Episode 6 - Grunge
Fri 3rd Oct, 2008
Two blokes discuss Dickless, Green River, The Monkeywrench, The Buck Pets, The Screaming Trees, and The Fluid. They also talk nonsense about what grunge means without coming to any definite conclusions.
Your comments are welcome - so email us with those. And we'll see you next time.
Here's what we played:
Dickless - "Saddle Tramp"(from The Grunge Years - A Subpop Copliation, 1992)
Green River - "Searchin'"(from Motor City Madness, 1988)
Screaming Trees - "What Goes On"(from Heaven and Hell Volume: A Tribute To The Velvet Underground, 1992)
The Buck Pets - "Iron Cock"(from The Buck Pets, 1994)
The Monkeywrench - "Angelhead"(from Clean As A Broke Dick Dog, 1992)
The Fluid - "Closet Case"(from Glue, 1990)
Notes & Errata:
The cover art is photoshopped from the cover of The Carpenters album Singles 1969 - 1981.
The Dickless double a side single was 'I'm A Man' / 'Saddle Tramp'.
The toga reference should of course be to John Belushi, not his brother James.
Nirvana's first single was a cover of 'Love Buzz' by Shocking Blue.
Searchin' appeared on the Glitterhouse album Motor City Madness, it is now available on the Green River Rehab Doll / Come On Down two-fer CD.
Youtube has The Stone Roses' infamous Late Show appearance of which we speak.
Sugar's 'Copper Blue' was released in 1992.
Nirvana's 'I Hate Myself And I Want To Die' appears on the b-side of Pennyroyal Tea and on the compilation album The Beavis and Butt-Head Experience (1993).
Northside's Chicken Rhythms was indeed killed by Nirvana's Nevermind.
Mudhoney's Superfuzz Big Muff came out in 1988.
Charles Peterson's photography is well worth a look. It can be seen here: www.charlespeterson.net.
