'Something with Meaning' w/ Manda Rin (bis)
We start today's show with a quick review of 'Spaceships Over Glasgow' by Stuart Braithwaite, 'Almost Home' by Mima Merrow and the 'This England' TV show. 2/3 of these helped me recover from a serious case of man-flu this week and helped ease me into sober october. This week's main event is a conversation from July 2022 with synth-pop punk icon Manda Rin of bis who were the first unsigned band to play Top of the Pops and are celebrating their latest album with a UK tour in October (dates below) . They made some epic hits including 'Kandypop' and 'Eurodisco' which saw them sell over 100,000 albums in their first week in Japan alone.
