The Rock and Roll Geek Show
This is a midweek bonus episode of the Rock and Roll Geek Show. As you probably know by now, I was in London, England a couple of weeks ago for the Ginger birthday bash thanks to Alex from Bathroom Wall and Phil from the Paranoid Squirrel podcast and while I was there, I wandered around the streets of London by myself with a microphone strapped to me. This is what took place while the mic was on. It is what I call 'Walking With Butler Through The Streets of London"

On this show I play a ton of audio comments including a Megadeth Show review, an on the scene of the Joe Perry Project show with roving reporter Jamie from Orlando and a Kiss Show review. I do a douchebag of the week segment and a new Paul Stanley Rap of the week. All that and the usual train wreck bullshit from yours truly. Next stop London England my friends!

Richie Ranno from Starz comes on the show and we take an in-depth look at their 1978 album Attention Shoppers! We go track by track and find out all of the behind the scenes dirt on each song. Richie holds nothing back. If you don't have this album in your record collection, you need to go get it today. Along with all of the Starz records. Each one is a classic.

 

 Review from Allmusic.com:

Arguably, pop-metal is a form of power pop, or, at the very least, the two have some things in common. Like the Raspberries, the Go-Go's, or Blondie, a pop-metal act will typically blend rockin', guitar-powered aggression with pop sensibilities. Cheap Trick and Sweet, in fact, are perfect examples of bands that are relevant to both pop-metal and power pop. So it seemed logical when Starz provided a big dose of outright power pop on its third album, Attention Shoppers!. The band didn't eliminate the pop-metal factor on this 1978 LP; "X-Ray Spex" and "Good Ale We Seek," for example, are the type of pop-minded hard rock items that one expected from Starz. But tunes like "I'll Be There," "She" (not to be confused with the Kiss favorite), and "Hold on to the Night" are power pop ditties that wouldn't have been out of place at a Raspberries session; this isn't to say that Attention Shoppers! is in a class with the Raspberries' best work. Starz's third album isn't a masterpiece, but it's competent and enjoyable. Further, Starz deserves credit for trying something different and not turning this LP into a carbon copy of Starz or Violation.
