6: I Am The Black Wizards


Few Americans listened to European black metal in the 1990s. Fewer still went to the shows, wore the shirts, started their own bands, or developed an encyclopedic knowledge of the genre. As it happens, three of those people reunited in one room for one very special episode.

This week, as James takes a break to meet his new baby, Joe and Yama welcome a very special guest host for a very personal reminiscence about one of the most extreme and fascinating underground music scenes of recent years. Also, Joe unleashes a torrent of new unnecessary bleeps, and Yama goes off on wet hamburgers.
