Each David Bowie album is unique. Some are universally lionised, some regarded as merely legendary, some, pretentious codswallop. But we all have our favourites. In this series of podcasts, I meet up with writers, musicians, critics and assorted woodland folk, to explore their choice of album in rambling roundelays of free-form facting, anorak-grade geekery, pompous pontification, impassioned argument and highly-contentious chat. I like to think these podcasts exercise the minds of some of t ...
 
The host of radio shows, loved across Canada since the 1990s, Jeff Woods started up this artist interview & performance podcast from his home studio in 2016. People have called him “the voice of classic rock”, and with good reason, since Woods created and hosted the Legends of Classic Rock radio series, and subsequently the Records & Rockstars Radio Show, but at his heart is sitting down for conversations with today’s musicians, to talk about the songs and about lives spent immersed in music ...

1979's 'Lodger' is an often underrated album but upon further inspection, this blend of new wave, electrorock, globally-inspired music and esoteric experimentation stands the test of time. It's a shift away from the previous two 'Berlin' albums and probably the most Eno-esque of all Bowie's records, until 1995's '1. Outside'. The tough line up of C…
 
With our tin cans and string stretching across the locked down nation, Stuart and I return to conclude our scuttle through the dark underworld of Bowie's Diamond Dogs. In this episode, we rattle through what we quaintly call 'Side 2', taking in the soul-inflected death disco vibe and pondering its debt to Orwell. Along the way, we look at the dispa…
 
"This is not the end. This is not the beginning of the end. But it is the end of the beginning." Winston Churchill could have been talking about this episode of Albumtoalbum, in which Stuart and I continue our deep dive into the world of Bowie's* Diamond Dogs and conclude the first part of our chipper chat session. In this handy, pocket-sized episo…
 
In the year of the Diamond Dogs... while the zombie peoploids were crawling through Hunger City yowling with rage, a cheerful 13 year old lad in Wigan encountered Bowie's chilling, thrilling 'Diamond Dogs' LP. Today, Stuart Maconie, BBC DJ, critic and author joins me for a wonderfully rambling and enjoyable chat about all things Diamond Dogs. In th…
 
The final part of our king-sized 'Outside' chat with the MC of DB, Nicholas Pegg sweeps us up in a torrent of facts, trivia, analysis and architecture and morality.

The Franny Wisp & Her Washboard show is a funny, self-deprecating response to a society that is preoccupied with youth, beauty, success and romantic relationships. Her satire and wit are expressed musically through song, spoken word, washboard rhythms and a kick drum. Franny and Jeff get along like a house on fire. https://www.audible.ca/pd/Radio-R…
 
Released in September 1995, 1. Outside (The diary of Nathan Adler or the art-ritual murder of Baby Grace Blue: A non-linear Gothic Drama Hyper-cycle), was [Wikipedia says] "set in 1999, in which the government, through its arts commission, had created a new bureau to investigate the phenomenon of Art Crime". How disappointing that 1999 in fact, jus…
 
WELCOME TO THE NEW episode of Album To Album in which we meet former Labour Home Secretary and award-winning memoirist Alan Johnson, former MP for Hull West and Hessel. We met recently in his Hull offices – ‘in Spiders From Mars land!’ as he proudly informs me - to reminisce about Hunky Dory, the 1971 LP which ch-ch-changed everything, not only for…
 
The long-delayed and oft-promised second part of my two-parter on 'Space Oddity' with Samira Ahmed is finally here, almost 50 years to the month after Part 1. It covers not only the latter half of Bowie's 1969 LP, but veers across a number of topics as we trudge through the dampened grass to approach the summer's end. Tall Venusians will be passing…
 
Take an ADHD connoisseur of music, the history of glacially-deposited rock, and growing weed, and give him a guitar and a microphone and that is this. Starring the front man of the band Glacial Erratic. When Dave started out, he simply wrote lyrics that made him laugh out loud.He’s still doing that. And the world is laughing along with. Included: I…
 
When you’ve played 2000 shows, and practiced in your bedroom since you were 14, you get good.

A capital ‘R’ rock band featuring rock stars from other bands, like I Mother Earth, and My Darkest Days, I’m joined for a get-to-know the band chat by Sal Costa and Brian Byrne.

These two tag team their way into the hearts of everyone they encounter, through music and sense of humour. Roddy led the band Rebel Emergency with whom he stage surfed, literally. Pat’s played more shows than the Grateful Dead (maybe), including his years leading the acclaimed Walkerviles. Both have done time in NYC and have stories about that and…

The return of the solo gem known as Sages, aka Racquel Hardy (ex of Falcon Jane, my guests Oct. 2018).

Performing acoustically, his tough-luck inspired soul-healing blues, and telling the story of Swampy & The Note Troll (featuring producer Josh Maitland), is Cody Thompson, with percussionist B…
 
Here we are, with the shimmering soulboy, Bowie '75 style and 'Young Americans', that louche blend of slow jams, dirty funk and smooth grooves. Bowie's 1975 album veered dramatically away from the trashglam-apocalypso of 1974's 'Diamond Dogs' and presaged the chilly Eurotech of 1976's 'Station To Station' with joyous verve and energy. 'Blue eyed so…

Low! The 1976 masterpiece which saw our man frazzled and burned-out, on the cusp of mayhem, relocated from the madness of Los Angeles and teaming up with Brian Eno for a lot of experimental doodling and dallying and along the way, coming up with one of the most revolutionary albums in rawk history. The opening salvo of the 'Berlin Trilogy', Low is …
 
We return from a short international expedition with Part 2 of our Hunky Dory hoe-down in which acclaimed Bowie biographer and Albumtoalbum regular Nicholas Pegg and I sit down to try and work out what makes Bowie's 1971 album just so damn good. I can't seem to string together a coherent sentence in this episode, which I will defend, by saying Hunk…
 
It's the album that, arguably, revealed more of Bowie than any other, before or since. It's a masterstroke of songwriting, melodies, esoterica and soul-searching. It's Hunky Dory and in the latest episode of Album To Album, we embark on the first of a two-part discussion of Bowie's 1971 landmark work, with our good pal Nick Pegg in the house to dis…
 
Heaven's In Here! Under The God! Video Crime! Bus Stop! The critical consensus is one of mockery and disdain, but to paraphrase a magazine article of the time - "Are Tin Machine Crap? Discuss" - the wonderful Charlotte Hatherley and I reconvene in the kitchen to crack open a bottle of wine and do just that. We ponder the stories behind the Tin Mach…
