NO ENCORE #045 | Hobbies Include Partying

Your beloved NO ENCORE boys are back in the saddle, despite illness doing its utmost to drive them apart.


ACT ONE: Dave details his still-not-quite-over-it viral infection before the lads get stuck into some important news with everything from Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga’s upcoming Super Bowl appearance to’s terrible advice.

ACT TWO (17:40): It’s the Songs of the Week! There’s new turns from Goldfrapp, Young Fathers, Real Estate, Mount Eerie and some withering satire courtesy of one Father John Misty.

ACT THREE (39:35): After five years in the wilderness, the hard-rocking Japandroids are back but does Near To The Wild Heart Of Life belong in Colm’s ‘dodgy third albums’ list?

EXIT MUSIC: Tara Lee – ‘If I Burn (You Burn Too)’
