Tales from Record Store Day. We start with Randall Brown of Knoxville TN, who tells us about the cool stuff he bought.
Jim and Patrick take some time off. Today, Randall Brown, singer and guitarist for Rockin’ the Suburbs house band Quartjar, and Becky talk about cool bands from Knoxville TN, including Ex-Gold and the Holifields, plus some other “musical musings.”
It’s Randall Brown’s turn to talk about Record Store Day finds. He picked up special editions by Flaming Lips and Prince, plus used records including classic Genesis. Randall’s band, Quartjar, provides the theme music for this podcast.
On this date in 1991, a monumental rock festival staged its first show. It was Lollapalooza, then a touring circus of sorts, with Jane’s Addiction, Living Colour, Ice-T and Body Count, Butthole Surfers, Rollins Band and more drawing waves upon waves of GenXers in a glorious celebration of “alternative rock.” On this episode, we reminisce about the event. Patrick saw a show on that first tour, as did our podcast bandleader Randall Brown and some listeners.
