For PART ONE, go here: http://www.indelicates.com/2013/12/30/julia-indelicates-review-of-the-year-2013/ Much of the merchandise we made for Diseases of England was stuff we’d not tried to make before. We’ve been making our legendary Lyric books with footnotes and essays in them since our second album Songs For Swinging Lovers, but Diseases of England saw us sewing dolls and designing [...]
What a year! I think me and Simon have made more things this year than in any previous, thanks to the different things we decided to make for the packages of our fourth album Diseases of England. We’d already started crowd-funding (directly through our sites) in October 2012, and released the first tracks from the [...]
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.
Because we simply cannot stop MAKING THE ARTS – we are, today, releasing the newest INDELICATES THING. Featuring Four brand new studio recorded songs + ten original Diseases of England Demos, Artwork and a cryptic (not especially) digital poster – this is INDELICATES CANON. It’s like when on those David Bowie albums where you get [...]
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.
