Inside the tumble dryer of pop culture this week… 

REPENT, HARLEQUIN! Is there more to Joaquin Phoenix’s turn in the hit Joker origin movie than half Taxi Driver and half King of Comedy? The movie has divided critics – will it divide our panel?

FIRE UP THE QUATRO: Does the biopic of original beleathered rock vixen  Suzi Quatro convey the supercharged excitement of her doing Can The Can? And do we actually need biopics of every single pop star?

NO MORE KILMISTER NICE GUY: A major reissue programme for rock’s most horrible band Motörhead commences with their two 1979 albums Overkill and Bomber. Special guest Justin Quirk explains their unique and deathless appeal to a blankly confused Andrew. 

WHAT A WAYSTAR: In a unique, spoiler-sodden post-credits sequence Andrew and Siân discuss the nerve-shredding finale to Season 2 of Succession. Could we believe what we were seeing and is it officially the Best Thing on Telly Ever (for now)?

Special guests Iestyn George of NME, GQ and Golf Punk fame and men’s mags man about town Justin Quirk are Siân and Andrew’s oppo’s this week.
