PATREON UNLOCKED! Beyond The Patch: Episode 4

Hey there Pumpkast listeners! Want a FREE taste of what our our Patreon has to offer? We decided to unlock the most recent episode of our Patron-only spinoff podcast, "Beyond The Patch with Frank & Pat," in which your hosts share some of our favorite non-SP/Corgan tracks we've been diggin' recently. Old stuff, new stuff, deep cuts and rediscovered gems are all on the table (and as you'll hear in this episode, we just can't help ourselves from tying things back to the Pumpkins). You know those tangents we like to go off on in our regular episodes? Consider this the “Oops, All Tangents!” version of the Pumpkast – and a beautiful chance to swap cool music with each other and our awesome Patrons. 

Playlist for this episode of Beyond the Patch:

1. Momma – "Rockstar"

2. Sharon Van Etten – "Let Go"

3. ††† (Crosses) – "Goodbye Horses" (Q Lazarus cover)

4. The Clash – "Sean Flynn"

5. Erasers – "Constant Connection"

6. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – "Rings of Saturn"

As a $3 "Cool Kid" Patreon member you get access to all episodes of our monthly show "Beyond the Patch," exclusive audio and video commentaries (like our upcoming Vieuphoria video commentary), early access to Pumpkast episodes when available, access to our Discord server, early access to Pumpkast merch, opportunities to join Zoom roundtables, listener polls and opportunities to vote on future episodes! 

Our $8 "Adore" level gets your all of that PLUS every six months YOU get to come on the Pumpkast to talk about the Pumpkin/Corgan-related topic of your choosing! 

It's a great way to go deeper into the world of SP and help us produce a high-quality Pumpkast. If you like what you hear, consider signing up today! We love ya! 

– Frank & Pat
