52 Lush & Primavera Sound

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.

51 Jagwar Ma & Jinder & racism

Jagwars! A fantastic time hanging out with Jono, Gabriel and Jack of Jagwar Ma! We get in touch with their roots, side projects, moving to Lisbon, changing song names – and posttraumatic stress disorder. On the podcast version, thoughts on Jinder Mahal.

49 Tortoise: John Herndon & fistula round 2

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.

48 Unsane & medical strike

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!

47 Drive Like Jehu & fistula

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.

43 White Fence: Tim Presley & lower back

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.

42 Biffy Clyro: James and Ben Johnston & royal trumble

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.
