The Richy & Jeff Show #17

Big BlackStarts with a bang!

Episode 17 and no Jeff this week as he’s off on another holiday (!!?) – “Treats this podcast like a hotel, that one!” – so, our good friend DJ Mark Cooper steps in to fill the void.

We start the show with a right screeching racket – a track from a classic, influential album with a naughty name – and then get all funky, dancey, spacey, poppy and gothy with a few other flavours thrown in (listen out for the tracks by bands with really great names).

Co-incidentally two bands from Bristol (Richy’s home town) this week, one from ages ago and one from right now.

Jeff “phones in” a piece of melancholy pop for a kind-of randomiser round – it probably could have done with him being here to defend it.

Mark claims the crown for “Richy’s most hated song ever played on the show”. – displacing Laibach’s “The Whisperers” from the throne.

We talk about cover versions – come on UK, The Pet Shop Boys? Seriously!? – a great gig we went to, Krautrock and loads of other stuff.

* There’s some annoying interference from the laptop at points during the show. It’s not too bad, but apologies anyway. We’ll try and sort it for next time.

Thanks as always listening!
