Mildstyle Podcast 1: The Dub Version

Okay loyal blog-followers. Coming at you live from April 3, 2008, from The Lab in Steven’s old junior-single apartment at 1310 Lilac Terrace in beautiful, sunny, sprawling, broken-glass-everywhere Los Angeles. The long, long, long-awaited first installment of the Mildstyle Radcast.

CAVEAT, WARNING, MEA CULPA, DISCLAIMER: Some of the sound, especially on the vinyl tracks, is dodgy at times. Also, we are embarrassed by our contributions. We are indebted to our guests for the listenable parts. This was a trial run. Give us the benefit of as many doubts as you can muster.

Personnel: Eric, Steven, Smoothness Compliance Officer Jessica, Steven’s old neighbor Angel, and Angel’s sister Nadia.

Highlights: Ice Cube, The Thorn Birds, coyotes, a lively discussion of Black Flag’s “Slip It In,” Steven’s cats knock things over, and Angel pontificates about Nick Cave.


  • Carla Thomas, “I Can’t Take It”
  • Joni Mitchell, “A Case of You”
  • Grace Jones, “Private Life (The Dub Version)”
  • Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions, “People Get Ready”
  • The Blow, “Jet Ski Accidents”
  • T.S.O.L, “Revenge”
  • Five Stairsteps, “Ooh Child”

We have two more recorded and (almost) ready for posting, so this time you know it’s serious. Load up those RSS feeds, people. This is the too-long-in-coming official launch of The Mildstyle Podcast.

Housekeeping: We’re going to work on getting this real user-friendly, and getting it iTunes hosted so fools can just have it update right into their iTunes. In the meantime, left-click on the link above if you want to download the mp3, or right-click if you want it to play in your browser.

Personal note from Steven: A year later, the Carla Thomas song is still in heavy rotation. That song is one of the best songs ever performed, and Eric agrees. Mildstyle Seal of Approval.
