E48 - Bon Jovi - Keep The Faith

E48 - Bon Jovi - Keep The Faith

May 8, 2022

Cock rock superstars Jovi’s 5th studio album was released slap-bang in the middle of the Grunge and alternative boom. Hence, Jon Bon and the boys were no longer wild in the street chasing bad medicine all across New Jersey and instead found themselves with a more mature sound, keeping the faith and laying their potential suitors down on beds of roses.

Simon manages to tie Mr. Metal himself, Gaz down and get him to take in the album. Will he be a convert to JBJ’s love song-centric style? Will Jovi’s good ol’ rock n roll turn his head? Will there be an end to world poverty?

E47 - Radiohead - Kid A

April 24, 2022

Ok, so you know the drill here. Simon is going to fire off the reverse swing googly and It’s Boyd’s job to bat those bad boys away… or so you’d think anyway.

After OK Computer, Radiohead’s Kid A album was hotly anticipated by the music press and the record buying public alike but did it live up to expectations? Put aside your preconceptions and listen to us dissect this one.

E46 - The Smiths - The Sound Of The Smiths

E46 - The Smiths - The Sound Of The Smiths

April 11, 2022

Most commentators would agree that mega-influential Manchester band The Smiths’ star shone bright and was extinguished far too soon. Indeed, the band’s debut album was released in February 1984 but they had played their final gig before the end of ‘86. In-fighting has plagued the group even since they have split whilst constant rumours of ‘getting the band back together’ persist. 

Simon and Ning take a whistle stop tour through all of The biggest Smiths tracks put together on disc 1 of their 2008 compilation and offer their views on where The Smiths sit in the music pantheon.

E45 - System of a Down - Mezmerize

March 27, 2022

If our old mate Gaz was given the choice of a band to cover (NO SLAYER MAN!) then I guess he’d pick SOAD. Good job he’s on this episode talking shop about part one of 2005’s twin album release, Mezmerize.

Come listen and find out if the rumours are true and they did actually put all the good songs on this one.

E44 - WWF Forceable Entry 2002 (Marilyn Manson, Cypress Hill, Rob Zombie & MORE)

March 13, 2022

The year is 2002. 2 major pop-culture touchstones could have been said to be on their respective 'comedowns' from massive critical acclaim but still baring the fruits of financial success, WWF wrestling/entertainment and Nu-Metal. So what better way to build a pile of dollar-dollar than to (tag) team up and put out an musical effort reworking the entrance themes of then-WWF wrestlers by legitimate bands and artists?

Simon is once again joined by Mr. Neil Strong to pick the bones out of this slice of metal-wrestling pie. Drowning Pool, Kid Rock, Our Lady Peace & Stereomud (me neither) all bare their wares for discussion in the usual Jukeboxpod way.

E43 - The Verve - Urban Hymns

E43 - The Verve - Urban Hymns

February 27, 2022

The Verve released their third studio album Urban Hymns on 29 September 1997. It earned nearly unanimous critical praise upon its release, and went on to become the band's best-selling release and one of the biggest selling albums of the year but are we in agreement with the critics? Does the album hold up? Is there any substance aside from the big singles? Has Richard Ashcroft ever smiled?

Simon and Boyd head back to the late nineties to review said album in the jukeboxpod style. This is a good one.

E42 - KERRANG! 2 The Album (2001) ft. Slipknot, Weezer, Papa Roach, Nickelback & more

February 13, 2022

Absolute paid-by-the-word motormouth Little Si is welcomed back to the pod to discuss the second compilation put out by Kerrang! in 2001. 
Whilst we try to keep discussion focused on the Foo Fighters, Sum 41, Marilyn Manson et al, matters soon turn to many topics including but not limited to Christmas dinners, the new Scream film, Eminem’s Mariah diss track, the plight of Prince Andrew and working out if Papa Roach/ Linkin Park was the Nu-metal Take That/East 17.

E41 - Alice in Chains - Dirt

January 30, 2022

Time to get down (in a hole) with possibly the most underrated of Seattle’s early 90’s grunge big 4 quartet, Alice in Chains.

Simon and Boyd, who have both been long fans of Alice, take a look at the band’s sophomore effort and try to decipher the lyrics of mr’s Stayley and Cantrell.

E40 - UK Chart Top 20 Countdown 17/7/1999

January 16, 2022

We ease into the new year with a trip down memory lane back to the summer of 1999. A place where the UK charts were inhabited by such mega big-hitters as S Club 7, Shanks & Bigfoot and The Vengaboys. Can we find any actual decent stuff knocking around at the end of the old millennium though?

E39 - Dance/House music SPECTACULAR! (Pete Tong, Daft Punk, Underworld, Prodigy & MORE)

E39 - Dance/House music SPECTACULAR! (Pete Tong, Daft Punk, Underworld, Prodigy & MORE)

December 22, 2021

Full disclosure, both Simon & Neil are full of ‘festive spirit’ in this episode. Be warned.

In 2012 the BBC decided to commemorate the then 20 year career of one Mr. Pete Tong on their radio platforms by polling the great British public for their favourite dance records put out during Tong’s tenure.

We begin by looking back at Mr. We Continue’s work but quickly descend into a full-on drunken tune-fest. Basement Jaxx, Armand van Helden, Josh Wink, The Chemical Brothers and lots, lots more get an airing.

Enjoy the last show of the year and we’ll be back soon
