Part 2 of my conversation with guest Brian Salvatore as we look back at the music of 1998. I've also got music from Built to Spill, Guillermo Sexo and Bill Janovitz.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Check out Brian's comics podcast The Hour Cosmic

- Remember Blues Brothers 2000?

- Goo Goo Dolls went Hollywood

- Brian: QOTSA released its debut

- Rob Halford came out; first prominent metal dude to do so

- In retrospect, '80s heavy metal was steeped in gayness

- Bubbling under albums

- Jay: Fugazi, GVSB, RFTC

- Brian: Elliott Smith, The Catholics, Flin Flon, Tortoise, The Lounge Lizards

- Jay: Pearl Jam, Neutral Milk Hotel, Pulp, Beasties, Tragically Hip, Cat Power

- Brian's #5 album

- Hello Nasty is the last classic Beasties album

- Jay's #5 and Brian's #4

- Beck does a 180 from Odelay

- Later Beck material rehashes older sounds

- Jay's #4

- Afghan Whigs fully embrace soul and R&B

- Greg Dulli can do no wrong

- 1965 was the last Whigs album...until this year

- To be continued

Music:

Built to Spill - Jokerman

Guillermo Sexo - Color the Noise

Bill Janovitz - Matter
