066 - Billy Joel - River Of Dreams (1993) (with Scott Kurland) In 1989, 70s piano rock crooner Billy Joel released his eleventh studio record Storm Front, which sold well and rendered seven Billboard singles, but was roundly rejected by critics. It would take Joel four years after Storm Front to put out a follow-up album, four years filled with behind-the-scenes turmoil in Joel's private life, multiple embezzlement lawsuits directed towards members of Joel's team, bouts with depression and anxiety, and a rising sense of middle-aged existential dread.These experiences would color the material on Billy Joel's twelfth record River of Dreams, which in addition to containing markedly more serious, insular, and dark material than had been on previous records, would signal Joel's exit from pop music songwriting. Critics and fans were sharply divided upon its release, and in spite of its commercial success River of Dreams generated a great deal of controversy between people who couldn't decide if the album was a grand finale on Joel's storied career, or a glorified mid-life crisis.That's what we're here to find out. On this episode of Jukebox Zeroes, Lilz and Patrick herald the long-awaited return of frequent guest Scott Kurland to dive deep beneath the surface of River of Dreams. Will the trio unearth buried treasure and wonders aplenty underneath the waves? Or come down with a violent case of the 90s soft rock bends in the briny murk?Local Music Feature: Beauty Is The End - Kiss Them
020 - Corey Feldman - Angelic 2 The Core: Angelic Rockadelic (2 Rock) (2016) (with Scott Kurland) (Part 2) Oh god.There's two of them.The goodboix now find themselves with Scott Kurland (Writer's Bagel Basket / Kurland On Film) trapped in an auditory prison of their own making. Their jailer is former heartthrob/charity case Corey Feldman, star of iconic 80s films like The Goonies, Gremlins, and Lost Boys, and their cell is his abominable 2016 album Angelic 2 The Core.Our intrepid trio made their way through the first disc of this crime against audio, a long and arduous journey filled with the most rotten forms of EDM, dubstep, and pop-rap to be ineptly gargled by a washed up child star, only to discover to their horror and woe that there's an entire second disc to listen to.And so they press on, headlong into a swirling abyss filled with half-assed pop-rock, inexplicable soft-shoe jazz, white people reggae, incompetent tributes to fellow child stars, and so much more, with only their wits and snarky YouTube comments to keep them sane.That's our extra poetic way of saying we listened to the 2nd half of Angelic 2 The Core.Opening trailer music is "Raid" by Ender Güney. -
019 - Corey Feldman - Angelic 2 The Core: Angelic Funkadelic (2 Dance) (2016) (with Scott Kurland) (Part 1) Corey Feldman may have starred in some of the most iconic films of the 1980s, (The Goonies, Stand By Me, The Lost Boys, and many others) but the former child actor has had a pretty rough go of things as the years have gone by. Since the 1980s ended, Feldman has been the victim of embezzlement, endured a rough and public drug addiction for many years of his life, and perhaps worst and most degrading of all: begun a music career.After years of releasing records with little to no critical acclaim or commercial success, and after a series of all-too-public humiliations following a long absence from the public eye, Feldman would unleash his opus upon the world: 2016's Angelic 2 The Core, an album which took 10 years to write, clocked in at 95-minutes, and run the gamut of incompetent takes on EDM, dubstep, hip-hop, and other genres. Commercial success continued not to follow, while critics were just trying to figure out what the hell they just listened to.Now in 2018, the goodboix of Jukebox Zeroes prepare themselves to dive headlong into the mad musical psychosis of Corey Feldman, dragging return guest Scott Kurland (Writer's Bagel Basket / Kurland On Film) along for the ride, kicking and screaming. Join them as they see just how apocalyptic Angelic 2 The Core is, and what the limits of their sanity are.
Episode 009 - David Bowie "Tonight" (1984) (with Scott Kurland) Even the greatest performers of all time can drop a washout of an album. Just look at rock legend David Bowie, who followed up his greatest commercial success with one of his biggest critical disappointments. 1984's Tonight is considered one of the worst (If not THE worst) Bowie albums released, denounced widely by critics, and later the man himself as an uncreative cash-grab to maintain a newfound fan base, which later led to a period of intense creative languish for the Thin White Duke.This month on Jukebox Zeroes, Lee and Patrick join hands and hearts with film critic Scott Kurland of Kurland on Film, and the podcast Writer's Bagel Basket, to thoroughly dissect Tonight, and decide whether it deserved the critical drubbing it received.This Month's Local Artist Feature: Answerman - "Super Knife"
032 - Pat Boone - In A Metal Mood (1997) (with Scott Kurland) What kind of world were we living in during the late 90s that would lead the clean-cut, pristine former teen idol-turned-Christian conservative Pat Boone to record an album of heavy metal and hard rock standards from the 1970s and 80s?What began as an in-joke between Boone and his backing band gradually developed into a self-professed interest in Satan's favorite genre of rock music. This would snowball into the production of 1997's "In A Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy", in which songs by Metallica, AC/DC, Van Halen, and many others were filtered through Boone's own easy-listening filter, trading rock guitars for swinging lounge horn sections long before the inception of Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine.Whether the end result is any good however, is intensely subjective: Is it a Dr. Demento-ready collection of lounge-turned-rock oddities that defies to be taken seriously, or an annoying record based on an in-joke that grows stale way too quickly, and only succeeds in doing what Pat Boone did best in the 1950s: sucking the life out of really good songs and making them safe for middle America?That's what Lilz & Patrick intend to find out on this episode of Jukebox Zeroes! Joined once again by JBZ all-star Scott Kurland of Writer's Bagel Basket, and a special appearance by the man himself!

038 - The Monkees - Pool It! (1987) (with Scott Kurland) After enjoying years of success as a manufactured pop-rock group in the 1960s, eventually earning their independence from their corporate overlords to perform songs as they saw fit, The Monkees broke up around 1970 as their commercial fortunes waned over time. As the 1980s took shape however, an unexpected resurgence in popularity came about for the band who got their start as the subject of a sitcom, finding a new audience through reruns on MTV and Nickelodeon, and translating it into a highly profitable reunion tour. Keen on capitalizing on these newfound commercial gains, it was decided that The Monkees would put out a new studio album for these new fans.Far from building on their fresh wins, the 1987 comeback album Pool It! was neither a commercial or critical success. If anything it's considered to this day to be one of the more embarassing things to come out of the catalog of musician/actors Mickey Dolenz, Davy Jones, and Peter Tork. (4th Monkee Michael Nesmith opted not to participate, and perhaps for all the better.) The Monkees would not attempt another album until the 90s, and Pool It! ultimately marked the end of the act as little more than a nostalgia band.So many decades later Lilz & Patrick of Jukebox Zeroes have decided to take a shot at Pool It! Joined by frequent JBZ guest Scott Kurland (Writer's Bagel Basket), the three listen to the maligned Monkees record and decide for themselves whether it's not as bad as it seems, or if it's best left for dead.#MusicPodcast#PodernFamily#OddPodSquad#ZeroScience#TheMonkees#PoolIt#DatMulletThoLocal Music Feature: Shoeless Thunder - "New High Score!"
047 - The Heads - No Talking, Just Head (1996) (with Scott Kurland) The band Talking Heads broke up in 1991 largely by the hand of their eccentric frontman and primary songwriter; David Byrne. After several years of mounting turmoil amidst the rest of the group, Byrne decided the legendary new wave act had run it's course, and opted to focus on his own solo career instead.The rest of the band (Tina Weymouth on bass, Chris Frantz on drums, and Jerry Harrison on keys) felt slighted, but ultimately went along with it until the mid-90s, when they expressed a desire to regroup and perform as Talking Heads again. The only stumbling block was Byrne himself, who remained uninterested in continuing under their old band.In Byrne's stead, the trio recruited a collection of guest vocalists (All previous collaborators from other groups) to sing and write lyrics for "No Talking, Just Head", an album produced under the unsubtle moniker of The Heads. Plans for a full tour and multiple new records were blocked by Byrne himself, who sued the new group for being too similar to Talking Heads, but "No Talking, Just Head" would still see release in 1996 to dissatisfaction from critics and reviewers.On this episode of Jukebox Zeroes Lilz & Patrick are joined once again by JBZ all-star Scott Kurland of Writer's Bagel Basket, and the new Zero Science mini-series Where In The World Is Steven Q. Urkel?. The three of them expose themselves to the tragedy that was "No Talking, Just Head", try to find some semblance of normalcy within it, and figure out exactly why Ed Kowalzcyk at all.Local Music Feature: The Difference Engine - "Coastal Number Four"
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- Coming out of our Shells (w/ Scott Kurland) Cowabunga! Today we're taking a trip down memory lane to 1990, when the US was deep in the grip of Turtlemania. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were everywhere, an inescapable vortex of inexplicable SoCal vernacular, mountains of action figures, and cartoon pizzas with really delicious looking drippy cheese. So strong was their hold on pop culture that not even the music world was safe. Coming Out of Their Shells was not just an album but an entire tour with an accompanying concert VHS. The Turtles' rockin' tunes tell the tale of four gnarly dudes who just wanna tube, and The Shredder's dastardly plan to use a machine to destroy music or something? I dunno. Splinter also sings a song about skipping rocks on a pond for whatever reason. Scott Kurland from the Writers Bagel Basket podcast joins us and he and Mike attempt fruitlessly to explain the Ninja Turtles lore to an extremely confused Heather. It's a doozy.
