Two summer jams as we head off on vacation (don’t worry, the show will go on). Patrick picks a tune by Malian band Songhoy Blues. Jim goes with a Grand Funk Railroad cover by the Jayhawks.
Patrick got caught up on his reading. Here are his book reports on Steve Jones’ “Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol” and Kim Gordon’s “Girl in a Band” (that band being Sonic Youth).
A few thoughts on the soundtrack that marked the beginning of college rock appreciation for millions of fledgling music lovers.
It’s a very special episode of Fan Mail Friday, focused on one very special fan, Echo Park Jimmy. Sit back and enjoy.
The fans email us. And hit us up on the social medias and so on. And then we collect a batch and respond to the comments over some drinks. This week, featuring songs by Hoops, the Replacements, the Clash, Chris Cornell, the Shins, the Damned and the B-52’s.
Covers Week on Rockin’ the Suburbs! We talk about some of our favorite songs interpreted by others, starting with re-done versions of Soundgarden and Clash tunes.
