The bad taste blues
Season 1, Ep. 115
In Episode 115 I make the unusual juxtaposition of old English cross dressing Artist and critic Grayson Perry and gun toting US patriots Five finger death punch in a discussion on taste, is it right to judge what gives someone else their festival joy as I stand on the sidelines and consider the low hanging musical fruit that is FFDP and does it really matter what I think? Seems like we need the casual listener as much as the elitist obsessive but when the hurly burly is done which opinion matters more? are some animals more equal?www.patreon/com/AlanAverill to support the showwww.metalblade.compromo code ALAN in N.America for 10% off your oderwww.hatecouture616.com/promo code ALAN for free shipping

Is music the backdrop to a brand.....not the soundtrack to a life?
Season 1, Ep. 113
In E 113 I explore the idea that music is now the backdrop to peoples brands, where once it was the soundtrack to their lives. Maybe this is the reason music, art and creativity in general now just has less meaning culturally. What % of a modern musicians life is actually songwriting? and what % is social media, what was that like in the 70s, 80s or 90s? what have been some of the changes. You are your own PR and promo department.....festival season is around the corner! the chat will continue!support the show over atwww.patreon.com/AlanAverill
