Calling all paranoid androids: It's Radiohead week on The Throwback Podcast. Dan and Bob dial it back to 1997 to re-examine "OK Computer", the album that sent England's saddest musical exports into the rock royalty stratosphere. Did "OK Computer" accurately predict the unrest of the oncoming century? Does Thom Yorke really hang out in seedy L.A. dive bars? Wait, have you watched "Black Mirror" yet? It's all here and more.
Bob and Dan put on their fanboy hats this week and dig into "Is This It", the debut album from The Strokes. The guys talk about the dire state of 2000s rock pre-Strokes, relive the night they almost partied with the band, and look back on a very awkward personal encounter with Drew Barrymore.
Dan and Bob welcome buddy Marc Sessler (Around The NFL) to the show to revisit Coldplay's "A Rush Of Blood To The Head", the soundtrack of a million melodramatic relationships in the early aughts. From conscious uncoupling to "you know how I know you're gay?" the guys dig into the legacy of Coldplay and their anti-rockstar frontman, Chris Martin.
