Yep, not gin anymore, these days I drink coffee with my podcasts. Nostalgia really isn't what it used to be, is it. I remember when I was wild, rude, inebriated, etc. etc...

Mind you, seeing as I am driving through to Glasgow once I finish this to engage in sensitive negotiations with a 'hot new band'*, I think half a bottle of gin might not be the wisest preparation, even by my rather slapdash standards. So it's a pot of coffee and some fine new music, and you know, I may even keep the nonsensical rambling to a minimum if I can manage it.

It's going to be weird driving through to Glasgow actually, because I will be taking a friend's car instead of Bette, because it has a working tape player while Bette's is currently out of action. It's still a Volvo estate, but just a normal one, and I have to confess it feels kind of weird that no-one does their 'what the fuck is that?' stare when I drive past. I've kind of grown used to that over the last year or two with the old girl.

This is called the Crumbscast for no better reasons than that I like the name and that it starts with a song called Crumbs, the new single by Jonnie Common. Given I've had to try and think up unique names for all of these bastard things anything which sounds good and has at least a tenuous link to the topic at hand will do.

I've not done a podcast for ages actually, but the last one was the one just before the independence referendum, and I still feel so utterly let down and disappointed with how that went that I've been unable to really talk about it since. On you go, Westminster, you're doing a decent enough job really - at least a better one than we could ever hope to do on our own. Is that really the message we just delivered to the world? Yes, yes I think it is, at least to some degree. How sad.

So you see, probably a good thing that I waited at least a couple of weeks for the worst of the depressed bitterness to wear off. I almost get dragged into it at the start of the podcast, but like a champ I manage to break free and deliver an hour (and a little bit) of the usual awesome music that no-one's really heard of because the world is WRONG about music. Sorry.
