ARIA-winning singer-songwriter Josh Pyke and I discuss his unlikely favorite album - the brutal rock classic from Soundgarden, 1991’s ‘Badmotorfinger’.
We talk about how the album’s ongoing influence on Josh’s guitar playing, how he was converted to Soundgarden from Guns n Roses, whether rock stars are deliberately trying to look like Jesus and why, Johnny Cash’s cover version of ‘Rusty Cage’, how Soundgarden’s level of craft was a rejection of alt-rock stereotypes, Guns n Roses’ history of terrible drummers and how your attitude to rock music changes as you age.
