The Great Albums

Two indie rock musicians, Bill Lambusta and Brian Erickson, dive into the fandom of great rock and pop music and how it connects to their lives through the lens of the medium they care for most, the album. Episodes frequently include guest contributions from musicians, podcasters, and journalists and always culminate in a track by track review.

Bill and Brian are joined by writer, actor, comedian, musician, friend, and lover Drew Novelli (check out his web series Just a Cop, Just a Surgeon, and How To With Drew!) to discuss Green Day's breakthrough album Dookie (1994, Reprise). All three reminisce about their formative years and how this album made such an impact. Also, the great "Peter Buck" stops by to give his opinion on a couple songs! As is our norm, we break down Dookie (ew) track-by-track.

    After hearing the conversation about basslines you recognize immediately...
    Recognizable/Iconic basslines for me:
    Come As You Are by Nirvana
    Money by Pink Floyd
    Walk On The Wild Side by Lou Reed
    Another One Bites The Dust by Queen
    Bullet To The Head by Rage (mostly the intro, like longview)
    Schism by Tool
    Roundabout by Yes
    Feel Good Inc by Gorillaz
    Billie Jean by Michael Jackson

    Yes, I realize that after 2 years the conversation is basically dead

    Tre Cool indeed played drums on Kerplunk. Did someone say otherwise in this episode? I apologize that the mistake was made.

    And indeed we made the mistake about Welcome to Paradise. I blame that on Brian. I think I even challanged him on it during the episode, but he was so damn sure, I let it slide. I felt so dumb after that, but thanks for keeping us in check!

    I'd like to think that we've gotten better about these types of mistakes as the episodes have progressed. We're fans of great music, but we aren't always experts on every band, but we do our best!
