Show Notes

Graham and Charles share their experiences of interviewing former Wet Wet Wet singer Marti Pellow about his latest solo tour and ruminate on the way his smart thinking has helped him become the entertainer he is today, mixing stage musicals with experimental albums. From this, Charles explores the history of bands who for one reason or another have had to replace their lead singer. Graham reviews the latest of Kenneth Branagh's Agatha Christie adaptations and the marvel of his particular embodiment of Hercule Poirot's infamous moustache. Graham reflects on reading Harry Sword's debut book on the history of drones within music, Monolithic Undertow - In search Of Sonic oblivion. Charles ends on a positive reappraisal of Sting.
