Non-Human Music, Part 1: Animal Bands (Episode 97)


What happens when bands relinquish some control of their aesthetic sound to orangutans and toasters or dugongs and doomsday devices?

How much of this is simply a gimmick and how much is a sincere exploration of music outside the influence of mankind?

episode 94: Ringo Tribute Songs (Episode 93)


From 1963 to 1967 hundreds of songs about the Beatles, but not by the Beatles, were issued by no-name artists on tiny fly-by-night labels.
