Sub Pop Stories: Weird & Funny

Sub Pop is famous as and indie music label, but it also has a long history of humor, both in its music, and in the comedy albums it's produced; from Sarah Silverman and Patton Oswalt to "jazz daredevil" Jon Benjamin and KEXP faves Flight of the Conchords.

Our latest feature in the Sub Pop Stories series, hosted by KEXP DJ and Morning Show host John Richards, is about a few of the humorous and frankly weird stories from our friends at Sub Pop. 

"Sub Pop Stories 5: Weird & Funny" is part of the From the Vault documentary series, made possible thanks to a generous gift from Paul Allen, and in cooperation with MoPop. Production, writing, and editing thanks to Isaac Kaplan-Woolner and Julian Martlew, with help from Owen Murphy. Hosted by KEXP DJ John Richards.

Sessions

Death Cab For Cutie Live on KCMU // July 11, 1998

Before they would become one of the biggest bands to emerge from Seattle, Death Cab For Cutie stopped by KCMU (which would eventually become KEXP) to play on the station's weekly live shwocase The Live Room with former Audioasis host Abe Beeson and produced by eventual Midday Show host Cheryl Waters.

For the first time in 20 years, this early session is now available. You can also catch a broadcast of the entire performance on Audioasis on July 14 at 7 p.m.
