We Are Stardust, We Are Golden – It’s The Fiftieth Stagger Cast

Well ain’t that a thing – this is Stagger Cast #50. More’n 50 hours of Staggering goodness, and over a thousand tunes. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve wondered just how many Caitlin Rose tunes I could fit in without it getting kinda awkward. So, seeing as how 50 don’t come round too often, this is a sorta bumper edition.

Me and Earl, we grew up with the double album – grand concept, elaborate gatefold sleeve that folded out into a shield, all that (mine were by Skynyrd, his by Jesus Jones or some damn fool nonsense like that). So this is a double Stagger Cast (in fact it’s a double extended Stagger Cast cos it’s the length of two CDs rather than the usual one hour).

As for the grand concept, well it’s just my favourite Old Record Club-type acts, the people I’d have on the Stagger Casts every damn time if it was up to me. Which is kinda is, but you get my drift. Anyway, I’ll quit ramblin’, you start downloading and we’ll all have a fine ole time.
