Episode 73 – Pop vs. Rock

We are joined this week by Oz funk rocker, Dion Palumbo whose new 10-piece band, Palumbo & the Funk are reinvigorating the London funk scene.


  • Snorting Fire with Johnny Cash & the Sons of the Pioneers.
  • The mighty organ: how the Doors and the Stranglers tricked us into thinking they were Rock bands
  • Melt Yourself Down: A global super-group is born to fix your life.
  • If Mark E. Smith buys you a pint it’s curtains mate!
  • The gloriously wistful, meandering R&B sound of Florence Joelle.
  • John rightly blasts the Eurovision Song Contest for being utterly naff & an insult to great pop music. An area in which Britain has nothing to prove.
  • More than an East End tradition: the sounds and visions of Billy Childish.
  • How many bands can you name that are named after a kind of chicken?
