No Sleep Til Holloway

Last month, I did a short UK Book Tour. Some of you may have caught it. On the tour, I brought along my friend Ian Winwood – music journalist and author – to ask me questions on stage and oversee the Q&A section. Our public chats were so much fun – an extension of our private natterings, basically – that we decided to try our hand at doing a podcast – No Sleep Til Holloway. Neither of us have ever recorded a podcast before, so the jury is still very much out as to whether or not we are any good at this. But anyway. Here it is, episode 1!

  1. Enjoyed the chat. Two things I will take away from it. 1. Never heard of Mewithoutyou, listening to album now, great lyrics. 2. The idea of outcome being more important than intention. Makes sense, but I still cling to the the idea of intention being more important, assuming the person with the intention is not a total idiot.

    Just one thing, can you fiddle the levels next time so voices and music are similar volumes.  Look forward to next time.

  2. This was nice – please keep doing it!

    It was surprisingly relaxing, and I’ve been puzzling on that all evening. I think it just does my heart good to hear intelligent people talking politely about things, and staying true to form – no agenda, no sales pitch, no ratings to keep up – just things, a few laughs, and a few songs. All good.

    I do like the stories, regardless of the subject matter. Frank is a great storyteller, as is Ian, apparently. (Ian, I was probably at that PiL show in DC, but this was the first time I heard that one. I have, however, seen Ian MacKaye arrive at a venue in his old Honda, quite recently actually – another one staying true to form.)

    Please do try to improve the audio quality, though. Between my rock-and-roll-damaged ears and the accents, I missed a few things that I couldn’t even catch on replay.

    Looking forward to more – and reading up on Polish history!

  3. Really enjoyed this. Did feel like I was sitting in the pub listening to friends chatting so I think that means you met your brief! Can’t wait for the next one.
