    Jeremy Toback of Brad | Interview

    Jeremy Toback of Brad | Interview

    Dig Me Out listeners know Jeremy Toback from his time playing bass in Brad with Shawn Smith (vocals), Stone Gossard (guitars) and Regan Hagar and his appearance on that band’s first three albums: Shame (1993), Interiors (1997) and Welcome to Discovery Park (2002). During the ‘90s, he also released 2 full-lengths, Perfect Flux Thing (1997) and Another True Fiction (1999), as well as a self-titled EP (1996). After being burned out by the music industry and the major label experience, Jeremy took some time off before discovering a new outlet for his songwriting. With the help of a long-time friend, Renee Stahl, Jeremy began recording softer lullabies for young children which eventually led to peaceful reinterpretations of popular rock songs by artists ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Led Zeppelin to INXS. Renee and Jeremy’s latest single is a cover of Harry Styles’ “As It Was.” In November, Jeremy released his first new solo song in two decades, the beautifully minimalistic “Conjuring,” with an equally enthralling video.

    Swervedriver - Raise | Album Review

    Swervedriver - Raise | Album Review

    The twin guitar attack by Adam Franklin and Jimmy Hartridge on Swervedriver's 1991 debut Raise is unlike anything else under the shoegaze umbrella. While 80s dream pop was a touchstone for many of their contemporaries, the band from Oxford, England took some American influences like Dinosaur Jr., The Stooges, Sonic Youth, and Hüsker Dü into consideration. Their sound is more aggressive, more visceral, and often more exciting, leaning into the guitar's ability to shift tones quickly without relying on a wall of noise and feedback.
     
    Songs In This Episode:
    Intro - Raise
    12:10 - Sci-Flyer
    17:29 - Son of Mustang Ford
    25:15 - Feel So Real
    Outro - Deep Seat

    Gun - Swagger | Album Review

    Gun - Swagger | Album Review

    Scotland's Gun didn't make much of a dent stateside in the 80s or 90s, slightly out of tune with what was happening in mainstream. Their third album, Swagger, is aptly named, as the band is fully in control of their 80s AOR meets 90s hard rock approach. While 1994 was ground zero for grunge and alternative on US radio and MTV, Gun injected their sound with Bon Jovi big rock, Billy Idol energy, and even some Red Hot Chili Peppers funk on the questionable cover of "Word Up" by Cameo.
     
    Songs In This Episode:
    Intro - Don't Say It's Over
    13:43 - Find My Way

    Keith and Susie Ulrey of Pohgoh | Interview

    Keith and Susie Ulrey of Pohgoh | Interview

    Formed in 1994 out of punk rock roots, Pohgoh’s poppier sounds earned the Florida band comparisons to acts like Velocity Girl and Superchunk. A split single with Braid was released in 1996 and by the time Pohgoh was ready to record a full length, singer Kobi Finley had been replaced by Susie Richardson. What should have been the start of a great relationship with the newly created label Deep Elm Records wound up dissolving quickly after drummer Keith Ulrey unceremoniously quit the band after the full length, In Memory of Bab, had been recorded but shortly before a record deal was signed. Ulrey’s departure led the band to break up in 1997 though Ulrey and Richardson’s relationship developed and the former bandmates wound up getting married in 2000. In 2016, Pohgoh reunited and two years later released Secret Club on Ulrey’s New Granada Records. An opening slot on a Jawbreaker reunion tour happened in 2019 which led to the band recording another new album, Du Und Ich, which came out in October 2022.
     
    Songs In This Episode:
    Intro - Friend X (from The Emo Diaries Chapter One: What's Mine Is Yours)
    6:03 - Tell Me Truly (from In Memory of Bab)
    Outro - Try Harder (from Secret Club)

    Chris Cornell - Euphoria Morning | Album Review

    Chris Cornell - Euphoria Morning | Album Review

    Although Chris Cornell had written solo tracks for soundtracks during the Soundgarden era, it wasn't until the band had broken up that he released his proper solo debut. 1999's Euphoria Morning is both expected and unexpected, as some songs aren't far off from "Blow Up The Outside World" or "Fell on Black Days," minus the band bombast, while others showcase his phenomenal vocal talent over folk, blues, and psychedelic turns.
     
    Songs In This Episode:
    Intro - Can't Change Me
    17:15 - Moonchild
    21:50 - Wave Goodbye
    27:13 - Preaching The End Of The World
    33:38 - Disappearing One
    Outro - When I'm Down

Tremendous

Impressive. Nothing but good things to say. Hugely entertaining.

Worth every minute for a 90s alternative rock fan!

Only here would you be able to hear folk discuss some 90’s alternative rock music that you may or may not have heard of. Sure, anyone can talk about Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nirvana… but it’s definitely more fun to discover artists that may have been lost in the fray of their peers success. I have found that a lot of these underrated albums definitely deserve more attention (and maybe a little bit of your hard earned money), Tim and J definitely shine a light on these and many others.

Solid 90’s Music Podcast!

Wow, finally a podcast that allows me to nerd out on some obscure (and popular) 90’s bands and albums. Tim and J are fantastic hosts and the discord is super active. Can’t believe I’ve only just heard of this podcast! Loving it guys!
