Jim & Patrick go through their massive fan mail and talk about the Black Crowes, Fleetwood Mac, DYGL, a beer song and more.
Yesterday, we talked about great drum songs. Today, we talk about songs we love that have no drums at all (what?). Drummer pal Bobby Padavick joins again — and may be scarred by this discussion.
Our favorite drumming couple, Bobby and Renee Padavick, talk about songs that are defined by their drum parts. (Jim & Patrick make picks too.) This episode will rock your world.
Bobby Week continues, and our friend Mr. Padavick has been eager to talk about the greatness of Thin Lizzy for a long time.
Our good friend Bobby Padavick makes his first appearance on Rockin’ the Suburbs. (Some of you may recall Bobby as the drummer from Night Streets.) But even better, Bobby’s wife Renee also joins in the fun. And she’s a drummer too! They talk about their musical influences on each other.
What makes a perfect pop song? Jim discusses, Patrick fights bronchitis (and loses).
Every January, our friend Tug Baker stops takes a break from new music and instead does a deep dive into established artists’ work. This year, he listened to a lot of Funkadelic and Kate Bush.
Our friend Tug Baker joins via Skype and recounts the sordid tales of his days playing in the Placemats (a tribute to the Replacements). The beer was flowing in the basement for this one.
Patrick discusses books he’s read recently: “Ray Davies: A Complicated Life” by Johnny Rogan and “Clothes, Clothes, Clothes. Music, Music, Music. Boys, Boys, Boys” by Viv Albertine of the Slits.
Indie icons the Feelies have a new album out! Jim & Patrick discuss the long and meaningful career of the jangly New Jerseyans.
