The Queen Podcast where we cover a queen song and talk about the methods and the madness of the greatest band of all time ....Queen. Each week, life long Queen fanatics Jai, Matt and Ian talk about and rate a Queen song and challenge each other to faithfully record a version of a famous, or not so famous track.
Ep 80 : Machines (or ‘Back to Humans’)
Matt takes on Machines (or ‘Back to Humans’) Brian and Roger's dystopian track off of The Works. We chat Sci-fi, lyrics, song structures and much more, and of course the scores, I suspect it will surprise our audience.
Ep 79 : Sheer Heart Attack
Ian tackles Roger's curious call back to a previous album "Sheer Heart Attack" off of News Of The World. We chat Punk, live versions, the power of the chug and of course the scores, leaving Jai in a state of shock.
Ep 78 : I Want It All with Dakesis
This week features Birmingham's finest Progressive Metal band Dakesis taking on I Want It All, Brian's rocker off of The Miracle. We discuss Lyrics and performances ...and are Queen Prog? How to deliver a Freddie Vocal, Deacy Magic, double Kick, Brian as a Guitarist? And of course the songs.
Ep 77 : Coming Soon
Ian tackles Roger's effort Coming Soon off of The Game. Under discussion, its place on the album, lyrical content, guitar solos, much more, and of course the scores.
Ep 76 : Delilah
Ian tackles Freddie Mercury's whimsical track off of Innuendo. We chat indulgence and guitar sounds and production and much more. And a round of controversial scoring and not for the reasons you would imagine.
Ep 75 : Sleeping On the Sidewalk
Matt tackles Brian's little blues ditty off of side 2 of Queen's News Of The World album. We chat the normal nonsense around lyrics, Roger's Drumming style, John and Brian's Blues credentials, and of course the scores on the doors.
Of the Queen podcasts I listen to this might be my favorite. I learn so much about song construction and the strengths and -dare I say- weaknesses of each member of Queen. “The methods and the madness” as our hosts say. I often find myself obsessively stopping the podcast to listen to the song - over and over again. What should be a thirty minute listen often takes me an hour a half.
Well done fellas!
I love this show. These guys are so nerdy about Queen it makes me smile so much. I’ve never had any other friends who are as hardcore about Queen as I am, so these discussions are so fun to hear. And I love how much care they put into their covers of these songs! One of which I think is almost as good as the original (Ride the Wild Wind. For the record I like that song.)
