On the heels of March’s Two Pick Ten debut, Christopher Fritz returns to the Pods & Sods Network to discuss a band that he and Craig worshipped throughout the latter half of the nineties: Smashing Pumpkins. Given the difficulty in narrowing down such a broad (and let’s face it, genius) body of work required some rules to be put in place, so the goal each take on is to pick their respective ten non-single SP tracks, with some backups in case of overlap. No worries though, the episode opens with their five essential singles picks, just so some great songs that would have been lost could get a shoutout. Will they mock each other? Will they speak in Corganisms? Will Craig serenade Fritz? The answer to all of the aforementioned (adorementioned?) questions is… YOW.
TWO PICK TEN episode 01:
THE ESSENTIAL MORRISSEY In this episode, Christopher Fritz and Craig Smith not only swing it so it catches your eye, but reminisce heavily about discovering the music of Morrissey, recap the shows that they took in between 1997 and 2007, and each pick and discuss ten songs to come up with the essential twenty songs in the Morrissey discography.
Craig takes a walk down memory lane with longtime pal Chris Fritz, and they discuss the band that made them friends – The Smashing Pumpkins.
