This episode features the second of several interviews I recorded on my recent trip to the Old Country. It’s like a second go at the Home Counties tour of 2013.
Nick Jones is an artist, Liverpudlian, and member of several disreputable online communities (which is how I met him). I joined him in a pub off Oxford Street in fashionable London (just round the corner from the Primark), and we talked art, attribution, music, “guilty” pleasures, the wheel of history
Technical Note/Excuse: because this was recorded in a pub, there is a certain amount of background hustle and bustle. It adds to the atmosphere.

I’ve recently started writing reviews for the music blog Both Bars On, so on this trip I took the opportunity to travel to Manchester and attend the first Extraordinary General Meeting of the entire editorial staff. That is to say, I sat in the back yard of a pub in Manchester’s fashionable Northern Quarter (an area I missed completely when I attended Manchester Poly, 25 years and a lifetime ago), with the founders, James Kneale and Bon Holloway, and the new writers, Pete Collins and me. We talk music, what is it, where is it, why is it, does it have to be and what can we do about it.
Technical note – there was some ambient noise in the location, which I’ve filtered out as best I can. There may be some strange audio artefacts a result of that. Then again ambient noise and strange audio artefacts are kind of the blogs whole scene. Anyway, hop you enjoy it. I certainly did after the third pint.

This is just a test of my quick podcast creation script. It was originally blocked by Mixcloud for being too short (they thought it was just one music track), but I explained and they reinstated it.
