Games! The lovely Captain Sensible of punk rock legends The Damned talks to Antonio at Reverence Valada about beer, wine, football, playing in Portugal for the first time, penis-shaped cakes, writing the theme to Sensible Soccer and the game itself (quite a lot, actually), Captain’s favorite games, the future with The Damned, being on The Young Ones, Machine Gun Etiquette, being gaseous on stage and – unrelated – flies.
Precious talent Sampha is on Made of Things! He talks with Antonio at Primavera Sound about playing the festival, the feeling you get from Blood On Me, conflict and colors, his favorite comedy, Kanye West (we had to) and Michael Jackson. And more stuff too, but come find out.
Lies! Absolute darlings Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley (friend of the show) are DRINKS and guests in one of the best episodes of Made of Things yet! They talk to Antonio about siblings, haircutting Cate, Tim’s super secret, playing Tremor, capes and dresses, terrible drinks, dogs and wales (the animal). Is the truth even real?
Goats! White Reaper are a bunch of fun rock kids and they’re on this hilarious episode of Made of Things! They have a new album out, but this was recorded at last year’s Primavera Sound in Barcelona. Sam, Ryan, Nick and Tony speak to Antonio and guest co-host Vera about horror movies, tattoos, bowls, spoopy, Hello Kitty, Monster Mash, the Best Show, crying and White Reaper $20. Join the chaos!
Lush may be no more (again), but that’s not stopping us from posting the chat Antonio and guest co-host Vera had with Miki, Emma and Phil of the British shoegaze legends at last year’s Primavera Sound in Barcelona. It’s a very fun snapshot of this period when they got back together and we talk about Porto, women in music and Rachel Goswell’s gossip.
Tortoises! We get the awesome John Herndon on this episode of Made of Things at Primavera Sound last year. John talks to Antonio about the feel of playing in Tortoise, being a fan of Dinosaur Jr, David Essex impressions, massaging grandmothers and Kiss movies. Also, we get weirdly interrupted on the podcast version and dad deals with fistula again.
Movies! Kick ass band Unsane join Antonio at Primavera Sound last year for a cool hang. Vincent, Chris and Dave teach Antonio about the most unwelcome cross between wrestling and women, but also talk about bumping into people around the world, the band’s gruesome album covers and other heavy stuff, the Evil Dead and lots of other gory suggestions. Also, at the end AND exclusively on the podcast version, Vinnie gives his insight on the bands that were around Unsane!
