    Rememeber The First Time Meets...Damian Harris - Creative Director of Skint Records

    Remember The First Time? Meets...Damian Harris. Damian is the Creative Director of Skint Records and a recording artist who goes by the alter-ego of 'Midfield General'. Founded in 1995, Skint was the home of Fat Boy Slim, X-Press 2, FC Kahuna and Lo Fidelity Allstars. It is most famously known for being a leader of the Big Beat scene during the '90s. Paul sat down for a conversation with Damian about the 25th anniversary of Skint Records, the Big Beat scene during that period and Big Beat Boutique, the infamous club night held at the Brighton Concorde. The conversation also covers the highs and lows of running a label, what drew him back to the label after a period of absence away, plus the legacy of Big Beat and it's impact on electronic music.

    Episode 7 - Supergrass - I Should Coco

    Episode 7 - Supergrass - I Should Coco

    We're Back! It's Episode 7 of Remember The First Time and we're looking at ‘I Should Coco’, the debut album from Supergrass. Paul, Mark and Charlotte discuss a band that has at times been held hostage by their biggest single, Alright, whilst also exploring how their lyrics reflect the ages they were when written, and how the band’s influences reflect a trio of musicians who spent their formative years neck-deep in Oxford’s music scene.
    We’re joined by Ronan Munro of the legendary Nightshift magazine, to discuss the Oxford music scene, including Truck Festival and its many live venues. Also, Mark brings us this episode's quiztainment, and we decide which track from I Should Coco goes on the playlist!
    And finally, where does the album rank in the Remember The First Time chart? One thing is for sure though, the album is much more than just alright.

    Episode 6 - Massive Attack - Protection

    Episode 6 - Massive Attack - Protection

    The difficult second album, it's a cliché of the music industry, everything's just a rehash of a band's debut work, only the ideas aren't as inventive, the sound not as unique. It's episode 6 of Remember The First Time and we're exploring Massive Attack's second album, Protection. One thing we can definitely say is that it's far from difficult! Paul, Mark and Charlotte discuss a band exploring their sound and reinventing who they are sonically and artistically. Plus Jessica Joy (officially a friend of the Podcast now) returns to discuss her time working in record shops and DJing in Bristol during the 90's, as well as helping Jungle legends get to grips with 45rpm! Also, after Mark's enthusiasm for the quiz in the last episode, Charlotte brings her own unique questions to this month's quizzy business, and we decide which track from Protection goes on the playlist! Finally, where does the album rank in the Remember The First Time chart? You'll have to listen obviously, we're not going to tell you here, we're too sly! ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to this show.

    Episode 5 - Oasis - Definitely Maybe

    Episode 5 - Oasis - Definitely Maybe

    We're up to Episode 5, and to paraphrase Liam Gallagher, we're Remember The First Time and we're covering Oasis. The whole world is jealous of us! It's 25 years since Oasis released Definitely Maybe, so join Mark, Paul and Charlotte as they sit down, strap in and listen to arguably the album that defined mainstream Britpop. How does the album fair today, what cultural impact did it have and just how did Oasis achieve that live sound? Plus Mark chats with James of The Oasis Podcast. All this plus we share your memories of the album, add our favourite track to the RTFTime playlist and rank the album against the others we've reviewed so far. Finally, this episode's quiz, which despite their protestations, Mark and Charlotte definitely enjoyed...definitely, maybe(!) ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to this show.

    Episode 4 - Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible

    Episode 4 - Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible

    Episode 4 of Remember The First Time. In this episode, Paul, Charlotte and Mark explore one of the darkest and most enigmatic albums of the 90's, the Manic Street Preachers' The Holy Bible. It's now 25 years since the release, so how are the messages, themes and issues in the album perceived now? We also chat with Steve Naish, author of Riffs and Meaning: Manic Street Preachers and Know Your Enemy, about his experiences as a Manics fan and what prompted him to write a book about the band. Plus, as always, we have our playlist additions and the ever evolving RTFTime quiz! ***Please take the time to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to this show.
