    Erasure - I Say I Say I Say

    Erasure - I Say I Say I Say

    So far we've been track by track through three Erasure albums - The Neon, Chorus and Snow Globe, as well as the ABBA-Esque EP - so we know we've got a lot of catching up to do. This week we're celebrating the 30th anniversary of I Say I Say I Say - Andy Bell and Vince Clarke's sixth studio album, following the release of their first greatest hits collection. With Martyn Ware on board as producer, the pair delivered yet another synth pop stunner, including the huge single Always.

    Girls Aloud - Tangled Up

    Girls Aloud - Tangled Up

    This week we're back with one of our favourite girl groups - Girls Aloud. This time we're talking about their fourth studio album from 2007 'Tangled Up'. As ever we celebrate the five princesses of pop and enjoy some deeper dives into the music scene of the time which will hopefully educate, entertain and stir up some old musical memories from seventeen (!) years ago.

    In this brand new episode, we're celebrating 30 years since the release of this seminal Blur album. Join us as we travel back to the 90's and the rise of Britpop to see what this quartet of fresh faced Londoners did on their make or break third album, and why it still hits all the right notes three decades later.

    ABBA - Ring Ring

    ABBA - Ring Ring

    We're back with our first episode of 2024! And this year we're doing things a little bit differently. Each month we're going to bring one updated episode previously released on Patreon, one updated episode from our Patreon exclusive series: Further Listening AND at least one brand new episode to all podcasting platforms.
    This week we're continuing the 50th anniversary celebrations of ABBA's Eurovision win by celebrating the album that started it all. Ring Ring was released a year before Eurovision, before ABBA were known as ABBA, but still features fan favourites and some real oddities.
    Do let us know what you think to the episode and the album, and if you haven't already please do leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts. Thanks for listening - it's great to be back!

Always a delight

As a Brit expat in the US I’m naturally a bit out of sync with what’s going on back home. This pod has introduced me to many bands I’d have otherwise probably not come across like Everything Everything. Also good to hear another set of ears on some of existing favorite bands like Duran Duran and New Order. Keep up the good work! Carry On Podcasting indeed

I Am Mr.Awesome ,

Ima just ask

Is this the same dan bull that made the rap “the arch-illager”? It’s my favorite song and he is one of my favorite artists. How does he rap that fast!? Bro does anyone see or read these? No one has responded.

nothing but bangers ,

Lovely lovely

I got wind of this cast from Neil tenant’s post and haven’t looked back- got stuck in so to speak- have spent many a happy quarantine hour dog walking with headphones strapped on and a smile- nothing to take for granted these days. Thanks Dan and Will and keep up the great work in 2021!!
