Episode 12: Cosmic American Music

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009


Country-rockin’ the nudie suit.

Alt-country, americana, country rock, or Gram Parsons’ famous description, “Cosmic American Music”. Call it what you will, but there is no disputing the importance of country and western music in the broad spectrum of rock n’ roll then and now. In a special episode of Stuck Between Stations, the guys investigate the diverse sounds of what may be loosely defined as alternative country spanning the roots of the genre(s) in Leadbelly’s 1935 recording of “Irene” to Ryan Adams & the Cardinals’ 2005 track, “Hard Way to Fall”. Special attention will be paid to the iconic Gram Parsons, whose contributions to this genre cannot be overestimated. We’ll also hear choice cuts from The Rolling Stones, Uncle Tupelo, Neil Young, and The Replacements.

Here’s a direct link to this week’s show:

Today is Tuesday, January 13, 2009, which means it’s Wayne Coyne’s 48th birthday.

It also happens to be our 10th episode here at Stuck Between Stations and we’ve got a great lineup of songs queued up for your listening pleasure this fine day. Things kick off with a bang with T. Rex’s primal glam rock joyride, “Metal Guru”, and don’t let up with killer tracks from The Hentchmen, Sonic Youth, and The Black Lips. Stay tuned for a selection of folkier fare from the likes of Gordon Lightfoot and the Grateful Dead, not to mention a band otherwise known as “Formerly New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo.”
