Game Theory, “Lolita Nation” with special guest Jonathan Segel
This week’s guest Jonathan Segel (Camper Van Beethoven, Sparklehorse, Eugene Chadbourne…) phoned in all the way from Stockholm to discuss California power pop band Game Theory and their 1987 magnum opus “Lolita Nation”. Band founder Scott Miller may have overreached somewhat with this dense, experimental double-album, but underneath it all are jangly hooks and heady lyrics about life, regret and the loss of innocence.
“It's been a decade of record stores
Hordes of failing new wave careers
What lengths we're going to just to find
Exactly what we don't want to hear
With all our well-trained ears”
