Ward’s Post War, The Thermals’ Personal Life, Hiccup’s Imaginary Enemies, a long extended discussion of why the Seattle music scene sucks, The Walkmen’s Bows + Arrows, Keegan and Jeff get into a fight, The Matches’ Decomposer, Billy Talent’s Billy Talent II, and we all kind of gush about Rain in Soho for a bit.
