Podcast #138: Buzzcocks, Dr Dre & Jimmy Iovine, Mercury Rev on Bobbie Gentry and more

Feb 02, 06:00 AM

It’s a rather more stylish Bigmouth than usual as GQ magazine editor DYLAN JONES joins us for this week’s pop culture dégustation along with SOPHIE HARRIS of Mojo, Time Out and… yoga?

On the menu this week: Can HBO/BBC4 documentary ‘The Defiant Ones’ make compelling drama from the parallel rise of Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine? Psychedelic backwoodsmen Mercury Rev take on Bobbie Gentry’s country-soul classic ‘The Delta Sweete’ with an army of five-star female vocalists. And weren’t Buzzcocks just FANTASTIC?

Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Studio production by Alex Rees. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
