    I don’t listen to podcasts at all tbh. I’m a musician myself and just keep an open ear out for anything I find interesting. I came a across these guys and 1000 Mods a few years ago.

    They're the ultimate 70's garage band that's 45+ years late.

    I took a type of music appreciation class in high school and teacher play a bunch of Zeppelin songs and then played the blues songs they ripped off right after. It was quite the eye opener as someone who listed to Zep throughout high school.

    Did your teacher play the versions those blues guys ripped off lol? So many of those songs were done by so many different people.. LZ also had a very original library too.


    ‘Dazed and Confused’ is the only legit straight up ripped off song I’ve heard them do. Most of their versions of the blues stuff doesn’t sound like a carbon copy. It’s like getting pissed at Hendrix for ‘All Along the Watchtower’ which even Neil Young says is the superior version of the song.

    Guess the point is that all bands steal shit from each other. I remember in the 90s when everyone said Oasis was trying to be the Beatles. I never liked the Beatles... though Oasis was alright for while though. Speaking of bands with brothers.

    Not big on that one either. I dig ‘The Dead Weather’ (he plays drums in this band) and his solo stuff.

    Nirvana with Mudhoney is another one. In fact, Nirvana gets accused of ripping off all kinds of bands. I don’t hear it personally. I feel like in many cases people mistake ‘influenced by’ with ‘ripped off’.

    They kinda get old quick...

    But the first time I heard them, the first band I thought of was Humble Pie. Due to the vocals on that song, which really reminded me of Steve Marriott...

    Downloaded this on the recommendation of a mate, a few songs in and it's not bad, seems like good fun.

    These kids are fantastic. I saw them twice now, once in a tiny venue in oakland. Very talented.

    One thing is to get influence from a band, another thing is to fucking copy it.
    I dind them quite soulless, and I strongly dislike the vocals, the dude sounds weird sometimes.
