Show Notes

More of That pulls out all the stops with this palate cleanser episode and gets deep into the notorious "worst album of all time" by The Shaggs, Philosophy of the World! Does it really deserve such a designation? What makes music bad anyway? Who exactly are parents, and should they force their children to make a record to fulfill a prophecy? These questions and more answered within. I cannot stress enough: this one is full of bits, goofs, drops, and general tomfoolery. There also might be alcohol involved. It's a long one (total shocker), but it's jam-packed with that good content, so stick around til the very end! Trust me. Our opening song is "Never Say Never Again" by More of That. You can listen to us on all major streaming platforms and on [Bandcamp.](http://moreofthat.bandcamp.com) Closing music includes Mr. T Experience, Dead Milkmen, and an original composition by Blake.

Pregame: Winter Albums!

As we upload this, much of the USA is in a wintry hell--we're currently snowed in at the More Of Thatcave, dreading rolling blackouts. When we recorded this a few days back, people weren't yet fearing for their lives due to power outages, so we were able to be a bit more cheery about it all. Here's hoping this episode can bring you and yours a few degrees of coziness and (musical) warmth. Today the gang runs down our Top 5 Winter Albums! What makes a winter album? Inquire within! Our opening song is "Never Say Never Again" by More of That. You can listen to us on all major streaming platforms and on [Bandcamp.](http://moreofthat.bandcamp.com) Closing music is "Idioteque" by Radiohead (for obvious reasons).
