NO ENCORE returns with further social distant music podcasting as Dave Hanratty and Craig Fitzpatrick deliver their top five late-career highlights in what turns out to be a very good list if we do say so ourselves.
There’s also space for the new Pearl Jam album, a news section that finally includes some non-coronavirus updates and word of the NO ENCORE Patreon, which you can access at patreon.com/noencore if you’re so inclined. Thank you for your support.
ACT ONE: A preamble packed with personal proclamations and Patreon pronouncements.
ACT TWO: This week’s news brings a sad passing from the music world, a repaired friendship, and contrasting styles in the celebrity fatherhood stakes.
ACT THREE: Seattle grunge icons Pearl Jam return with Gigaton, their 11th studio album. Dave used to worship these lads. How do he and Craig feel about them in 2020?
ACT FOUR: Another duelling Top 5 battle sees the boys tackle late-career gems. This was a tough one.
