Episode 57 – Tortoise and Hair

Matthew generally prefers the slower tunes but also has a few musicals in his collection!

  • The freakishness of Dennis Potter’s Frank in ‘Blue Velvet’ and how it has changed our view of Orbison’s ‘In Dreams’. How Potter got the job…
  • Saccharine just won’t do: The various kinds of sugar in Rock & Roll.
  • Collage in art is a form that has not yet been completely used up.
  • Kurt Schwitters’ room in the Lake District.
  • The expansive production values of older tracks enticed hip hop producers into sampling.
  • How the mathematics of the MP3 algorithm favours the bass and the treble and loses the dynamics and overtones to be found in the midrange.

…and much more!
