Part 3 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we dissect a legendary 1970s boogie rock classic. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Titus Andronicus, The Henry Clay People and Action Jets.

Show notes:

- Recorded late at night at More Lost Time world HQ

- "Smokin' in the Boys Room" came out in 1973, was revived in the Ramones movie Rock 'n Roll High School

- Ric questions the deeper meanings of the song: Is it about drugs, sex or both?

- Rebellion took on a much different meaning in the '70s

- 12 years later, Motley Crue covered the song and hit #16 on the charts

- Cub Koda reportedly influenced stage style of Peter Wolf of J. Geils Band

- Brownsville Station's had a radio "hit" called "Martian Boogie"

- Seven minutes of cheesy effects and stupidity

- ZZ Top was much better at boogie rock

- Koda was making rockabilly solo albums on the side and selling them himself

- Not many weed songs in rock anymore

- Dube talks about the origins of beatboxing, in 1971 from a band called The Counts

- Those awkward moments watching risque TV with your parents

 

Music:
Titus Andronicus - In a Big City

The Henry Clay People - Everybandweeverloved

Action Jets - Rock Like Pollard
