Welcome to Love That Album podcast 49.
Before I started the podcast, I was writing blog articles about albums I love. Back in May 2011, I wrote about my passion for the 1989 album from Weddings Parties Anything “The Big Don’t Argue”. I really felt that this deserved a return visit via the podcast. I am joined by LTA regular and host of Sitting In A Bar In Adelaide, Michael Pursche to discuss this incredible record.
The threatening cover, a reference to the song A Tale They Won’t Believe really grabs your attention before you’ve played any of the music. Once the needle hits the grooves, we hear lots of great stories, worthy of any great author. Via songwriter Mick Thomas, WPA tells us stories of livelihoods destroyed, cannibalism, the loss of idealism and enjoying a sunny Sydney day with barely enough money for a beer. Not just great stories, but fantastic memorable tunes that make you want to mosh or cry in your beer. I went to many many WPA shows and it felt like a sense of community when you sang with complete strangers about holding down cooked human flesh to survive.
We are joined once again by Eric Reanimator for his Album I Love segment to discuss the album Poison Love by cowpunks, Blood On The Saddle. Another great segment for yer earholes.
