Episode #06 “Yarm Wrestle” – Album: Soundtrack from the film “Singles”

In this episode Zach and Dave discuss the soundtrack from the movie “Singles”. Which came out in 1992 and featured most of the iconic grunge bands from Screaming Trees to Alice in Chains.

We are joined on this episode by our first ever special guest – Mark Yarm author of “Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge.” You’ve probably already noticed us talking about Mark’s book and if you’re in Europe or the UK you can pick up the new paperback edition this month! We were extremely grateful to Mark for joining us over skype to discuss this awesome soundtrack.

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 mega-mart.

Episode #02 “Some Err” / Album: “Above” by Mad Season

Posted on by

We had originally recorded a second episode that discussed the Soundgarden album “Badmotorfinger”. In light of the tragic death of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell we have decided to re-record that episode at a later date. As a result you might notice some discrepancies in us talking about past episodes etc.

In this episode we discuss the Seattle super-group Mad Season and their one and only album “Above”.

This is of course another album with Layne Staley on vocals – we promise other vocalists will be introduced in Episode #03.

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!
