Zach and Dave recommend you support your local record-store rather than buying from some huge corporation or online retailer. But maybe you should wait until the new vinyl re-issue of Ten is available.

Episode #08 “What’s Our Motivation Here?” / Album: “Unplugged” by Alice in Chains

In this episode Zach and Dave discuss the album “Unplugged” by Alice in Chains which was first broadcast by MTV on May 28, 1996. A live album of the performance was released in July 1996.

We love Alice in Chains (as you know by now) and feel this recording looms large alongside the three LPs and two EPs of the classic iteration of the group.

You can watch the full performance here on youtube.

Dave talks about Greg Prato‘s book “Grunge is Dead” which is another great book on the scene.

My Seattle Mixtape is taking a little break for a few weeks. We’ll reconvene later in the Autumn with new episodes, new special guests and more quintessential Seattle rock music.

Episode #07 “Saxaphone Prejudice” / Album: “Badmotorfinger” by Soundgarden

In this episode Zach and Dave discuss the album “Badmotorfinger” by Soundgarden which was released in 1991 and was the first to feature Ben Shepherd on bass.

We had already recorded an episode about this album but hadn’t released it prior to the death of Soundgarden singer and founding member Chris Cornell, so we decided to re-record and re-address this amazing album.

Zach and Dave recommend you support your local record-store rather than buying from some huge corporation or online retailer. but if you have to buy this record online Sub Pop has several options on their Soundgarden’s own store.

Episode #01 “Jerry’s On His Way” / Album: “Facelift” by Alice in Chains

Posted on by

In our inaugural episode of My Seattle Mixtape we get some first-episode jitters out of the way, initiate some new verbal ticks for ourselves and discuss Alice in Chains’ debut album Facelift.

Zach and Dave discuss first hearing this album as teens (or tweens in Zach’s case), some mysterious parodies of the band as performed by Metallica on their 1994 Summer Tour, and ultimately what song from this awesome album will be the first one on the mixtape.

There’s a little bit more tangential rambling on this first episode but we hope you’ll stick with us and see how much we improve by Episode #2!
