Squat Cobbler 67: Billion Dollar Babies – Battle Axe (album review)

“It’s bigger than King Kong”

Thanks to a suggestion from our listener Mick, this week Mike and Kelly discuss Battle Axe by Billion Dollar Babies.  When the original Alice Cooper group went there separate ways, three members of the band formed Billion Dollar Babies.  The concept for Battle Axe was to be the follow up for the the original group’s final collaboration, “Muscle of Love“.

While there are some moments, listening to this album (and Alice’s “Goes to Hell” and “Lace and Whiskey” outings that were also released around this time) point out how amazing the original group’s mixture of talent was.

It was a tough go for Billion Dollar Babies and there is little on the Internet about them.  Here is one of the best histories on the band and a few (rare) pics

Also, Kelly mentioned the somewhat shady live album of Battle Axe…

 

Squat Cobbler 66: Alice Cooper – A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris (review)

I’m the bump on your head as you step on the rake

At “breakneck speed” Mike and Kelly review the latest Alice Cooper release, the live album “A Paranormal Evening at the Olympia Paris”.  Outside of song discussion you’ll learn of Kelly’s deep love for the French and the usual uncomfortable reveal of Mike’s inner passions.

In the review, Mike mentioned the cover might be a bit similar to the newest Prince release.  You be the judge…

Also, as promised, Zorro’s Ascent (sadly, not on this album)

 

Squat Cobbler 65: Captain Beefheart – Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) (review)

The little girl that named you years ago died now

This week Mike and Kelly review Kelly’s favorite Captain Beefheart album “Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)”.  This album has all the things that make Beefheart truly unique, while somehow also being probably his most accessible work.

Here is the Price song that Mike said was reminiscent of “Bat Chain Puller”,  you be the judge…

Plus for your listening pleasure, the most awesome “Owed T’ Alex”

 

Squat Cobbler 64: Psychotica – Psychotica (review)

In space, no one’s ever there to hear you cry

Mike and Kelly review Mike’s favorite album by his favorite ban, the self-titled Psychotica.  Great lyrics, great music and a wide variety of song and vocal styles.  Plus you get the amazing Reeka adding in her unique vocals on a number of tracks.

In case you missed it since Mike and Kelly only mentioned it about 30 time in this podcast, Psychotica is heavily featured in one of their other projects (it might have been mentioned that this was #1 on Amazon for a bit)

Squat Cobbler 62: Voltaire- The Devil’s Bris (review)

“Your tears are all the pay I need”

This week Mike and Kelly review Voltaire’s album “The Devil’s Bris“.  Mike has quite a bit of backstory on this selection.  It was completely new to Kelly.  Spoiler: he loved it.

Plus murder.

As usual, Mike SAID he would do it, but it was up to Kelly to find the Sloop John B/Star Trek/Voltaire song…

Squat Cobbler 61: Kinks – Misfits (review)

“Out of work executives are killing themselves, and the IRA is killing everyone else”

This week Mike and Kelly review the album Misfits by the Kinks. Outside of song discussions, there is a heavy dose of lava, plumbing, and dresses.  Worth the ride.

Had to do it… here is “Black Messiah” in all its glory…
