This is one podcast I’m happy to see NO WOMEN included in. 😉

LOL, only FiL could do a story about a moustache involving a tuft of hair and a Brazilian, AND work in Motorhead! Long live FiL!!

Oh wait, I’m wrong. I forgot about Le Tigre!!!

Loath though I am to interrupt Nat’s conversation with herself can I just jump in here again with a newly tweaked url for my nice restored old blog – http://www.plilas9.blogspot.com. I’m so pleased that somebody played Vienna, it makes me feel better about considering it!

There’s a tube strike in London and this podcast made for good listening whilst being stuck on a stinky bus for 1 hr 30mins…aagghhhh. Great show !!

Sorry Crash, i was gonna submitt billy childish, but then changed my mind as i thought someone else would do it.

Loved that Captin beefheart track !!!

Groucho AND Lemmy. This podcast was amazing. I also really like that ECC track. And Vienna. And…it was all so good!

Ross, is fine, that’s a better Groucho song than the one I had. His moustache was also painted on, incidentally, at least it was for the films, it looked better than a real one or a hairy fake.

quite the diverse ‘cast.

linda, you made me laugh. i know exactly what you were going through. i even went back and forth over whether a beard and moustache fit the criteria or if it had to be just a ‘stache . . . i’m insane, i know. but i would never check up on you–although i think i will have to check out le tigre’s moustachioed member. not because i doubt sid, i just have to see this for myself!

glad everybody likes the ecc–they are a lot of fun!

I always thought that that was a man in le tigre! i’m a horrible person, i suppose.

And mjrc, i went through the beard/stache dilemma as well!

I really dug the Hazlewood and Zappa.
Was a bit worried about the reaction to Vienna TBH, but glad it made the grade. Thanks everyone.

that HAS to be a man in le tigre–it HAS to be!!!! maybe it’s a shim, but there’s got to be some maleness going on there. :0

I checked on wikipedia the other day and it’s definitely a woman! Will wonders never cease?!

Help! The link to this podcast is now broken – can you restore? Thanks.

Unfortunately I’m only able to keep the most recent 8 or 9 episodes up at the moment. I was storing them on archive.org, but some f***er said that they had ‘unsuitable content’. Once I get an alternative archive sorted I’ll publish it.
