Podcast: Coyle & Sharpe Ep. 9: Smash the State

| 1 comment


In the early 1960s, James P. Coyle and Mal Sharpe roamed the streets of San Francisco, microphone in hand, roping strangers into bizarre schemes and surreal stunts. Today, their humor is a cultural touchstone for artists as varied as Henry Rollins and The Upright Citizens Brigade.

These recordings are from the Sharpe family archive, which is tended by Mal's daughter, Jennifer Sharpe. You can learn more about Coyle & Sharpe on their website or on MySpace. Their recent box set is These 2 Men Are Imposters.

This week, Coyle & Sharpe affect piss-poor French accents and ask an antique dealer if they can smash his goods.

Bullseye


Sa-Ra Creative partners are Taz Arnold, Shafiq Husayn, and Om'Mas Keith, three producer/performers out to revolutionize urban music. Mentored by Dr. Dre, Ice T and Jam Master Jay, admired by J Dilla, Kanye West and ?uestlove, and collaborators with Pharoahe Monch, Erykah Badu and Herbie Hancock, they certainly have a resume auspicious enough to do achieve that goal.

Their new CD, "The Hollywood Recordings," was just released by Babygrande Records, and they're currently preparing a major label release with the help of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label.

Podcast: Joketacular

| 0 comments
Show: 
Bullseye

This week's Sound of Young America broadcast is a delightful ride through the world of comedic entertainment. A Joketacular, if you will.

My guest is Brian Posehn. Brian is a standup comedian who's appeared on almost every sitcom ever made as "that guy." He was also a writer and actor on HBO's Mr. Show.

I talk with Brian about his chidhood as a self-described "misfit." He describes being called in to the counselor's office, so the powers that be could check on "Brian the ticking timebomb." He also describes his early 20s, when he drunklenly leapt from a lifeguard tower and was paralyzed from the waist down. Brian also talks with us about the writer's room at Mr. Show, and his feelings about being recognized on the street. The version of the interview contained here is somewhat shortened, the full, unedited version is available here.

We also hear comedy from all over the world (OK, it's all from the US, except for one song from New Zealand, but still).

Songs:
"Pi" by Hard N Phirm
"First of May" by Jonathan Coulton
"Jenny" by Flight of the Conchords

Sketch:
"Extreme Food" from Meat (performing at Sketchfest NYC in June)

and Standup:
Todd Barry from "Invite Them Up"

First, the guys talk to the mysterious Inspector #14 of underwear-inspecting fame. After, legendary soul singer Swamp Dogg talks about being a cult artist, his transformation into Swamp Dogg and why his liner notes were so great. Also, some of his hard-to-find, great music is played and discussed.
