Here’s what you may have missed on my May 2020 episodes, beginning with May 1st, which included “Endless” by the always awesome Happy Hollows:

One of the highlights of the May 22 episode was the moody synth vibe of “Split Second” by Skeleton Head:

And the May 29th episode included “Daddy” by Man On Man, which features a video that YouTube found too scandalous to keep up, so you can only watch it on vimeo. Man On Man is a project by Roddy of Faith No More with his husband Joey.

FUTURE FLASHBACKS episode highlights February 2020

In case you’ve missed any recent episodes of the show, you can listen to them on Mixcloud or PodOmatic. And tune in for a new episode every Friday at nine EST on flashback alternatives.

Here’s some of what’s been happening on Future Flashbacks.

On the February 14th show, Future Unlimited gave the biggest Simple Minds hit of the 80s a much darker vibe…

While Raf Rundell’s funky fun “Sweet Cheeks” has the totally opposite feel:

I’m obsessing over the new Green Day song, so February 21st I played “Oh Yeah!,” which samples Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me(Oh Yeah)”.

Electronic Fair makes the Gene Loves Jezebel fave “Desire” a dance track:

And on February 28, I dug into Avril Lavigne’s catalog to find her duet with Marilyn Manson. She even does Marilyn Manson drag in this video…

And I played “The Best” by AWOLNATION, only to find the video takes place on Halloween. Awesome.

FUTURE FLASHBACK HIGHLIGHT, FEBRUARY 7, 2020 episode

On this episode of the show, I played A Mars Argo song…

and a Poppy song back-to-back…

Their scandalous Internet story with the producer/boyfriend they have in common was turned into the fictionalize horror film My Valentine on Hulu. I blog about the film on my horror site. It’s such a bizarre and psychotic story, and if you don’t know anything about it, the video below really sums it up. And watch My Valentine on Hulu just for the fun of it.
