If we were to title this episode we’d call it “Freddie does funk”
Cardinal Woods wants you to all stop fiddling with your EQs, Kev is adamant about the cheese and pickle sandwiches, and the boys are once again aligned in their appraisal of this track. A nod to Joe from in the Lap of the Pods – for his rocked up cover of this one. The boys also debated the merits of synth bass, Kev’s eagle ear (is that a thing?) picked up something Randy didn’t catch the first time through, but to counteract this moment of genius, he also let the song run too long a few times too so there are some breaks in the music here and there – do not adjust your sets!
Today’s episode covers Staying Power, the opening track from 1982’s Hot Space. It’s only a bloody record. People get so excited about these things.
