After travelling west by covered wagon in 1846, the Donner Party became marooned in the snows of the Sierra Mountains. Even though a small group had made it out to find help, they were running out of food and strength. In this third part of this episode, we discuss the relief efforts as well as the aftermath of their ordeal.

Part 2 of 2

Year: 1987

Albums: Dreamtime, The Cult

Strange Days, The Doors

Turning 18 is a big year for anybody, and for our spikey-haired protagonists it was no different. Coveting the analog delays and stomp box phasers of others reached fever pitch, as did the partying, the posturing and the panicking. Simon looked toward university and leaving home with trepidation and excitement. Nick played his first gig and went all pixie-powered. Life was in overdrive, while The Cult and the Doors played as soundtrack to those heady, headless-chicken days of misspent yoof.

Part 1 of 2

Year: 1987

Albums: Dreamtime, The Cult

Strange Days, The Doors

Our maladjusted heroes finally come of age, leave home, learn to cook pasta and embark upon nearly-adult pursuits. Nick performs his first gig with Felo de Se and begins chasing the dream of goth stardom in earnest. Simon leaves behind small-town England for the bright lights of the capital, immersing himself in study and the noble art of endless late night rambling in the smoky bedrooms of his new student compadres.
