brand new (old) PODS MP3 rarities!

In honor of the upcoming gala 10th anniversary re-issue of "where I'm calling from," we continue our ongoing series of previously unreleased reasons you should give a damn.

First: the Ben ("Creator") classic "postcard" as you've never heard it before: live with full band rock treatment:

We were covering Simon & Garfunkel before it was even LESS hip to cover Simon & Garfunkel! Yes, Jonno, Dave and I laid this one down at the poplicious Cars' SYNCRO SOUND studio in Boston before LEMONHEADS had even had a chance to do that...OTHER S & G song. And to think, they all laughed...laughed, I tells ya. Still, the guitars shoulda been way louder.

(Now it's on the freaking GARDEN STATE soundtrack...go figure.)

This just in: a full length interview with PODS from WMBR, circa 1991. (Not for the faint of heart, or the short of bandwidth.)

Imaginary titles for our record, then in progress...

Back when radio MEANT something, man...

I happen to know that there are HUNDREDS of pods photos out there, kids. Unfortunately (?), I don't have 'em.

IF YOU DO HAVE THEM, please submit them for immediate publication. Uh, pretty please?
