Never Meet Your IdolsSep 22, 2020
EP 05: Your idol, Nick Valensi of The Strokes
Laura and Carré reminisce about childhood TV shows and Nick Valensi talks about getting snubbed by one (or two) of his idols, his man crushes, and the passing of Silvia —his pet chicken. Oh, and his bands: The Strokes and CRX. No big deal.
EP 04: Your idol, Lee Kiernan of Idles
What do Carré, Shirley Manson, Macaulay Culkin and Mother Teresa have in common? How come we're just now hearing about Evan Rachel Wood's domestic abuse testimony? Is Brian May too busy to be friendly? Is Dave Grohl Lee's dad? Listen to this episode with Idles' guitarist, Lee Kiernan, for answers.
EP 03: Your idol, Roger O'Donnell of The Cure
In this episode we talk to The Cure's Roger O'Donnell about his idol and his thoughts on Covid, Hitchcock, the music industry, Brexit, the joys of cutting grass ("not the hippy kind, you moron!") and much more. He even answers a few fan questions --after a stiff Aperol Spritz.
EP 02 : Your idol, Kate Nash
This episode features a story about Jared Leto and how one shouldn't look him in the eye (we suspect he's sensitive or something...), and an in depth interview with popstar-turned-actress Kate Nash, who answers listeners' questions, tells us about meeting her idols and her ideas for how to change the music business --plus, the dangers tech giants pose to our brains and what Kate does with her dirty shower water.
