Permanent Record Podcast

Brian and Sarah are your hosts for this look back at albums from the New Wave and Classic Rock genres-- albums which have earned a permanent spot in their record collection. The hosts start the discussion with a history of the album, followed by their personal history with it. Over the course of two episodes, they do a track-by-track review of the album and the videos that accompany the singles. They conclude by each giving the album a final review and rating of zero to five record adapters. Join Brian and Sarah in this fun look back at the hits-- along with some misses-- of the 70s and 80s!

Episode 110: Electrical Language - Quadrascope, Jupiter Red, Naked Lunch, Box of Toys, Thomas Leer

Back in Summer of 2019, Cherry Red Records released a 4-CD compilation titled "Electrical Language: Independent British Synth Pop 78-84." Brian wanted to buy it, but having recently signed up for Spotify, he felt obligated to try streaming his music instead of buying everything he wanted. The Great Spotify Experiment soon came to a disastrous end, and unfortunately, the box set slipped Brian's mind.

Fast-forward to Summer of 2020, and Brian has finally acquired the collection. After listening to all 80 tracks multiple times, both Brian & Sarah have deemed Cherry Red's work on the set to be "inspirational and excellent."

Of course, 80 songs is a few too many to discuss in one episode, so in this special Summer One-Off show, the hosts each pick 2 or 3 of their favorite tracks to research and report on.

Brian and Sarah are both really excited to share what they have learned about these new (to them anyway!) artists. Along the way, the conversation turns to topics like Vince Clarke, Claudia Brücken, is Dave Gahan a "beer boy?", Alison Moyet's early band The Vicars, Austrian Slick-Meister Falco, a Glam Rock band called Hello that neither can recall, and a reminder about our current give-away. Don't forget that we want to send YOU free CDs by Cause & Effect, Von Hertzog, and VHxRR. Trust us - they are all seriously great listens!

Songs Discussed:
Quadrascope - Baby Won't Phone

Naked Lunch - Rabies
