Episode 36: Brian Wilson
Are you reeling from the good vibrations from last week’s interview? I still am. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one song where we all agreed on its merits? Maybe it’s this song. God only knows as we review Brian Wilson with returning co-host, Bobby. We are missing Michelle, but I still guarantee, this long episode is fun, fun, fun!
BNL playing, what may be the first live performance of the song, at the Horseshoe Tavern on June 15, 1991. We don’t have any record of earlier performances.

Barenaked Ladies on Much Music Intimate and Interactive (you have to listen to the funky version of “A” first… gee.. Darn. I’m not going to even tell you the minute mark because I dare you to try to skip this version of “A”… and he uses the word “asswipe” instead of “asshole”). Then you see Ed in the audience sitting on someone’s lap in the audience, and you can really hear Andy going crazy on those congas / bongos.
