Art of Rock with Kosh & Friends


He has but one name, Kosh, but he is one of the most celebrated and influential album-cover artists EVER. Chances are you already own several pieces of art created by Kosh. Kosh is from Los Angeles by way of London. He’s got hundreds of album covers to his credit, and if Kosh didn’t do that cover, well...not to worry, he knows who did, and he’ll introduce you. And by the way: If you are a student of the visual arts, or just somebody who appreciates them, you can pick up a lot from listening to Art of Rock. Great, great storytelling, it’s candid, sometimes a little raunchy. Kosh was right there for a lot of Rock history, and he’ll tell you about ALL of it. Proud part of Pantheon - the podcast network for music lovers.

Continuing with our Holidays celebration, this edition of Art of Rock, our host Kosh brings into Aftermaster studio his dear friend director, comedian and actor and Academy Award winning writer, Adam McKay.

Adam has a new film out today called “Vice”. The story of Dick Cheney (played by Christian Bale), an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.

In 2016 Adam won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the film The Big Short. He is founder of the comedy website and production company Funny or Die. He is a founding member of the Upright Citizen Brigade comedy troupe and spent six years on the writing staff of Saturday Night Live from 1995-2001. He has written and/or directed many features including Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights, The Other Guys (all with frequent collaborator Will Ferrell) and most recently The Big Short and now Vice.

Today Kosh and Adam spend most of the hour talking music of course and how Adam uses this to great effect in his films. Enjoy a Christmas snack and take a listen as these two old friends break it down. Then go out and see Adam’s most recent film or settle in with a yule log for some old time Netflix fare by him and his friends.
