This week sees the release of the second Grinderman album, smartly titled Grinderman 2.Â To celebrate, in my show tonight I spoke to Jim Sclavunos from the band.Â If you heard the show you will have heard Jim and I discussing the evolution of Grinderman since the first album, and also the video to the single Heathen Child, which you can see below.Â If you thenÂ read the rest of this entry, you will be able to listen toÂ a longer version of the interview, which is available as a podcast.Â
For the very first time, my show has a podcast this week. If you heard the show you will have heard me talking to Eric Pulido of Midlake. What you will have heard is the abridged version of the interview, but the full thing is available for you here now, at the bottom of this blog entry.
Midlake have also backed John Grant on his debut solo album (he used to be the singer in The Czars). A funny thing happened the other day while I was listening to his album, Queen Of Denmark, for the first time. I was reading the brochure for the 16th Bradford International Film Festival while listening. Just as I was reading about Alien being on as part of Widescreen Weekend, John Grant was singing “I feel just like Sigourney Weaver, when she had to kill those aliens“. Spooksville..!
Got 10Â minutes, listen to this? If you very much enjoy hearing me say things like ‘erm, ok, so yes, no’ then you will love singles club. This week we listen to a host of theÂ latestÂ tracks that all the cool kids are listing to. Then mutter about them like a bunch of old WIÂ ladiesÂ complainingÂ at the state of sociaity. Classic.

Introducing our first podcast, not quite sure how regular this will be yet. But the pretext is simple. Some of the blog’s authors squabble and talk over each other while stating view points as fact. You can put it on your mobile machines so you’re never too far from BCB.
This week we look at The Twilight Sad, Kate Walsh, Jack White’s new band The Dead Weather and Wild Beasts.
