For the first time since the end of May we catch up via Zoom in an hour of chat that takes all manners of twists and turns. There’s nonsense, career updates, a major life update and some minor reflections on life 6 months on from lockdown. Danny then gets angry and ranty over people enjoying their lives as dead animals are linked to romantic gestures.
Music is fucking great eh? It's episode 67 and we're joined by twins, and two thirds of Cloth - Rachel and Paul, for an excellent chat about all manners of stuff. James hypochondria and shoulder of death are back and Lord of the Rings is analysed in depth before Danny gives us our biggest car crash moment yet. We recover it well and get into the forming of the group, musical influences, the music scene post-pandemic, working together as twins and our collective hatred of Jamie.
Huge thanks to the guys for tolerating us. Grab a copy of their excellent debut album and find out more about the label Last Night From Glasgow here https://www.lastnightfromglasgow.com/
It's a hip-hop collaboration for the ages as Jamie and Kerr from The LaFontaines join us for a hilarious episode. We talk about the formation of the band, entering Eurovision, laughing at England’s sporting failures, smoking crack, dealing with stalkers, pissing off Mike Shinoda and much, much more
At the time of recording this the lads were due to play a drive in gig which has since been cancelled so don’t buy tickets for that. We’ve just kept the chat in because it’s funny (we couldn’t be fucked editing it).
Be sure to check out all The LaFontaines tunes and listen to their podcast for more hilarious stories.
Author of best selling novel The Young Team, Graeme Armstrong joins us for this episode and a real rollercoaster of a chat. Danny continues to show why he should not be left to introduce guests as chat on Airdrie kicks us off. From there we discuss the nostalgia of hanging around the streets in different areas of Glasgow, addiction, support, the dangers of drugs and DJ Rankin.
Huge thanks to Graeme for giving us the time. Find and purchase his book from all good book selling establishments and treat yourself
We're joined by one of the first superstar DJ's and trailblazers of the acid house movement, Graeme Park in this episode for a great chat covering a million and one topics. Firstly, he really looks like Cheyne but more importantly he has a 30 year career playing all over the world to discuss. We hear about how he became a resident at the Hacienda in the peak of it's movement and his encounters with Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson. We also chat sobriety, being on tour with New Order, John Lydon and Bjork at the same time, Ibiza and the Hacienda Classical tours he has been part of the last few years.
Graeme was recently mentioned in parliament as a voice of the #forgottenltd campaign and we ask you to lend your support at the following link https://forgottenltd.com/
Know how our teenage regrets are failing Highers or sending that humiliating steaming text? We’re joined by Elliot Castro in this episode whose flirtation with credit card fraud led to a few years of globetrotting, prison sentences, Rolex purchases and more all before he left his teens. Now reformed and working on a career in music, Elliot recounts some of his fascinating stories that have been regaled in the book ‘Other People's Money: The Rise and Fall of Britain's Boldest Credit Card Fraudster’, written by creator of TV series ‘Guilt’, Neil Forsyth.
Much like the book this chat is fascinating, funny, emotional and thought provoking. Check out the book as well as Elliot’s tunes/live mixes/streams.
Absolutely fucking delighted to have the incredible Frank Turner join us for a very candid, and somewhat typically Drunk Therapy, conversation.
It's a couple of days after Frank has performed an online set for the charity Tiny Changes online festival and Frank tells us about his relationship with Frightened Rabbit lead singer Scott Hutchison, as well as the evocative song he debuted paying tribute to Scott to conclude his Tiny Changes gig.
Beyond that we discuss the power of the arts in advancing the conversation on mens mental health, hedge porn (told you it went a bit us), a scholarship at Eton, Dunfermline, social media and so so much more. No point reading this really, just go and enjoy.
Check out Frank's tiny gig for Tiny Changes on Facebook and be sure to leave a donation to the charity afterwards if you can https://www.facebook.com/TinyChanges/
Part 2 of our live show recorded in March, 2020 at Broadcast in Glasgow
Mark Cox has left the building and a technical issue means the audio may be lost forever so it's an angry start as someone has to take the blame. Unfortunately the technical issues were sorted to record this half as we revisit some of our most gruesome and poignant tales from the podcast to date. Cheyne plays a weird game, James celebrates an important milestone and Danny discusses ejaculation far too much considering his family are sat in the front row
***Apologies for the dips in sound quality that occur in this episode. Sadly the recording from the sound desk at the venue got corrupted and this is the audio pulled from a camera filming the show that was positioned next to the bar and a wee noisy bastard fan***
March 12th, 2020. One of the last days we were allowed to go to pubs and live events and 70 beautiful souls joined us at Broadcast, Glasgow for the first ever, sold out, Drunk Therapy Live!
In part 1 of the live show we were joined by iconic Scottish comedy actor, Mark Cox. Mark is known for being part of the sketch show Chewin' The Fat, but it's his role as stingy Tam Mullen in Still Game that makes him an instantly recognisable face across the nation. We chat to Mark about the impeding pandemic before it hits, the cultural impact of Still Game, stories from set, Outlander and the most random place he has been asked for an autograph
The murder question is there as well as the last ever Urban Dictionary Quiz (aww)
Huge, huge thanks for Mark for joining us. Check out his new podcast 'Three Down One Across' with Still Game co-stars Jane McCarry and Paul Riley. But not until you listen to this first please.
We're joined by creator and host of the Facebook page The Stayin' Inn, Andy Dunlop for this one to discuss the lockdown online community he has built. How has a test pub quiz on his personal Facebook snowballed into a One Show appearance and over 10,000 followers in such a short space of time? Beyond that we chat touring with Twin Atlantic, memories of the Barras and how the music industry is handling the current pandemic situation. The murder question is posed and takes a dark, but very funny turn that somehow ends in a story about the kids show Fun House
Huge thanks to Andy for joining us, check out The Stayin' Inn here https://www.facebook.com/thestayininn/
