As Kylie drags us back onto the dancefloor, esteemed music journalist Zara Hedderman completes her hat trick of 2020 NO ENCORE co-hosts. She joins Craig (finally!) for a Top 5 that works as both informative listening guide and emotional rollercoaster through hilariously bad career moves: it’s the Best And Worst Musical Reinventions.

That means Dave misses out on…

ACT ONE [7:17]

Trent Reznor learning how to stop worrying and love the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame! Nine Inch Nails were just one of the names inducted last week and, even though the event was a virtual one, there was a lot to unpack. We also reignite the great VMAs/EMAs debate and Zara goes in two-footed on Win Butler and his Arcade Fire mates. Lovely stuff.

ACT TWO [34:45]

Kylie Minogue joins the housebound disco movement, with her Disco LP. What will we make of her return to a genre that made her name? And will Craig be able to dig out his infamous white disco boots again, as per Zara’s request?

ACT THREE [56:23]

In honour of the chameleon that is Kylie, we look at the stunning reinventions that changed careers and music itself (Zara)… as well as the truly bizarre genre switch-ups and alter-egos that threatened to sink beloved artists (Craig). It’s the Top 5 Musical Reinventions – Best and Worst!
