Voltage Factory Playlist 30 June 16

One of the bands I fell really hard for in the mid-90s was Sponge. They’d had a hit with “Molly (Sixteen Candles)” and “Plowed,” at which point they were on my radar, but nothing more. Then, in 1996, the Detroit outfit put out their second album, Wax Ecstatic, and it resonated for some reason. It was just one of those time and place things I suppose. Sponge played the Tower Records in Philly during an in-store, then I saw them while I was spending some time in California at Slim’s in San Francisco that summer. I thought the record was excellent, which is why it’s featured in the Classic Album Spotlight this week on the occasion of turning 20.

Things kicked off with the Stone Roses, and the show was broadcast from NYC where I went to see them at Madison Square Garden. Brilliant time. The second segment went out to all the madness in England with the Brexit vote coming down, beginning with the Killer Cover of Motörhead taking on Sex Pistols’ “God Save the Queen.”

It’s also the last show before a short summer break, so I tried to fit a little bit of everything. New music from Crash Midnight and Filter, and some heaviness courtesy of Iceland’s Dimma and the Vintage Caravan and a doubleshot of Iron Maiden.

Here are some highlights from this week:

Classic Album Spotlight: Sponge – Wax Ecstatic (20th anniversary)
Volt Vault: The Cult – “Love Removal Machine (Peace Mix)”
Killer Cover: Motörhead – “God Save the Queen” (Sex Pistols)
Double-shot: Iron Maiden

As always, after a new show runs, I’ll be posting the wrap-up here before the rebroadcast. New editions of the Voltage Factory on VanyaRadio run every Thursday night at 8:00pm EST with an opportunity to hear it again the following Monday at 10:00pm EST. This week’s full playlist is after the jump.
