Toadcast #274 – The Palecast

tag

As the run of dates gets into full swing, I figured The Palecast was a tediously inevitable name for a podcast but for all the predictability, I honestly couldn’t come up with anything else, sorry. Although I hope I’m not being too annoying about it (and I’m beginning to suspect that I am), I do take the opportunity to plug this week’s Pale Imitation Festival gigs, but there’s other stuff too.

There is the by-now-mandatory song from the car, picked from whatever tape I happen to be listening to a little too much at the moment. In this case it’s Texarkana from REM’s far-from-classic early nineties album Out of Time. It may not be a classic, but there are some really good tunes on there, mostly on the second side, and it’s been fun to hear them again for the first time in ages.

Then we have a couple of new unsigned bands for you, and someone else’s selections from my vinyl collection. Job’s a good ‘un.

4 witty ripostes to Toadcast #274 – The Palecast

    Very strange. I had watched Phantom Menace the same day you posted this.

    Ooh dear. How’s your brain feeling after that?

    I have a soft spot for Out of Time because it was the first REM album I properly listened to – when I ran away from home and stayed with my dad while studying for my standard grades. And “Losing My Religion” was mine and my brother’s impressively-harmonised karaoke song (I’ll just leave that image with you).

    “Shiny Happy People” is execrable though, even the fucking band have disowned that song.

    Radio Song, and in particular the rap, is pretty painful. Especially in hindsight.
