We talk to the Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra’s Martin White about theatrical triumphs and disasters, abolishing the arts council (mostly Simon saying that, to be fair), dying on stage and drinking shots of Lenor. + Intimidatingly good Accordion based musical brilliance, Remember The Alamo with extra coughing and us giving away more than we intended […]
In porobably the best one yet, we talk to Poet Michael Parker about moving to the planet of the beatniks, reminisce about the time we resigned from our own fundamentalist cabaret as an act of principle and air deep unresolved grievances using the medium of CHAT. Seriously, this one’s great – if you’ve never listened […]
We think that there’s been altogether enough liberal arts inconsequentiality so, for this one, we’re going to take a very in depth journey into Structural Biology with Tom Wylie out of Science who may or may not be planning to destroy the world. Shit got real, the kids.
We are not at all qualified to make any sort of list about the best things of 2013, so we invite equally unqualified but undeniably younger guests Lydia Snodin and Tom Wylie to offer their poorly thought out and inaccurate Podcasts, Games, Books, Films, Cultural Events, Static Mimes, Deaths and other things OF THE YEAR.

We talk to master of English Chanson Philip Jeays about Jake Thackray, Opera, Poppies and the problem with Hastings then make him sing to us.
We talk to David Devant and His Spirit Wife Legends Vessel and Foz about Mushroom based revolutionary theory, the synaesthetic properties of Carry On Actors and why a Mikey Georgeson sings Bing Crosby album would be the best thing of all time + we play two and they play classics old and new. Also, Foz […]
We interrogate the year’s newest Indelicates band members about what they do when they’re not doing this and go on about Burlesque, Fandom, Current generation privilege and other stuff to MAKE U THINK. Also we play one of ours, Emma competes for the filthiest contribution prize and Nick plays a guitar and sings threateningly well.
We talk to Ne’er-Do-Well, lapsed inactivist, poet and current member of The Far Queue – B Twothree about stuff and things, play hits from the shows, go on a bit too long about Gary Glitter and lament these kids you get now with their weird obsession with jobs and careers and such.
We talk to singer, erstwhile frontman of a number of the better sorts of band and star of Job The Musical Chris Hodges about musical beginnings, piano lessons, misogyny and the economics of 15 year olds; we play Unity Mitford and a Thlyds classic and he plays one of his, which is embarassingly good.
Simon and Julia discuss celebrity paedophiles, the futility of rock’n’roll and poetry, orgone accumulators, the intersection of Northern comics and situationist theorists and tits Jordan with Dangerous Poet Jonny Fluffypunk + Old B-Sides they’ve never played before, erotic storytelling and disreputable verse.
