08 Nov Episode 103 – We’re After the Same Thing: Dead Horse’s Peaceful Death and Pretty Flowers
Death, humor, society? Who doesn’t love these things? Radical Research certainly does! So, it should come as no surprise that we chose the second album by Houston, Texas’ Dead Horse as the subject of our 103rd episode. Peaceful Death and Pretty Flowers, released by Big Chief Records in 1991, plunders the remotest corners of thrash, hardcore, and mangled death as fodder for its singular brand of knee-slappin’ brutality. Join us for this rather less than peaceful episode.

Radical Research is a conversation about the inner- and outer-reaches of rock and metal music. This podcast is conceived and conducted by Jeff Wagner and Hunter Ginn. Though we consume music in a variety of ways, we give particular privilege to the immersive, full-album listening experience. Likewise, we believe that tangible music formats help provide the richest, most rewarding immersions and that music, artwork, and song titles cooperate to produce a singular effect on the listener. Great music is worth more than we ever pay for it.
