For a while now, The American Scene has been contemplating a symposium on the 2000s. In that spirit, I’ve been looking back at a lot of the seminal albums of the decade, or rather albums that I really liked. Two bands that never really took off are The Joggers from Portland (try Googling that!) and the now defunct Natural History), which made two of my all-time favorite songs. A good friend of mine briefly dated one of the ex-members of The Natural History. This relationship dissolved before I had a chance to meet one of my musical heroes. I am still filled with bitterness.
This is an interview with both bands from 2006.
