season 3, episode 4: nico’s the marble index in which we’re back on our bullshit about trailblazing women, discussing how radical nico’s agency and aesthetic were in 1968, this album’s difficult themes, and what makes it so influential to the goth rock genre
In case you missed it: A fantastic new episode of the ’77 Music Club podcast is now live. It’s a special one — we interviewed iconic punk baddie Viv Albertine about an album that’s influenced her (Dionne Warwick’s Golden Hits Pt 1) and learned so, so much in the process. It’s a great one. Tune in here.
’77 Music Club is back for a third season! In the latest episode, we break down Laura Nyro’s 1968 album Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. We discuss Nyro’s evocative imagery and sense of self, the surprising and enlightening ways we found it connecting to our own experiences as young women in 2018 — particularly examining the similarities and stark differences between second and fourth wave feminism — and of course, musical earworms. For a 50-year-old album recorded and produced by a 20-year-old girl, this prodigious record still remains astonishingly relevant.
Carly and I will be joining Crispin Kott and Mike Katz to discuss their new book, Rock & Roll Explorer Guide to New York City at Rough Trade NYC. Come hear us talk about music, New York, and the history between the two. Moredetails here.
Carly & I talked to Quiet Lunch aboutour podcast, ‘77 Music Club, New York, and why rock and roll isn’t dying among those under 40. Check out the full interview (and more photos of me with severe resting judgmental badger face!) here.
