Podcast: They’re all on tour, forever – and if they’re not, their tribute acts are. The Specials! The Sweet! Deep Purple! Midge fucking Ure, Cast, the Doors and the Dead! But why? And who are they? Who goes to see them, and do they have anal leakage? Robin and Sean revisit the era of the sticky floor. Contains bum notes.
You’d have to say it’s surprising Radio 2 has given Richard Littlejohn a show. It’s not the station for shock jocks, unless the shock is jocks boring their listeners to death or, worse, expiring on air themselves from boredom.
Podcast: Punkcast. Yes! Now on Sky Arts you can see the reinflated Iggy Pop, John Lydon and all (some) of Britain’s Favourite Punk Stars wallow in a four-part seminar on PUNK in capital letters. What the hell was it all about? Revolution, evolution, or just swearing? Sean and Robin get ripped. Contains posh sofas.
Podcast: 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.
