Proto Type V: Reelin’ in The Metal Years

July 15th, 2017

An in depth look at the Penelope Spheeris cult classic Rockumentary film The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years. The Good, the bad, the ass-less chaps. We cover it all, from the bands featured and where they wound up to the deeper themes just under the surface of the debauchery. The exploitation of women, the ethics of the pay to play system touted by Bill Gazzari, the lessons learned from Chris Holmes, and more. Plus the industrial connection between Killing Joke and Faster Pussycat, Lizzy Borden revisited, half harmonized Jeff Foxworthy impersonations, our weekly praise of Lemmy, and the unfortunate fate of Jaded Lady.

Note: The half developed point I (Zach) was trying to make about Faster Pussycat is that in two years a bunch of bands would be doing what they did 200x better so they suck by retrospective comparison. They suck in general but especially by comparison. Clarifying for sake of future sleaze rock episode….
