This week Kyle and Matthew go to the dark side of the rad with the Spoon Man himself Mike Mitchell (The Birthday Boys, Doughboys Podcast), to chat about Mitch's all-time favorite band: Pink Floyd. The gang talks about their first exposure to Pink Floyd and take a look at Floyd's place in the classic rock cannon. They also ruminate on why their music seems to hold up better over time than their contemporaries. Kyle and Mitch debate the merits of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd (Kyle is a fan) vs. later era Post-Roger Waters Pink Floyd (Mitch is a fan). Mitch also talks about the film adaptation of The Wall and how there really is no other movie like it. Plus, all parties involved share their experiences with laser shows. There are some mighty fine tangents about the modern movie landscape, a defense for “uncool” bands, East Coast vs. West Coast hippies, and Kyle gushes about The Birthday Boys. (Note from Kyle: Seriously! The whole series is on Netflix! Go watch it! Now! We'll wait...) Get ready to shine on like a couple of crazy diamonds!
