Plentycast #18

aka The Impromptu Birthday Cast...

Aye, it was my (Chris's) birthday on Thursday past, I had a relatively quiet day off work and had a few drinks and went to see Lone Pigeon and The Pictish Trail in Leith at night. John was otherwise engaged on Thursday but we agreed to meet up for a couple of libations, finances meant that said libations were in the flat. John suggested we do a podcast, he then suggested we do a podcast for my birthday along the lines of one we did for his and since that seemed like a good idea to me that's exactly what we did...

However, it didn't give me much time to think of songs to play but I think I came up with an OK selection. It is a 90s indie rock heavy playlist, but that's my thing so that's what we're going for. There are probably a few glaring omissions (and I can think of a few off the top of my head) but such is the way of these things. John did the announcing and I did the rest and I hope you like what we came up with. In a recurring theme, it turned into another two-parter...

Hit it says Jocky...

Plentycast #17

What is it somebody once said? April is the cruellest month? Well, it's my birthday this month so I don't want that being particularly cruel and we have some cracking gigs to look forward to the rest of the way (examples of which may well end up being on a future playlist). Speaking of playlists, Velocity Girl was a late addition to the proceedings taking it up to 15 tracks, which may well be the optimum size for this particular podcast given that we ramble on a bit and always near the 90 minute mark. However, I'll always make an exception for Velocity Girl and it's great to hear this song again (and it fits in just perfectly in my opinion).

So yes, the usual mix of the old and the new. We even manage to play three new songs in a row! Wonders will never cease. Just you wait for the 1970s classic rock special! Actually come to think of it, that might happen at one point. What fun...
