End of the month. November Scene Show. Annual Covers episode. Yep, it's here, the thing you're all waiting for, me playing nothing but cover songs for an entire 2+ hours. And it's our 250th show, so that's certainly something. Been at this a while. Glad to have you all here.
For Patreon folks who heard my Monday show and thought I sounded like shit on a cracker, I am indeed finally feeling myself again and am happy to bring you this week's show...
Here's a fun show for those of who are beset by weather...
First and foremost, I want to send positive energy towards my friend Thorsten Wingenfelder, who is currently laid up in the hospital, and having to reschedule his solo shows that were scheduled for this month. Hopefully it's nothing too major and he'll be back on his feet again soon, but I wanted to kick off this episode with a big block of his stuff (and stuff he's done with his brother), so he knows I'm wishing him a speedy recovery.
Secondly, the scene show I did two weeks ago on Creation Records was probably one of the biggest undertakings I've ever done for the show, and I had way too much stuff to fit in, even with the three hours time. So consider a good part of this show excess stuff from that episode.
The first part of it is about American bands that Creation helped put out albums, including one of my favorites, Bob Mould's band Sugar.
The second, larger, part is sort of a tangent inspired by that scene show. When I was doing my homework, I was boggled by how much the band Oasis went through membership changes, and how many other bands they sort of stole from to fill in their missing members. So I charted that whole history in a block that takes up a bit more than half of this episode. If you're one of those people who skips through me talking, there's a big block of it (which I warn you of) but for those of you who love weird obscure musical stories, this one's a doozy.
Back to a normal show format next week!
GET WELL SOON THORSTEN!
Because of the size of the scene show last week, there was no room to do a show this week, so I took the week off. If you find yourself jonesing for more show, consider signing up for our Patreon, where for just $5 a month, you get an additional show each and every week, without fail.
