#192: Ruby Vroom by Soul Coughing

Ex-Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty has a new solo record out, so we decided to revisit his former band’s first release, 1994’s Ruby Vroom. One of us rated this a worthy album, and one of gave it a decent single, so it’s fair to say we don’t see eye to eye on this album.

Songs in this Episode:

  • Intro - Bus to Beelzebub
  • 4:22 - History of the Band
  • 15:20 - Casiotone Nation
  • 19:34 - True Dreams of Wichita
  • 23:42 - Is Chicago, Is Not Chicago/I Wish
  • 31:03 - City of Motors
  • Outro - Screenwriter’s Blues

#191: Faithless Street by Whiskeytown

With a new solo album about to be released, we decided to revisit where it all started for Ryan Adams with the 1995 debut release Faithless Street from his band Whiskeytown. Steeped in the alternative country that rose to prominence thanks to bands like Uncle Tupelo and The Jayhawks, there is plenty to like about a band forging its own path while still staying ground in traditional country rhythms and themes. Our discussion is occasionally derailed by Ryan Adams “the personality” as much as the singer and songwriter, and the end result is clashing viewpoints on this record. One of thought this was worthy album start to finish. Who didn’t. Tune in to find out.

Songs in this Episode:

  • Intro - Drank Like a River
  • 8:00 - History of the Band
  • 16:06 - Drank Like a River
  • 18:51 - Too Drunk to Dream
  • 21:06 - Matrimony
  • 29:12 - Revenge
  • Outro - If He Can’t Have You

#190: Subliminal Plastic Motives by Self

We travel back to 1995 to revisit the debut album Subliminal Plastic Motives by Self. Chock full of production goodness, S.P.M. is a dense, inventive record with a power pop heart, which is both a plus and minus. Self aren’t afraid to mix-up genres, sometimes within a single song, but is there too much of a good thing? Tune in to find out.

  • Intro - Borateen
