Next R U Talking Series

Recommended Posts

I don't know if there are any plans for a third series, but what artist would you have them cover next?

 

Seems to me, given their musical tastes and proclivity for forced worldplay, something along the lines of Scott & Scott Talk Talking Heads seems a natural fit.

Maybe the Smiths. This would be a band that Scott might like way more than Adam.

 

Yes, please! The Smiths would be a fantastic subject. Brilliant catalogue of music and Morrissey being such a problematic, larger-than-life character could lead to a lot of great bits. With only four studio albums, it'd be a short series. But the solo work from Morrissey and Johnny Marr is worth getting into too, or even Marr's albums while in Modest Mouse or The Cribs.

 

Also, Steely Dan comes up on CBB fairly often. Not sure if either Scott loves and knows them well enough for a podcast, but as a casual fan, I'd be interested in diving deeper into their discography.

Based on how much Scott and Scott seemed to enjoy talking about them a couple of months ago, my suggestion would be "Carryin' On 'Bout The Cars".

There has been a lot of Radiohead talk during the R.E.M. series. I could also see a limited series focusing on soundtracks, cast albums, or other compilations.

I'm thinking Urinals and Trotsky Icepick.

Okay, okay, that's way too obscure.  Pere Ubu.  They should totally do Pere Ubu.

I'd be happy with them just cherry picking classic records/artists and talking about them for an episode (or two). Few bands are worthy of a full series, or could carry an audience's attention over several episodes (or the Scotts' attention either...) so this could be fun.

Radiohead seems like a natural fit. I would personally love Modest Mouse but I have no idea if either of them has any interest in that band.

Yo La Tengo.

Obviously, Adam and Scott aren't going to do a series on a band they haven't listened to in their formative years, but if either or both of them are Yo La Tengo fans, it'd be a good choice.

While I would LOVE to hear a Radiohead series, I think the Smiths might be a nice small project to tackle for the next season. Plus, I love that idea about Scott being way more of a fanboy than Adam - switching up their dynamic would keep it fresh.

I'm thinking "You Wordsmithing about the Smiths to Me?"

I'd listen to a Rocket from the Tombs series.  

But my personal vote would be Camper Van Beethoven.

U Talkin' GBV to Me?

Guided By Voices has so much out there that this podcast could last well into the next decade.  Plus I think the comf bros would dig em seeing as how they were influenced by early REM.

Not to be a dick but most of you dicks missed the dicking point of them picking U2 and REM for the first two go-rounds, it's because they were the two bands Scott and Scott wore out the LP's and 8-tracks and cassettes and CD's and MP3 players you could say U2 and REM were the soundtrack of their formative years and at first I'd want to punch you for putting it in such garbage language but then I'd remember punching is not something I've ever done or know how to do and so I'd roundhouse kick you in the face instead for not saying it cool like this : you could say U2 and REM were the soundtrack of the years that were formative, wick-a-wick-a-slick-a-pick-a-wha-wha-wha-WU TANG CLAN BITCH, now that is something to remember for next time, always end on a scream and gang sign to make your point emphatically,  and if we are cool here I will walk on outta here and will keep my ninja foot off your jaw, assuming you read this note I dropped as I walk out the door:

 

"Whopper-Stopper, that's what my throat is

Wish it was bigger so I could get wit the burger biz

Quicker, sicker,  to get them down so I throw them back up

Don't judge my fetish bro, I bet you are one sick pup

Speaking of sick pups, I wish they'd do Ween for season 3 because I want to hear Scotty Aux cord plug in and blast Mr. Would You Please Help My Pony (New no-no: Ponies are puppies now) while special guests RZA and GZA do a freestyle about my lightning fast feet they heard about on the street rocked their world more than a hype sick dope beat, yo. Word.

Trying to think of an artist with an accessible enough catalog that would have possibly had a huge influence on both of their lives...

Radiohead seems like a strong choice, as mentioned many times.

How about Beck? 

Huge artist, digestible catalog and probably liked by the Scotts. They could name it WTH,B? - What the Heck, Beck?

And most likely not as influential to the Scotts, but a contender could be the Foo Fighters. Great songs, great rock and rolla music. And obviously...Are U Talking Foo To Me?
