Seaside Pod Review (A Queen Podcast)

Welcome to the Pod

Season 1, Ep. 0

Kev and Randy lay out the plans for this spontaneous and hopefully humourous look at the catalogue of one of the greatest rock bands to ever grace the stage: Queen.


Every week, we'll will spin a wheel which contains songs from the entire Queen catalogue. Every week we'll talk about that song and look at background and live performances as well as listening through the song and commenting on different aspects of it. That song then comes off the wheel. At the end of each episode we'll each give our thumbs up or down for the song and remove it from the wheel. This format is lovingly copied from the most excellent And The Podcast Will Rock show, hosted by Corey Morrissette and Mark Camire. If you're into Van Halen, make sure you check that out!


We'll also most likely end up with guests and we'll almost certainly do bonus episodes covering things like live shows, books, and films.


We look forward to chatting with you on social media and you can find us in the following places:

  • 9. Funny How Love is

    58:39
    He unscrews the cap of a new whiskey bottle, shuffles about in his candle-lit hovel in his candle lit hovel, like some kind of tit, with blue fingers in mittens, he smells like the cats, and the neighbours he sickend. But enough about Randy, I’m going to make him blush! Settle down with your best cat, your best whiskey and your best mittens and get ready for some Queen, cos that’s what we’re talkin’ about!If Kev were to title this episode, he'd probably call it “Funny how buried the vocals are” or “The spleen isn’t the sexiest organ, but the body isn’t complete without it”Today's episode looks at "Funny How Love Is"; the gloriously glammy halfway house between the behemoth "March of the Black Queen" and the equally seismic "Seven Seas of Rhye".NOTE: Skip forward to 16:45 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.The song featured at the end of this week's episode is a devilishly funky little tune called "Kind of Love" by Randy's old band Absofunkinlutely.

  • 8. Khashoggi's Ship

    54:48
    An interesting fact about Saudi Arabia for you is that Oil was first struck there in March 1938, in the Dammam Oilfield. In Riyadh, around 100 camels per day are sold, and it’s home to the world’s largest sandy desert. Oh, also, they murder journalists in cold blood and are surruptitiously buying up sports franchises all over the world to distract us from the fact. Never mind eh, let’s talk some Queen!If Kev were to title this episode, he'd probably call it "Who said that my party was all over?" or possibly "Get off my fucking boat!"Today's episode looks at the continuation of the part with the second song on "The Miracle", "Khashoggi's Ship".NOTE: Skip forward to 14:07 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.The song featured at the end of this week's episode is God Save the Queen, Pt 3 bu Randy's old band Absofunkinlutely.

  • 7. Water

    32:27
    It’s not the A side and it’s not the C side, well it’s the seaside as in all one word s e a… you get what I’m saying.It’s the B SIDE pod review. We’re not digging into the main catalogue today because Randy’s off working on some or other big budget Hollywood production and rubbing shoulders with the Scorseses of the world, but we’re going deep, and we’re still sittin around talking about Queen!If Kevin were to title this episode, he'd probably call it “Summon the Kraken!” or possibly, “Geez, this didn’t get finished for The Miracle and My Baby Does Me did?”Today's episode looks at Brian's half finished doodle "Water" which was included on "The Miracle Collector's Edition"NOTE: Skip forward to 8:37 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.The song featured at the end of this week's episode is Bottom End Machine by RandyWoods Band.

  • 6. White Man

    01:07:34
    White men have a lot to answer for. Now don't get all Jordan Peterson on me and say "NOT ALL WHITE MEN!" No, not all, but damn well enough! And certainly historically. But is it a good idea for rock stars to tackle serious subjects? And how does Brian do with this one? It's back to back Bri and this week's episode is full of Stampeders and Carneys. Kev also gives an update on the upcoming Queen World Cup!If Randy were to title this episode, he'd probably call it "Don't you see the light behing your blackened skies" or possibly "White man builds a big fire and sits far way. Native man builds a small fire and sits close"Today's episode means we've now covered half of A Day At The Races. It's time for Brian's screed against colinialism, "White Man"NOTE: Skip forward to 18:13 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.The song featured at the end of this week's episode is Fyah Dey, by Randy's good pal Oral Fuentes.

  • 5. Sail Away Sweet Sister

    01:06:42
    Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, I know you’re my sister, but I'm looking at you... You could sort of condense the lyrics in this one down to that sentence. Nylon strings, epic bass, and a soulful piano make up the bones of this song, but its muscle comes from the brilliance of Brian's voice and guitar work. There's a change in the format and the boys are ready to rock. There were five different manifestations from this week's album, so the wheel spun up none of them!If Randy were to title this episode, he'd probably call it "How come you behave this way" or possibly, "Maybe Bri's parents shoulda got the boy a dog"Today's episode covers our fourth track from The Game, Brian's sinister lamentation, "Sail Away Sweet Sister"NOTE: Skip forward to 23:52 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.The song featured at the end of this week's episode is Bode's Galaxy, by Randy's former band, Absofunkinlutely.

  • 4. Put Out the Fire

    52:57
    In materials science, quenching is the rapid cooling of a workpiece in water, gas, oil, polymer, air, or other fluids to obtain certain material properties. A type of heat treating, quenching prevents undesired low-temperature processes, such as phase transformations, from occurring. It does this by reducing the window of time during which these undesired reactions are both thermodynamically favorable and kinetically accessible; for instance, quenching can reduce the crystal grain size of both metallic and plastic materials, increasing their hardness. All that has fuck all to do with this week's episode.If Randy were to title this episode, he'd probably call it "There's nothing burning!" or possibly "Why didn't Rog' put gong on this track?"Today's episode covers the side two opener to Hot Space, Brian's gun-law-hoo-haw, "Put Out the Fire"NOTE: Skip forward to 11:58 if wanna get straight into the manifestations and wheel spin.

  • 3. Bohemian Rhapsody

    01:30:54
    Today's episode covers the big cahuna. The monster. The behemoth. None more Queen. The song that didn't just put Queen on the map, but also tore the map up into tiny little shreds and force fed the pieces to an ungrateful music press who just didn't get it."Unfortunately, Queen’s lyrics are not the stuff of sonnets." - TIME magazine"...a brazen hodgepodge..." - Rolling Stone"A superficially impressive pastiche of incongruous musical styles..." - Melody Maker"It has no immediate selling point whatsoever" - Record Mirror"They sound extremely self-important" - NME"The critics can go fuck themselves" - Cardinal WoodsIf Randy were to title this episode, he'd probably call it "Nothing really matters" or possibly, "I wonder who played gong on this track?"It's Bo Rhap time.NOTES: Skip forward to 38:47 if you want to skip the preamble.The song featured at the end of the episode is "Hint of Grey" written and recorded by our very own Ian Winick in his former duo, John Loves Julie.

  • 2. Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)

    01:04:27
    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Is life real? Can you breastfeed yourself? And what are those stains on your pillow? If I were to title this episode, I’d probably call it “Nothing is Real” or possibly “The milky boobs are on me!”.Today's episode covers Freddies ode to the fallen Beatle, "Life Is Real (Song for Lennon)".NOTES: Skip forward to 30:39 if wanna get straight into the manifestations from our dynamic duo and their dastardly discordants!

  • 1. If You Can't Beat Them

    01:17:05
    Randy's having trouble with the word minfastition, maniseftation, fannystemnation, well whatever it is, Randy just can't say it! In a first for the podcast, there is live confectionary eating and mroe discussion about cake than anyone needs to hear, but, we've drawn a line under it now, so we can all put it behind us! We're talking filler, we're talking Jazz, and we're definitely talking shite!If Kev were to title this episode, he'd probably call it “You’re never gonna help yourself”, or possibly, “Deacy definitely didn’t deliver!”Today's episode covers the Deacy's side one contribution to Jazz, "If You Can't Beat Them".NOTES: Skip forward to 33:51 if wanna get straight into the sunnydestinationd, the funnysensations... the, ach you know, wheel spin! Also, the sound quality is a little bit off on this one as the technical frustrations we had setting up to record in person the way we tried didn't yield the best results, so we won't be doing that again.The song featured at the end of the episode is "Never Said"; Kev's platonic love song to his childhood best friend who succumbed to his cancer in 2017.
