Chris Constantinou Interview Roundup, Punk Rock News and Fontaines D.C. Skinty Fia Album Review

May 25th, 2022

Your host, Tom Austin-Morgan, is back to let you know what’s been going on since the Chris Constantinou Interview episode went out and what you can expect from the next one.

Firstly, a big thanks to Chris for the time he took to talk to me last month, it’s been wonderful to make his acquaintance and to get to know him. Special thanks must again go out to Rhiannon Ifans who arranged the meeting in the first place, I’m looking forward to what else she’s go up her sleeve!

This month I appeared on another music-based podcast: Love That Album, which I’m a big fan of. Myself and the host, Maurice discussed the Tom Robinson Band’s debut album Power In The Darkness as well as a lot of the political, societal and musical landscapes of the UK in the 1970s. I had an absolute blast finally meeting Maurice and getting onto his podcast, I hope you either heard it and enjoyed it or will seek it out to listen to, I think that episode makes a great companion piece to this podcast and, if you make the effort to listen to it and you do enjoy it, I hope you subscribe to Love That Album, Maurice is a great host and a fountain of knowledge. His most recent episode came out this week and is an interview with the bassist from the band The Knack, which was a real eye-opener about a band a lot of people dismiss as a one hit wonder. Make sure you listen to that one too!

The news this month features bands like Buzzcocks, Black Flag, John Doe, The Linda Lindas, My Chemical Romance, Adolescents, Dream Nails and The Beastie Boys as well as the nominations announced by the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

I also review Dublin-born, now London-based post-punk band Fontaines D.C.'s third album Skinty Fia.

Be sure to get in touch on social media or email and do go to Apple Music to leave a rating and review, it really does help and you get the review read out on the show! Until next time, take care and stay safe.
