Welcome back to Banned Biographies. Tom Austin-Morgan, your host, is back to let you know what’s been happening over the last month since the second part of the Adam Ant documentary went out which focussed on his solo career and what you can expect from the next episode.
There’s been some great feedback as well as sharing from the Ant fans this month including a new review on Apple Podcasts. Already the Adam Ant solo episode vaulted into the top 10 of all episodes so far, and the first part - the Adam and the Ants episode - is the fourth most downloaded episode, behind only the Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Clash which were released in April, July and October 2020! Incredible. Thank you.
Outside of Banned Biographies, the first two episodes of the Permanent Record podcast have been released so far, where I joined hosts by Brian and Sarah to talk about the iconic U2 album, The Joshua Tree. So far, 4 hours and 11 minutes have been spent discussing the polarising nature of U2, why we think that is and our own personal history with the band, or lack thereof. We’ve only got four tracks into discussing the album itself, so there’s still loads to go. Permanent Record podcast is a great resource for anyone remotely interested in the minutiae of bands and albums, especially if you’re into synth-based music. They made a bit of an exception for me by reviewing a guitar band, which I thank them for.
Brian and Sarah have made me feel really welcome, if not slightly under-researched! They put as much into looking at one album as I do in talking about the entire careers of bands. But what’s been brilliant is that we’re all learning. And I hope we manage to impart some information to you guys that you didn’t know about the band and the album that you didn’t know before. Make sure you go and subscribe to Permanent Record Podcast on whatever podcast platform you use and go and follow them on Twitter @PermRecordPod or find them on Facebook or at www.permanentrecordpodcast.com.
Please do reach out to Banned Biographies on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or by email as well as leaving those ratings and reviews on Apple Podcasts, but more than anything else take care and stay safe.
