Scott Aukerman Interview

STEREOGUM: I feel like I’d be remiss if I didn’t begin our interview by asking you this question: When did you first hear of R.E.M.?

AUKERMAN: [laughs] That may be one of the first questions asked on the show.

STEREOGUM: Great. Start you off with a softball then.

AUKERMAN: I must have heard certain songs like “So. Central Rain,” and also probably I must have heard…uhhhh…what’s their first single? [laughs] We’ve been talking about so many of their songs. Oh, “Radio Free Europe,” I must have heard that on the radio. But I didn’t really ever listen to them until I saw a poster in my friend’s bedroom when I was 15 for Fables Of The Reconstruction. He got me into a lot of cooler alternative music than what I was listening to at the time, which was mainly like Hall & Oates and Huey Lewis And The News. So he got me into the Smiths and Echo And The Bunnymen and a bunch of stuff, and my other friend at the same time was getting me into X and the Dead Kennedys and OMD and things like that. So really, when I was 15, I started opening my eyes to a whole bunch of new music. I saw this R.E.M. poster and my friend said to me, “Oh, that’s not a very good album, actually.” So I didn’t actually listen to that one. I heard of them probably in 1985, but didn’t really listen to them until 1986 when Lifes Rich Pageant came out.

STEREOGUM: Your answer is very similar to the one that Paul F. Tompkins tried to give, actually, when you asked him the same question about his experience with U2. Numerous times.

AUKERMAN: Is it? I don’t recall.

STEREOGUM: So did you become a fan right away? Did you click with R.E.M. the same way you did with U2?

AUKERMAN: It was a little different than U2 because I think a lot of what I liked about U2 was wrapped up in their singles, initially. It also weirdly was sort of coordinated in the fact that they were somewhat considered to be a religious band in the early ’80s. And so growing up in the Christian church, that was sort of considered to be one of the only rock bands that it was OK to listen to. So I think by the time that I hit 16, when I started listening to R.E.M., I was listening to a lot of different types of alternative music. Then I got into it with Life’s Rich Pageant, which is still one of my favorite records. [After that] I went back and discovered and listened to all of R.E.M.’s early albums and became obsessed. They became a band I was rooting for, because they hadn’t become popular yet — whereas U2, by 1986, were one of the biggest bands in the world.

STEREOGUM: I remember you guys talking about R.E.M. on one of the U Talkin’ U2 To Me? episodes. I recall Adam saying that they were his all-time favorite band, even more so than U2. And I kind of got the feeling that your enthusiasm was a little more reserved. Is that fair to say?

AUKERMAN: There definitely comes a point in the podcast where we diverge in terms of our listenership, unlike U2. The U2 show, we both had different entry points in different years, because Adam’s a couple years younger than me, but we continued to listen and buy all the U2 albums the day they came out. There’s a point during the R.E.M. show where we diverge, and I suddenly have never heard an R.E.M. album after that. So what’s interesting about this series versus the other series is at a certain point everything is gonna be sort of new to me. And I’ll be listening to these albums for the first time.

STEREOGUM: Have you recorded most of the podcast already? Have you recorded all of it already? Is it done?

AUKERMAN: No, I wouldn’t say we’ve recorded most of it. We’ve got a number of episodes in the can, but we sort of have to do that. We’ve been recording ever since late last year. I think on our last U2 episode we sort of teased out, “Should we do this?” [laughs] Even though we knew we were gonna record in a couple weeks. We sort of teased it to get people excited about it, even though we knew. Basically during the Christmas break, Adam wasn’t shooting anymore and I didn’t go out of town, so we had a lot of time to stockpile some episodes knowing that once the new year came around it would get a little busier. But there will be — much like the U2 show — a certain point where it catches back up with us because already Adam’s so busy that he hasn’t been able to get back in the studio for a couple of weeks. So at a certain point we’re gonna run out of episodes and then it’ll become the weekly grind that the U2 show became for a while [laughs]. But our hope is to get through all the albums along with a bunch of little weird side trips along the way, hopefully, like the last series.

STEREOGUM: I was wondering how you were gonna start this podcast, because you built up so many recurring in-jokes and sub-podcasts over the course of U Talkin’ U2 To Me? Are those going to transfer over to the new show, or are you going to start cold and expand the universe as you proceed?

AUKERMAN: It’s something that we didn’t really talk about. But it’s a good question because I know, much like the U2 show, there will be a lot of R.E.M. fans who are excited just to hear another podcast devoted to R.E.M. I think there are a couple out there currently. And if R.E.M. are one of their favorite bands, they’re gonna be excited to listen. And then they’re in for a crushing disappointment once they learn that roughly half of the episodes are not even devoted to the band [laughs]. So it’s something we didn’t even discuss, because our reasons for doing it are: Adam always really wanted to discuss these bands with someone, and I think he’s kind of a frustrated music critic in a way. I believe that was his second choice for a career.

STEREOGUM: Oh. God. Well, he’s very lucky he got his first choice.

AUKERMAN: [laughs] I know. He’s lucky he got a more symmetrical face, I would imagine, than most music critics [laughs]. But I think it’s something he really enjoys doing, talking about these bands. And there’s a point in the show where he talks about how when he was in high school he would be playing R.E.M. on his Walkman, and he would go over and forcefully put headphones on other people’s ears and force them to listen [laughs]. So I think that behavior has naturally escalated now to where he’s forcing fans of his to listen to R.E.M. songs. But we also do it to just hang out with each other and to have fun, so I don’t think that we are necessarily trying to make it accessible to the R.E.M. listener because, undoubtedly, they’re going to probably hate it anyway from the types of mail that we get from U2 fans. So it’s really more for music fans in general and people who are interested in R.E.M. and don’t mind our personalities [laughs].

STEREOGUM: I think one of the things that made the U2 podcast so fantastic — and I expect the same will be true of the R.E.M. podcast — is that you guys are such incredible superfans, and when you talk about the music, you do so in a way that could only be communicated by someone who truly loves the band. But there’s also this deep familiarity that allows you to be more irreverent than you would if you were discussing a band you didn’t love. Like, I think, if you’re a huge U2 fan, you can make fun of the band in a more intimate way. And I think maybe other U2 fans hear that.

AUKERMAN: After getting some R.E.M. episodes in the can, I found that U2 are inherently a more ridiculous band in a lot of ways. They’re so much larger than life. They’re very similar bands in the sense that they both became popular around the same time, and sort of heralded the public zeitgeist being interested in alternative music that exploded in 1992 with Nirvana and grunge and everything. So they’re very similar in a lot of ways, but U2 are so much larger than life — just the fact that two of them call themselves Bono and the Edge [laughs]. Like, that’s already ridiculous. I don’t think R.E.M. has anything remotely comparable. So it’s definitely interesting. We get a little more into the music; this time we try to critique every single song they’ve put out, which we didn’t really do with the U2 records. Sometimes we’d skip over songs — the early records, I don’t think we even played a lot of them. This one we’re going track-by-track, including the B-sides.

STEREOGUM: You said that one of the reasons you guys are doing this show is just because it gives you an excuse to hang out. For me, as a listener, that’s something comes across really clearly. One of the reasons I loved the U2 podcast was because it brought back this feeling I had when I was 16 or so, just hanging around with buddies and listening to records and making fun of each other. You don’t really do that anymore as you get older.

AUKERMAN: You just don’t have time to hang out with your friends and talk about music all that much. That usually coincides with more responsibilities, either children or graduating college… It is a really fun thing that friends don’t usually, normally, get to do. When you get a new album you don’t usually unwrap it or download it and then call your friend and go, ‘let’s listen to this together!’ [laughs] Music in your 20s, and 30s, and 40s becomes sort of a solitary experience. You’re listening to music alone usually. You’re listening to it in the car, you’re listening to it on your computer, or on your stereo, or on your turntable, but there’s no one else around you. At most, you put something on at a party. If it’s dance music, people maybe will pay attention to it. If not, it just becomes background music. But it’s just fun to talk about music with other people — and talk about your different experiences with it. A lot of what we’re trying to go into with the show is, “what were you doing when this album came out?” And we’re just talking about our lives and the effect that the music had on our lives. Some funny stories are coming out of it, stuff that I don’t know about Adam, and stuff that Adam doesn’t know about me. So it’s just fun to do with a friend in a way that you don’t get the opportunity to do as you get older.
