Synopsis: In the 17th episode of Columbia House Party, we take a look at a major What-If moment in pop-punk, the Mark-and-Travis blink-182 hiatus side project +44.
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy continue blink-182 month (is there a name for a six-week stretch?) by diving into one of a handful of blink side-projects, +44’s lone album, When Your Heart Stops Beating. The unofficial follow-up to blink’s untitled album, +44 sees Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker continue down that same road, with Hoppus trying to extend himself creatively but ultimately reining himself back in. Find out more about where +44 fits in the blink fracture, why they don’t utilize Carol Heller more, and how Barker’s newborn affected the duo’s new found on this week’s podcast.
