See Hear podcast Episode 5 - The Phantom of the Paradise

May 26, 2014 @ 5:11 pm

Episode 5 of See Hear is ready for your earholes.

Here’s a recipe:

Take a large cup of Phantom of the Opera.

Pour in a generous helping of Faust.

Sprinkle in a dash of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Add just a pinch of Psycho and Woodstock.

Throw in some over-the-top hammy horror, a thuggish doo-wop group, a man called Beef, and songs that pastiche the history of rock to that point and voila you have…….

Phantom of the Paradise.

This month, the See Hear Crew discuss Brian De Palma’s 1974 rock musical that some believe is the REAL midnight movie experience over its more famous rival the Rocky Horror Picture Show. We discuss the film, the songs written by its star (Paul Williams), its influence on Seinfeld (!!!) and a ton of other tangents. Once again, we have a heap of fun and we hope you join us and enjoy the ride.
