Lollards Podcast7 comments • 474 views

Sorry excuses and polite engineering. With Alix, Sarah, Magnus and Rob.

A husband list update. Moloko ‘Sorry’, eventually. Polite vampires and ghosts. Insults from Hergé and Rabelais. Politeness is bad for Magnus. Some song, possibly Abba. Shrigley ‘My Beer’. Expensive booze. Star Turn On 45 Pints ‘Pump Up The Bitter’. All consuming petty irritations make you… bitter. Another song. Recipe gripes. The midweek number 1 is Marnie Stern ‘Patterns on a Diamond Ceiling’

    1. Much laughter this week (and I missed the first 20 mins); the closest thing FTatLoP has come thus far to the ideal of “a conversation in the pub, only on the radio” I think.

    2. You kids are a bit young to be Grumpy Old Lollards tho.

    3. I had completely forgotten the existence of “Pump Up The Bitter”.

    Unfortunately DJ Contrarian reminded me of the horror that was the latter at Club Poptimism a few months ago.

    I recall DLT loving it at the time, particularly the “Mrs Patel” bit.

    In 1988.

    What is even less forgivable is my possession of the track on the Global TV double compilation Cheggers’ Choice which curiously has vanished from the catalogues in the dozen years since its release.

    My word, that Cheggers Choice is a strange old record. A lot of Jonathon King related things, some records that end up on Guilty Pleasures / Vintage Cheese, and some true horrors. I had completely forgotten Maguerita Pracatan – wasn’t she on Clive James’ show a lot?

    On an unrelated note – how come the lollard archive (middle button up top) only goes back to week 8 of season 1? Is there a way of getting at those early nuggets from that page and can it be clearly marked?
