Singles Going Steady

All good things must come to an end. After 18 months and a ton of fun, Rob and Clive have decided to shutter the Speakeasy. And what better way to finish than in the same way that we started: two blokes in a room, talking about music? We're talking about the art and joy of the single, using the examples that mean an awful lot to us. Expect revelations of a personal nature, and insights into who we are and how we got to be that way. Settle in. This one's gonna be emotional.

The Drokk-Easy

Stomm! Rob and Clive are joined by long-time friend of the Speakeasy Chris Rogers to talk about one of the most iconic British comic characters of all time: Judge Dredd. We pick apart one of his most iconic tales, The Day The Law Died, and see how that story is a distillation of everything that makes the man who IS The Law so great. Geekery and comics. It doesn't get much more Speakeasy than that! Warning: contains gratuitous prog-sniffing.

The Summer Movie Sum-up

EClive and Rob are joined again by film-makers Maria Thomas and Simon Aitken as we revisit our May Summer Movie preview. Did we see the films we said we'd watch? Did we like the films we said we'd watch? Did we watch films we didn't say we'd watch? Did we film the watch we said we'd film? From the game-changing Guardians Of The Galaxy to the tender, insightful Frank, we've got the whole gamut of the summer movie experience--summed up.

Along with adagio and strings from the mighty Keith Eyles, we highlight composers we think are unfairly overlooked, and pick out a soundtrack each that's a bit of a hidden gem. First movement and opening titles, everyone...
