Ignored 157: Original Pirate Material

In Podcast on September 5, 2017 at 3:27 am

Streets.001

We take things back to the early months of 2002 and Original Pirate Material, the debut full-length from grime-y UK artist The Streets. A singularly unique time capsule of a time/place, Cam and Sammy look to unpack where this album fits in the annals of British music and why the gloomy, paranoid aura of this album still feels semi-fresh more than 15 years later. We also ponder why Mike Skinner took such a huge step back commercially within a few albums and shoot down any suggestion that he was the Eminem of Britain. We close things out with a random chat about Ken Burns’ 10-part PBS documentary on jazz and whether Neii Young’s “Powderfinger” sounds like a song that should’ve been written by The Band (spoiler: It toally does!).

Not to be confused with Michael Jackson’s dad (or the disgraced baseball player), Joe Jackson is the prolific British singer/songwriter and subject matter for S3, E5 of the podcast. His 1979 debut Look Sharp! is full of songs that are both bratty and precocious. Cam and Sammy unpack this era of UK songwriters stuck between New Wave and elsewhere with Sammy sharing why this album never gets old and why Joe Jackson is one of his fave all-time live acts. The guys also talk (again) about the deep impact of Much Music and the New Music plus briefly touch on how Joe Jackson looked kinda weird sometime. The episode closes with some chit-chat about Chris Stapleton, John Coltrane and which Mogwai albums feature the best noisy noises.
