ReGen DigressionsSeason 2
Episode 01: “Gotta Get Funky!
Recorded: Saturday, November 26, 2016…


After several delays and technical issues, the curmudgeonly cohosts John Galope and Ilker Yücel return with this episode to kick off the second season with a digression on the roots of industrial music. From the genre’s avant-garde and artistic beginnings, to the experimentation of prog rock, to the heavy influence of funk, jazz, reggae, and even disco on the WaxTrax! era, along with a total deconstruction of punk rock’s significance to industrial, the bitter brothers break down just what makes this style of music tick! As usual, we hear the pair diverge and digress along the way, with anecdotes about the pair’s weekend excursions to TGI Fridays and Galope’s encounter with Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye to top things off.
