45 Ducktails: Matt Mondanile & dynamics

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.

44 Whitney: Julien Ehrlich, Max Kakacek & izzardry

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.

39 Bully & parties over here

Bullies! Let’s not cheer for that. Antonio enters Bully into the How-long-can-you-take-a-subject competition by teasing Alicia, Stewart, Clayton and Reece about bullies. See what’s going on? Discussions about bullies, that’s what. Who’s your favorite bully? Chime in whenever you can. Take this episode with a grain of whatever you want – which can be salt.

This will make you jump! Kele Okereke of Bloc Party joins Made of Things at Super Bock Super Rock to talk to Antonio about spirituality, communion and connection. Plenty on the album Hymns and you’ll never believe what got Kele started in music. Jump (Bis)!
