Episode 47 – Are Friends Acoustic?

by | Oct 8, 2023 | 0 comments

A titan of electronic music goes acoustic after 40 years? How can this be?

Once again we talk about the impact of Rainn Wilson and the Geography of Bliss, and going further into the new series of Mortimer and Whitehouse, which this week stars Lee Mack, off the substitute’s bench, and interesting to both of us. The Captain rushes through Oh Brother, the excellent biography from John Niven, and ElTele introduces us to new band Coppola.

We finish up by discussing always funny but often absurd names for covers bands (do you have a favourite?), and a brief dip into sport.
