In this Episode Lol and Budgie go Deeper than Deep with Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke and The Traveling Circus of Sublimated Ego.
Concentric Circles of Life and the Nightmare of Brexit
Kele from London via Edinburgh and Liverpool
Budgie in France, London and Berlin
Lol in the USA for 25 years
Old UK market towns when the pubs are closed
Would anyone want a return to 70’s England?
Out of Brussels - Nefarious reasons?
Strawberries full of chemicals?
Capitalism - Free labour?
Big Agri eats labour
Children pick berries - Human nature stagnates
Automation stealing jobs - packing our bags
Armed response in Beverly Hills
Belfast’s most bombed hotel - we’re all in the Bar
Berlin still an island with lots of space
Kele, Lol and Budgie went to Catholic school
Altar boys all, singing magi and Latin
Teenagers rebelling against Catholic guilt
40 years later we have hopefully matured
Not normal to sublimate the ego in your 20’s
That’s what it takes for a band to work
A Catch 22 – Few bands remain as first formed
If only The Cure had taken a break from the 4th album …
A recipe for disaster - everyone loves a rock star,
staring into the abyss.
Respect: Joseph Heller (May 1st 1923 – December 12 1999)
