Damn, I love Chimaera. Don't know of any life versions of this one either though - unfortunately.

Great podcast, as usual. My ears never bleed of your show. ;)

Does anyone agree that bad Religions earliest stuff (How can hell be any Worse album for instance) is completely different to everything else they've done?

Greg sounds completely different; in fact he sounds like he can't sing very well, the sound quality is poor and you can't really hear that much apart form a lot of noise.

I personally can't stand this album or any of these songs, and never listen to them as they just don't meet Bad Religion's usually excellent standards.

Anyone agree?

Well, I certainly prefer Back to the Known and later over the early stuff, but there still is some good stuff on the EP and How Could Hell Be Any Worse?

I didn't really like the early stuff until I forced myself to listen to it a little more. It tends to grow on you the more you listen to it (although it still isn't as good as the band's later stuff).

Part 3, Fuck Armaggedon, Theme Song, Politics, Pity, and Voice of God are all very good songs. And then again, stuff like Faith in God, Eat Your Dog, and Oligarchy are pretty terrible songs. The band will still finding its sound at that point.

Loved the podcast as always, but isn't Sinister Rouge also a "God Song"?

There are a few other "God Songs" that I didn't get a chance to play or that I had played before (like American Jesus). I'm sure Sinister Rouge will get played sometime in the future.

Unlike you, Mike, when I watched Tenacious D on England's finest chat show (Friday Night with Jonathon Ross, brilliant show) guess who I saw on the drums behind them!
It was most certainly Brooks Wackerman :) was good to see him after not expecting him to be there after you'd said he wasn't on that American show you saw Tenacious D on.

WOW this thing has really come along now hasn't it?.... I listened to the first several episodes of the podcast back when it came out in February, and I doubt I'll ever be able to find the time it would take to listen through all of the new epidodes, but I'll give it a try. Congradulations on how this has progressed over the year. I was the one asking for you to put a rare or live version of You Don't Belong on your show. I don't suppose you've come across one by now? If you have, I'll be trying to update my iTunes with your podcasts and I hope to hear it pretty soon
