73 minutes of meandering banter, self-reflection, biological experiments, festive fuckery and great music, this time around from the likes of Babyshambles, Ryan Adams, Arctic Monkeys, Half-Man Half-Biscuit, Test Icicles and Bright Eyes.

The Mondo Podcast Episode Seven.mp3

Alternatively, here's the RSS thing.

If you don’t wanna know what’s hiding round the corner to blow your nuts open with musical wonder, then don’t scroll down, since the playlist is just underneath.

The Playlist

Adam Green – Bluebirds

This jaunty number is plucked from Green’s fantastic Friends Of Mine. Following a stint with anti-folk heroes The Mouldy Peaches, Green set off on his own for to carve witty, vulgar, catchy as hell pop songs featuring plenty talk of “cunts” and “suicide” and “Your daddy nailed me to the cross” etc.

Whiskeytown – Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart

One of my favourite bands of all time, is the crux of what The Duke makes of Whiskeytown. In case you didn’t know, the front-man for these alt. country mavericks was none other than David Ryan Adams, who soon ditched the “David” and went ahead with crafting a remarkable solo career. I hear he has a new album out on Monday, and let The Duke announce that I can’t fucking wait.

Willy Mason – Where The Humans Eat

The title track from Mason’s latest record, and a wonderful slab of low-key blues type shenanigans.

Ben Folds Five – Song For The Dumped

From the classic Whatever And Ever Amen, this is something of an anti break-up song. Rather than whine, moan, weep and so on, Ben and pals wanna yell about “Fuck you too!” and “Gimmie my money back, you bitch!”

Morrissey – This World Is Full Of Crashing Bores

I bounced back and forward and left and right with regards what Morrissey track I was gonna play, before finally settling for this wonderful number off of You Are The Quarry. A rousing affair concerning “uniformed whores” and “lock-jawed pop-stars thicker than pig shit”.

The Distillers – Love Is Paranoid

And finally, something suitably frantic from Brody and friends. This is from Coral Fang, i.e., the post Tim Armstrong break-up record. Thanks Brody. I had a dream about you one time.

Thanks folks.
Mondo Podcast Episode Six

Disclaimer - The Mondo Irlando Podcast contains more swearwords than one may find socially acceptable. A multitude of F's, plenty of Shit's, and even one or two C's get flung around the airwaves like nobody's business. If in doubt, do not listen, is what.

Disclaimer 2The Awakening - This particular instalment of The Mondo Radio Thing has been rated NC – 17 for Strong Sexual Content. You have been warned.

What the “podcast” phenomena concerns itself with is the amateur radio that kicks the clambering sterile arsehole of the commercial equivalent. You don’t need an iPod to listen, just right-click and save the MP3, or left-click to listen online.

Although if you wanna you can grab the RSS thing.

The Mondo Podcast Episode Six.mp3

If you wanna be surprised and stunned, don’t scroll down, on account of what lies below is no more than a playlist, i.e., the songs what get blared herein;

The Buzzcocks – What Do I Get?

A perfect slab of punk-pop from everyone’s favourite love-lorn Mancs. The Smiths don’t count for such a label, since you can only be love-lorn if you WANT love, as in physical touching and leaking. Morrissey just wanted to yack about Wilde and maybe sniff some gladioli’s.

The Nips – All The Time In The World

Before Lord Shane MacGowan was fronting The Pogues, he was fronting these buncha London rapscallions. Brilliant, frantic punk delirium.

Elliot Smith – Memory Lane

A beautiful Beatles-esque number, all fingerpicking and double-tracked vocals. Far too pretty for a grot-fest like this, to be perfectly honest.

Jesse Malin – Riding On The Subway

One of the stand-outs from Jesse’s marvellous debut solo record, The Fine Art Of Self Destruction, co-produced by the ever magnificent Ryan Adams.

Green Day – Who Wrote Holden Caulfield

One of those occasions when The Duke finds himself listening to something he hasn’t listened to in years, and then next thing anyone knows it’s bounding out The Mondo Podcast. This is from their second record, the criminally under-rated Kerplunk!

Fountains Of Wayne – Bright Future In Sales

Sometimes MTV get it right, man. Chances are you heard Hey Julie and Stacy’s Mom blaring out the telly enough to sicken your guts tartan. This here is from the same album, Welcome Interstate Managers, and is further proof that the damn thing plays like a greatest hits set.

If you missed out past episodes, Get Them Here

Remember – This Episode Has Been Designated Adults Only

Thanks folks
Mondo Podcast Episode Five

You don’t need no iPod for to hear it, just right click on the mp3 to save someplace nice, or left-click for to listen across the oceans of the web-net.

The Mondo Irlando Podcast Episode Five.mp3

Alternatively, here's the RSS Thing.

An epic tale of heartbreak, misery, time-travel and Kirsten Dunst.

Barring an Extra Special Bonus Selection, this here is what constitutes the PLAYLIST;

Rancid – Cash, Culture And Violence

Blinding bout of hollering and spitting from the masterful Life Won’t Wait. Also has the fella from The Mighty Mighty Bosstones offering a yell or two.

Bright Eyes – When The President Talks To God

This was a free iTunes download, but only if you lived in the US. Us United UK rapscallions had to make do with sifting through illegally obtained live-versions or, indeed, picking up the First Day Of My Life single, since this popped up on the B-Side.

I did both, incidentally.

The Futureheads – Le Garage

Barbershop, funk, punk and electronica combine in this glorious bout of Scots-accents and American pronunciation.

Johnny Cash – Delia’s Gone

Stark as hell murder ballad from American Recordings that manages to be incredibly uplifting, nonetheless.

Manic Street Preachers – Faster

Perhaps the single greatest moment in The Manic Street Preachers career. If not, then the parent album, The Holy Bible, surely meets the requirements for such a post.

Kaiser Chiefs – Na Na Na Na Naa

Hear them before they’re too big to be cool anymore!
Mondo Podcast Episode Four

Disclaimer - The Mondo Irlando Podcast contains more swearwords than one may find socially acceptable. A multitude of F's, plenty of Shit's, and even one or two C's get flung around the airwaves like nobody's business. If in doubt, do not listen, is what.

The Mondo Podcast Thing Episode Four.mp3

Mondo Irlando and Blogcritics offer up the greasy, fattening roast of The Mondo Podcast Episode Four upon the digital platter of cyberspace.

Fantastic music, fantastic banter, shell-shock-inducing swearing.

Also, as an extra bonus treat, this week’s MP3 is, in fact, fully functioning. In other words, it won’t say 12.56 or whatever for the duration of the damn show.

And, by popular demand, right here is the music-related playlist;

The Pogues – Bottle Of Smoke

Plucked from off of If I Should Fall From Grace With God, this is among the most frantic slabs of bollock-stripping punk folk these unspeakably brilliant sons a bitches ever crafted. It’s all about a horse race, don’t you know. Dig that galloping vibe, would you ever?

The Clash – Police On My Back

By way of Public Service, The Duke illustrates that, in actual fact, Sandinista is nowhere near as bad as you’ve been led to believe. This right here is proof.

Todd Snider – Good News Blues

His baby done him bad. And he don’t give a flying gypsies fuck, I’d wager. This is from his masterful East Nashville Skyline.

Bright Eyes – Arc Of Time

One of the stand-out moments in the brilliant Digital Ash In A Digital Urn. It’s high time this record was getting the attention that the similarly wonderful I’m Wide It’s Morning has been enjoying.

The Libertines – What Became Of The Likely Lads?

Heartbreaking account of a friendship, and an incredible songwriting partnership, burning itself to the ground. “See if it’s up to you, I know exactly what you’ll do with all the dreams we had.”

Jello Biafra And Mojo Nixon – Will The Foetus Be Aborted

From Prairie Home Invasion, Jello and friends rework Will The Circle Be Unbroken for to be all about the abortion and the pro-choice and the what not.
