The Golden Ducks
Lauryn Hill – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill feat. Abby Dobson (Leonardo’s Bride, Baby et Lulu)
#55. Nearly 3 months since The Golden Ducks dropped our last podcast we are finally back with our 55th!On this podcast we are joined by the uber talented, very funny and super sweet Australian musical legend Abby Dobson.We dissect the debut album by Lauryn Hill ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.We laugh, joke and banter whilst Abby gives us her heart warming take on life in the music industry whilst in between putting the final touches to her dinner for that night.Get on it!
The Kinks – The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society feat. Gaz Roberts (Man & The Echo)
#54. We’re joined by Gaz Roberts from The Golden Ducks latest favourite outfit ‘Man & The Echo’.Gaz selects the 6th studio album by The Kinks ‘The Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society’ to unravel and debate whilst, amongst other things, we discuss Brexit, serial killers, sexual predators, racism and ummmm ‘Hollyoaks’.Another incredibly high brow discussion by The Golden Ducks and one not to be missed.
Michael Jackson – Thriller feat. Andy Platts & Cameron Dawson (Mamas Gun)
#53. For the first time ever we are joined by not one but two very special guests from British 5 piece ‘Mama’s Gun’. We meet, greet and get to know founder and frontman Andy Platts and bass player extraordinaire Cameron Dawson. The boys select Michael Jackson’s 6th studio album and masterpiece ‘Thriller’ as the banter flows, laughter ensues and an all round good time is had by all.
The Rolling Stones – Goats Head Soup feat. Chris Cester (Jet)
#52. We are joined by Australian music royalty and drummer of Rock band ‘Jet’ Chris Cester.We discuss him hanging with Taylor Hawkins in first class, his thoughts on the recent breakdown within his old touring pals Kasabian, knocking around and touring with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney gate crashing him onstage, the profession that is being groupie, epic tour stories, supergroups, and as is the way on The Golden Ducks podcasts the obligatory classic Gallagher Brothers stories.Dialling in from LA Chris was generous, endearing and incredibly funny and even put his burger on hold whilst he finished a near 3 hour podcast with us where we tucked into The Rolling Stones 11th studio album ‘Goats Head Soup’.A special shout out to his other half Steph for her patience whilst we stole her man for a few hours and we urge you to listen right through to the end for the greatest podcast sign off ever!
Bruce Springsteen – The Rising feat. Tom McRae
#51. Joined by English singer songwriter Tom McRae, he selects Bruce Springsteen’s 12th studio album ‘The Rising.
Tom regales us with stories about being nominated for the Mercury Music Award in 2001, touring with Paul Weller, being invited to play Meltdown Festival by Scott Walker, and sharing the stage with Elliot Smith.
Of course we discuss Tom’s career highlight of having his music featured on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, while also dissecting the return of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, the impact of 9/11, and the heartbreaking, and stoic songs that Bruce created out of tragedy.

Pure (Walt) Gold!
I’m a late comer to these fantastic podcasts, which are like eavesdropping on two old mates in a record store. Thoroughly entertaining and even occasionally informative! I’m wondering why TD goes to gigs, as it seems he can never actually remember them! Music nerd (me) heaven 🤘
