Sunspot Road Mania - Ep. 18

In this episode, we have:

- More fun from the Home of the Octabong
- A little Ass Harvest discussion
- "Cemetery Highway" from our new album, Cynical

I think the sound qualiy isn't the greatest (especially on the album track, I encoded it at like AM-radio quality, sorry!), but there's some fun in there, especially when we're relaxing in the hot tub in the back of the truck!

Sunspot Road Mania - Ep. 9

Tales From The Backstage of Milwaukee's Summerfest 2005. The sound quality isn't awesome in some parts (I think the iTalk clips a little in the beginning), but you can tell we're having a great time!

Sunspot Road Mania Episode 8

Hanging out at Wendy's, getting ready for Summerfest.

Trying out the Castblaster, but the background music didn't work. These are the songs that you were supposed to hear in the background:
"We Are All on Drugs" - Weezer
"The New Year" - Death Cab for Cutie
"Allison" - The Pixies
"Freak Me Out" - Weezer

We will link to the picture we are talking about as soon we can figure out how I messed up the Lower Hell site.

Don't forget to stop by the show tomorrow night if you're in Milwaukee- 7:30 at the Harley Stage.

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 7

Here's the new Road Mania podcast from the NUNA show at the High Noon Saloon last night. It was really loud in the venue and people are a little intoxicated, but the sound is still pretty good and there's some great moments.

You can click on the title of this post to download it, if you aren't subscribed on iPodder or the new iTunes with podcasting feeds built-in.

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 6

Here's the podcast from the recording studio today.

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 6

Where are 2, 4, and 5 you ask? On their way! Wendy's putting them together. I just wanted to get this one out tonight because I'm still juiced up. No local indie music today, just a soundseeing tour of Smart Studios and various idiocy of us in the recording process.

Man, I'm tired now. I'm going to bed. Good night.

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 3

Alright, here is this week's installment of Sunspot Road Mania!

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 3
Recorded 5/29/05

This week's episode features the following songs, in order of appearance:

"Droids Attack" by Droids Attack (Madison, WI)
"Perfect Day" by Pine (Madison, WI)
"Natural" by Awesome Car Funmaker (Madison, WI)

Now... Just in case you're wondering, "Wendy, how can you possibly have an Episode 3 of Sunspot Road Mania when there is NO Episode 2?!"

Well, the answer is simple, friends. Episode 2 does exist, but it is not entirely assembled yet. Due to my being a total moron (and my apartment being in complete disarray in preparation of my impending move), I seem to have misplaced Ben's section of the podcast, so I need to get another copy from him. Sorry! I'll put it together after practice tomorrow (Wednesday), I promise. :)

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 2

Mike's note: This one originally was put up on August 10th, 2005, but since I'm reordering the podcasts for the new podcast feed, I'm putting it in the correct order

Hello Friends....

You didn't read wrong! Yes, it should be Episode 12, but this week's Podcast has been slightly delayed due to some technical problems.

Don't worry, Episode 12 will be up soon. But in the meantime, here is one of The Lost Episodes, the elusive Episode 2!

It was recorded after the weekend of May 20, 2005, when we played at Frienz bar in Middleton, WI.

The episode features the following music:

"Stare" by Big Fur (Springfield, IL)
"Early Guns" by The Treats (Madison, WI)
"Oral Giraffe" by Timmy from BoRd (Madison, WI)

Here's the Podcast!

Sunspot Road Mania - Ep. 1

Alright... Here's our first attempt at a Podcast. I admit, I am the one to blame for the poor editing. We did all of the recording while driving in the van last weekend, on the way to Lafayette and back.

We're going to try to record at least one each weekend. Not sure exactly what it will turn out to be, but let's hope it improves with time (practice makes perfect, right?). ;)

For some reason the levels are a little screwed up, so I need to work on that.... But enough of the excuses. Without further delay, here is Sunspot's very first podcast episode:

Sunspot Road Mania - Episode 1

Featured music:
"She Loves Me Cause I Rock" by Shooting Blanks
"Can't See Straight" by The Edgerton's Pen Conspiracy (EPC)
"Freakshow" by Sunspot

Any comments/feedback and ideas for future episodes are welcome!

Sunspot Road Mania Separate Feed

This is going to be a separate feed specifically for the Sunspot Road Mania podcast, so that people on iTunes and iPodder can see all the podcasts in the feed and not just the new ones. I should've done this right in the beginning, but I'm kind of an idiot.
