In the inaugural episode of 'One Hit Wonderful World,' hosts Cody Nelson & Kyle Kimbllin take on the group responsible for potentially THE one-hit wonder: Dexy's Midnight Runners. The discussion includes a look at the tumultuous history of the band, the dark undertones of their breakout track, and an in-depth look at the multitude of failures that made up their following album Don't Stand Me Down. Also included: what happened to the Newsies, rock operas, and just how to handle the world of one-hit wonders (what makes one? is the name offensive? do we rank them at all? how do we not condescend within an inherently condescending concept?).
New episodes every Friday! Each episode will contain discussion on an album the hosts and guests have listened to in full. Listen to said album in advance to maximize podcast enjoyment!
