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 #13: Nihilism
The guys dive into where it all started for Brad and Rancid, the opening track from Let’s Go. The guys find new ways to relate to Tim and reveal some of their personal struggles with the work they’ve done in music, and reality vs. perception of music scenes from a distance. Do these communities actually exist? If so, how do they form? And will Brad and Sam ever get the name of Rancid’s seventh album right?
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.
