Jim shares some rarities from his collection (music that is unavailable or difficult to find on the streaming services). He starts with a song from Bob Mould’s underappreciated mid-’90s solo career, then plays a tune from an oft-overlooked Paul Westerberg album from 2002. (Recorded on the back deck, and featuring guest Jasper Colt.)
Avant-garde musician Scott Walker died on March 22, 2019, at age 76. Ranking Roger of the English Beat died on March 26 at age 56. We pay tribute to both of these influential musicians. (Recorded on the back deck. Jasper Colt joins in.)
Legendary session drummer Hal Blaine died on March 11, 2019, at age 90. Dick Dale, King of the Surf Guitar, died on March 16 at age 81. We pay tribute to these important figures in pop music. (Recorded on the back deck, with guest Jasper Colt.)
The stars aligned, and Jim & Patrick went to separate shows on the same night! They recount their experiences at the Royal Blood and Helium concerts in Washington, D.C.
Our friend Jasper Colt took a trip to Havana. He brought back some cigars (natch) to enjoy on the back deck, as well as a new appreciation for Cuban music.
The new Guided By Voices release, “August By Cake,” is reportedly Robert Pollard’s 100th album (with GBV or as a solo artist or in side projects). That’s a lot of idiosyncratic indie rock. Jim & Patrick discuss, with special appearances by Jasper Colt and Slicing Up Eyeball’s Matt Sebastian.
