    With literally hundreds of compilations exploring the continuum of The Who's canon discography and beyond... keeping track of variations and critical recordings can be genuinely maddening!Let Discography's host, Marc With a C, be your leader and your guide to the compilation cream that rose to the top and the remixed albums that are completely essential for any self-respecting Who fanatic. Learn about how the legendary band's catalog got into such messy shape, and if you've joined us for our entire journey through the Who's history, this epilogue episode ties up some of the loose ends in The Who's canon as we look onward to the future.On this series we aim to provide an exhaustive but equally entertaining look at a musician's work. Taking on one of the greatest and most important acts in the history of rock music is something we don't take lightly - as evidenced by our comprehensive journey through not just the band's work, but also their complete solo careers. That's a lot of records! And with Pete Townshend

    After John Entwistle's shocking death on the eve of The Who's 2002 tour, few could have been blamed for considering that event to be the proverbial "end of the road" for the group. Even fewer could have predicted that it would instead be followed by one of the largest tours in the band's history and their first album of new material in well over two decades, Endless Wire. But that's not all! If you'll carefully check the liner notes to Roger Daltrey's 2018 album As Long As I Have You - you might even notice enough appearances from Pete Townshend to consider it a secret Who album.Rather than being The Who's twilight years, the era from 2002-present is actually among the most productive periods since their initial heyday! Host, Marc With a C, digs into the circumstances that brought the Who to a full-fledged reemergence - even when the backstories aren't particularly flattering. In fact, there's an especially ugly elephant in the room that we have to address right off the bat, and you might want to consider thi

    The Who: 1989-2002 - Join Together to Scoop 3

    12/02/2019 Duração: 01h18min

    The 90s were a strange and unpredictable time for The Who. The band was back as a touring act but little else, meanwhile the individual members pressed on into their solo careers. Townshend's passion projects paved the way for eventual Who material, Daltry soldiered on to find a way forward musically, and Entwistle threw caution to the wind to start his own group with friends Steve Luongo and Godfrey Townsend (no relation). These twelve-odd years are the building blocks of how The Who put themselves back together - recreating the sounds of their records onstage for the first time - instead of the other way around. Plus... there's some very deep wells of little-known, but vital material to explore. Prepare for Maximum Discography!Join host Marc for a fan's-eye-view into the controversial 1989 reunion tour and a deep dive with Cap Blackard into the pros and cons of the two different versions of Townshend's concept album, Psychoderelict. Eventually the band returned to loudest, classic-style performances for the

    The Who: 1982-1989 - It's Hard to The Iron Man

    05/02/2019 Duração: 01h26min

    Following the release of their 1982 album, It's Hard, The Who called it quits and spent the rest of the 80s redefining their solo careers. Join Discography host Marc With a C as he chronicles what he's dubbed "the first farewell era" - exploring the ways that the group had splintered and how they carried on in finding their individual voices. John Entwistle wouldn't have much luck getting his new record off the ground, Roger Daltry released a series of baffling solo projects, while Pete Townshend dabbled in film, book editing, and pursuits that would increasingly incorporate interwoven stories.This is where Discography's commitment to discovering WHO the band really is kicks into gear as we dive into not just what the members do between albums, but what they do when there's no band to fall back on. And there's plenty of revelations to go around! For instance: Marc admits that he'd misunderstood the intent of Townshend's Iron Man album for years, and posits a theory about the White City album/film that's so co

    29/01/2019 Duração: 01h23min

    Between 1977 and 1982, The Who changed in inconceivable ways. They were still a huge live draw, they were making massive hit records, and their tenure as stars of the silver screen was only seeming to grow, but this period certainly contained some of the saddest chapters in Who history: the death of the seemingly indestructible Keith Moon, the passing of previous manager Kit Lambert, and the Cincinnati stampede that left many fans injured or deceased. However, the records the group made during these trying times remain as solid as anything that any group of humans could hope to churn out under such dire circumstances.This transitional time that saw the band bring drummer Kenney Jones into the fray and allowing an outside keyboardist to appear on the stage with the group in the form of John "Rabbit" Bundrick. Meanwhile, Pete Townshend's solo successes sometimes overshadowed those of his main group. Join host, Marc With A C, for this highly emotional episode leading us into some of the most hotly debated moves

    22/01/2019 Duração: 01h25min

    By 1973, The Who were superstars. Their gargantuan rock opera Quadrophenia had given wayward teenagers a mirror with which to find themselves, even though the ensuing tour would be the catalyst for each band member to go a bit off the rails in their own ways.Join host Marc With a C on a sojourn through 1973 to 1976, when Ken Russell's film adaptation of Tommy took the world by storm, and turned lead vocalist Roger Daltrey into a heartthrob for teenyboppers everywhere. During this short window, three-fourths of the band would somehow also find the time to make solo statements, each with varying degrees of success, while Pete would bleed onto the page with confessional works like The Who By Numbers.Brace yourselves for Maximum Discography, as this episode touches on the albums Quadrophenia, Odds & Sods, Two Sides of the Moon, Mad Dog, Ride a Rock Horse, The Who By Numbers, One of the Boys, and even a few soundtrack appearances!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    15/01/2019 Duração: 01h32min

    Our first episode saw the band rise from humble beginnings all the way to 1969, when The Who had somehow made themselves world famous for writing a rock opera about a physically challenged boy with a talent for... pinball? Of course, you'd celebrate such a feat with a tour of revered opera houses and then record a live album in a glorified school cafeteria, wouldn't you? I mean, it just makes sense.Join host Marc With A C as he traces the connection between the The Who emerging on the global stage, while the members themselves used their newfound power to explore their own interests in solo records. If you thought Tommy was a lofty premise, well then you don't know "Lifehouse". We explore the unfinished project which would have predicted the internet in 1971; the rock-redefining music that came out of it, and much more: Live At Leeds, Smash Your Head Against The Wall, Who's Next, Who Came First, Whistle Rhymes, Daltrey, and Rigor Mortis Sets In!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out informa

    For the past four episodes, Discography has counted down Janet Jackson's studio records - her self-titled 1982 debut to 2015's Unbreakable. But as host Marc With a C assembled this season, he was completely caught off-guard by just how much completely essential non-album music Ms. Jackson had produced over the years. In this epilogue episode, we discuss some of the best and brightest of her b-sides and give tips on how to find them - for the discriminating record junkie than needs physical media.Janet Jackson's State of the World Tour has just wrapped, and there's rumblings behind the scenes of big things to come. This might be the end of this Discography season, but let's just say it might not be the end of her discography. In this episode, Marc ties up some loose canonical ends to this particular musical narrative and waxes poetic about the rumblings of Miss Jackson's future - not just in the new music end of things, but also long-overdue accolades. Special guest Mike Litherland leads the charge and shares

    Janet Jackson - while still rightfully considered to be one of the biggest stars that the Western world has ever known - was practically silenced in the world of popular music by a 2004 "media blacklist". After that, it would appear that only a fraction of the music-buying public was even aware that she continued to make music after the event that came to be known as "Nipplegate".In this penultimate episode of our Janet Jackson season of Discography, host Marc With a C, aided and abetted by certified Jacksons freak/funkmeister/DJ Chris LeBrane was determined to see how these lesser known albums - 20 Y.O., Discipline, and Unbreakable - would stack up against the rest of her illustrious recording career. You might be surprised at their reactions - as well as who might've been not-so-secretly steering the Janet Jackson ship in the late 2000's!This episode's discography: 0:00: Intro to Discography / 6:37: 20 Y.O. / 36:55: Discipline / 56:43: Links that matter / 59:21 Unbreakable / 01:18:45 Outro  See ac

    31/07/2018 Duração: 59min

    In 2001, Janet Jackson was on top of the pop music world. Her blockbuster album All For You had just made her the first artist in the history of music to produce five consecutive number one albums in a row, her singles were making millions of people happy, and a mere live television performance on HBO brought in 12 million viewers alone.And then? A "wardrobe malfunction" saw Janet blacklisted from nearly every avenue that had once championed her.In this episode of Discography, Marc With a C continues his trek though all of Janet's canonical albums taking on All For You and the slept-on Damita Jo, while making an unfortunate, but necessary, detour away from the music and into tabloid territory. "Nipplegate", as the Superbowl incident has come to be known, casts a long shadow that very much impacts everything that came afterward. Fortunately funkmeister and Jacksons expert Chris LeBrane is along for the ride to add some sugar to this sour note in Janet's legacy.What did her albums sound like after the world sto

    Discography picks up Janet's story in the thick of her complete domination of pop culture with her seminal and influential albums: 1989's Rhythm Nation 1814, '93's janet., and '97's The Velvet Rope. Some of these albums defined genres, while others would redefine that same genre completely just a few years later.Janet Jackson's biggest and best-known glory days are the focus of this episode, as Discography takes a deep dive into why these albums matter so much and continue to stand the test of time. No matter how much you think you know about Janet, Marc With a C aims to multiply that number exponentially. Get the point?Good.

    Marc takes on the one and only Janet Jackson! (Miss Jackson, if you're nasty.)She's sold around 100 million albums worldwide - but all too often remembered for tabloid fodder and her an already famous family. It's just unfair, and Marc sets out to see how her music stands alone and stands up! In this debut episode, we're looking at her much-maligned early records 1982's Janet Jackson & and '84's Dream Street, as well as her first breakout smash with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis at the helm: 1986's Control.This journey into platinum pop is weirder than you might think, and along for the ride is lifelong Jacksons fanatic Chris LeBrane of the funky new wave act, Chris LeBrane's Campaign. When it comes to Janet, there's so much to know, yet the real story might actually be told in the grooves!This episode's discography: 0:00: Intro to Discography and Janet Jackson / 20:00 Janet's debut album / 34:23 Dream Street / 48:39 Links that matter / 52:55 Control  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out

    While venturing into the hitherto unknown territory of reviewing all Frank Zappa records as one big song was a feat in and of itself, Marc isn't done talking Zappa! After spending 5 episodes voicing his own takes, it's high time to get some other perspectives: "Weird Al" Yankovic, actor/ documentarian Alex Winter, and Zappa band member Mike Keneally.Each of these guests share their first encounters with Zappa's music, the ways he influenced their lives, and they even offer advice on which album should be your first.Alex Winter is presently in the midst of assembling the Zappa documentary to end them all. We hear how he gained unprecedented access to the Zappa vault and how this Kickstarter-record-breaking production is preserving priceless pieces of music history.Mike Keneally shares memories from being brought into Zappa's 1988 band as a guitar wunderkind, working alongside the master, and elaborates on the controversial, forthcoming Zappa hologram tour."Weird Al" Yankovic took a break from his Ridiculously
