or pick up a digital copy of their latest release here: https://theswear.bandcamp.com/If you want to hear Robert and Kevin's band from the late 90s – early 00s BIG JACK PNEUMATIC, check it out here: https://bigjackpnuematic.bandcamp.com/

On this week's show, we... kick off 2023 by celebrating our 100th podcast!  tell one of my favorite stories  look forward to the next hundred episodes All this & much, much less! Welcome to our first ever Debts Storytime! I've actually told this story once or twice when we were a mere mortal radio show. It's a true story I've told countless times IRL over the years. A few years back, I told the story during a presentation at work. You can still watch the video on YouTube, but the sound quality is not great. Preparing to tell that story in front of a crowd inspired me to rethink how I tell it. I like to think the added context makes the story breathe, and that it could easily fit in amongst the many stories I've enjoyed over the years on The Moth or This American Life. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed telling it. Here's to the next hundred episodes! Debts No Honest Man Can Pay is over 2 rock-solid hours of musical eclectica & other noodle stories.

La Philharmonie de Paris et le Musée de la musique rendent hommage à Fela Anikulapo Kuti, figure du «Black President» et créateur de l'Afrobeat avec l'exposition Rébellion Afrobeat #Nigeria. En amont de Rébellion Afrobeat, l'exposition qui démarre le 20 octobre 2022, la Philharmonie s'est mise à l'heure de l'Afrobeat, avec une 1ère soirée samedi 8 octobre 2022 intitulée «Lagos Meets London» avec Femi Kuti, Made Kuti et des invités comme Kokoroko, Obongjayar et Asa. Et c'est à l'occasion de ses concerts que nous avons rencontré la famille Kuti et avons organisé une interview croisée père-fils entre Femi et Madé. Fils aîné de Fela, Femi Kuti a repris le flambeau de son père et, ayant formé son propre groupe (Positive Force) durant les années 1980, transmet à son tour une musique hautement énergétique à forte teneur politique, dans le prolongement naturel de l'afrobeat originel. Il convie pour l'occasion la chanteuse franco-nigériane Asa, auteure de cinq albums solo. Femi Kuti Feat. Asa sur Arte. Fils de Femi, s'étant aguerri comme musicien au sein de Positive Force, Made Kuti a publié en 2021 son premier album, For(e)ward, qui révèle un univers très personnel, nourri de l'héritage familial pour mieux s'en affranchir. Pour ce concert, Made fait appel à l'une des plus belles révélations de la scène anglo-nigériane actuelle : Obongjayar. Pour ouvrir la soirée, rendez-vous avec l'octet londonien Kokoroko qui poursuit son ascension fulgurante avec son mélange irrésistible de jazz et d'afrobeat. Madé Kuti Feat. Obongjayar sur Arte. Note d'intention des concerts du 8 au 16 octobre 2022. L'héritage de Fela Kuti est d'abord celui porté par ses enfants : Femi Kuti, l'aîné, est aux côtés de son propre fils, Made, pour la soirée Lagos Meets London, au contact de la bouillonnante scène jazz et hip-hop anglaise. Seun Kuti a, lui, pris la tête du mythique groupe Egypt 80. Tony Allen fut non seulement le génial batteur de Fela, mais aussi son directeur artistique. Une pléiade de musiciens, parmi lesquels Oumou Sangaré, Sébastien Tellier ou Cheick Tidiane Seck, s'en acquittera avec l'énergie et la générosité du maître. Et parce que tout est histoire d'allers-retours et de passages de témoins, Angélique Kidjo revisitera le Remain in Light des Talking Heads. Notre programmation propose également une pièce de Qudus Onikeku, plongée dans le Lagos d'aujourd'hui, où dix jeunes danseurs se réapproprient l'énergie de l'afrobeat. Mais l'héritage de Fela, c'est aussi une pensée politique, qui a inspiré au chorégraphe burkinabè Serge Aimé Coulibaly, la pièce Kalakuta Republik. L'exposition Trompettiste, saxophoniste, chanteur, pianiste et compositeur, le musicien nigérian Fela Kuti est aussi un penseur du panafricanisme et un activiste. L'afrobeat – le style qu'il invente mêlant rythmes yoruba, jazz, soul et funk – est une musique permettant à la fois de danser et de penser. Dans ses chansons, comme lors de ses prises de parole publiques, il dénonce sans relâche les injustices, la corruption des élites et le néocolonialisme : des combats qui n'ont rien perdu de leur actualité. Celui qui se fait appeler le «Black President» est aussi un travailleur acharné sortant jusqu'à douze albums par an et enchaînant les tournées à travers le monde tout en restant fidèle à l'Afrika Shrine, le club qu'il a créé à Lagos. Il nous laisse une œuvre majeure qui influence des générations de musiciens de tous bords, de la scène jazz au hip-hop.  Après l'interview croisée père-fils entre Femi et Madé, Sodi Marciszewer se souvient de sa 1ère fois avec Fela. Réalisateur artistique, ingénieur du son et mixeur, Sodi a œuvré avec 3 générations de Kuti. Il a collaboré aux 6 derniers albums de Fela, produit la plupart des albums de Femi et le 1er album de Madé. Il est le fondateur du studio Zarma, réputé pour l'utilisation d'équipement audio vintage (Fela Rébellion Afrobeat chez Textuel). Nous nous sommes ensuite rendus chez Jean-Jacques Mandel, journaliste, photographe, collectionner d'art. Il est le premier journaliste à avoir interviewé Fela au Shrine en 1975. 1è de ses photos sont dans l'exposition.   La République de Kalakuta vue par Jean-Jacques Mandel En 1975, Jean-Jacques Mandel, jeune diplômé en ethnologie, décide de créer une association pour permettre aux Français de se rendre à moindres frais au Festac, initialement programmé cette année-là. Sur les conseils d'un ami qui lui signale l'existence d'un musicien extraordinaire à Lagos, Jean-Jacques Mandel se décide à entreprendre le voyage en voiture, en traversant le Sahara, comme l'avait fait le batteur britannique Ginger Baker quelques années auparavant. Parvenu dans la capitale nigériane au terme de plusieurs milliers de kilomètres éprouvants, il se rend, de nuit, au Shrine. À la fin du concert, tard dans la soirée, Fela, intrigué par sa présence, envoie l'un de ses musiciens le chercher pour le rencontrer. À la fin de l'entrevue, il lui propose de venir l'interviewer le lendemain à la République de Kalakuta. Jean-Jacques Mandel est le premier Français à photographier le musicien. Il retournera à Lagos deux ans plus tard pour une nouvelle série de photographies et une interview publiée à son retour dans la magazine Rock&Folk. Son portrait de Fela au saxophone, devant les grillages qui maintiennent la foule des admirateurs à distance, deviendra iconique après avoir orné la pochette du double vinyle Fela Ransome-Kuti édité par Pathé en 1977, puis en 1981 celle du disque Black President sur le label Arista, dans une déclinaison noire et jaune (Extrait du livre de l'exposition : Fela Rébellion Afrobeat chez Textuel).

His collaboration with Kate created a synergy of ideas that ended up on this iconic album. Exclusive stories are heard on this podcast, where we get an expanded view of how these almost operatic tracks were produced, including more details of the title track. As an added bonus, we also get to hear how 'Lord Of The Reedy River' (b-side to the first single 'Sat In Your Lap') was recorded next to a dank pool under the studio floorboards.

Thirty-five years ago, writer/director Oliver Stone released the follow-up to his searing Vietnam War drama Platoon which came out the previous year winning Best Picture among several other Oscars.....and this time, his focus was on stock brokers? :o Of course his late father had been a stock broker so this was a very personal subject for Stone and he even brought back the star from his previous film to star in this one....Charlie Sheen.  Sheen plays our main protagonist Bud Fox who's an aspiring young stock broker who idolizes one of the most exciting new titans of investment banking, Gordon Gekko who is played by Michael Douglas.  One day, he ingratiates himself into Gekko's world and ends up trading for him.....and what results is one of the most quoted and often imitated adult drama/thrillers of the 1980's.  Much of what makes it so iconic is the lead performance by Douglas who would win Best Actor at the Oscars.  It also stars Martin Sheen, Darryl Hannah, John C.

The movie stars the legendary actress Michelle Yeoh, and was directed by the Daniels, the directing duo of Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The score for the film is by the band Son Lux. In addition to the score, Son Lux also made the original song for the film's end credits: "This is a Life," featuring two prestigious guest vocalists: Mitski and David Byrne of the Talking Heads. For this episode, I spoke to Ryan Lott from Son Lux, as well as the Daniels. Ryan tells the story of how the song was created, with his bandmates and Mitski and David Byrne and Daniels all adding to it and shaping it. For more, visit songexploder.net/son-lux.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Night Tales over Zoom video!The Night Tales project has been nearly a decade in the making. One half of the duo, Aaron Bannie was born in the U.K. before moving to Ibiza, where he learned how to mix and play on vinyl. He would later relocate to Australia in hopes to elevate his own electronic project, Third Floor. Kamaliza Salamba is an Aussie native, and also had his own career in music prior to Night Tales. He played in various bands, in addition to his own R&B electronic project, Kamaliza.The two connected via a booking agent, and immediately began collaborating on a house-infused, singer-songwriter project. Influenced by acts like the Talking Heads, the two dove into more thematic compositions that cover a wide range of music. Salamba writes the vocals and melodies, while Bannie provides his own vocals in addition to running drum and trigger pads. While Night Tales offer the storytelling and lyrics for widespread accessibility, their roots in electronica provide credence to their ability to connect with both mainstream and festival audiences.In 2018, the duo struck a 3-single deal with the German label, Majestic Casual. The label has provided a home for innovative acts like Edamame and Two Feet, so it made for a perfect fit for an enigmatic act like Night Tales.Following the deal, the two went to the studio and wrote a series of singles, including ”Friends.” This first series put on display the representation of human emotion and personal relationships. “Friends” would go on to rack up 5.7 million Spotify streams globally, with one of its top markets being the United States.. This lifelong benchmark for success and key to traveling to America came right as the pandemic swiftly took over the globe.Stuck inside their home studio during the pandemic, the two reacted by doubling down on their creativity by committing to monthly single releases. They found a massive organic following during the pandemic - wracking up 730k+ monthly listeners and millions of streams on hits like ‘Friends' (8.7m+) and ‘Move You' (2.8m).Night Tales' mission is to pioneer urban culture in the alternative electronic music scene. Their hope is to diversify and represent people of color in electronic music - championing acceptance and accessibility.Night Tales has seen a 60% increase in listenership in September -- increasing from 620k to 729k monthly listeners behind an average of 10k new listeners daily. These metrics make Night Tales among the fast growing artists in the United States right now. This coincides with the recent nationwide Proof tour announcement -- their debut album Proof is out now.We want to hear from you!

A man you probably know as the guitarist and founding member of The Smiths. The Smiths, however, are only a small part of the story.

Well, what do you have?' She said, 'I'm doing a piece next week at Brooklyn Academy of Music with Trisha Brown and Robert Rauschenberg, Set and Reset. Why don't you come?

Born in the small Louisiana town of Cecilia in 1938, he began making pilgrimages to the city while still in his teens in search of the city's most cutting edge gestures in jazz, and relaxed there not long after, falling in with a close knit community of artists and composers like Keith Sonnier, Philip Glass, Joan Jonas, Gordon Matt Clarke, Richard Serra, Robert Rauschenberg, Nancy Graves, Lawrence Weiner, Steve Reich, Jon Gibson, and Robert Wilson.Landry remains one of the few artists of his generation who made important waves within numerous creative idioms. Having been trained from a young age on saxophone, not only is he a remarkably respected solo performer and bandleader, but he was an early and long-standing member of Philip Glass' ensemble, playing on seminal records like Music With Changing Parts, Music in Similar Motion / Music in Fifths, Music in Twelve Parts, North Star, and Einstein on the Beach, and played with Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, and jazz giants like Johnny Hammond, Gene Ammons, and Les McCann.

This was the gift that France would give for America's two-hundredth anniversary. That was the first time I met Robert Wilson.""My son had died, and I had taken to two years to recover. So I went to New York. I had dinner with Laurie Anderson, and as I was getting up to leave, she said, 'What are you doing in New York?' I said, "I'm looking for work' She said, 'What are you doing next week?' I said, 'Well, I'm supposed to be in Atlanta, Georgia doing a music film with David Byrne and Talking Heads. Well, what do you have?' She said, 'I'm doing a piece next week at Brooklyn Academy of Music with Trisha Brown and Robert Rauschenberg, Set and Reset. Why don't you come? Bring your sax, we'll work it out then.' Two weeks after that concert, Laurie's manager called and said, 'Do you want to go on a 20-city tour of America with Laurie? Home of the Brave?' Of course, we did that. That was the beginning of the reconstruction of my career in New York through Laurie Anderson."For nearly half a century, Richard “Dickie” Landry was at the center of the New York avant-garde. Born in the small Louisiana town of Cecilia in 1938, he began making pilgrimages to the city while still in his teens in search of the city's most cutting edge gestures in jazz, and relaxed there not long after, falling in with a close knit community of artists and composers like Keith Sonnier, Philip Glass, Joan Jonas, Gordon Matt Clarke, Richard Serra, Robert Rauschenberg, Nancy Graves, Lawrence Weiner, Steve Reich, Jon Gibson, and Robert Wilson.Landry remains one of the few artists of his generation who made important waves within numerous creative idioms. Having been trained from a young age on saxophone, not only is he a remarkably respected solo performer and bandleader, but he was an early and long-standing member of Philip Glass' ensemble, playing on seminal records like Music With Changing Parts, Music in Similar Motion / Music in Fifths, Music in Twelve Parts, North Star, and Einstein on the Beach, and played with Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, and jazz giants like Johnny Hammond, Gene Ammons, and Les McCann. He was also one of the most important photographic documenters of the New York Scene, until he left the city for his native Louisiana, following 9/11.http://www.dickielandry.comhttps://unseenworlds.com/collections/dickie-landryMusic on this episode courtesy of Dickie Landry:E-mu & Alto Saxophone composed by D.L. for Robert Wilson's production of "1433 The Grand Voyage" based on the story of Zheng He.
