Episode 4 of the Random Old Records Podcast is hot off the, eh, encoder. This is the longest one to date, at a whopping 61 minutes, and is dedicated to Shane West, for pulling off the rare feat of starring as Darby Crash in a major motion picture and not coming off like a clueless putz. For maximum effect, watch What We Do Is Secret before listening, and try not to be too pissed off at the Bronx as Black Flag. Really? The Bronx? That's the best Black Flag facsimile the director could come up with? The singer is too fat to be Henry Rollins, too bald to be Keith Morris or Dez, and too white to be Chavo. For shame, Rodger Grossman.
Download the podcast, and hear classic Germs tracks, songs from Black Flag and X that are featured in the movie, and other Cali punk gems from the Weirdos, Avengers, and Fear. There's also a set of 2008's best power-pop and punk tracks from the Wax Museums, Gentleman Jesse, and others, along with more from Girls In The Garage, and some obscure funk from Black Nasty and Union. The track list is inside the zip if you get lost along the way.
