The Afterword #105: The 80scast
Twang finally finds the key to the pod and virtually gathers with Tiggerlion, Dave Amitri and special guest Hilary to discuss the 80s, a decade beloved and reviled by equal numbers of people. Perhaps, the team muse, a decade with plenty to feel down about in the world needed frothy, fun, happy and irreverent music to provide some respite. Unless, Twang sighs, you were a miserable git anyway.
The Afterword #104: The Podpod
Twang welcomes Leedsboy, MilkeyBarnet, and FeedbackFile to the pod for an involuted podcast about podcasts. For anyone who hasn't got into the wild west that is podcasts all is here for a successful pod life. For regular listeners, many recommendations are within from minor league football, politics, music, true crime and even podcasts for pets. Please add further recommendations in the comments!
The Afterword #103: Disco!
Twang welcomes Tiggerlion, Milkybarnet and Moseley Moles to the pod to discuss the enduring phenomenon that is disco. From its fully formed arrival in the mid 70 it quickly overwhelmed all competition through mutations into pop, rock and even jazz and all fell to the irresistible argument that it’s fun and everyone can dance to it. Even mass burning of Bee Gees albums couldn’t kill it, and and when it survived disco treatments from Rod Stewart and Kiss, lesser forms just gave up and went home.
The Afterword #102: Ian Anderson returns!
Twang welcomes (The Mighty) Tull supremo IanAnderson to the pod, who popped in to talk about the not one but two tours he's running in parallel this year. We also cover the greasy spoon days of touring, guitarists past and present, choice of supermarket and the ultimate definition of prog from an anointed Prog God.
The Afterword #101: The One to Onecast – Mousey
Twang welcomes Mousey to the pod for a 121 natter. We discover growing up in New Zealand, being a nerdy piano kid, seeing ELP at Wembley and writing songs for Play School. In a long career as a successful musician our guest is remains refreshingly keen and still got a kick out of walking across the Abbey Road crossing even whilst recording there.
The Afterword #100: The Recordingcast
In our 100th episode Twang welcomes Skirky, FentonSteve and Mr. Pee to the pod to discuss how music is recorded. Partly a history lesson, partly a set of opinions strongly held and fiercely defended, the team can agree (more or less) that it's never been easier to make and consume music and that this must be a good thing.
