NO ENCORE #019 | Double Trouble

Good news! Your core NO ENCORE trio of Dave Hanratty, Colm O’Regan and Craig Fitzpatrick are back together as one solid, wildly charismatic and opinionated unit. On the agenda in a busy hour; movies, TV shows, comedians but mostly music-related happenings, exciting developments, new songs and a long-awaited debut album. Boom.

PLUS~! Your chance to win VIP tickets to this year’s Electric Picnic festival. Exciting.

ACT ONE: A pop culture round-up that takes in Suicide Squad (which isn’t good), Stranger Things (which is) and whether or not Dave broke his festival-related promise (you decide).

ACT TWO (9:15): The guys run the rule over the Mercury Music Prize nominations and whether anybody should care or not, mourn the official loss of The Streets (well, not everyone is upset) and ponder the state of the Canadian education system. Oh, and the glorious return of a segment that simply cannot happen without Craig.

ACT THREE (26:18): A handful of songs that made an impression in the past week or so. Enjoy new cuts and thoughts on efforts from Warpaint, NAO, Mac Miller and BANKS.

ACT FOUR (39:40): Out of the ashes of Adebisi Shank and The Cast of Cheers comes the eagerly-anticipated debut record from All Tvvins. Time for the NO ENCORE verdict on IIVV.

EXIT MUSIC: Swords – ‘Betty Machete’
