Switchblade Symphony - Serpentine Gallery
On this Patreon-supported podcast we do a commentary on Switchblade Symphony’s goth/darkwave classic Serpentine Gallery. From end to end, Bruce and Alex discuss the record’s unique place in the history of Our Thing, and exactly what makes it specifically resonate with them some 21 years after its release. How much substance is there behind its gestures to classical music? How does it intersect with the mid-90s alternative zeitgeist? How hard was it to tell Susan and Tina apart? All this and so much more as two goofballs from Vancouver ruin a perfectly fine album by talking overtop of it.
