Time to test your patience. Every band out there has that epically pretentious song they know puts them in league with Beethoven or Tchaikovsky. DJs love when this happens because it means they can go to the bathroom during a song. Welcome to Long Song Silver ep 18, our testament to pomposity in rock ‘n’ roll. In this episode we have a handful of songs clocking in over 9-10 minutes each. Clean your bongs, it’s time for a two minute bass solo.
