High and Low (Brow) – Series 4 Ep 10 – Schlock Rock
And we’re back! We’re a couple weeks past our intended release date thanks primary to James returning to being a useful member of society. Oh sure he has a job and is interacting with people, but he’s supposed to be watching movies and recording episodes of High and Low (Brow). But, you know, I’m not bitter.
This is our series finale for the show as we plan on taking a short Holiday break before returning again in January. Of course we still plan to release some other podcasts during that time, just not new episodes of High and Low (Brow). But for this episode, kindly submitted to us by listener Rick Vance, we visit a couple of relatively obscure Rock & Roll based films. First up is Wild Zero (1999), a Japanese punk rock film that you have to see to believe. Following that we have Rock & Rule (1983), a Canadian animated film that has an incredible soundtrack yet struggled to ever be shown outside of Canada.
Besides that, we wax nostalgic on James’ recent failures, and we throw out some ideas for film series to watch before finally getting down and dirty and coming up with a new segment that will no doubt quickly turn ugly, and you’ll have a front row seat for the entire debacle.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for High and Low (Brow), or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through any of the feeds in the right hand column so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook, Letterboxd and his second attempt at Twitter. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.
One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’ve done some upgrading to our equipment in recent months, and every little bit helps as we continue to try ans stay ahead of the curve.
And, as always, thanks for listening!
