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.
