This episode, Steve and Doug tackle the big electronica duo from London, Chase & Status. They jib jab a bit on how techno became dubstep, the almighty ampersand, and music you can (can't?) dance to.
Music featured this week:
End Credits - No More Idols
Count On Me - Brand New Machine
Pieces - More Than Alot
1:21 - Looks like they're trying to fix up their website, but the links still work so please check out Doug's guest appearance on the Sci Fi Movie Podcast episode on "Men In Black"
6:55 - What interview with Cope? This interview with Cope!
25:29 - Take a look at the music video for "Pieces" and let us know what you think! Cheap, or artistically interesting?
25:53 - Steve misspoke here; "Hurt You" doesn't have a music video, but instead what's posted online is the visuals that would play in the background during the tour. Still a great idea!
33:00 - Here's a weird one folks, but one we can chalk up to a buggy website (seriously, I see broken code). NME gives a blistering and dour review of No More Idols, but yet the rating is 5 stars. Strange!
34:15 - Steve has a soft spot for "Turn Down For What"; Doug does not
42:54 - Chase & Status released an EP called "London Bars" later in 2015, then "Tribe" in 2017, and then "RTRN II JUNGLE" in 2019
47:54 - Here's the interview Chase & Status did with Tim Westwood. Pretty funny!
49:40 - Here's a playlist for the Roni Size Reprazent's album "In The Mode"
50:30 - And check out Luke Vibert's (fairly incomplete!) Bandcamp page
57:15 - This is a true story
Blind Faith - No More Idols
Can't Get Enough - More Than Alot
Lost & Not Found - Brand New Machine
Music Club - More Than Alot
What Is Right - Brand New Machine
