Here it is…the first installment of Track X Track. From time to time, I’m going to get an artist to go over a monumental album in their catalog.
I’ll be honest: It might be hard to top this guest. This turned out way better than I could’ve hoped. Brent remembered details from every song.
I’ve known Brent since the very early days of the band. When I asked him if he would do this with me, he did not hesitate at all.
What you’re about to watch is one take, no edits. He goes over every song and gives a backstory to each and every one. Since I can’t recall what I did last weekend, the fact that Brent could tell me so much about every track is that much more impressive to me.
He recalls how the band was formed, the “Shit Brown Buick” tour to promote the album and themselves. He tells me about working with famed music theorist, Rick Beato. How and why did they cover “Simple Man”? What song did he write after his grandmother’s untimely death? He talks about what Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd and Barry Kerch all they brought to the album. That’s just for starters. This is so good!
I included every song on the album below, in case you wanted to pause the interview at any point to hear any of them.
