Plentycast #30

a.k.a Here's One For The Teenagers...

We're nothing if not on the ball and hip to all the latest musical trends at PC Towers and so we present to you a special podcast of our favourite Creation / Sub Pop /Pacific North West tunes. There is nothing here beyond 1996 so if you're looking for something up-to-date then I'm afraid you're in the wrong place! However, if these songs are new to you then you're in the right place!

This 'cast was inspired by recent TV watching and book reading and cooked up over a Mosque Kitchen curry one Friday night so you have BBC4 to thank for showing the Creation Records doc, the Pearl Jam doc and No Nirvana repeat and me for reading Mark Yarm's Seattle music scene tome Everybody Loves Our Town. It's a whopping 1hr 53mins long so pull up a comfy chair and put the kettle on!

We'll return to our usual fare at a later date. Oh wait, this is quite like our usual fare...

...a.k.a. The Fence (and others) cast...

And so we decamp to Cellardyke in the East Neuk of Fife for a special edition of the podcast. We're joined by a myriad of characters along the way at the kitchen table (and thanks to Jen, Thom, Sarah, Kelly and Lynsey for chipping in along the way) but the main guest is Andy Cleary of Club Smart Patrol in London.

The main reason for this special show is the Fence Records Hott Loggz all-day gig that we were all attending so I thought it would be good to do a Fence themed podcast. Andy chose all of the songs we played and did a fine, fine job, there's 7 Fence, or Fence-affiliated acts and 3 songs off recent LPs that are tickling his fancy at this particular time.

Stay tuned too for 25 Things You Didn't Know About Zooey Deschanel and a list of our order from the Anstruther Fish Bar...
