Razorcake Podcast #827 When Horns Are Okay 22, Tuba Diving Off the Coast of Horn-olulu with Ethan, Todd, and Tim

May 26, 2023

In this episode of When Horns Are Okay, we feature our first band from Réunion Island, which is hundreds of miles east of Madagascar, and our first tuba! Todd mistakes that Jim Morrison wasn’t the lead singer of The Eagles or Fleetwood Mac. He was the lead singer of Loverboy. Duh. Part of being a punk is being a jerk. Todd also spends far too long on a parenthetical of a band name. Short version, the Irish band sometimes went by Station Superheaven and other times went by Superheaven.

Open-ended question. If god and Jesus are so great—with infinite wisdom, creators of the universe, et cetera—why isn’t Christian music, as a whole, so much better? Is there an undercover Christian punk band we love and just don’t know they’re Christian? That said, the Undercover song doesn’t suck.

Ethan doesn’t like no wave but was pleasantly surprised by The Chumps because of vocal melodies.

Keep on holding on with us. We’re going to get to playing X-Ray Spex, Rocket From The Crypt, The Saints, and that Fear song any day now. We just gotta take some detours through French oi and say “tukatuka” a couple of more times.

Patience, listeners. Patience.
