Our celebration of Lou Reed’s deafeningly assaultive 1975 double-LP Metal Machine Music continues with author David Holzer, who’s currently working on a book about the record!

In this episode, David & I discuss:

  • The manifold ways in which Metal Machine Music can be used as a weapon;  
  • Why having a propensity for substance abuse lends itself to having the skill set one may require to fully immerse within the depths of Lou’s work;
  • And the f*cking sonic seagulls!   

True to the original, Discograffiti creator/host Dave Gebroe’s tribute compilation Metal Machine Muzak features four long-form tracks, each clocking in at 16 minutes and 1 second, by four indie-rock visionaries: LOU BARLOW (Dinosaur Jr, Sebadoh), CORY HANSON (Wand), W. CULLEN HART (The Olivia Tremor Control) and MARK ROBINSON (Unrest).  

METAL MACHINE MUZAK will be available in two different configurations: digital-only or double vinyl plus digital.  The double-LP gatefold configuration will be pressed on 180-gram metallic silver vinyl, and is limited to an exclusive numbered run of 300 copies, only 90 of which will be available for purchase online. 

METAL MACHINE MUZAK was curated and released by Dave Gebroe, creator and host of the music obsessive’s podcast, Discograffiti. Both are available online ONLY on The Discograffiti Podcast's Patreon Record Shop. They will not be on streaming.
