Part 1 of my conversation with guest Brian Salvatore as we discuss music we've outgrown. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from The Pixies, Obits, Adam Franklin and Bob Mould.

Show notes:

- Recorded via Skype

- Check out Brian's comics podcast The Hour Cosmic

- Will launch Input/Output, a music-themed show, soon

- Tracking the different Black Flag reunions

- Rollins doesn't sing anymore

- Kim Deal leaves Pixies

- Rumors of new Pixies recordings (we talked a few days before the new Pixies song dropped)

- Music we once loved but have outgrown

- Brian: The Offspring (on Jay's list as well)

- Somehow grew popular

- Jay: Red Hot Chili Peppers

- Really, it's Kiedis who hasn't aged well

- Awkward moments at Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame inductions

- The greatness of Tom Scharpling and The Best Show

- The bland rock of Bad Company

- Brian drops a bomb with Sonic Youth

- Just can't get into them

- Jay: Sting has grown tiresome

- Big fan of The Police, but in the early '90s, Sting began to suck mightily

- Brian: Wank guitar (also on Jay's list)

- Yngwie Malmsteen led a wave of classically-inspired speed guitarists

- The Vinnie Vincent Invasion was so dumb, so fast

- Soft spot for That Metal Show

- Stephen Malkmus crams tons of solos into good songs

- DLR and Ozzy had plenty of hot guitarists come through their bands

- Brian: Recent McCartney concert was best show he's ever seen

- Listening to music is no longer a sole activity; now, it's always done while you do something else

- Music discovery was a challenging pursuit prior to the Internet

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:

The Pixies - Bagboy

Obits - Taste the Diff

Adam Franklin - Boocat Leah

Bob Mould - The Descent
