About Us

Desmond and DW are on a rock n' roll odyssey to review their favorite bands' discographies album-by-album, track-by-track. You see, kids: there used to be things called albums that were a collection of songs by a single musical artist or group of artists. You may have to take our word on that.

Latest Episodes

Dropped D - Episode 05.05

EIt's been a really long time, but Dropped D is back for the time being. Desmond and Damian waste no time as the puns begin to fly inside of the first minute. Besides covering Trent Reznor's descent into EDM music on Nine Inch Nails' 2006 record With Teeth, the boys discover which of the two is more cultured in their Simpsons references, find that one of them is far more lenient than the other in NIN's new softer era, reminisce about the dark detective era of Denzel Washington's filmography, play a round of the brand new game Old or White?, and much more.

Dropped D - Episode 05.05

Dropped D - Episode 05.04

ESince it's been so long between recordings, this episode Damien and Desmond spend the whole time catching up. Topics include bad celebrity impersonations, guitar strings, music-based video games, metal album appearances, and the sobering reality of raves that Hollywood doesn't want you to know about. There is also an epic-length, four-part tangent that devolves into perhaps history's greatest recorded conversation about Bootsy Collins. And what exactly strikes Damien speechless and causes Desmond to apologize? You'll have to listen. Oh yeah! The guys also review the Nine Inch Nails double concept record The Fragile.

Dropped D - Episode 05.03

EIf you think this is going to be a good episode of Dropped D, then you might not be wrong. Come musician with us as we discuss Nine Inch Nails' second official full-length release: The Downward Spiral. But, be warned: there is math involved. Also, there's some valuable dating advice, the topic of one of the lost episodes of Dropped D is leaked, white guy rap returns, Desmond has a lot of second-favorite songs on this album, Damien does some shady Google searching, and Desmond is all about making weird noises. All this and much, much more! Let us know what you thought: droppeddcast@gmail.com, and 410.871.8192.

Dropped D - Episode 05.03

Dropped D - Episode 05.02

ESo, you've just ridden a wave of underground popularity with a record that was 100% rock-driven synth pop. What do you do? Well, if your record label wants you to capitalize on that, you say "Fuck you" and release Broken. Nine Inch Nails' 1992 sounds so radically different from what came before that it's almost a new band. Which is weird because it's all basically one guy. Sit back and enjoy the conversation of an industrial metal classic by Desmond and Damien, two former members of Pigface. Oh, and an overview of the Grammy for Best Metal Performance throughout the 1990s, AKA Megadeth: Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Bride.

Dropped D - Episode 05.01

EIt's been a year since our last episode! But wait! It's not entirely our fault. Listen to the saga of two lost episodes, high school yearbook write-ups, CD singles, and an album that is full of dichotomies. Tease up your hair and pull on your legwarmers for the first and 80s-est release from current Oscar-winning film composer Trent Reznor in a little known band he used to have called Nine Inch Nails: Pretty Hate Machine. What does Halo mean? What does it sound like when a white guy raps over Depeche Mode? Does your kitchen have any Lionel Richie-branded paraphernalia? A Bobby Brown reference? What the hell is going on?! It's been a long time, and we needed to get a lot out of our systems. You'll enjoy it. Let us know what you thought: droppeddcast@gmail.com, and 410.871.8192.

Dropped D - Intermission 02

EAfter announcing a short hiatus for the boys, Desmond thought it wouldn't be prudent to leave you guys podcastless when there's perfectly good audio sitting around the Dropped D compound! So, presented for your approval, a piece of audio first published this past April as part of Earth-2.net: The Show's episode 500 celebration of all that is Superman. Desmond and Damien break format to do an interesting survey of eight songs featuring Superman in title or content. Hear Desmond's unceasing frustration at this barrage of 90s buffoonery. More importantly, this is where the Spin Doctors nonsense really got legs. Please be patient for a new show soon! Send your questions and comments to: droppeddcast@gmail.com, or 410.871.8192.

Dropped D - Intermission 02

Dropped D - Intermission 01

EThis is not the best episode in the world; this is just an intermission. After talking about some recent punk rock releases and music-based video games, Desmond and Damien dive into the now classic 1994 Black Sabbath tribute album Nativity in Black. Hear them talk about the state of heavy metal at the time, drop hints on which of the bands are on Desmond's list of future Dropped D fodder, and discuss tribute album etiquette. Trivia time! Which member of the original Sabbath line-up does not appear on the record, but not for lack of trying? Just what does the Mustaine Signal encompass? You better flash it if Al Jourgensen is about to punch you and if you want Dave Mustaine and his taxi to drive up and save you! All this and an Internet first! You're welcome. Kick your almond habit and start listening! Send your questions and comments to: droppeddcast@gmail.com, or 410.871.8192. Follow @dreadmedia and @DamienWilkens on Twitter!

Dropped D - Intermission 01

Dropped D - Episode 04.06

EWith Album of the Year it's the end of the Faith No More coverage, for now, but put on your baggy pants, turn on your Discman, and take a journey back to 1997 with Desmond and Damien as they talk about that year in music. But this episode features what has to be the longest tangent the podcast has ever entertained, and answers many questions that probably shouldn't have been asked: Why does Damien want to be one of the band members from Hanson? What is the topic of the upcoming Weird Al parody of a Faith No More song? Is a thrash song about e-mail prophetic or ridiculous? There are more, but I refuse to fill the notes with questions. Or do I? Solos are whistled, bands are named, vinyl is discussed, surprises are had, and water is coconutted. Plus, the guys go through some feedback and pick the next band!

Dropped D - Episode 04.05

EAfter bantering on vinyl acquisitions and plans for the future of the show, Desmond and Damien dive into what is the most divisive record in Faith No More's discography thus far: King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime. And though much of this episode is actually dedicated to the coverage of the album at hand, there's still room for Shaquille O'Neal, crazy uncles, and tasty shoes. A new verb is created! The show is a little light on tangents, but the puns are played fast and loose. This week's questions: Mike Patton is a great singer and frontman, but how good of a driver is he? And what would Jim Martin think of their most metal guitar-driven album, now that their metal guitar-driven guitar player is no longer in the band? Where does a certain celebrity deserve to get stabbed? All of these and more on this episode of Dropped D! Send your questions and comments to: droppeddcast@gmail.com, or 410.871.8192.

ESo, Faith No More's Angel Dust is pretty good. Desmond is too strung out on caffeine from his own three-day binge of sleeplessness, so instead of crafting show notes, he decided to list just some of the tangents Damien and he covered: scaring vocal coaches, band names, Super Mario's underwater playlist, Adam "MCA" Yauch, Christopher Lee, the Sinestro Corps, growing old, the... perks of high school, The Spin Doctors (again), Inspector Gadget, David Hasselhoff, and many more after that, he's sure.
