Snakes! Of the hot persuasion. We go back with the outstanding Drive Like Jehu and take look at the US elections (because they hadn’t happened yet) at Primavera Sound 2016 in Porto. John, Mike and Rick talk to Antonio about healthcare, but also getting back together and becoming young conductors. Also, check the video version on YouTube for some juicy live footage of an awesome show.
Flames! John Grant talks to Antonio about grim stuff: growing up in environments of little tolerance, dealing with pain, class systems in big countries and crazy people on the streets in America. Then, concepts of freedom, addiction and podcasts. And then fun stuff: remembering Madeline Kahn, speaking in Russian and doing an ad for Coca-Cola.
Ducks! Their tails, that is! Matt Mondanile joins Antonio to talk tails of ducks (the haircut), converting people to things, knowledge and virtue. And then some Disney talk and some hobbies talk. And then talk of banging your head and Italian prog talk. And some gear talk at the end if you’re into nerding out on guitars.
Champions! Julien and Max from the wonderful band Whitney were in Lisbon for Vodafone Mexefest and stole everyone’s hearts with their first ever duo only show. They also know their football (of the soccer variety) and speak to Antonio about attending some important matches. Also, Elton John. Also, Cristiano Ronaldo or Axl Rose? Also, Eddie Izzard came to Lisbon.
Fences! White ones, in particular. Tim Presley talks to Antonio about recording with Ty Segall and Cate Le Bon, ending up playing in The Fall, something in Tim’s bag, why isn’t he a rapper, guitars or whatever – and breaking them on someone’s back. Also, thoughts on Fun Haze (?) and, of course, fences.
Wolves! Of winter, if you know your Biffy Clyro. We go back with James and Ben to talk old school Biffy and more recent Biffy. Also, thoughts on Trump/Bane, the early records and sticking together. Before that, half an hour on the Royal Rumble. You’ve been warned! This episode is in association with Altamont and Fest Mag.
