Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks

2014-5-13

Ep. 93 - Stephen Malkmus and his band the Jicks are this week's podcast guest.

Zach and guest co-host Jeff Miller (from Thrilllist) caught up with the band in the green room of The El Rey last time they were in Los Angeles to talk food and a little bit of sports (apparently Chef David Chang is in Stephen's fantasy basketball and baseballs leagues.) It also turns out Keyboardist Mike Clark used to own a restaurant in Portland, and Joanna tells us what it's like to be the token Vegetarian in the band.

Mark Ibold from Pavement also comes up in coversation, and Stephen tells us one of the best tidbits we've ever heard about Pok Pok chef (and former podcast guest) Andy Ricker before completely proving our thesis in the last 30 seconds of the podcast. Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks new album "Wig Out at Jagbags" is out now on Matador Records.
