Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs (aka Sid & Susie) on NPR’s World Cafe

Ooh, I’ve been looking for this show. The day after their U.S. release of their fantastic little gem of an album stuffed full of ’60s covers (Under The Covers, Volume 1) Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs visited the WXPN studios in Philadelphia on 4/19/06 to discuss their collaborations as “Sid & Susie,” their song selections for this album, and how they met as Austin Powers’ backing band in the movie.

A really nice listen for a Saturday afternoon.

  • Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, sweet. Thanks a lot.

    Oh I’m sure you have this but I just posted the Pearl Jam Bridge concert from 1994 (plus another post of 4 other songs tomorrow)

    Like I said figure you have it but just in case I’d let you know since I know how big a PJ fan you are.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
