NO ENCORE #267 | TOP 5 TALKING BITS IN SONGS / DRY CLEANING REVIEW
Last time Zara Hedderman teamed up with Craig for an episode of NO ENCORE, Garth Brooks: The Road became essential viewing. After this ep, we trust you’ll be rushing to rent Valley Girl starring a young Nicholas Cage. And hopefully get a solid steer on the much-hyped Dry Cleaning album, plus some of the best talk-y bits in musical history to boot. Dave’s away, let’s play….
ACT ONE: Craig and Zara confront Mother Nature’s harsh realities. It’s dog eat dog out there. Or spider eat wasp. Ant eat poison. In any event, a grizzly preamble…
ACT TWO (7:01): The news gets Jepic as we discuss John and Edward’s Twitter takedown of the X Factor machine. Elsewhere, we’re baffled by an AI Nirvana song and Alice Cooper gets high with Hendrix. And yes, a little NFT bit. But also: Ja Rule!
ACT THREE (34:18): We join the Dry Cleaning knitting circle, dissecting the London quartet’s debut album like a couple of emo dead stuff collectors.
ACT FOUR (50:12): Keeping things spoken word in our final segment, spotlighting our favourite bits of talking in songs, from full spoken word to samples and melodramatic breakdowns. Quite the rollercoaster.
Until next week, you can find us, as ever, on patreon.com/noencore.
