16 December 2013 – The Toadies – Possum Kingdom – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Mid 90’s alternative music was a different breed. It was straight-ahead rock music, with different pacing and subject matter. 

Take this song, for example.  The Toadies were a rock band.  They still are, in fact.  This song, their biggest hit by far, started quiet and slow-paced, with a guitar and rhythm track ping-ponging back and forth between left and right balance.  It made for a very rich sound, despite the streaght-ahead rock instruments they used.

And the song is about a romance between possums.  Now THAT’S subject matter not visited since “Muskrat Love”.
