This Song: Eric Owen of Black Pistol Fire // Modern Outsider Records

Posted by on Jun 1, 2016

Black Pistol Fire Drummer Eric Owen likes the simple grooves but he didn’t know it until he heard Nirvana’s “In Bloom.” Hear about this revelation and how the song lead him to finally learn to play the drums. Then the owners of Austin’s Modern Outsider Records, Erin and Chip Adams, talk about how Suede’s “Heroine” and The Cure’s “Close to Me” set them, in their own ways, on a course to loving songs that were off the beaten path, record collecting and finally starting their own record label.

Eugene Mirman may not be a musician per se, but his new comedy record “I’m Sorry, (You’re Welcome)” is a 9 Volume, 7 LP set of comedy that includes music in the form of meditations and erotic soundscapes.  Listen as he explains to Elizabeth McQueen why he chose to incorporate music into his latest release and stage show and talks about the music that inspires him…or doesn’t.

Then Elliot Frazier and Daniel Corborn of Ringo Deathstarr talk about how hearing Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine when they were kids helped them see that they could make music that was discordant, distorted and totally satisfying.
