Ep.21: Keefer Madness

It’s time to roll up some of that ol’ “wacky tobaccy” because in today’s show we’re reviewing the KC drug anthem “Intervention.” All eyes are on Chris (aka Keef Herbin, Obscure the Model Student, etc.) as we pick apart his rhymes and the crazy true story that inspired them. We also lend an ear to the Proxy remix of the track and play a snippet of its Violent Femmes-sampling sequel, “The Reckoning.” Join us?

Ep.20: Is It Pronounced “Nicolas Cahj” or “Nicolas Cage”?

We’re off to the races! It’s our 20th episode, officially, and the third ep of our season-long exploration of KC’s first album, We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It. What a time to be alive…

Today we look at the track “I’m Like the Following,” which dares to ask… what’s the correct way to pronounced Nicolas Cage’s last name? We also discuss whether the bands White Town and Black Kids are problematic. (“Your Woman” is a banger!)

Plus: An inexplicable dive into the group’s love of… Dashboard Confessional? Ew.

Ep.18: We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It (Season Preview)

The time has finally arrived. In this episode, we kick off a season-long exploration of the Cuzzins’ first full-length rap album, We’ll Burn That Bridge When We Come To It (2007). We take a cursory look at the 13 tracks that make up the record, from the aptly titled “Minute-Long Rap Song” to the title track, which takes some hard swings at Sarah Palin (remember her?). We also introduce the guy who motivated us to make We’ll Burn in the first place… the Puff Daddy to our L.O.X… Splattercat Records founder Jon Carpus. Join us?
