Well Disguised

Well Disguised aspires to be a thinking person's podcast about rock music, specifically the rock considered lowbrow by those who are "better." It's for those who believe Jimmy Page is the true King of Rock and Roll and who laughed when David Lee Roth said "rock critics like Elvis Costello because rock critics look like Elvis Costello." If you have grown up, but don't have loud guitar out of your system, then you are of our kind. read less

Mississippi Bones--My New Favorite Band
Aug 24 2021
Mississippi Bones--My New Favorite Band
I won't claim this is a "deep dive" or some expert breakdown of what makes Mississippi Bones one of the most fantastic bands I've stumbled across in recent years. And that's because it isn't. This is just Dave and I telling how we did get into the band, the twists and turns as we talked about doing this episode, and just basically geeking out about a group that really scratches that itch. Bands like Mississippi Bones still make me inordinately happy. Look, just about all my favorite rock stars are millionaires and senior citizens too, but bands like this keep me going. Maybe even help keep me young.Lots of show notes here:Mississippi Bones Bandcamp page: https://mississippibones.bandcamp.com/Mississippi Bones merch: https://mississippibones.storenvy.com/productsMississippi Bones Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mississippibonesMuzzleland Press, where Jonathan Raab is editor: https://www.muzzlelandpress.com/Buy "The Hillbilly Moonshine Massacre" here (I really need one of those affiliate deals): https://www.amazon.com/Hillbilly-Moonshine-Massacre-Jonathan-Raab-ebook/dp/B015L4DC1I/ref=pd_sim_1/140-4273967-8404026?pd_rd_w=kfiGx&pf_rd_p=bc5856f7-ca30-40b6-8d37-7814a2494e00&pf_rd_r=K17SAY0CN40AJDAF3QY6&pd_rd_r=259263a5-1da2-44d8-b506-61dcff8ccb31&pd_rd_wg=0Hrtz&pd_rd_i=B015L4DC1I&psc=1The Adventure Zone is a Maximum Fun podcast you can listen to wherever, but check it out here: https://maximumfun.org/podcasts/adventure-zone/?_sort=date_ascNorth by South, the excellent music podcast hosted by Ry (Sabbath Bloody Podcast) and Clay (Skynyrd Reconsydyrd) is here: https://anchor.fm/northbysouthpodThis is all Ry's fault. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/welldisguised/message
Chuck Klosterman Interview: 20 Years of "Fargo Rock City"
May 18 2021
Chuck Klosterman Interview: 20 Years of "Fargo Rock City"
20 years ago this month, Chuck Klosterman released his first book, Fargo Rock City. It was a watershed moment for pop culture. For Chuck personally, it launched his career as he became one of the foremost pop culture critics and thought leaders in the world. For those of us smart and semi-smart types who sometimes wondered why we loved this often juvenile music, it might as well have been a Holy script. It's not a coincidence that the subtitle for his most famous book, "Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto" inspired the subtitle for this podcast. Chuck was gracious enough to speak to me about the impact "Fargo Rock City" had on his career, how he feels about that music today, his interview with Jimmy Page, what it's like to listen to Black Sabbath and Kanye West at basically the same time, and several other topics. I'm ecstatic to release this episode and hope you all enjoy it. Thank you Chuck so much for coming on Well Disguised.You're smart enough to find Fargo Rock City on your own, but here's one way:https://www.amazon.com/Fargo-Rock-City-Odyssey-Dakota/dp/0743406567Also, if you want to read the interview with Jimmy Page we discuss, here's a link:https://www.gq.com/story/jimmy-page-led-zeppelin-men-of-the-year-klostermanOn the show I brought up Chuck's podcast with Chris Ryan.
