A fitting conclusion to the Paisley Underground retrospective. Thoroughly enjoyed this brief run of podcasts. I was not familiar with this scene nor music at all. I said this before, and I will say it again..I got the sense that this music bridged the gap between the LA punk band X and R.E.M. My favorites from this outing were the two tracks from 28th Day. Great stuff.

Cheers! and have a great holiday weekend.

Glad you enjoyed it, KB! I think you’re right about most of these bands stylistically fitting into a spectrum between X and R.E.M. — 28th Day (with their male/female duet vocals) definitely did. It seems some of the bands were closer to the X end of the spectrum, while others were closer to the R.E.M. end of things. There were some outliers, though... I’m thinking The Dream Syndicate and Thin White Rope, for instance.

Thanks for listening. Have a fun 4th!
