I am the EggPod

Postby chrischrischris » 03 Sep 2021, 18:39

Hello!

For some reason I had it in my head that this beautiful forum had ended years ago. I love BCB and am about to spend my Friday evening (such is my life) trawling through all these posts.

Apologies if this is the wrong section to post it in but I know they’re lots of Beatle fans on here. I’ve been doing a podcast discussing their albums and hopefully there’s some stuff in there you might like.

Thanks again BCBers - so good to be back.

I'm a pretty regular listener, ccc. It's one of my favorite things and I do what little I can to promote it from time to time. Welcome back.

Another regular listener, congratulations on a very enjoyable podcast - and welcome back. There had been some speculation as to whether you were behind the Eggpod, good to know it was a truth.

Loved your pepper and revolver mash ups and as I said before I gave the latter to paul weller - thought the taxman connection might interest him - which it did. Now I enjoy your podcast a lot. Like the bowie album to album one and the rockonteurs the ones one gets the most out of are those with people who are not just somehow fans themselves but have previously written or broadcasted on the subject.

The last two Eggpods have been great.

I really enjoyed Diana Erickson's take on Wild Life, so it was interesting to hear her (and Chris's) thoughts about Walls and Bridges. She goes deep into the context and her views about the emotional life of the Beatles are always interesting, as it isn't anything I've thought about at length before. I've always listened to Walls and Bridges (one of my favorites) sort of on its own terms, without thinking far beyond what's in the grooves. I'm particularly fascinated by the "#9 Dream" as the converse/repudiation/answer to "God."

Somehow, when I initially looked her up, I was sent to the "Another Kind of Mind" podcast, which is interesting (and necessary on some level) but I got put off by their forensic deconstruction of interviews and lyrics to come to definitive conclusions about things. Their take was too neatly syllogistic and conclusive. But I'm definitely going to dig into "One Sweet Dream."

Also, Youth was very interesting in his discussion of the Firemen records (which I've never paid close attention to, but will). He is interesting as he's spent a fair amount of time with Macca in the studio, but while he's obviously very sympathetic to him, he isn't a fanboy sycophant, either and had some interesting insights that may not have come from someone else. Big win for the Eggpod!

Looks interesting. Tuning in now. Cheers and welcome back. :)

For instance, from the fact that George's contributed guitar to "How Do You Sleep," we can conclude he endorses this act of cruelty against Paul in toto, and therefore bears almost equal culpability. That could be true, and maybe it is. But it could also be that John asked him to play some guitar and he did. And it's all kind of like that.
