Wax! Crackle! Pop! #78: B Sides the Point! Number Six!

September 28, 2015
11:35 am


We here at W!C!P! are all about records. We like all kinds but, there’s something real special about the beloved 7″ or “45”. Back in the day, artists depended on singles to achieve their way to the top of the charts and later on independent artists relied on the 7″ format to sell at shows (inexpensively) to get their music into our hot little hands.

Every 7″ record has an “A” side that usually contains the “hit” or a song the artist obviously wants you to experience first. But sometimes on the “B” side is where things get interesting. Either labeled as “throwaways” or experimental recordings for particular artists, these tracks would sometimes become a hit themselves or be found deep on an album buried between other non hit songs; OR the assigned “B” side track just remained an orphan of sorts, existing solely beneath “A” territory.

Wax! Crackle! Pop! proudly presents a series, every blood moon (or so), where we exclusively investigate the other side, flipping it all over and that’s B SIDES THE POINT. Vinyl geek, B side enthusiasts John Seden and John Everett are regular guests! Be sure to check out the previous FIVE B Sides shows too!

Friends of rock n roll, DJ Jim G is thrilled to welcome San Francisco icons Maz Kattuah and Russell Quan from the Mummies and The Phantom Surfers (among many others) on W!C!P!

From humble beginnings that quickly blew up ending the 80’s with an insane sonic blast and charging into the new decade, leading a dedicated underground following that kicked off the 90’s revival garage punk rock movement worldwide.
