New MGP Podcast – Vintage Vinyl Vivisection
Vintage Vinyl Vivisection (or, V3 for short) takes you under the skin and straight to the meat of classic heavy metal and hard rock albums. No out-of-touch hipster nonsense or irrelevant political banter here. Just straight talk on records we all know and (mostly) love, brought to you by those who know what they’re actually talking about. Genre-related tangents will also occur.
Joining us in studio for the inaugural episode is Mr. John Shaw (www.isatanist.com) as he and Matt talk about the third studio album from Def Leppard — Pyromania. Discussion includes album charting, the making of the album, replacing a guitar player, the cover art, and the three standout tracks, as well as Pyromania’s wide appeal and more. But, since it’s never just about the album, you’ll also gain insight on Matt’s fledgling video editing efforts, how metal gets you all the girls, who started the rise of pop metal, “doing it” songs, selling out, John’s Def Lep triangle theory, totally weird ‘80s music videos, and modern kids who need to not be boring.
