About Us

If there was a definitive discography of classic albums, what should be in it? Host Mark Fraser from The Curator Podcast, and titans of Glasgow music/co-hosts David Weaver from Detour and Chris Cusack from Bloc, discuss and dissect perceived classic albums to decide which albums would make this list. Then, after we've talked it to death, we turn it over to you to decide once and for all via a handy poll. Cast your vote on our Facebook page and let's celebrate unsung classics.

Episode 91 - Caution by Hot Water Music

EIn 1993 four men formed a band in Gainesville, Florida and decided to literally sing themselves hoarse every night. The result?

Episode 90 - Shaking the Habitual by The Knife

EThe Knife were a band whose message was always completely synchronized with their music. Whether their politics was catchy, like in their earlier, more electro-pop stuff, or in this, their final, hugely experimental artistic statement.

Episode 87 - Cold House by Hood

EYorkshire is a dark place, and Hood do nothing to dispel that myth with their skittish combination of post-rock, trip hop, electronica and indie.

Episode 86 - Mothership Connection by Parliament

EThis week we delve into the crazy funk of Parliament’s, frankly insane, mythology. An acid soaked, psychedelic sci-fi odyssey that takes place over 10 bonkers records. Mothership Connect is the magnum opus, so is it worth inclusion in our discography?
