    A shorter podcast than recently at just over an hour, which is not such a bad thing. I hope you like what Nick had to say.

    Just listened to the excellent Pod 29 - great interview with Nick. I think he was right to plonk 'Pop Fiction' in the middle of the CD - I really love it - but its down to personal taste; as these things always are... :biggrin:

    Cheers for these quality podcasts Paul. xx

    P.S. Was the chicken jalfrezi up to scratch?

    What Sue said! Came out of Pop Fiction the first time* confused by it, and now it's really grown on me... that clever clogs got me again haha.

    Fantastic podcast Paul, I salute you sir. And I love Nick's cranky old man schtick, that never gets old :D

    * yes I have the album now, may use the train trip to post something about that, I've been too busy just enjoying it the past few days :biggrin:

    Apparently there wasn't enough fresh coriander, and he forgot to ask the waiter for the lime pickle when the meals came, but apart from that it was generally well received :)

    Where can I get a copy of Eddy Grant's Altruistic Avenue? :biggrin:

    Dunno about "Altruistic Avenue" but I've got "Electric Avenue" :). Personally, I'm already skipping Pop Fiction, much as I liked it first time. Passing Chord is my current favourite track.

    I'm a bit late listening to this one. Nice. I think the 'anything goes' format worked well actually, especially as Nick was a little 'lubricated'.

    As for that self-indulgent ending, I don't mind hearing people's indian food preferences (I like a bit of lime pickle with my main too...), but commuting routes? ... come on... zzzzzzzzz.

    Oh, and here's that song Nick mentioned too before he got a bit bitter about Hallelujah cover versions...

    Point taken, though it might be a little unfair to the sizeable population of transport enthusiasts who are also into Nick Harper... :D

    Heh heh. I'm in bed with laryngitis - swallowing is really painful - so I've got the laptop on my knee and I'm catching up on internet stuff. I was only joking Paul, I really enjoyed (most of!) it - always nice to hear a Harper ramble, and you did well to keep it on a reasonably straight road.

    (btw, how do you actually insert youtube videos into posts here?)

    I'm listening to that Dave Graney song on repeat here - it's excellent. Reminds me of solo Stanshall.

    Oh and WHEN are you going to invest some time listening to Mr Hitchcock? Tsk.

    HAHA yes I felt enriched by that knowledge, and I don't even spot trains much unless I'm on 'em or really bored at Clyde's ground (next to the Glas/Edin mainline) :D

    I have actually been listening to some Hitchcock on spotify and also some recordings of the charity gigs he's done doing bizarre Floyd covers etc...

    Youtube embedding is easy (I've edited your post to do this)... you just do
    where code is the ID of the movie (after the v= bit in the URL)

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Ahhhh!..... Thanks to a Terabyte sized birthday present (ext. HD) I am now up to date with the podcasts once again :D

    The interview with Nick fleshed out 'The Last Guitar' a little for me, hearing his persepctive on some of the songs etc... but I must confess I still struggle with it when I play it, which is rarely.

    'Pop Fiction' made a little more sense after Nick mentioned Dave Graney. I first stumbled over him in Australia in 1994 and it was that song 'Rock and Roll is Where I Hide' that *****ed my ears, it got a lot of airplay at the time, especially on Triple J (i.e nationwide); it's always been a favourite of mine.

    Thanks Paul, I'm looking forward to episode 30 :D
