Video Playlist: Japandroids guest DJ'd on, check out the whole thing here


"Where's Fugazi when we need Fugazi?" 

That's exactly the kind of idealistic cri de coeur you'd expect to hear from one half of JAPANDROIDS. We've been championing Vancouver's finest duo forevs, but it wasn't until their last swing through town at the Paradise that we got drummer David Prowse to come hang out at the studios for a guest-DJ spot. What transpired was part what-we're-listening to (Titus Andronicus, Swearin', King Tuff) but more of a musical philosphy delivered in the form of a playlist. Below, watch as Prowse and the Phoenix's own Liz Pelly talk about the band's influences, including the Replacements, the Clash, and -- yes -- Fugazi. Bonus tracks: below, two songs Japandroids are hyped on that can't be found on YouTube. The full playlist is embedded below, but if you want to jump around you can browse the list on the YouTube channel

And here's the bonus rounds:
