Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips Has His Memory Tested in Rockers’ Block

He falters on one song, but kicks much ass on the rest


Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too shitty to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog, each song from the beginning, to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

Hard to believe it’s been 27 years since Toad the Wet Sprocket emerged on the pop-rock landscape with their debut 1988 debut Bread & Circus. BlastEcho, of course, plays a song from that album, along with four others to Toad singer Glen Phillips for this audio edition of Rockers’ Block. We learn a lot, too, including that one particularly song was inspired by a “psychedelic experience” of sorts. For copyright reasons, you won’t hear the songs during the game, but we’ve provided links to the actual songs so you can play along.

Have at it!
