Following on the heels of their intergalactic collection of 45 pile drivin’ tracks digitized from 45s, I Still Hate CD’s: Norton Records 45 RPM Singles Collection Vol. 2, Miriam at Norton has hit the mic with the brand new podcast series, “Norton’s House of Wax.” Episode 1 kicks off with an introduction to Nortonville’s creepy house on the hill where the rain never stops, and neither do the killer tunes – from gut-bustin’ garage to groovin’ R&B to roilin’ rockabilly. And as the gatecrashing gateway to NHOW’s podwave takeover, Miriam spins a bunch of the stand-out tracks on I Still Hate CD’s for our listening pleasure, including Gino Washington’s “Out Of This World,” Pleasure Seekers’ “What A Way To Die” and T. Valentine’s “Hello Lucille, Are You A Lesbian?”
This first podcast blast also includes an exclusive phone interview with bassist Jared Swilley of Black Lips, who dishes on his favorite Norton artists and one of the band’s first New York shows, which was attended by Miriam and her husband, Norton co-founder Billy Miller. Jared describes the show as “dark and dank and fun,” and also remembers a request from Miriam for his John Hancock, which he says was “probably the first time we were ever asked for an autograph”!
