An innocuous comment made by our own Zack “Dr. Gonzo” Stiegler in an email thread led to a whole damn hour of the 4 1/2 Mikes crew (Stiegler + Big Money Mike + Michaels CunninghamDuquette and Parr) talking about music of the ’90s and whether it holds up to other decades in musical history. In this episode, you’ll hear:

-The concert Dr. Gonzo went to that reads like a rummage through a ’90s refuse bin

-Why we all secretly envy Mark McGrath

-Why the death of the commercial single made careers out of many of the bands *in* that refuse bin.

-How badly mixed/mastered two of the decade’s defining albums are (and why Big Money should probably get his hearing checked.)

-Dr. Gonzo’s Anthony Kiedis impression

-Cunningham’s Madd Rapper impression

-Parr gets shouted down by the gang when he tries to use “The Bodyguard” soundtrack as a case study for cultural relevance.

-Why the double CD is a thing that should never, ever, EVER happen again

-“All Eyez On Me”: yay or nay?

-“Emancipation”: yay or nay?

-The enduring appeal of Sublime

-Buck-O-Nine?

-Cunningham’s not being fit for a high-top fade

and so much more.

(oh, by the way…Cunningham’s band has a new album out. You should buy it.)
