The boys aren't called bastards for nothing and sometimes they can be hard on unfamiliar musicians. This episode they are pleased to revisit two artists whose earlier projects got rough treatment but whose new releases tickle a bastard's fancy. At the same time, they discuss two artists brand new to the show and like their releases as well. What are the odds? (Seriously, we don't know. We're both bad at math.) Pop matters wanders from Urge Overkill (the most hated band from Chicago for a while there) to Iggy Pop (David Bowie's scariest friend for a while there).

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
