MurphDawg & Hair VVeber welcome you Beatallibangers to episode twelve of BeatalliCAST and we delve into all things Abbey Load!
Grab a cold one or two and sit back and enjoy. Crank it up heshers. We get things started with a bash-up of a few old Beatallica radio commercials and then right into the rare classic, yet still unreleased, tune Hit The Lights- recorded live in Illinois back in ought eight.
We then dig deep into the BeatalliCAST archive for a super rare live track from Vnuck's Lounge (Milwaukee, WI) with the original live line-up of Beatallica and crank out Leper Madonna. We played the first 20 minutes of this show a few episodes back but knew that we needed to jam something new for you listeners with a little old school Beatallica to celebrate Beatallica's 12th birthday (April 1st). This show was videotaped by us on April 1, 2005.
Next up a new segment for us- BeatalliCAST listeners sent in "shout-outs" audio clips, we dig this stuff and hope we can continue this sillyness. We had submissions from Austria, Germany, California, and also one from out in the Pacific Ocean on a tugboat (heading towards Hawaii)! Thanx and cheers to you heshers for turning in your homework in time for us to share some of them with everyone.
We then talk about our involvement with the creation of the Abbey Load album artwork and the photo shoots with the band. We focus in on some of the more fun elements of the cover photo and other hidden nonsense. Yes we are on the cover if you look closely wearing our custom made Beatallica t-shirts. Below is an outtake close up of us with Foster (he appears throughout the album artwork).
We then chat about the tunes on Abbey Load and the Live versions we have heard performed before. We also discuss our viewpoint on the other new tunes on the album and how Beatallica was challenged to record differently then on pervious albums. Next we spin an audio clip of Kliff talking about what the word HESH means to him, this was recorded by us while he and Flemball were setting up gear to record during a Sgt. Het's session back in 2007. This is a segment we thought about before recording our first episode but we never followed up on it until now (more on this in future episodes).
We next jam the rare live tune I'll Just Bleed Your Face in preparation for our guest Carl Caprioglio, CEO and President of Oglio Entertainment. We still think Beatallica should have sung "OGLIO" in the that song- missed the mark on that one (in our minds- ha).
We chat with Carl all things Oglio and it's 20 year history in the record industry. Carl talks about first hearing about Beatallica on the radio and then flying out to Milwaukee, WI to sign Beatallica to his label (a first for him in his career), working to get Beatallica released legally, marketing the band, and much much much more!!
This interview was a long time in coming as we have been working with him supporting Beatallica since 2007. Good times indeed! Thankz Carl!
Side note: Foster decided to run around and hump his stuffed monkey bumping to our recording equipment and kept MurphDawg busy during the interview, hence why MurphDawg was distracted and only gets to chime in a handful of times.
As we finish up with this episode we dug back into the archives again and pulled out another live track- The Battery of Jaymz and Yoko.
Stay Hesh & Prost You Suck!
