With the football season in its opening weeks, this show appropriately combines the wizards’ two major obsessions. Not only do we get a number of football related songs, but also some blistering guitar solos, as well as mention of musical dreams of eggs, turds and forgotten front men.

Suitably* presented in what can best be described as a podcast of two halves, you can hear it all here and here and there and there:

Turn away now if you don’t want to know what’s coming up. Otherwise, here’s what we played:

  1. Courting – Football
  2. Guided By Voices – Party Rages On
  3. The Wave Pictures – Cabwaylingo
  4. Wladyslaw Trejo – Movida
  5. Throwing Muses – Backroad
  6. The Hush – Grey
  7. Soccer96 – I Was Gonna Fight Fascism
  8. Guided By Voices – Peep-Hole
  9. Joe Gibbs & The Professionals – Hully Gully Rock
  10. The Chills – Familiarity Breeds Contempt

The physicality:

Songs of Jason Molina

*actually due to Garbanzo’s new fangled recording device and not, in any way, by design. As if.

    Another great pod(s), which begs the question, was Rebel Rikkit the secret technical ‘wizard’ of the whole caper…? I really enjoyed the Wladyslaw Trejo track which reminded my of Suicide. Always great to hear some Chills, but I’d say the Submarine Bells shout was highly controversial – Brave Words tops it for me

    • It appears so. Yes, that WT EP is great and highly recommended. You are, of course, wrong about The Chills. Although tbf there isn’t a Chills album I don’t like. Thanks for listening!
