MMR #31: Nostalgia 2: Specials syndrome

Podcast: The live ad pages of the music mags are a mindbending trip back to the future. They’re all on tour, forever – and if they’re not, their tribute acts are. The Specials! The Sweet! Genesis! Deep Purple! Midge fucking Ure, Cast, the Doors and the Dead! But why? And who are they? The real people, or some other ones? And where? Who goes to see them? Are they overweight, and do they have anal leakage? Robin Gibson and Sean Gollogly revisit the era of the sticky floor. Contains bum notes.
