Show Notes

Reeling from the shock of Marcelo Bielsa parting company with Leeds United and the continuing atrocities in Ukraine, Charles and Graham then discuss the latest attempt to jolt some life back into cinema audiences. Graham celebrates the new album, If Words Were Flowers by soul singer Curtis Harding and Charles reports on the powerful new documentary film exploring the experiences of migrant communities in the UK, Hostile, directed by Sonita Gale (not Monica, apologies, Sonita). Charles also reflects on the death of thunderous US musician Mark Lanegan - who rose to fame as frontman for Seattle grunge band Screaming Trees and went on to sing for Queens Of The Stone Age and collaborate with Isobel Campbell and Soulsavers, as well as  branching out into writing books.
