V&V Episode 105 Steve Moore(Zombi) & Goblin's Their Hits, Rare Tracks and Outtakes
Each episode has it's challenges in researching the chosen album by the guest. Some are not so hard. Maybe even easy. Others make you wish you were dead. That's not saying that this is a horrible album. It's not. It's a great album by a great band. A mythical group that I think is fairly obscure. Obviously there are a great number of people that know and love Goblin, but even with that being said, how many of those people truly know much about this band? Well, my guest today does. Steve Moore, best known for his band Zombi, not only loves this band and found them to be integral to his own career, but he knows these guys and has toured with them briefly! And one of the most interesting parts is that, if it weren't for this album, he may have never even started Zombi, let alone scoring films. A true pinnacle of inspiration and something that we strive for here on this show. And if you aren't familiar with any of Steve's work(and there is a TON of it) you can follow this link to his latest release which is a collaboration with Overcalc. https://sleepinggiantglossolalia.bandcamp.com/album/steve-moore-overcalc-calyx and when you're done with that, you can explore the rest of his catalog here: https://stevemoore2600.bandcamp.com If you'd like to find out more about us and how to support the show, please visit our website at www.psychicstatic.net.

V&V Episode 097 Vashti Bunyan & Lambchop's OH(Ohio)
I am honored to bring to you today, my conversation with Vashti Bunyan. Who is Vashti, you may ask. Well, she has a book out now, with a paperback release coming this fall, called Wayward: Just Another Life to Live. So, if you'd like to know all the details, I implore you to buy it here: https://a.co/d/9XW5tuI I'm not trying to support Amazon, I just can't find the publisher's direct website. In a nutshell, Vashti became disheartened by the record industry, decided to quit music and follow Donovan(Yes, that Donovan!) out to a newly acquired land of his in Scotland with her partner at the time by a horse drawn wagon from London. The journey took a year and a half. And all of that lead to the writing of what would become her now seminal and sought after debut album, Just Another Diamond Day. On today's show, she summarizes that journey even better, while discussing with me an album that wasn't necessarily an influence on her music writing, but certainly an album she loves. There are some connections that are made, but this is a little bit of a different conversation. If you're not familiar with her music, you really ought to listen to some of it. Here is a link to a couple of music streaming sites. https://open.spotify.com/artist/4chuPfKtATDZvbRLExsTp2?si=gw8EHzihRN-WFySkIyHP3Q https://music.apple.com/us/artist/vashti-bunyan/23956529 This was a great conversation, and if you like it too please share with a friend, and please rate or review.
