Episode 56: What Happened To You?

February 7, 2019

Radical change can be a great thing if it involves the wealthy and guillotines but does it have a place in music? That's the question on the Condition Mint team's mind as they discuss artists that have swerved violently out of their lane.

What’s that bulging in Santa’s sack? It’s only Condition Mint’s hotly anticipated end of year extravaganza!! Jaso and Fox discuss their 2018 highlights, lowlights, ups, downs, ins and outs. It’s part wistful look back on a simpler time, part hard nosed investigation into sonic listening patterns and all good time fun celebrating the festive season.

It turns out the real 70s guitar tone,... was love.

Happy Festivus from the Condition Mint team.

Tired of running with the “in” crowd? The Condition Mint team hears you. Which is why this episode focuses on genres “the man” doesn’t want you to consider. You know what else “the man” doesn’t what you thinking about? Jaso’s hypothetical behaviour in a Portland Op Shop and Foxys checkout preferences at Bathurst Coles. But too bad - It’s all here!!!

Condition Mint put on their Sunday best and hit the pews for some pious podcastery! Yes, Fox and Jaso are sharing with you their favourite religion themed numbers. Lest you think this is the episode that might win over the local vicar or padre, please be forewarned there are also graphic descriptions of unseemly violence at the funeral of eminent Portland labrador Mr Flash and acknowledgement of the stunning accuracy of the Condition Mint Sex Pest radar.

Condition Mint gracefully peel of a classic cover drive to the boundary and bring up a thoroughly deserved 50. Episodes that is - Who would have believed such a feat were possible? To celebrate Jaso and Fox laud pioneers and ground breakers who, like them, paved the way with their genius and talent so that others could follow. They also throw some shade at a fictitious 70s rock and roll police sketch artist and talk about Dr Falbio’s wang.

Condition Mint embrace the great unwashed by finding a set of songs everyone can enjoy. But what are the miracle ingredients that allows this magical consensus to occur? Jase and Fox put on their sonic forensic investigation hats to provide you with the answers. Answers that include coining the phrase “classic crack squeezers” and discussing how Paul Weller fared in the Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Hey Mr Bassman! Colin Grigson’s triumphant call to arms has never been so relevant as the new Condition Mint episode zeroes in on that most under appreciated four string guitar. Jaso and Fox bring a couple of their favourite bass moments to the table for some incisive and intellectual discussion before letting themselves down in the final act by developing a potentially libellous segment optimistically pitched as the Brownlow Medal of Sex Pest lookalikes.
