Episode 7: “Merry Xmas!!! (Let’s Talk Shit About Jay Gordon)”
Recorded: Saturday, December 19, 2015…
‘Tis the season! Our curmudgeonly co-hosts John Galope and Ilker Yücel get jolly in this special Holiday-themed episode, discussing and digressing on the merits of crowdfunding, the audience now as patrons of the arts, and the diminishing impact of the traditional music industry model. In addition, they give a considerable amount of praise to electro/rock band Julien-K, briefly touching on Trent Reznor’s announcement of new Nine Inch Nails material in 2016, the next step of game designer Hideo Kojima’s career following his departure from Konami, their mutual preference of Dennis Quaid’s portrayal of Doc Holliday over Val Kilmer’s, and the generally liberal mindset of the industrial/electro scene. Things also get a little political as the pair unleash an onslaught of strong criticism against Orgy front man and vocalist Jay Gordon in the wake of his support of a certain presidential candidate’s proposed anti-Muslim policies.
ReGen Magazine wishes all of the readers and listeners a very Happy Holiday season, and a very Happy New Year, 2016!!!
