Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
This week we explore Glam Rock in our continuing Genre busting series. Glam: Where did it come from? Why does it rock? How is Buster Poindexter related to The New York Dolls? Why is Steve's mind blown? Can Chip make up his mind about his choices? Is Poison glam? Listen and find out the answers before we do.
