The team comprises three Glaswegians Paul Moody, David Moody and Joe McGlynn who are passionate about Queen and feel that this wonderful band's music should be discussed more.

    Queen (first album)...revisited

    Queen (first album)...revisited

    We go back to Queen's first album and the album that started the podcast off for us. The reason? Well we didn't break down the full album on our first episode as we were still working it all out. So we wanted to go back and talk about all of the tracks and in more detail. We found that we had even changed our minds a little since that first pod.

    NOT: Alice Cooper - From the Inside

    In this NOT episode we take a request from a Twitter follower JournoJoolz, who requested we do an episode on Alice Cooper's 4th solo album From the Inside. The album is a concept about Alice's time in a New York asylum while recovering from alcoholism and was worked up with Bernie Taupin. We dive into this album that is barnd new to us, despite coming out in 1978.

Funny, insightful, profane

A treat for all Queen fans to spend time in the potty-mouthed microverse of these three Glaswegians. Their knowledge and ears as musicians bring lots of new angles to one’s appreciation of even the most familiar songs. Well researched, moving and they even do the hard yards of digging into the band’s dodgiest solo work.

A Queen podcast of The Magic Kind

A great podcast for Queen fans. Paul, David and Joe delve into each Queen studio album with enjoyable and insightful chat about each track. Their love of Queen comes across, but they’re not afraid to slag off the odd arrangement, ludicrous lyric or most of The Miracle album. One tip: don’t accidentally listen to them at double speed (incomprehensible). Entertaining, i don’t always agree with them, but as a lifelong Queen fan, thet still help me look at the albums afresh.
