Hideout: Bibliodiscoteque #2.1

The Mission

Bibliodiscoteque believes in the power of stories. Be they the words laid down by the famous, the infamous, the cult, or the mundane, stories are humanity’s greatest invention. Each month Bibliodiscoteque releases a podcast creating rock ‘n’ roll soundtracks for its favorite authors and novels.

We also review the latest in Noir, Science Fiction, Rock 'n' Roll, Punk, and Comics. Basically, if we like it, we review it

Martin Millar

Martin Millar is a class act.

I say this with no sense of irony or sarcasm.

I took a chance for the second podcast and decided to send out an invitation. I simply asked what four bands/tracks might Mr. Millar wish to hear on a podcast in his honor.

Not only did I get a great email in reply, but a music lesson as well. Not to mention he managed to use the greatest word in the English language: Ethos (more on that another time).

I grew up in the 80’s and punk was a life support for the suburban ills of the mundane and taciturn. It helped me break from what I viewed as a mold and helped my find a voice. As I grew older and my music tastes changed, I found myself reluctant to go back and explore certain bands and sounds.

One such beast was Led Zepplin. To be honest, and possibly rude to the subject of this podcast’s dedication, they meant nothing to me. I understand Jimmy Page is a fantastic guitarist with a rich background, but they never moved me. Until I read Martin Millar’s Suzy, Led Zepplin, and Me.

The opening chapters of Millar’s book generated in me an excitement for a band I was never excited about. When a fictional character’s excitement becomes your own, folks, that is the brand of capable writer.

Martin Millar’s writing has introduced me to punk fairies, vain poets, Fire Goddesses, and a failed sorcerer turned private eye. His writing is vivid and raw and his humor quick and well timed. The novels are what punk albums used to be: bastions against the usual and predictable. One day I wish to see him heralded as the one true great punk writer.

In this month’s first installment, I present you with music inspired and directed by Martin Millar. From the Sex Pistols’ use of A Led Zepplin riff to T-Rex’s use of a Howlin’ Wolf song these are the songs I hear when I read his work.

Thanks for the help Mr. Millar and I hope you enjoy.

Oh – as I mention in the podcast, I wanted to hype his new book, Curse of the Wolf Girl, but had too many songs to work with to hightlight both author and work.

So, there is a part two (a blues, country, rockabilly, and garage tribute to all things lupine) in two weeks.

Rage Well, Erik
