If there was a definitive discography of classic albums, what should be in it? Host Mark Fraser from The Curator Podcast, and titans of Glasgow music/co-hosts David Weaver from Detour and Chris Cusack from Bloc, discuss and dissect perceived classic albums to decide which albums would make this list. Then, after we've talked it to death, we turn it over to you to decide once and for all via a handy poll. Cast your vote on our Facebook page and let's celebrate unsung classics.

We’re three bloody years old today. THREE. Can you believe it?!

As is tradition, we do something a bit silly around our birthday. In year one, Chris decided to take things very seriously do the album Meantime by Helmet, because the name of this podcast comes from one of the songs on that record.

In year two Mark subjected the world, and a room full of actual live human beings, to the ridiculous pop punk mixtape. Soon after, covid-19 was discovered. A coincidence? We think not. The world hasn’t been the same since.

This year it’s David’s turn, and he saw it was time to force St. Anger upon us, much like Metallica did when they released this album on the unsuspecting human populace. Much like the impact of covid-19, the world has never been the same since, and nor have Metallica themselves.

Look folks, it’s silly season. We’ve actually touched upon this band before in our ill-fated foray into the world of radio, so to say some of us were primed for this is an understatement. What you get across these two episodes are three men who hate Metallica talking about Metallica. Except Dave actually, genuinely likes this album.

May god have mercy on us all.
