For the first ever live episode of the Spindle, hosted by DC record store Art Sound Language, Marc and John delve into the greatness of the Minutemen’s 1980 Paranoid Time EP, the second-ever release on SST records. The audio is a little rough—we truly jammed econo!—but the genius of the Minutemen still shines through!
About The Spindle: The 7-inch record isn’t just a format—it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters (Pitchfork, The Wire, Bandcamp) and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history.
