Pod-Castlist 006, Episode 1


In this inaugural episode of Pod-Castlist 006 Jeff and I discuss a handful of songs from bands with quirky names and that tend to go in multiple musical directions during the course of 3 or 4 minutes. As often seems to happen there is some kind of connection to Queen on the episode as well.

A sub-thread about supergroups starts in this episode and extends into episode 2 (the intention was 1 episode but it would have been over 90 minutes).

A short-lived band (and 1 of my favorites) from the early ’90s makes a prominent appearance in the second half of the episode and as is usually the case, there is a perfectly timed discovery while editing this episode (which was recorded in Oct. 2018). I must be in sync with the universe.

Enjoy the music discussed and featured on this Spotify playlist. As more episodes are added other songs we discuss will be added to the playlist.

One of the new bands mentioned in the Podcast is the Lickerish Quartet, 3 former members of that early ’90s  band.


In episode 2 we continue our conversation with a song title that references a book series but from a content perspective has nothing to do with it. It does lead us into a more in depth look at supergroups, transitioning from an Alt/Metal group to one of the biggest supergroups of all time. A fact that Jeff was unaware of.

Discussing a song by the Last Shadow Puppets that Jeff was kind of sour on may have helped to turn him around on it. And a member of one of the bands it was born from links to another supergroup that connects back to 2 previously discussed bands.

We settle into an alternative comfort zone for Jeff where he appreciates 2 songs he did not know, he talks about a song I don’t remember and find out about one of his favorite albums.

In the end, we have some fun with Morrissey and that brings back a connection to a conversation we had in the second episode of the podcast (I thought it was the first).
