For episode 11 we dive deep into the Uncle Tupelo world and come up for air after a whole lot of Wilco. We planned on covering Son Volt, too, but decided to take up that  discussion on another episode so we had time for a special guest. Spencer Hackett joins us from Columbus, Ohio, to discuss the C-Bus music scene.

It's a KDFPodcast field trip! For this week we discuss an amazing week of live events. We started the week going to see the DC punk documentary Salad Days at NPR, which included a panel discussion with the filmmakers and Brian Baker. Next we saw Mac McCaughan of Superchunk and Merge Records fame play a solo show at Black Cat DC with Merge labelmates, Flesh Wounds. And, finally, we ended the week with the show of shows, The Replacements!!! After discussing those events, we take our first swipe at playing the Pitchfork game. Tune in to see what exactly that means.

Taylor and Bill look back at Britpop's heyday, 1992-1997. It's an Oasis and Blur heavy episode, but we cover a lot of other ground as well, including influences, predecessor bands and the acts that rode the Britpop wave. We do it all in a non-linear fashion.
