Returning to the studio for NSTS episode #60 is former Jitters frontman Blair Packham, to cover off the songs we didn't get to during his first appearance in episode #58.
Blair is a compelling guest for a lot of reasons, two of those being his great sense of humour and the visceral insight he provides while dissecting the songs that make his skin vibrate. During this week's chat Blair and I discuss the particulars of Squeeze's songwriting, the dark origins of MTV's Unplugged series, Blair's Jitters days playing alongside bands like Rheostatics and Blue Rodeo, and a reconsideration of Bob Marley.
Squeeze - Is That Love?
Jules Shear - This Primal Fire
Bob Dylan - It's All Over Now Baby Blue
Bob Marley - War
The Beatles - Hey Bulldog
