Grendel. The Harsh Generation would’ve been a great stable if they’d been managed by “The Sinister Minister” James Mitchell.

Inspired by a conversation with DJ Major Tom of Seattle, we’re switching up our venerable Pick Five format on this week’s podcast. In this “Prompt Five” episode, we’ll each be prompting the other to react to hypothetically hearing a range of tracks in a nightclub in 2022. Which club classics prompt eyerolls from the jaded Senior Staff and which might still send us dashing to the dancefloor? How do personal and regional histories with specific bands and sub-genres shape our reflections on the sounds of years gone by? All that plus some last minute Cold Waves talk and discussion of the upcoming Minuit Machine tour.
