138: Sunday Brunch

This week’s Sunday Brunch features Killing Joke (pictured), who wrote a song about the Eighties. We’ll also hear from The Softies, Liz Phair, Fiction Factory, The Smiths, Iggy Pop, The Clash, Overwhelming Colorfast, R.E.M., Big Black, and whole lot more. Because J Mascis’ turned 50 this week, we’ll spin a cut from Dinosaur’s first album. Plus, Billy Bragg reminds us that “just because you’re going forwards doesn’t mean I’m going backwards.”
