Status Quo in Bula Quo! (with Mark Harrison)

Episode 76,  Aug 25, 05:00 PM

This week's film is one that Graham struggles to accept really exists - which is why it's a good job Mark Harrison from Film Stories has rejoined the podcast to reassure him that this wasn't a hallucination. Did we really watch a movie where Status Quo try and foil SNL veteran Jon Lovitz's underground organ trafficking ring in an extended homage to The Deer Hunter? It appears that we did, and now you can enjoy our confusion in podcast form.

Among the many topics of discussion, we talk about Status Quo's very different reputations on both sides of the Atlantic, about their ill-fated 1990s lawsuit against Radio 1, about Lovitz's three claims to eternal fame, and about the film's mysterious attitude towards the news-gathering profession. There is also a bit about lollipops and a certain Steven Spielberg movie which made Graham laugh out loud when he was editing this, and that's never happened before. It's a good one, folks!

The next one also features Mark - it's a retrospective of every single Bond theme and it's coming atcha in early September.
