..here’s the new Only a Podcast theme tune, made by us! In this episode: what’s good about biopics? Should they educate or entertain? Do you prefer the factual or the fanciful? El Tele has made a start on Danny Boyle’s ‘Pistol’ series, based on the memoirs of Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, and we discuss biopics we have enjoyed (or not!). Slade, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Freddie Mercury and Elton John all feature. What will Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis and Ethan Coen’s Jerry Lee Lewis films show us? Get in touch to let us know your likes and dislikes.
The Captain has albums by xPropaganda and Mavis Staples & Levon Helm on his playlist, and is earwormed by a chill out club track that samples Mick Hucknall. TV reviews include Obi-Wan Kenobi, a documentary on Rolling Stone journalist Ben Fong-Torres and we discuss the staggering expense and technology behind Abba’s visual Voyage experience.
