Episode 14: Big Star, “#1 Record”

April 17th, 2020

Episode 14: Lacking commercial success but packing a big punch in terms of influence, Big Star is one of rock's most legendary cult bands. You may not hear them on the radio much, but you most certainly hear their impact on later bands and much of indie rock. This episode finds us embroiled in the midst of an empassioned debate over their music — specifically, their first album, #1 Record. Join us and see where you stand in all of this — and please let us know your thoughts by leaving your comments at ReselectMusic.com.

NOTE: This episode was recorded several months before (and the intro not long before) the coronavirus issues currently affecting all of us, hence the lack of any mention therein. Our best wishes go out to all of you, for whatever way you may be affected: stay healthy and hang in there!

Episode 13: The Sex Pistols, “Never Mind the Bollocks…”

April 4th, 2020

Episode 13: With this episode of Reselect, Dave, Eric, and Sarah begin their foray into album-centric episodes, moving away from the longer artist-centric episodes. (Although there will be one more of those coming not too far down the road.) The first album we tackle is Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, the album that really deserves a lot of credit for launching the culture of punk, if not the music itself (the Ramones got there first). But the Sex Pistols took punk to a new place and can in many ways be said to have changed rock music in their short existence. Join us as we take a closer look at their sole studio album.

NOTE: This episode was recorded well before (and the intro not long before) the coronavirus issues currently affecting the world in terrible ways, hence the lack of any mention therein. Our best wishes go out to all of you, for whatever way you may be affected: stay healthy and hang in there!
