Show Notes:
  • The opening bit was taken from the educational film "Helping Johnny Remember". Ashleigh Nankivell did and hilarious re-edit of it that can be found here.
  • I forgot to say anything about The Sticks when I played them on this episode. They are a trio from Brighton, U.K. and list The Keggs as one of their influences. What more do you need to know, to know that they are worth lending your ears to?
  • Listen to White Mystery perform a great live set on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T. or download it from the Free Music Archive.
  • On the show, I falsely said that "Teenage Jerk" was by Dirty Sweet. It's actually by the Austin, TX band The Dirty Sweets and can be found on their "Bubblegum Damaged" CD on Rip-Off Records. Their guitarist now plays in the band Love Collector which is also worthy of your listening time.
  • Here's a site that shows you how to perform The Swanton Bomb as made famous by pro-wrestler Jeff Hardy. You'll most likely break your back or cripple your little brother doing it, but give it a try anyways. It will give you a good story to tell when people ask why you can't sit up straight on a bar stool.
