NO ENCORE #028 | Everyone’s a Winner, Baby

That’s the truth. It’s a feisty episode this week as Craig reveals all about his feud with the drummer from The Blizzards, while Colm opens up about recent rucks with Jedward and Bastille. Elsewhere, Dave is relatively docile for once while living, breathing joke book Zara Hedderman makes her grand return to the studio.

On the agenda; social media blackouts, dead celebrities, marriage officiations, mansion disputes and the wistful puzzle box that is the third record from Bon Iver.

ACT ONE: Feud recaps, Father John Misty is up to something, Lil Wayne is progressive, Robbie Williams isn’t on the same Page as a legendary rock guitarist and The Weeknd is up for an award in vaguely controversial circumstances. Plus, Dave gets some shocking news.

ACT TWO (22:20): The always reliable, ever-intriguing Songs of the Week section brings together Metallica, Pete(r) Doherty, Emeli Sandé, Chromatics and Colm’s favourite band of all time; The Dillinger Escape Plan.

ACT THREE (38:30): Justin Vernon is back and he’s more abstract than ever before. 22, A Million is the new Bon Iver record and the critics are raving. What’s the NO ENCORE verdict?
