I’m not sure this really tells anything about being in Nantes, other than some of the music I’ve been listening to as I’ve wandered around. Tracks include: OMD, Lou Reed, Brian Eno, Prefab Sprout, Roxy Music, Melanie De Biasio, Max Richter, Arcade Fire, The Beatles, Blood Orange, Yo La Tengo, Robert Fripp & Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush, Beyond the Wizards Sleeve, Pet Shop Boys, David Bowie.
Yesterday I visited the Musee D’Arts De Nantes, which has recently reopened after a major refurbishment. I wanted to share my thoughts about this gallery, as it is well worth visiting and taking time to learn about. Music in this podcast includes: Fujiya & Miyagi, U2, Snow atrol, Talking Heads, Simon and Garfunkel, Roxy Music, New Order and more.
After missing last weeks episode of the Round the Counter podcast because I was ill, this week we are back with a bang, or should that be a rant. This week Dave Weight, Ben Archer and Rob Watson spent most of our time talking about the dysfunction of British politics. We got so engrossed that we even forgot to play any music. We’ll rectify that next week.
This weeks podcast is a little different, Dave Weight and I aren’t in the office, but in my living room instead. We have a report from when we went to the Format Festival in Derby, the Big Gold Dream on the BBC iPlayer about Scottish Punk and New Wave. We’ve got music from Fire Engines, Scars and Blia Barguild with Teho Teardo.
