After a 23 months hiatus, the Wax & Wane podcast returns. Matt explains why he abandoned you all and then dives into the subject of burning punk artifacts out of protest and the new turntable from Detroit watchmaker Shinola. We also take a look back at the monumental losses that the music world has experienced in 2016 and things finish up with a gem you might find in the bargain bin at your local shop in an installment called Dollar Bin Darlings.
On Episode 009, Matt runs through a bunch of tour dates and music news, then follows it up with a rambling diatribe on the stupidity of the Grammy Awards. Add to that a discussion of a new technology that might allow vinyl lovers the ability to cut their own LPs and another entry for the Reissue Wish List and it all adds up to another hour of vinyl nerdery.
On this week's episode, Matt shares ideas for the vinyl lover's holiday wish list and talks about a golden great from Elton John you can get on the cheap. He also rants and raves about the brilliant and largely unknown out of print 60's pop classic, Would You Believe by Billy Nicholls. There's also some music and vinyl news, a good-natured jab at KISS and more.
