Retrosonic Podcast review on Pushblog...

We were very happy to notice the review of our first Retrosonic Podcast Episode from journalist and Author, Push, on his excellent Pushblog. The feature "Pod Gave Rock 'n' Roll To You", is very encouraging so we would like to thank Push for the kind words. Also mentioned in the feature is the influential Podrophenia, who have now expanded from Blog and Podcast to an eclectic live Radio show on Chance Radio. The show airs every Tuesday evening from 9pm. and has an interactive message board where you can pass comment during the show itself. Podrophenia has just celebrated its' 50th Episode, so we have a lot to aspire to with Retrosonic! Coincidentally, Mondo and Piley from Podrophenia will be DJ'ing at The Len Price 3 gig at The Railway Hotel in Southend-On-Sea on March 17th. More details on this to follow soon.

Please check out Pushblog too, as it features, not only a wide selection of interesting and often very funny musings, but also an Archive of Push's reviews and interviews from his time as a music journalist with Melody Maker and Mondo amongst others. Push has also co-written "The Book of E, All About Ecstacy" with Mireille Silcoff and most famously his collaboration with The Damned and (now...) The Members' Drummer, Rat Scabies on "Rat Scabies and The Holy Grail" under his real name Christopher Dawes. The Holy Grail book is a great read, part buddy-story, part road-movie travelogue and part, for the Holy Grail...! It has been described as "The Da Vinci Code gets the Punk Rock treatment" and the cover carries great the tag-line "Can a Punk Rock legend find what Monty Python couldn't?!" There were rumours circulating that a film of the book was in production, which would be excellent, so I'll try to find out more.

Don't forget  to check out our Retrosonic Podcast, the first Episode features a selection of groovy tunes from The Chambers Brothers, The Rezillos, The Playn Jayn, The Carpettes and The Saints amongst others. There is a "bonus track" interview with Rock Photographer Paul Slattery too.


  1. Good stuff mate!!!! Look forward to the next one.

  2. Ta very much...! Already plotting up a new episode now...
