The 11th Hour is a podcast where two dudes in their 40s discuss a different Rancid song each week. They reflect on their lives, their (inexplicable) fandom, and why certain parts of our youth continue to hold meaning beyond simple nostalgia. Is it a midlife crisis or honest self-reflection? Join us on a journey to the end and find out. Follow along on Twitter or Instagram and find The 11th Hour on your favorite streaming/podcast app (Stitcher, Apple, Spotify, etc) – and, of course, always on Foxy Digitalis.
Episode #10: Backslide
Life Won’t Wait returns to give us this banger of a soul rave-up. Sam is continuing to wear Brad down on the cult of LWW! Who knew there was a great Rancid song with horns with nary an upstroke or ‘pickitup’ in sight. Are they talking about being stuck in a stylistic rut? The puritanism of punk rock? The soul leach of L.A.? …or is it just another story about junkies not given a fair shake at a good life?
Brad Rose is the the principal writer and editor-in-chief of Foxy Digitalis, an online music magazine and has run various DIY record labels for the last 30 years. Sam Melancon runs Debacle Records, an experimental record label out of Seattle, WA.
