Peach & Black Podcast double whammy for January 2010! Two shows, 1 day!

For all our loyal listeners we bring to you a second episode for your entertainment, this time we discuss something altogether different: How did MC, Toejam, Captain and Playa all become Prince fans? We talk about our past, first time hearing Prince, what led to our appreciation of the music and much more, it gets a bit rowdy - that's for sure!

Hello listeners,

Here we are again with an album review! We discuss all things 'The Rainbow Children', and because we just couldn't stop talking about it we have recorded two parts, hope you enjoy part one!

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Batman Review!

August 23rd, 2009

batman3.jpgHi Everyone,

It is time to go back to 1989 and check out our Batman Review. In light of the 20th Anniversary of the Batman album in 2009, we tackle this very interesting project!

 

Enjoy the show and then ask yourself - have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

MJF Review

July 30th, 2009

We are back with another show, this time we talk MJF 2009.

Listen and enjoy. Prince gave one of his best ever concert performances (in my humble opinion), and we talk about Prince & The Band tearing it up at the MJF 2009. What a setlist, what arrangements, what an atmosphere, what amazing 2 shows in one night!

Michael Jackson (and Prince) Show

July 3rd, 2009

Hello Everyone,

Firstly, RIP to Michael Jackson. We have certainly lost one of the greats.

Secondly, we have recorded a somewhat impromtu show after MJ's passing, discussing his career and including specific commentary related to Prince as well. This convo goes many places, just our thoughts about the King of Pop. He has left the world under tragic circumstances, but one thing is for certain - his legacy will continue on into eternity. Enjoy.

Musicology Review

June 17th, 2009

Well it has been almost a month, some of us have been away and others busy but we are now all back and ready to give you all what you have hopefully been patiently waiting for - more Peach & Black Podcast!

So, since we have already reviewed the Lotusflow3r project for the most part, here is another episode of the show, where we take you all back to 2004 and the year that Prince came back into the commercial pop scene with a vengeance, Musicology!

Enjoy, and we will be back sometime in June or early July with a new episode doing something that we haven't really done thus far - a show not based around reviewing any albums, and instead a heated discussion about a specific aspect of Prince's music and career, coming soon!!!!!!

It gets slightly heated, so strap yourself in and get ready for another wild ride, thoughts on Lotusflow3r - the Psychadelic Rock-Pop album of the year!  (At least I think it is). Enjoy!

Lotusflow3r - First Impressions Podcast!

April 5th, 2009

Hello everyone!

The Lotusflow3r Impressions Podcast is now online! The discussion focuses on our first impressions of all 3 new Prince albums (including the Bria project), the new website, Leno appearances, live shows and much much more, so download and enjoy!

Very exciting times to be a Prince fan right now, especially because the music is really stacking up and things are moving fast! What's gonna happen next? A tour? A residency? A documentary? Who knows, but one thing is for sure (and I hope most of you will agree) - Prince is on fire with this new material, a milestone in the career of one of the 20th and 21st century's greatest composers and pop artists, IMHO.

Boom!
