It’s Yesterday, it’s now, but the Beatles don’t exist. Neither do Oasis. But what about wit, humour and empathy? Can Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle fit them in? And who’s gonna live forever? Robin and Sean take the long and winding road to the dark heart of the long and winding romcom. Contains karaoke.
Thank you British films and British actresses. Thank you Lily James and Felicity Jones and Kate Winslet and Emma Watson and Keira Knightley and you too, Audrey Hepburn (born in Belgium, but British to me).
Nobody wants to go on record about this, but I’m fed up and I’m taking a stand. There’s a pattern of British bands coming here, stealing our blues, taking our women, and criticizing America in their lyrics.
Podcast: Is the TV music doc a shagged formula? Can we get Keith Richards in and is he actually black? What way up do you play and are you in a non-ego zone? Can you find out watching John Lee Hooker: Boogie Man and Word Is Bond? Robin and Sean give it a try. Contains bum notes.
British music mags, once a seething pit of pathologically antisocial vibes, are now a library of wistful epistles to the last century. Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Neil Young and the bloke who mowed the lawn at the place Led Zeppelin recorded Houses Of The Holy (really though). You name it.
Podcast: It’s the BRITs. But was there any upset, chaos or controversy? Or was it the proof of the rise of the poshos with a side dish of seventies-style smut served up by Jack Whitehall? Robin and Sean watch and listen in search of the zeitgeist, or a good joke. Contains bad jokes.
