Mike’s recommendation – Korg monotron delay An affordable way to start to play with analog music.  You get an amazing amount of capabilities from a device not much larger than a smart phone.  Also much safer than Mike’s water-based keyboard.

Squat Cobbler 30: Alice Cooper – Zipper Catches Skin (review)

http://media.blubrry.com/nurtureandsupport/p/www.nurtureandsupport.net/ns/SC30.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Play | RSSIf I aint cool my daddy’s gonna send me to military school…   This week Mike and Kelly discuss Alice Cooper’s 14th album, “Zipper Catches Skin”.  Twitchy, strange, different than any Alice we have heard so far – this is a flawed, but enjoyable album. The album features Zorro, Scrooge, dead pets returning to save their master and an “On Golden Pond” reference.  So, you probably get the idea this is a tad different than other outings by Mr. Cooper. Mike VASTLY under-rated … Continue reading

Strong throughout… highlights include The Rhythm of the Heat and Biko (of course). Mike’s Recommendation – Riverdale A joint venture between the CW and Netflix, Riverdale is basically the classic Archie comic crew, with a hint of the … Continue reading

A Saul and Battery UPDATE

Loyal “A Saul and Battery” listeners will know Kelly has been promising a graphic to document the likelihood of survival for the super awesome Kim (and then we added the earnest Pollos employee Lyle as well). Here it is.  100 = certain death, 0 = alive and living large.  Mike and Kelly both make estimates each show. And a reminder… Mike and I will be talking about the latest episode of Better Call Saul “Expenses” LIVE at 9pm-ish Central time here:

That said, check out You’re a Movie, Skeletons In My Closet, and Who Do You Think We Are… fun songs! There was a tour to support this album (which Kelly saw) and here is pretty complete documentation of it in glorious … Continue reading

Audio is a little rough on this one gang.  There were a lot of Google Hangout issues and Mike ended up doing the show from his phone.  Sorry about that.  Way to phone it in Mike. Here is the Pink Lady and Jeff appearance Kelly mentioned … Continue reading
