Episode 238: Mac McCaughan in September 2005

We're gearing up to see Superchunk play in Asheville again and it felt like a perfect opportunity to go back to this interview I did with Mac when he came to the Grey Eagle with Portastatic in 2005.

We talk about how some things have changed over the years with touring and being in a band, how some of their audience has gotten stuck in the earlier sound of Superchunk, about cassette culture, payola involving bands like Franz Ferdinand (who also have a new record out after a long absence), Mac's half-joking advice not to start a band or record label and much more.

Superchunk's new record is called I Hate Music and is their 10th studio album.
