Captiva girl ,

Absolutely brilliant!

I’ve loved their music for years, my daughters first concert was Blaggards, it doesn’t hurt that Patrick is easy on the eyes. At a recent concert he mentioned they do a podcast, I had no idea! Now I’m playing catch up and loving every minute! Ta boys!!

Jackie_Treehorn ,

I love it!

Congrats. Really. The content is fantastic and extremely interesting.

Thanks for all the hard work, Smalley.

Merch Maiden ,

You don't need a restraining order!

Always packed with great inside information, history, references to other bands, pubs and podcasts. But the most fun for me is picking out Patrick's off the cuff analogies and comments. Always entertaining, just like their live shows. I guarantee you will never see the same Blaggards show twice. You may think you know the lyrics, but you don't. LEMMMMONNNN CAKE!!!
