The Mockers Listen to Journey ‘Escape’

Don't stop believing as your favorite music podcast is back to discuss Journey's 1981 classic album, 'Escape'. The boys lay it down as they discuss each track with open arms and clear thoughts. Which Mocker was crying now over the fact that he believed there were too many filler tracks and who was stone in love with the buttery choruses and solid guitarmanship? And whose mother or father did Jonathan Cain sleep with to have such a heavy hand in the making of his first record with Journey? Keep on runnin' to iTunes to subscribe and review the podcast! Thanks for listening!

The Mockers Podcast returns with a track by track review of Styx's 'Paradise Theater' album! You might as well show you care and listen considering how much time you have on your hands. Are the boys snowblinded by the melodic stylings of Dennis DeYoung? Were Styx practicing Satanists even in the best of times? Nothing ever goes as planned but did this record foreshadow the Covid-19 Crisis? This one is dedicated to all you lonely people out there, thanks for listening!

Mocker Music Musings

     Hello Loyal Mockers…been a while since I have issued any Music Musings and with the year quickly winding down I have been rocking a 2018 New Release Random this week. Thanks to my brother Eric’s Google Music Service I am able to listen to pretty much anything--a far cry from the days when I had to spend real money on an album. An unfortunate side effect of this music buffet is that I stuff my plate but am never able to finish anything--meaning I don’t digest a record because there isn’t enough time with so much to listen to. There are albums in this 999 song random that I haven’t  heard and I only recognize about three quarters of the songs that come up (makes me mad when I can’t identify an artist)…anyway, let’s grab a beverage and play some old school Chorus Game with a mediocre class of 2018 music…

The Rock*A*Teens (Count in Odd Numbers) | Random starts with a nice slab of rock’n’roll from these Cabbagetown, Georgia indie rockers…singer sounds like the Hold Steady guy…

Walter Martin (Colorado Lonesome) | Early year release that features some quirky lyrics and a few really strong offerings…this one, eh, not so much…this definitely is more indie rock sounding than the nitty gritty rock’n’roll of The Rock*A*Teens…Why would you name your band something that is so difficult to type? The Rock*A*Teens might have started as a band members internet password

The Dodos (Excess) | Fuck, fuck, fuck…my first mis-identification is a bad, bad miss…I prematurely guessed psych rockers Oh Sees but this is not even close (I am sure a lot of you are having a good chuckle at me mixing up the Dodos and Oh Sees-what kind of idiot am I?)…this band used to be a purely acoustic affair with a kick ass drummer but this record tries to expand the sound with minimal results

Bradley Cooper (Alibi) | COOOOOOOOOOPPPPPP!!

Jason Isbell (Cover Me Up) | This live record has been leaving me a little flat as it doesn’t seem to replicate the actual kick-ass live Isbell experience…listen closely and you can hear podcast friend The Fiddler issue a ‘shhhh’ during the quiet part of the chorus…

Ty Segall (Fanny Dog) | This prolific garage rocker released a couple records this year and is always welcome to the stage…solid guitarmanship…

Neko Case (Oracle of the Maritimes) | Long time indie chanteuse returns with one of her best records—not a bad song in the batch…definitely placed this in my Mockumendation holster before Jamie ruined our long running podcast segment with his ‘Yellowstone’ selection back in Episode One Hundred and Twelve…

River Whyless (Motel 6) | Not to be confused with Jason Isbell’s ‘Super Eight’…this is another band placed under Mocksideration as their indie-folk stylings are instantly accessible…

First Aid Kit (I’ve Wanted You) | This is from the EP they released after their early-year full length…looks like the random has started The Indie Folk Block sponsored by Johnson City Bubble Tea & Chive…ugh, this song goes on way too long…

Mountain Man (Whale Song) | Second mis-identification as I thought this lo-fi outfit was Cat, this song is grinding The Random to a fucking halt…letting Shea the Beagle outside and hopefully the whale will have returned to the sea upon my return...

Adrianne Lenker (womb) | TURN IT UP TO ELEVEN!!! Actually, no, it’s another lo-fi, folkie, indie act-this time with some squeaky high pitched vocals thrown in for good measure…I actually really like this record, every tune ends up ear-worming at some point…

Bradley Cooper (Black Eyes) | Oh no, Jackson Maine has drunkenly stumbled back on-stage...

Neil Young (Mellow My Mind) | I enjoy this 1973 concert release that centers around Neil’s ‘Tonight’s the Night’ record more than the Isbell show…glad to actually hear a song as this random likes to select a lot of the stage banter tracks from this record…

Eric Bachmann (Daylight) | Didn’t give this album much attention but his solo acoustic styling is so unique I was still able to correctly identify his stage entry…I still make my finger crooked everytime

Nine Inch Nails (God Break Down The Door) | Some bands you just keep listening to even if you stopped liking their music 15 years ago…

Mountain Man (Moon) | Ok, this needs to be expunged from the random…ridiculous that this tuneless, ramshackle outfit merits a second notation…

Courtney Marie Andrews (Border) | Past Mockumendation Winner!! We should send out something to all past winners, maybe a Mockers Podcast coffee mug…

William Shatner (Run Rudolph Run featuring Elliot Easton) | Yep, Captain Kirk released a holiday record with a guest star on each track ranging from Henry Rollins to Brad Paisley to Iggy Pop…this seems like it should have been a Saturday Night Live skit instead of an actual record…

FINAL WRAP UP: Bradley Cooper rules and everyone else drools (especially Mountain Man)…Happy Thanksgiving from The Mockers Podcast!
