No, we didn’t fool around with Jay Z. At least I don’t think we did. Anything is possible on episode six of the NO ENCORE podcast as HeadStuff Music Editor Dave Hanratty, Hot Press hero Colm O’Regan and Newstalk’s answer to Patrick Bateman, Craig Fitzpatrick, are finally reunited following a fraught fortnight that was full of fright. If you think that alliteration was good, wait til you hear what Morrissey has to say in the middle of the episode.
As ever, we catch up on all the goings-on in the music world; from Twin Peaks casting a festival’s worth of musicians in its forthcoming return to updates on the sad passing of the one and only Prince. Our main event this week is a lengthy discussion on Beyoncé’s internet-breaking Lemonade, the album that everyone is talking about. But is it any good?
ACT ONE: Reunited and it feels so good.
ACT TWO (5:30): News! Twin Peaks, Jennifer Lawrence <3 Adele and will Smashing Pumpkins 1.0 ride again? Does anyone care? Probably not, tbh.
ACT THREE (17:30): The Song Of The Week welcomes the new iteration of Blink-182 into the world, to a decidedly mixed reception.
ACT FOUR (28:15): Further reflection on the loss of The Purple One, and a dramatic reading of Steven Patrick Morrissey’s oh-so-Morrissey reaction.
ACT FIVE (39:00): Three white guys discuss the black female empowerment album that is Beyoncé’s arresting Lemonade.
