#150: Magazine by Jump, Little Children

November 26, 2013
This week's Requested Review comes from a group that started as a busking Irish folk band. But Jump, Little Children, and their 1998 album Magazine, are far from their origins, combining high-energy pop rock with more introspective mid and slower tempo tunes.

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - Not Today
1:49 - History of the Band
10:13 - Violet Dreams
15:42 - Cathedrals
18:12 - Body Parts
Outro - My Guitar

#149: Grand Slam by Spiderbait

November 19, 2013
Our latest listener request takes us back down under to revisit the 1999 album Grand Slam by Spiderbait, an odd mix of power pop, metal, trip-hop, brit pop and just about every other genre from the 90s. In fact, Grand Slam feels like a 90s mix that tries to cover a variety of sounds from the decade (minus ska and nu-metal, thankfully). It's weird, it's long, and we kinda dig it. Tune in to find out why.

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - Shazam!
2:21 - History of the Band
7:49 - Shazam!
10:13 - Bessy's Last Journey
13:17 - King of the Northern
Outro - Glokenpop

#148: Neverland by Neverland

November 12, 2013
Having just explored the lone album from the Holy Barbarians, we decided to investigate further the guitar/drum combo of Patrick Sugg and Scott Garrett on their 1991 self-titled album by Neverland. On the edge of 80s glam metal and 90s alternative, Neverland isn't as easy to pin down as you might think, but do they do any of it particularly well? Tune in to find out.

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - Drinking Again
4:11 - History of the Band
14:41 - Mama Said
19:02 - For The Love
27:52 - Cry All Night
Outro - Talking To You

#147: Bandwagonesque by Teenage Fanclub

November 5, 2013
Almost 12 years to the day, Teenage Fanclub released their third, and some would say best, album Bandwagonesque. To help us dissect the album Spin choose as Album of the Year in 1991 (over titles like Nevermind, Badmotorfinger and Ten) is Andy Derer of The Andy Derer show. Power pop bands like Teenage Fanclub never reached the heights of success that grunge bands achieved, but that didn't stop a legion of Big Star followers from trying. 

Songs in this Episode:

Intro - December
5:44 - History of the Band
11:53 - What You Do To Me
34:20 - Alcoholiday
Outro - The Concept
