Podcast #137: Fyre Festival, junk shop glam, Specials, The Beat and more
“It’s not fraud, it’s just false advertising!” Special guests and major influencers ALEXIS PETRIDIS of The Guardian and LUCY O’BRIEN, author of ‘Madonna: Like An Icon’, join regulars Siân and Andrew on a microlite to misery as we gaze in disbelief at not one but BOTH Fyre Festival documentaries. What were the best bits, what did we learn about “millennials” and is there enough Evian in the world to douse this Bonfire Of The Inanities? Hey, dig our on-brand orange tile…
PLUS It’s la recherche de Fred Perrys perdu with new albums from The Specials – their first in 37 years – and the faction of The Beat that includes Ranking Roger. And we FEEL THE NOIZE on a new 60-track compilation of ultra-obscure glam rock from the actual real-life 1970s, ‘All The Young Droogs’.
Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Studio production by Alex Rees. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
