NDR | A soundtrack of obscure Beatles covers

NDR | A soundtrack of obscure Beatles covers

The Beatles are the most covered musical act of all time, so we thought it was worthwhile delving into some of the more obscure selections out there.

NDR | Unofficial soundtrack to Glory

NDR | Unofficial soundtrack to Glory

Glory is one of those comic characters who’ve been completely reinvented by new writers over the years. From over the top sexualised siren to – in the run I’m soundtracking – a ticking time bomb of an anti hero. Writer Joe Keatinge and Ross Campbell on the art for the final 12 books in the …

NDR | Welcome to my Spotify brain

Welcome to my brain. I went full-on nerd this week and had a spotify de-clutter session, filtering my tunes into category folders. I know, it’s sad, but it’s a big deal to a music geek and a spotify power user, which is how i like to think of my skillz. This weeks show is a …

NDR | Unofficial Soundtrack to Paper Girls

NDR | Unofficial Soundtrack to Paper Girls

Surely one of the coolest looking comics of recent year, Brian K Vaughan’s paper Girls is a time-travallin’, mutant-millin’, paper-deliverin’ romp through 80’s American suburbs. Out soundtrack is a blow by blow walk through the story of the first volume of stories, where we see our paper girl hero gang encountering people from another time/place, …

NDR | Prequel to NonDef Fest

NDR | Prequel to NonDef Fest

We have the studio to ourselves for the day, it’s summer and none of us have actually been to a festival, so we we thought we’d have our own half-baked version. The plan is twelve 30min alternative soundtracks with a vague London theme, provided by friends, freaks & geeks unfortunate enough to be in proximity …

Last year, 23 volunteers went to live in the Scottish Highlands as part of Channel 4’s documentary experiment, but it went wrong, so wrong.

NDR | Alternative soundtrack to The Humans

NDR | Alternative soundtrack to The Humans

A sort of Easy Rider/ Son’s of Anarchy combo set in 70’s California, where monkeys rule the planet and mankind are their slaves/playthings. Our soundtrack of the first volume of comics by Tom Neely and Kennan Marshall Keller deserves the tag ‘unofficial’ because they actually did their own and we’re that keen on me doing …
