on this BONUS EPISODE:
Jeremy and I sit down with OLD TIME RELIJUN frontman Arrington DiDionyso, who are have recently returned from a ten-year hiatus with a new album "See Now and Know" and a new tour that started the night before this episode's release. We discuss the origins of the group, influences, lyrical themes and sonic aesthetics. This is a band on a mission to make you dance. Their formula is equal parts joy and terror.
Gary Wilson has been making music since the 1960s and is more active than ever now. His music rides the fence that lies between lounge act and the avant-garde; fun to listen to and difficult to describe. Speaking with Gary, we pull back the curtain and dive into his mind, a place from which one can never return.
She was a jazz pianist in the 1960s, uninterested in the spotlight. A friend played "Pet Sounds" for her and she became a pop fan, and recorded one of the finest pop records of all time in 1969, "Take a Picture." Radio silence followed, until her music had developed a cult following some 30 years later. Today we focus in on Margo Guryan. Special guest John Rosner gives us the inside scoop. Also, patreon.com/lowfprofile is now active (Hey Nick!)
Christian rock wasn’t always a thing, until the controversial singer-songwriter Larry Norman came around. In an era when the church deemed rock and roll evil, Larry wrote a song called “Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music.”
He threw a wrench in the gears of rock and roll history as we know it. My friends and I discuss this game-changing artist’s career (and his influence) at length.
The late operatic new-wave pop phenomenon Klaus Nomi is discussed on today's round-table show, with my friend Vince Ynzunza (who is a big fan) and my friend Vicki Atkins (who has never heard of him). Jump in and get your ears wet. This episode was engineered by Miles Rozatti.
For this first episode, we are exploring the bizarre moment in country music when "talking steel guitar" was all the rage, thanks to a man named Pete Drake. I spoke with several people who were close to him, curated a bunch of his music, and learned things I couldn't find out on the internet.
This is an introduction to Low Profile with Markly Morrison, featuring clips from upcoming episodes. Episode one coming in January 2019!
