'No Such Thing As A Fish' is the first UK podcast to get a vinyl release
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is to make an exclusive cameo appearance on the 12-inch vinyl edition of the QI podcast, No Such Thing As A Fish.
The podcast is created by ‘The QI Elves’, who research for the quiz panel show hosted by Stephen Fry. No Such Thing As A Fish is the first ever UK podcast to get a vinyl release, and will be out on Alcopop! Records on November 20.
Jack Clothier, managing director of Alcopop! Records, said: “It’s been such a joy to work with QI and the Elves on this release, and we’re really excited to be the first to champion this new generation of podcast rock stars.”
Alcopop! hit headlines earlier this year upon the release of a tongue-in-cheek silent 7-inch record named ‘The Wit And Wisdom Of Nigel Farage’ in the run up to the 2015 General Election.
Corey Taylor recently spoke out about bands who are ashamed of their own success, calling them “elitist to the point of pricky”, and speaking of his pride in his own band’s fanbase.
The outspoken frontman told Las Vegas-based publication the Review Journal that if bands didn’t want success, they shouldn’t bother playing publicly in the first place.
“I always get so upset when I talk to some of these dudes in some of these bands — and I won’t mention any names — but they’re just so elitist to the point of pricky,” Taylor said. “They just have this air about them where it’s like nothing matters.”
He added: “They’re almost ashamed of their success. And it’s like then why did you leave your basement? You know? Like why did you start playing shows live? You could’ve been a pretentious assfuck in your basement, and just made your own music, for yourself. It’s all a con.”
