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 #22: Things to Come
This week, Brad picks a b-side from the Life Won’t Wait era, and the guys wonder what the decision making process was like when putting the album together. Why did a song this good get cut? Was it the right call? How many actual versions exist? Then they dive deep into what collecting b-sides used to mean and how that concept has completely gone out the door.
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.
