084 No Pocky For Kitty by Superchunk

No Pocky For Kitty

Release year
Laura Ballance

Does the energetic and sometimes frantic mix of punk, power-pop, and indie rock come together on Superchunk's album No Pocky For Kitty?

Author & Special Guests

For episode #84, we're joined by fellow podcaster Kim Ware to check out her suggestion, Superchunk's 1991 album No Pocky for Kitty. Kim spent time drumming and booking shows in Wilmington, North Carolina in the 1990s, where the legendary and lesser known Chapel Hill 90s rock bands regularly gigged around town.

Tim and J were both more familiar with the later Superchunk releases than the early Matador years, so how does No Pocky For Kitty stack up? Does the energetic and sometimes frantic mix of punk, power-pop and indie rock come together? And why is Majesty Shredding so hard to pronounce after one beer?
