#085: Jaundice by Lucy’s Fur Coat

August 28, 2012

For episode #85, thanks to a listener suggestion we're tackling Lucy's Fur Coat, and their 1994 album, Jaundice. Although Jason admitted to purchasing the album years ago, he never got around to actually listening to it, so it's fresh and new for both.

We've often discussed the importance of a frontman who can do more than just sing in key, that personality can elevate a mediocre band. So what does Lucy's Fur Coat bring to the table? And what is on the Mars Rover iTunes playlist? Tune in to find out.

4:16 - History of the Band

11:17 - Easy

14:18 - Super

#084: No Pocky For Kitty by Superchunk

August 21, 2012

For episode #84, we're joined by fellow podcaster Kim Ware to check out her suggestion, Superchunk's 1993 album No Pocky for Kitty. Kim spent time drumming and booking shows in Wilmington, North Carolina in the 1990s, where the legendary and lesser known Chapel Hill bands regularly gigged around town.

Tim and J were both more familiar with the later Superchunk releases than the early Matador years, so how does No Pocky For Kitty stack up? Does the energetic and sometimes frantic mix of punk, power-pop and indie rock come together? And why is Majesty Shredding so hard to pronounce after one beer? Tune in to find out.
