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 #16: Axiom
Jumping back into Rancid’s year 2000 reinvention with “Axiom,” a very strangely constructed track that is partially the best b-movie theme song ever but is probably just here to give Matt his second most famous bass solo. We dig into how catchy this album that is held up as the darkest and most hardcore in Rancid’s discography. Also Sam gets a nice surprise about an upcoming guest!
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.
