Been a long time since we did an old school, audio only podcast. Reason for that was I had flown back to Michigan for a few days to hang with the family, so I recorded it from within the confines of me old bedroom. For some reason, I sound like shit in this one. Probably didn’t turn up the gain high enough on my metallic phallus. But, hey, what’s a Savage Hippie podcast without cavernous, “death rock” echo on at least one of the hosts.
Anyway, David Cole, Ann Sterzinger, and I talk about a bunch of stuff, but probably the focal point, or the thing that will stick out to most people is our analysis of the recent Richard Spencer talk at the University of Florida, where he, Mike Enoch of the Right Stuff and Daily Shoah, and Eli Mosely of some Identity Europa.. Evropa b.s. shout at and antagonize a crowd of typical leftists, who in response shout back at them for a hundred awkward minutes.
Now, I’m all for the dissemination of controversial ideas, but there’s a way to do it without letting your speaking engagement degenerate into a sideshow act. A few people I know think that, because the leftists acted like typical leftists, Spencer, Enoch, and Mosely won converts. I did not see this AT ALL. I can’t imagine anyone seeing the video and saying, “wow, I want to join THAT!” But, hey, judge for yourself.
And, for this episode’s Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I play a song from the new Nik Turner album, Life in Space. Turner was originally in Hawkwind, probably my all time favorite band,where he played saxophone and flute, and, though he’s in his 70s, continues to tour, having the band Hedersleben, whose guitarist, Nicky Garratt, was in punk rock legends the U.K. Subs, as his backup band. I chose the track “Master of the Univerise”, which was originally on the second Hawkwind album, In Search of Space, and was thus covered by Turner and his current band. Check it out here.
One of our lovely and talented female fans did the Injun artwork, and the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.
