Freaky Trigger and the Lollards of Pop – Series 2, Week 5

Lollards Podcast8 comments • 485 views

Kat’s year 3000 high school paper. Why training apes is a bad idea. Extropians as cybermen. Ray Kurzweil’s argument by graph. Darren Hayes hits a time lock. Tobias X Future warns of death by bacon. Nostradamus predicts Hitler, Mother Shipton predicts lady trousers. Futurists love their food. The Free Design. Rollerball makes no sense. Future sport as war. Centrifugal bumble puppy. David Bowie’s drum and bass is 2005 years out of date. Utopias don’t exist. Busted STILL fancy their teacher.

    Spot the deliberate error…

    In the interest of full disclosure, the first 2000AD prog was in 1978 and Rollerball (1) was 1975. The seventies all roll into one.

    There were no other errors in the show however.

    Hadn’t heard Bowie’s “Little Wonder” in a dog’s age but was not entirely surprised at how closely it resembled and/or anticipated the work of the Klaxons.

    I was surprised and somewhat horrified at how closely it resembled Pete singing it drunkenly in the pub.

    (Klaxons rarely have such “slamming” beatz)

    Sound effects used not used in the show included 1 x Klaxon stolen from the klaxons album, so there could have been compare & contrast.

    we were saying (in the pub) that Little Wonder is Bowie at his Bowie-est* (post-Deram troubadour period anyway) and therefore very easy to imitate.

    *by which we meant “most like tony newley”

    The only time my mum has ever mistaken Bowie for Newley was when she heard “Baal’s Hymn.” Her view was that That Anthony Newley had gone mad and it was all the fault of That Joan Collins.

    You can’t fault her reasoning, about Newley or Bowie.
