Ignored 172: Fever to Tell by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs


Cam and Sammy (fake) travel to New York City and back to 2003 on this episode for a revisit of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs debut full-length Fever to Tell. We talk about where the YYYs slot in amongst the finest acts of “NYC in the 2000s”, when something becomes retro, how Jay Z retired a million years ago (and yet he’s still making music) and how The Who retired a hundred million years ago (and yet they’re still playing shows). The episode ends with a mini-chat about Deer Tick, which is layered with “they sound like the Replacements” comments, obvi.
