Matt & Scott finally get to the first proper release on Creation. (Quality takes time, right??!)
Your hosts debate the merit of the (much-maligned-in-its-time) record that started it all, and then they talk to the man himself, JERRY THACKRAY a.k.a. THE LEGEND! a.k.a. EVERETT TRUE.
Best known for his writing in the NME and Melody Maker, as well as for his and books on NIRVANA, WHITE STRIPES, and THE RAMONES, Mr. Thackray is a fascinating and Zelig-like character. And we LOVE his later (post-Creation) EPs (links below), so you’ll hear a few clips of those as well. It’s a sprawling and wild ride, but trust us, it’s worth sticking around for the whole thing. There’s music, there’s sadness, there’s drama, there’s brushes with fame. It’s got everything, even a live song.
