Ignored 157: Original Pirate Material

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


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!).
