Episode 12 - Fucked Up and Natalie Judge on 'The Chemistry of Common Life'

Season 4, Episode 1,   Feb 21, 05:00 AM

Last fall, we celebrated the 15th anniversary of Fucked Up’s ‘The Chemistry of Common Life’– an era-defining punk LP that also just so happened to be the Canadian band’s Matador Records debut. This Friday, our long-in-the-works orange vinyl 2xLP reissue will finally arrive on shelves. Find that ⁠HERE⁠

Today, you can listen to a brand new digital EP, ‘44th & Vanderbilt,’ which compiles three ‘ChemCom’-era session performances with No Age’s excellent remix of “No Epiphany.” 

This episode of the Matador Revisionist History podcast finds FU members Mike Haliechuk and Jonah Falco in conversation with former Matador employee (and current ⁠World of Echo⁠ proprietor), Natalie Judge. They discuss making the record, recording nine months of overdubs, quitting their day jobs, and asking Michael Stipe to jump on the mic for a Feelies cover at the close of their 12-hour long record release show (spoiler: he passed).
