In this show, the wizards get to grips with a whole bunch of new records, discuss the legacy of surf guitar and discover Argentina’s latest musical sensation. Rebel Rikkit’s World of Ska finally gets round to visiting Poland and inspires a quiz that features both Chutney and Spouge. Oh. yes! Meanwhile, Chorizo Garbanzo not only offers the listener a prize, but nearly buys Kicker of Elves a present.

  2. Another great pod. Completely disagree about the new Dylan album, though. Got it on now and it’s fabulous. But then I also love all his recent albums (perhaps not as much as this one; and the Christmas one is ace!)

    • You clearly have a stronger constitution than me, Will. The Dylan album is not, perhaps, as bad as I made out, but I can’t see me listening to it again anytime soon. Time Out Of Mind is excellent though, might just have to go and put it on now…
