    EP198: Excel "Split Image"

    EP198: Excel "Split Image"

    Excel’s debut is rarely mentioned along with the classic Crossover albums, a list that includes Suicidal Tendencies' “Join the Army,” COC’s “Animosity,” DRI’s “Dealing With It” and Agnostic Front’s “Cause For Alarm” and it's hard to understand why.   It’s a perfect blend of Metal guitars and Punk vocals with personal lyrics about how f****d up the world is an how helpless we are to fix it.  Venice Beach native Patrick Sweeney joins to help us crack the code of this under appreciated masterpiece.

    EP197: Hammered Hulls "Careening"

    EP197: Hammered Hulls "Careening"

    It’s hammer time in DC!  After fronting a trio of legendary Dishord bands, The Untouchables, The Faith and Ignition Alec MacKaye had more than earned his status as American Punk Rock royalty and could have certainly rested on his laurels.  Instead, he’s back with a new project, Hammered Hulls that is more than worthy of his legacy.  Their debut LP sounds like classic Discord in all the best ways and the recently released Careening is getting better with each listen.

    EP196: Mercyful Fate "Melissa"

    EP196: Mercyful Fate "Melissa"

    How much of our love of Mercyful Fate is based on nostalgia versus the fact that they were an incredibly innovative, talented band with great songs?  As a relative newbie to the band Rod helps us answer the question as we dive deep into their classic first LP while touching on their equally great follow up Don’t Break the Oath, discuss the conviction in the bands approach and debate how many riffs is too many riffs.

    EP195: OFF! "Free LSD"

    EP195: OFF! "Free LSD"

    Keith Morris and Dimitri Coats are back and this time with a brand new rhythm section.  Now four LPs in, the newly constructed quartet sounds completely revitalized.  The familiar OFF! punch is still there but now with new layers, textures and moods thrown into the mix.  Free LSD might not be the bands best album but it’s pretty damn great right now.

    EP194: Final Conflict "Ashes to Ashes"

    EP194: Final Conflict "Ashes to Ashes"

    Whether Discharge is simply one of Final Conflicts primary influences or their entire reason for being may be debatable but what isn’t is how great a hardcore record Ashes to Ashes is.  It’s decidedly Punk Rock but could not exist without its Metal trimmings.  It has all the attitude and urgency of the former without sacrificing any of the aggression or heaviness of the latter.  Regardless who Final Conflict were biting,  Ashes to Ashes is a stone cold classic of the genre that sounds as great today as it did in 1988.

    EP193: Big Black "Songs About F*****g"

    EP193: Big Black "Songs About F*****g"

    Mike notes that all the songs on the Chicago trio's second LP are about “terrible people doing terrible things”  while Rod describes the albums sonics as the sound of chewing on tinfoil" and Glenn astutely observes “this album should really be called Songs About Getting F****d.”  They’re all right.

Great pod

Please do a Manchester version of great cities:

Stone roses, joy division, oasis and so much ore more material to work with.

Magnum Steve.I. ,

Excellent podcast

I’ve been listening to this pod for the better part of a year and it keeps getting better. Mike & Rod (and Glen when he’s on) offer unique insight to some great music. I’m partial to the punk/hardcore episodes, but still find something interesting in all of their discussions. My particular favs are the Naked Raygun and Fugazi episodes. When can we finally get one dedicated to Hüsker Dü?
