Episode 399 – The Boundary of Space between the Hook and Culture

In another episode of Music That Broke Me, we move on from Pump Up The Volume and into the harder edge of The Pixies. Trompe Le Monde opened up a whole world of music for me and Less Than Zero and Bright Lights Big City opened up the possibility that I could harness my own voice into my first serious novel. The books and the music brought out PJ Harvey, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, and introduced me to punk rock. Different music was everywhere, including the magazine CMJ Monthly and I took it all in. Come take a listen to some music broke boundaries.

In this episode:

Subbacultcha – The Pixies

Space (I Believe In) – The Pixies

Hook – PJ Harvey

Innercity Boundaries – Freestyle Fellowship

So Wat’cha Want – Beastie Boys

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
