Your NO ENCORE listening experience returns following a nice long weekend in which we holidayed to other rooms of the house. Exotic stuff. This week, Craig tries to rein himself in during The Strokes review, Dave visits Sweden via the magic of video calling, and there’s a top five deep dive with brevity at the forefront…
ACT ONE [5:45]: News, featuring various hot takes on Covid-19, further cancellations and 10 years of “pure mothafuckin’ magic”.
ACT TWO [25:34] Dave chats with arts and culture journalist Derek Robertson, who managed to go to actual real-life gigs in recent days.
ACT THREE [36:49]: The Strokes return to usher in The New Abnormal.
ACT FOUR [54:48]: The boys run down their favourite songs that get their business done inside two minutes. Lively, this one.
