Date: 14th March 2021

Name of show: A Midlife Less Ordinary

Episode title and number: Dancing In The Midlife  Se1Ep6

 Brief summary of show:

“Dancing In The Midlife” is an ode to music, an episode of nostalgia and a journey that relates to how we evolve our music tastes over time. Wayne & Trev get straight into a discussion that sets out their early musical influences and how this basically shaped their youth, because as we understand it, everybody has a soundtrack to their life with the ability to evoke certain emotions when deep in thought about the content of their particular soundtrack.

Bullet points of key topics & time stamps:

Trev: 17:57 

Heavy metal kind of changing the Hard Rock because obviously was the grunge thing. Our band, I was in a couple of bands, our guitarist who's dad was American. He went over to America with his girlfriend I remember him bringing me a Mother Love Bone album and a Pearl Jam album first podium album back. So we released into sort of the sort of grunge bands before it was mainstream Soundgarden louder than love


 Wayne: 23:16 

          There's plenty for us to go to where we feel comfortable, isn't there? I mean,        exactly. Yeah. I mean, to be honest, I mean, I know we're talking about festivals and gigs next week, but I mean the amount of bands we don't actually listen to when we go Oh yeah, we'll go to that ZZ Top or on this? We never listen to them. We've only been around in the grass drunk

00:25
frankly, I'm still Wayne and
00:31
Trev's here.
00:32  Trev
I am here as always.
00:34  Wayne
And today your host, and
00:34
we're here today to do an
00:37
episode entitled dancing in I
00:37
was gonna sing it then but
00:40
dancing in the midlife, It is
00:40
not good. Dancing in the midlife
00:44
and Trev can explain that title
00:44
to you.
00:46  Trev
Well, it comes from one of
00:46
my favorite Bob Lee my favorite
00:49
bands in Lizzie. Probably
00:49
they're fun keys tune with a
00:53
funky studio podcast was over.
00:55  Wayne
And it's been re released
00:55
a few times. hasn't it Trev?
00:59  Trev
Not for the better? No,
00:59
no,
01:02  Wayne
I don't think we're
01:02
definitely not go there. I'll
01:03
definitely upset if that's the
01:03
case. I don't want to upset you
01:06
because you're not gonna hear is
01:06
that awful verse. You're the
01:08
talent.
01:10
In my mind, this is a great one.
01:10
We're going to do a cool music
01:13
one now I've got I can't even
01:13
get their name. I don't know you
01:16
don't want to think of it as
01:16
fine. But we'll get to that
01:18
actually. Because today's
01:18
episode is basically music
01:22
tastes and how and what? Why
01:22
should you be listening to a
01:27
certain genre when you get to a
01:27
certain age? Obviously, as
01:29
always, this is our opinion. You
01:29
don't have to take any of our
01:33
opinions to heart is meant to be
01:33
our thoughts and bit of harmless
01:37
fun. We're just here to say what
01:37
we think is not cool. And what
01:41
we hope you'll join us on this
01:41
journey. so Trev we have
01:46
obviously mentioned before
01:46
you've been into music
01:48
essentially from a single digit
01:48
age. how did it get started as
01:52
your love of music.
01:53  Trev
Mine well. musics always
01:53
been a family. I don't mean
01:57
performing. I mean, family have
01:57
always listened to music. But
02:01
that was a an old school,
02:01
rockabilly. So he liked all of
02:04
Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lewis, or
02:04
with Jerry Lewis, all that kind
02:08
of thing. So that was about but
02:08
I think the biggest thing was my
02:12
older brother who's nine years
02:12
older than me. And he was a big
02:16
rock fan. Obviously we're
02:16
talking of in the 70s though
02:20
heavy metal heavy rock. So
02:20
growing up all I heard coming
02:25
out of his bedroom were bands
02:25
like Thin Lizzy rush, Motorhead
02:29
all those kind of bands mount
02:29
Eden, Rory Gallagher, so it was
02:34
never forced on me. But when
02:34
you've got it
02:37
music banging out the bedroom
02:37
next to me, you're gonna Of
02:42
course like to it
02:43  Wayne
Did you like it straight
02:43
away Trev?
02:45  Trev
Yes
02:46
from what I can remember
03:32
So you couldn't help Bobby to be
03:32
a music wise I think he's you
03:37
can't force yourself to lock as
03:37
I tried to gain a bit of soul
03:40
mix I thought when I was 13 or14
03:40
which is obviously when you're
03:45
thinking about the opposite sex
03:45
because no one really liked rock
03:50
music and heavy metal at my
03:50
school I think I was the only
03:53
kid in a year that was really
03:53
into it
03:57
that you were going to get a
03:57
girlfriend that I huge that was
04:00
so important. So I thought by
04:00
liking different soul music and
04:04
that
04:04  Wayne
are we talking him Luther
04:04
Vandross here
04:06  Trev
Oh yeah, that kind of
04:06
thing. You know, the Pet Shop
04:10
Boys, boys. Yeah, yeah, they'd
04:10
have an album by them I'm a
04:15
prince as well on print which is
04:15
good that's no disaster because
04:19
printers ever so good.
04:21
But yeah, but you want to be
04:21
more accepted by it. You know,
04:25
because when you're a kid and
04:25
you're younger like that, you
04:28
don't really want to stand out
04:28
that much. Sometime you want to
04:31
fit in obviously you want to be
04:31
part of the cool crowd and all
04:34
that it never really bothered
04:34
me. It was more the female side
04:38
of it.
04:38  Wayne
Yes, that made sense.
04:38
There is something in common
04:40
with him. And then
04:41  Trev
it slowly comes back
04:41
around to you and you just find
04:43
out that you don't actually like
04:43
that kind of thing. And I just
04:47
started getting through bands
04:47
like you to and the police.
04:52
Simple Minds. Then I started
04:52
listening to rush again Genesis.
04:56
I still like a lot of only prog
04:56
rock now It went full circle and
05:02
then obviously I got back into
05:02
Iron Maiden and that but I was a
05:05
kid I was just a full on metal
05:05
head I made and I worship when I
05:08
was 1011 I was absolutely I made
05:08
made
05:12  Wayne
really was no saying
05:12
something to him I mean you use
05:14
Did you still have the badges
05:14
and I didn't understand if I'm
05:19
being honest I was like how
05:19
somebody's got to love love
05:22
these bands
05:22  Trev
You know, I've always seen
05:22
music as as my main lifestyle
05:27
it's changed the way I've looked
05:27
behind a whole social life it's
05:32
never been something that I've
05:32
just as been in the background.
05:37
Yeah, I think music has been the
05:37
main molding of me if that makes
05:42
this I was never a as I used to
05:42
call it a weekend rocker where
05:46
he's worked at net West doing
05:46
nothing when we've worked in
05:49
that network. She's probably a
05:49
good job but you know you there
05:52
are other banks available
05:52
already. Oh, same tender like
05:58
but yeah, I'd never was one to
05:58
kind of be that guy then at
06:03
weekends, get the leather jacket
06:03
out and wear it you know and I
06:08
was I had both the guys are not
06:08
about we've we're into it full
06:12
on your lifestyle. I think a lot
06:12
of people are still now you do
06:17
help Dr. Amin was he was true to
06:17
it all through school.
06:20  Wayne
You went into sixth form
06:20
at the school we used to attend
06:22
so I see a few of the guys were
06:22
into that genre, weren't they?
06:27  Trev
Yeah, exactly. Yeah, yeah.
06:27
The guy was in a band with Neil
06:31
he was into I think basically I
06:31
think coin were a big influence
06:36
was obviously coin where a lot
06:36
of major hard rock band in the
06:39
70s Yeah, and then obviously
06:39
they changed a lot lot of other
06:43
bands do and grow on rush dude.
06:43
And different sounding I think
06:47
one of the biggest things for a
06:47
lot of kids are in rock music,
06:52
like was waiting, like a kind of
06:52
magic come out because you had
06:55
the Highlander movie course the
06:55
soundtrack for that that was a
06:58
big thing wasn't it? I think
06:58
even yourself Oh,
07:01  Wayne
that got me you know
07:01
listening to Queen boy. Yeah,
07:03
yeah. And
07:04  Trev
that that then then
07:04
obviously, even quaking up saw
07:07
progressing. Like maybe a bit of
07:07
I made a bit of Def Leppard. And
07:10
then you know, once you and to
07:10
be honest with music is, is is
07:15
there to be explored that when
07:15
you used to get seat albums, or
07:19
vinyl when I was a kid you The
07:19
good thing about actually owning
07:22
vinyl or CD you had the book
07:22
clear where you you could look
07:26
at it and you'd see what band
07:26
aids played with or what Band
07:29
Aid thing so you'd listen to
07:29
them and that was how it grew. I
07:33
don't know how kids do that now.
07:33
I don't if they go and I suppose
07:36
they go on their website or
07:36
YouTube link and find it from
07:39
there. But yeah, you sit in your
07:39
bedroom and you'd listen to it.
07:43
And you'd be sitting there
07:43
looking at the artwork on the
07:46
album cover and a special thanks
07:46
and stuff so that would that
07:49
would give you an inkling of
07:49
what to do what to listen to as
07:53
well. We thought that was great.
07:53
I thought that was been I feel a
07:56
bit sorry that it became a bit
07:56
too disposable now but that's
07:59
another episode we might
07:59
definitely discuss that
08:02  Wayne
you do stuff you used to
08:02
spend many Saturday in a record
08:07
shop flicking through Oh
08:08  Trev
yeah. Loved it. Yeah.
08:08
Loved in the bargain. been
08:11
getting cheap. 12 inch singles.
08:11
Yeah, it was brilliant. It
08:15
really was you know, there used
08:15
to be especially record shops in
08:18
London that just did heavy metal
08:18
and heavy rock album did
08:20  Wayne
you use to go to London?
08:20
Yeah,
08:22  Trev
there's a shop called Shai
08:22
days ago my cousin and other
08:26
guys are knocked about with it
08:26
was brilliant shade was great.
08:30
You know you get bands turn up
08:30
there to sign stuff. They
08:33
because they play a lot
08:33
Hammersmith which was a big
08:35
venue in heavy metal those users
08:35
now please come
08:39
face to toe now the Apollo,
08:39
isn't it? I think you get Bands
08:43
play there or the marquee. And
08:43
then during the day before they
08:46
played in the evening, they'd go
08:46
and sign albums in shades, and
08:50
you'd queue up outside. Yeah, it
08:50
was a big thing. It was a
08:53
lifestyle. So it really was you
08:53
because you've lived that tribe.
08:57
And you obviously you you I saw,
08:57
you know when I bumped into you
09:00
in your 20, early 20s. Your
09:00
taste of music has evolved quite
09:04
vastly since since then. I think
09:04
it has to I think you can't to
09:09
be a slight heavy metal heavy
09:09
rock has always been seen as
09:11
same as like early rap music and
09:11
punk has been it's always seen
09:15
as quite an angry form of music,
09:15
aggressive. And I think as you
09:18
get a bit older, you're just got
09:18
nothing to be that angry about.
09:21
I know, obviously, there
09:21
probably is. But you don't
09:25
without sounding like a cliche.
09:25
I'm not saying not being mellow.
09:28
But you do I think, because a
09:28
lot of the bands would rather
09:31
listen to the southern rock band
09:31
or Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top are
09:35
a massive fan of both of those.
09:59  Unknown
Music I think when we
09:59
were kids, they used to be kind
10:04
of you had your kiddy rock, or
10:04
your kiddy music. And then you
10:08
had what your dad listened to.
10:08
Yeah, but I think whether we've
10:12
just become those dads that with
10:12
the sort of driving albums
10:17  Trev
or they get dad this for
10:17
father's day, he's got like,
10:20
it's got Boston on it, and he's
10:20
got Clapton, but maybe that's
10:25
that. Was it?
10:29  Wayne
A good band? To be
10:29
honest, that is good. Yeah,
10:31
they're right. Yeah, but yeah,
10:31
that's the thing as well. I
10:33
think maybe because you've gone
10:33
if you've got a tape recorder
10:36
genre of music. I look at Yeah,
10:36
I would say you know, rather
10:40
than yourself who's who's been
10:40
into proper artists your whole
10:44
life.
10:45
I've been following the generic
10:45
path of pop music
10:49
and then getting
10:50  Trev
a mess
10:50  Wayne
because you never know
10:50
really influenced Exactly. I'm
10:53
the oldest in my family. I tell
10:53
you there was no influence
10:57
there. Well not older than my
10:57
dad of course or mum come to
10:59
think of it
10:59
well, not quiet now. He was very
10:59
young with me. But he didn't
11:04
even have a record player. So we
11:04
did you know, it was limited to
11:07
Top of the Pops. And what's put
11:07
in front of you, basically. Yes,
11:10  Trev
you missed that Top of the
11:10
Pops. I think I can't believe I
11:13
know you've got channels and
11:13
music and stuff. But you know,
11:17
we all sat in
11:17  Wayne
front of it. Didn't we on
11:17
a Thursday night?
11:19  Trev
It was Yeah, no. Watching
11:19
no Frankie Goes to Hollywood on
11:23
there. Yeah, relax. And I see in
11:23
there things you just said a lot
11:29
of parents didn't get it. This
11:29
is like this is what I'm saying
11:33
that there's no music for the
11:33
masses. Now I think that there's
11:38
so many it's more fragmented.
11:41  Wayne
Or you've got the super
11:41
bands that kind of teeny bop
11:43
kind of manufactured stuff. And
11:43
then you've got all the other
11:47
genres, haven't you?
11:48  Trev
Yeah, exactly. But yeah,
11:48
that was the thing with tabula
11:51
pops. It was just on we talked
11:51
about it the next day
11:55  Wayne
didn't wait did you see
11:55
something? I never watching the
11:57
same channel as you now on
11:57
anything. Oh, wait, unless you
11:59
tell me to watch a film when
11:59
it's on.
12:02  Trev
me there are other ones
12:02
that there is loads of different
12:05
things and loads of different
12:05
choices. But I think it waters
12:09
it all down. Sometimes you can
12:09
just Yeah, what's on and that
12:14
sticks with you? That's the
12:14
reason I think, guys, people
12:17
have eyes guys and guys and
12:17
girls. Remember so much for my
12:21
era because there wasn't much of
12:21
a bail. So we get to that that's
12:26
what you do all watched and that
12:26
you will listen to so it does.
12:30
Yeah, it does. Does it is a sort
12:30
of bottom there, isn't it? Yeah,
12:33
definitely.
12:33  Wayne
We experienced that all
12:33
the time. I can remember tapes
12:36
out of your dual cassette deck
12:36
of
12:39  Trev
the night. Yeah, I used to
12:39
listen to the Friday rock shows
12:42
online from midnight till two I
12:42
think it's when your teen Oh,
12:47
yeah, yeah, I used to tape them
12:47
all on like my sort of big old
12:51
cassette recorder and they used
12:51
to do live bits from Reading
12:54
Festival and the Monsters of
12:54
Rock and you type them in if
12:58
you'd listened to I'm ever
12:58
staying up one night because
13:01
Metallica were on there. And
13:01
there was just as Justice for
13:04
always coming out the L mafia,
13:04
and a died monster puppets. And
13:08
they were talking that they
13:08
played harvester of sorrow for
13:10
the first time. And like, you
13:10
know, the next day, I didn't
13:13
stop listening to it. I just
13:13
kept taking the tape back and
13:16
but that was part of the beauty
13:16
of it. He was crying. Yeah, no,
13:19
but one of the things I think
13:19
was a big influence on us. And I
13:22
would have thought you with this
13:22
idea. I
13:24  Wayne
was gonna say music. I
13:24
was influenced.
13:26  Trevor Deeley
But yeah,
13:26
European too. So yeah, it was
13:28
MTV. Yeah,
13:29  Wayne
it was the MTV generation
13:29
the video.
13:32  Trev
I lived it. I could have
13:32
watched when I was between the
13:35
ages of 15 to 25. I could just
13:35
leave MTV on 24 hours a day. And
13:42
just it was just brilliant. It
13:42
just had every every genre
13:46  Wayne
of music is covered and
13:46
the videos with so
13:50
much money have gone into it.
13:51  Trev
Yeah, yeah, exactly. They
13:51
were it was just the last time.
13:55
Yeah, definitely. And I think
13:55
the last time we've only got a
13:58
look at the November rain video
13:58
revenue. Yes. Roses. Yes. It's
14:02
just like a mini movie. They
14:02
might spend so much money on it.
14:05
I think the last time I really
14:05
thought even TV was relevant
14:11
music video. Roy's was when the
14:11
Beastie Boys released the
14:15
sabotage video. Yeah, I think
14:15
that was the breaking of it.
14:24
That was that was it? I don't
14:24
remember there being any.
14:27
Really? Because again, where do
14:27
you see music videos now? Unless
14:30
you watch them on YouTube? You
14:30
don't know? No, I say I
14:34
sometimes call Chris Isaac
14:34
wicked game just because its a
14:37
good song and video.
14:39
But they hate him. But even on
14:39
Channel Four. There was like the
14:44
chart show on a Saturday
14:44
morning, wasn't it? Yes, they
14:46
had different charts for
14:46
different genres of music. Yes,
14:51
you might you might get a
14:51
snippet of a Motley Crue video
14:54
on their
14:55  Wayne
channel four quite
14:55
influential in the 80s. Very big
15:00  Trev
was when we were really
15:00
young and I only really know
15:02
about that because my brother
15:02
would watched it and they had a
15:05
massive acts on it in Lizzie or
15:05
on it ZZ Top or on it the police
15:09
were there was like massive acts
15:09
I think our trainees years I
15:14
think the one that was there was
15:14
the word wasn't it? That's it
15:18
yeah because they had like the
15:18
Varner on their corrosion
15:21
conform where you were on there
15:21
so poultry was that Amanda
15:23
Cabernet and all there was and
15:23
Terry Christians are interested
15:26
in this. And I did some pretty
15:26
bizarre things but music was
15:29
keeping on that topic. They had
15:29
some really really good bands on
15:33
there five no more on there. So
15:33
you had all this really diverse
15:38
music that because he was online
15:38
you could either Rage Against
15:42
machine run there. I remember
15:42
trying to get tickets to go. I
15:46
think it was when when when
15:46
chrome conformably wrong.
15:49
Because we I'd seen crazy
15:49
performing at the marquee or
15:52
somewhere quite small. Yeah, the
15:52
night before and then they
15:55
because they were touring. They
15:55
play they need us to get there.
15:58
But yeah, so MTV was a big
15:58
thing. Going back to that wasn't
16:02
it for us
16:05  Wayne
Yeah, I mean, I really
16:05
could I loved Billy Idol. I had
16:08
some friends who were punk
16:08
rockers liking Generation X and
16:11
clash and I was influenced
16:11
slightly and then I saw these
16:14
MTV videos where we've got a
16:14
bike smashing through windows in
16:18
a church and rebellious you
16:18
know, and I'm angry like,
16:22
Yeah, and I loved it. And I was
16:22
obsessed. And that's when you
16:26
start having the hairstyles
16:26
different and
16:30  Trev
influence your life. It
16:30
does change. very controversial
16:34
here.
16:36  Unknown
And by all means leave
16:36
a message on our on our website,
16:39
little blue button, your blue
16:39
microphone bar, but I like a lot
16:44
of punk you know, Black Flag and
16:44
the remote, but one punk band I
16:48
don't like at all the clash. Why
16:48
is that? Because the commercial
16:51
just never got it. Just No, I
16:51
don't know. I just never got
16:54
them. I just don't see. I just
16:54
really don't I know. They love
16:58
him. But I just do not see. It's
16:58
really weird, isn't it? I don't
17:02
see the clash. I see him as kind
17:02
of like the kind of madness of
17:07
punk rock a feet away kind of
17:07
you know, they're fun, you know?
17:10
Yeah, I don't I I've never
17:10
really been I've never really
17:14
understood reggae. I've never
17:14
been a big reggae fan. I know
17:17
you kind of like more the
17:17
commercial stuff. Yeah, yes. But
17:21
that was because I used to look
17:21
like it more than anything else.
17:29  Wayne
He used to do me well in
17:29
them day so I thought I better
17:31
get to know the music
17:37  Trev
obviously No, no no no.
17:37
That was but yeah I got a gigs
17:41
as well was a massive thing. We
17:41
will cover that in the next
17:44
episode. I believe we're doing
17:44
gigs we are
17:46  Wayne
Yes. So so so you're
17:46
selling your music to in your
17:50
20s tribute you've gone through
17:50
your angry stage kind of thing
17:53
you you stopped wearing
17:57  Trev
heavy metal kind of
17:57
changing the Hard Rock because
17:59
obviously was the grunge thing.
18:01
Our band, I was in a couple of
18:01
bands, our guitarist who's dad
18:05
was American. He went over to
18:05
America with his girlfriend I
18:08
remember him bringing me a
18:08
Mother Love Bone album and a
18:11
Pearl Jam album first podium
18:11
album back.
18:15
So we released into sort of the
18:15
sort of grunge bands before it
18:18
was mainstream Soundgarden
18:18
louder than love. And that
18:23
changed heavy rock and heavy
18:23
metal because it wasn't leather
18:27
and stuff anymore. It was the
18:27
cardigans and moleskin cargo
18:33
shoes and converse he changed it
18:33
completely. And that was really
18:38
the sort of thought of the
18:38
alternative rock like toll and
18:41
Nine Inch Nails and that kind of
18:41
stuff. So yeah, I think when
18:44
you're into rock music as a
18:44
genre as a kid, and you and
18:48
you're into it, you follow it
18:48
all the way through so you go
18:51
from liking some of heavy metal
18:51
and thrash metal then you kind
18:56
of get into the biker rock or
18:56
the coal or wood into the coal
18:59
and AC DC and then obviously the
18:59
the grunge era and then you get
19:03
industrial it's there's such a
19:03
lot of different genres in rock
19:07
music and then obviously there's
19:07
not when I was in my early 20s
19:11
and mid 20s there was a sort of
19:11
stoner rocker kayas your
19:14
everything you can never get
19:14
bored Do you still keep up with
19:18
it? Because
19:18  Wayne
I notice that even though
19:18
now your genre of music has
19:21
changed we'll get to in a minute
19:21
and you know right round Yeah,
19:24
you
19:25  Trev
still keep it is it
19:25
magazines you
19:27  Wayne
keep him with what's
19:27
going on is new. I
19:29  Trev
still hear I still got
19:29
kind of magazine, I still get
19:31
classic rock I don't get sort of
19:31
kurang on kurang was the Bible
19:35
back in the day? Yes. But
19:35
obviously now that it's more of
19:41
a early sort of late teens and
19:41
that kind of stuff. So it
19:44
doesn't really need to deliver
19:44
billion but now I've stopped
19:47
getting there. Because you do
19:47
that. Again, you have to kind of
19:50
go with this is what we're going
19:50
to talk about. You have to sort
19:53
of go with what your age you
19:53
don't want to be that 40 year
19:57
old 50 it's up to you. You can
19:57
if you want to say don't take it
20:00
Seriously but I just don't think
20:00
it's very cool 50 year old sort
20:04
of dancing around to some of the
20:04
new bands to die
20:06  Wayne
well a little mix
20:08  Trev
well yeah we do know
20:08
people that like
20:11  Wayne
I think you're talking
20:11
more about you're talking about
20:13
more like Linkin Park.
20:15  Trev
Again even they're kind of
20:15
known as classic to a lot of
20:18
younger guys and younger people
20:18
I did like linkin park in my 30s
20:21
Did you think I'm gonna be mean
20:21
to you? Because you went we saw
20:26
them at download
20:27  Wayne
I do like them I did go
20:27
first
20:29  Trev
it was no it wasn't my
20:29
thing but I completely
20:33
understood it so I'm talking
20:33
about is like the kind of baby
20:36
mail and stuff when I saw a bit
20:36
of a good laugh that you know
20:41
really if if a person's thought
20:41
a guy in his 50s listen to baby
20:44
metal What's that about? I don't
20:44
I don't get that but then that's
20:47
up to the individual spikes
20:51  Wayne
is there is there plenty
20:51
of people that are are doing
20:53
that and listening to that?
20:55  Trev
I think when you I I don't
20:55
go to a lot of the kind of
21:00
download festivals and stuff
21:00
anymore. I'd when I go to well
21:04
you've been a quite a few of
21:04
them with us we go to sort of
21:06
smaller ones on black deer and
21:06
other ones a smaller ramble in
21:09
May. And the demographic you get
21:09
there he's obviously an older
21:14
person. Yes, because yeah, no,
21:14
but that see that old I never
21:18
thought unless when I was
21:18
younger, I just didn't see it
21:20
but
21:22
its cool now to like music when
21:22
you are older. It's not just a
21:27
thing that young people listen
21:27
to anymore, but you've got a
21:30
classic rock magazine, you've
21:30
got plenty rock on the radio.
21:34
There is a sort of demographic
21:34
of 35 to 60 year olds that Kane
21:40
still think is cold and listen
21:40
To hear UFO on the radio and
21:44
stuff like that.
21:58
Yeah, this is it. I think that
21:58
that's opening a new There seems
22:03
to be a decisive kind of break
22:03
now between the kind of download
22:07
kind of group of people that go
22:07
the younger generation. Yeah,
22:12
and and obviously, I'm sure
22:12
you'd go to that if somebody was
22:15
there. If
22:18
it was very tempting. I was very
22:18
tempted last year because the
22:21
Friday was great. Like, I think
22:21
three of my favorite bands were
22:26
on the I know I was really into
22:26
a band when I was younger called
22:28
Tesla. And they were playing on
22:28
it early on the main stage.
22:33
blackberry smoker I really like
22:33
Ron and one of my probably my
22:36
favorite band of the last 20
22:36
years clutch we're playing off
22:39
of blackberry smoke round so it
22:39
was like the ultimate thing but
22:42
again, where we live is quite a
22:42
distance to travel for one day
22:46
and into come home and they are
22:46
Don't get me wrong if it would
22:49
have been it would have been
22:49
closer it would have been in
22:52
Milton Keynes like some of the
22:52
big day out the Metallica stuff,
22:55
then I would have gone no
22:55
problem at all. I've got no
22:57
problem with the festival, just
22:57
that.
22:59  Wayne
I don't we're not going
22:59
to be living in a tent these
23:01
days. Oh, we've
23:04  Trev
gotta be wrong. I really
23:04
admire people of all ages to do
23:07
that. Because there is a lobby,
23:07
we still go to download. There's
23:10
a lot of people older than and
23:10
go. But now it's not for me. I
23:14
don't think it's for you either.
23:14
Is it?
23:16  Wayne
There's plenty plenty for
23:16
us to go to where we feel
23:19
comfortable, isn't there? I
23:19
mean, exactly. Yeah. I mean, to
23:22
be honest, I mean, I know we're
23:22
talking about festivals and gigs
23:25
next week, but I mean the amount
23:25
of bands we don't actually
23:28
listen to when we go Oh yeah,
23:28
we'll go to that ZZ Top or on
23:30
this? We never listen to them.
23:30
We've only been around in the
23:32
grass drunk
23:35  Trev
that's just the point of
23:35
getting out having a good time
23:38
is Yeah, trauma knees if you if
23:38
you kind of be if you become an
23:42
again, I'm not having a pop it's
23:42
just not for me and it's not for
23:45
you. But if you're one of those
23:45
people that's got an itinerary
23:48
of rock chick you're not worried
23:48
about it's like going on holiday
23:53
and worrying about doing this
23:53
it's the idea and enjoy it. Oh
23:56
and enjoy it. Yeah, so And to be
23:56
honest, if you stumble a
24:00
festival you stumble across
24:00
loads of bands that you never
24:04
dreamed that you'd listen to or
24:04
even give the time of data that
24:07
actually they're quite good.
24:07
Yeah, so there's exactly i but
24:11
don't put yourself under
24:11
pressure trying to run around
24:13
from stage to stage to catch the
24:17
by all means say your favorite
24:17
band. or you really like them?
24:19
Yeah, by all means,
24:20  Wayne
follow our example pay
24:20
150 quid to go and then don't
24:23
watch anything. Just spend
24:23
another 100 quid on beer in a
24:26
day
24:29
good value to be heard. I loved
24:29
every single one.
24:33  Trev
Oh, yeah, it was how what
24:33
bands are the best?
24:36  Unknown
Yeah.
24:38  Trev
I think cuz it used to be
24:38
people back in the day and I
24:40
understand Germany so God would
24:40
know the tracklist twice. I'd be
24:45
lucky if they turned up on
24:45
stage. I'd be so drunk. ZZ Top.
24:51
Yeah. You may remember that you
24:51
remember was their intro? Yes. I
25:00
I was lucky. I'm lucky to have
25:00
seen them at a Wembley. Yeah,
25:02
I'm glad I saw him before. But I
25:02
just remember like standing in
25:06
these fields, the kind of
25:06
percussion.
25:10
And it was it
25:12  Wayne
was because they're
25:12
headlining, it's too late in the
25:14
day, we've been drinking all
25:14
day.
25:16  Trev
To be honest, when I was
25:16
younger, I don't think I ever
25:20
saw many headliners, because you
25:20
just had enough of this. I'm
25:24
going back. So you'd miss like
25:24
Whitesnake and AC DC for the
25:28
fifth six. If it was made, and
25:28
then I'd always see a B make an
25:33
effort.
25:33  Wayne
And I'm glad it's not
25:33
only me that's making you miss
25:35
these things trip.
25:37
But no, no, no, that didn't
25:37
sound very sincere trev. But
25:40
I've now I've got something for
25:40
you. I don't know we didn't do
25:43
it last week. But I've got a
25:43
little surprise, we will bring
25:45
you back test tray for this
25:45
week. And I'm not gonna
26:00
And there we go. There's some
26:00
metal to get you in the zone.
26:05
And yes, I'm comfortable. Got up
26:05
now. We've got four questions on
26:09
Thin Lizzy. Now really, you
26:09
embarrassed right now, you know,
26:13
I'm not being funny. You visited
26:13
his grave? You've spoke to his
26:16
mother. And yeah, so you know,
26:16
there's no pressure here at all.
26:21
I would expect you to know the
26:21
answers to these these are
26:23
actually multiple choice
26:23
questions now do I'm going to
26:25
ask why do you want me to give
26:25
you the multiple choice answers
26:28
or do you want to try and guess
26:28
it without having them? Or do
26:30
you want ever got the first one
26:30
to see how you get on? Let me
26:33
get a first one because that's
26:33
like having a got someone on a
26:35
quiz show when I say what do you
26:35
want to gamble the
26:38  Trev
brain?
26:39  Wayne
Do there's no money
26:39
involved to your trip? That
26:41
you're not gonna get rich is
26:41
nice. Okay, well, I'll give you
26:44
the first one.
26:45  Trev
I was the first one. All
26:45
right,
26:46  Wayne
which band opened for
26:46
Thin Lizzy at the first ever
26:49
slain concert in Ireland in
26:49
1981.
26:57  Trev
Something tells me it's u2
26:57
So do you want me to go through
27:01
the options? Just to go
27:02  Wayne
Would you like to stick
27:02
with that and look really
27:04
clever, or really not clever?
27:05  Trev
Whichever way you think it
27:05
might go? For some reason. It's
27:09
up to you to or the Boomtown
27:09
rats.
27:13  Wayne
Are they I? I've given
27:13
you two. I've helped you too
27:16
much in the past Trev with this
27:16
and I'm not going to do any more
27:18
because you're making you look
27:18
good. And it's not. It's not
27:21
good for me. But do you? What do
27:21
you want to go with? You?
27:29
No
27:35
go with you u2
27:37
Oh,
27:41
yeah, I don't. And that's why
27:41
I've given it to you because
27:43
he's done this to be before. And
27:43
I can't handle it. You say
27:46
something? You said Oh, I know.
27:46
I'm going back in time, but a
27:49
beard one? Oh, yeah,
27:49
testosterone would make your
27:51
beard but I'm gonna go for
27:51
wisdom teeth. And I'm like, why?
27:55
You've just explained the
27:55
answer.
28:02  Trev
I think that's fair to
28:02
give that to you. Because you
28:04
said your two first and if I
28:04
didn't know why he would have
28:08
been different if I said the
28:08
boom j always say go with you
28:10
got done. They go over again. I
28:10
do. Yeah.
28:12
And I have got a good guy.
28:12
You're gonna know this one I
28:15
know without telling
28:16
what Finn Lizzie song contains
28:16
the lyrics roll me over and turn
28:20
me around.
28:23
cowboy. So
28:27  Wayne
yes, well done.
28:29  Trev
And you say this is a
28:29
multiple choice.
28:32
little bit of trivia
28:34
big heavy metal band back in the
28:34
day white lion. Their lead
28:37
singer Mike trim who I did think
28:37
I was at one voice, hair and
28:41
stuff. And I was in a band that
28:41
he used to listen to that every
28:44
time before I went onstage.
28:44
Yeah, inspiration. Yeah, he did.
28:47
He used to use a use a piece
28:47
headband on the staff. And he
28:50
would always listen to the
28:50
cowboy somebody Lizzie because
28:52
he was so into music. Well,
28:52
thanks for that Trev
28:56  Wayne
And I'm sure you I'm sure
28:56
you will probably hear so you
28:59
probably know this one. Yeah,
28:59
who did thin Lizzie tour with in
29:02
2004.
29:09
I can give you the four possible
29:09
answers if you're gone. Okay. I
29:14
know that you said this would
29:14
mean I can just not All right.
29:18
Well, no, by the way you say
29:18
it's over YouTube. Guns and
29:22
Roses. Deep Purple. Are the
29:22
Rolling Stones. Guns and Roses.
29:26
No. Really?
29:30
Really? I'll give you two sad
29:30
trombones and just because
29:33
really, it's deep purple. Oh
29:33
Christ. Why oh,
29:38  Trev
no, no, no, they did play
29:38
with because that was obviously
29:42
the Scott Gorham. Ricky Warrick
29:42
one. I know. They played with
29:47
Guns and Roses as well. On
29:49  Wayne
Yeah, that's why they're
29:49
included in the four answers.
29:53
Yeah, as I say it's not us but
29:53
we'll go on to number four. And
29:58
what thin Lizzie song
30:00
hit number one in Ireland in
30:00
1972 to 73 Do you want the four
30:05
possible answers 1972 73 a
30:05
cowboy song. Whiskey in the jar.
30:12
The boys are back in town or do
30:12
anything you want to what thin
30:16
Lizzy song hit number one in
30:16
Ireland 1972 to 73.
30:21  Trev
whiskey in a jar
30:25  Wayne
well done Trev that's not
30:25
a bad showing at all. I don't
30:28
think soon as you got two of
30:28
them without the four possible
30:30
answers. I think you've you've
30:30
kept your dignity.
30:33  Trev
So yeah, that for you.
30:36  Wayne
Is it true? You finished
30:36
his trip there so you can relax
30:39
again? Get some red wine down
30:39
there. Yeah, exactly.
30:45
Exactly. I like that little
30:45
segment They will say when it
30:46
gets your brain working. Yeah.
30:46
Yeah.
30:51  Trev
Okay, yeah.
30:55  Wayne
saying things like, what
30:55
Russian artists? Yes. 16th
30:59
century? Yeah. Yeah, thanks for
30:59
that trouble. Yeah.
31:04
Give me the multiple choice cuz
31:04
I'm sure I get it. Yeah. So
31:12
whodyanickabolockoff. That's the
31:12
one isnt it?
31:15
so, now yet up to now Trev.
31:15
we've, we've, you know, I'm
31:20
leaving some of your new music
31:20
tastes now. You know, the kind
31:23
of country scene. We've been to
31:23
some of the festivals great. I'm
31:26
really digging the new music
31:26
genre, so I can really enjoy
31:30
kind of grower, isn't it? Yes.
31:34  Trev
And don't get me wrong,
31:34
get something to be 10 years
31:37
ago, and I never would have
31:37
believed I'd be listening to
31:39
solve a lot of the country I
31:39
listen to now. But it's mellow.
31:43
It's got a cool vibe. What I
31:43
like about a lot of that kind of
31:46
thing is obviously it's still a
31:46
bit rock and roll. Yes. Still a
31:52
bit bad. Although I think the
31:52
trouble is it was kind of when
31:57
garage grunge came out and don't
31:57
get me wrong. It needed to kill
32:00
off so the hair male and bands
32:00
on dock and a motley crew, but
32:04
there was no real rock stars
32:04
anymore. I think when people
32:09
were missing zombies. Yeah, you
32:09
do need ease rock and roll
32:14
still. So you need to like drink
32:14
a bit of whiskey you need to you
32:18
know you need to. It's an
32:18
escape, isn't it? Yes, that's
32:21
the thing. It's like it
32:21
shouldn't be you know, you want
32:24
it all you know, people. If
32:24
you're in a state like that, you
32:28
wouldn't have got folk heroes
32:28
like Lemmy and stuff. No exactly
32:32
just epitomized rock I think the
32:32
nearest one out of all of them,
32:35
so I'm a massive fan of them,
32:35
but I know people love them. I
32:38
don't dislike them a lot with
32:38
the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl
32:41
seems to have become this rock a
32:41
mecca doesn't he? Yeah, you
32:45
know, the nice man of rock and I
32:45
get it and i think i think it
32:49
appeals to everyone. You
32:49
definitely needs that because
32:52
you want personalities in it
32:52
Alice Cooper and stuff you don't
32:56
when music becomes that this is
32:56
enough faceless music out there.
33:01
You know you need someone I
33:01
think so for our generation
33:05
anyway, would you say that?
33:07  Wayne
If I was to sum up your
33:07
music tastes now that you know
33:11
you haven't got particular I
33:11
know you still have Yeah, all of
33:14
it but as a whole now what you
33:14
would put your name down to go
33:17
and see somebody like the Super
33:17
soccers or something.
33:19  Trev
Yeah. A clutch clutch
33:19
attaches well, so of course
33:23
Yeah, gotcha. Yeah, Carter, the
33:23
band that you know when they
33:26
play with Thin Lizzy and
33:26
Motorhead. It was like a dream
33:28
come true to me. seen them
33:28
support the good thing unclutch
33:34
have changed a hell of a lot in
33:34
since I've liked them. You know,
33:38
they were a lot kind of harder
33:38
and not a punk band, but they
33:42
had a bit of a punk influence.
33:42
He was a lot Kinder. And now
33:45
they've got that kind of laid
33:45
back ZZ Top bluesy feel. blues
33:50
is a big thing for me as well
33:50
now. Yes, Stevie Ray Vaughan is
33:53
listening to stuff like that
33:53
blue band or not. They're a bit
33:56
commercial. They're really good.
33:56
Like King King. There's a story
33:59
spade. Yeah, the whole blues is
33:59
very emotional music. So
34:03
outlawed rock. blues rock is
34:03
very emotional news. I think.
34:07
Southern rock. Yeah. Yeah. When
34:07
you get to the side you get a
34:10
bit reflective? Yes. Or you look
34:10
back on you know, and that and I
34:14
think that kind of genre of
34:14
music. Does it very well. Yeah,
34:22
yeah. I Yeah, I think so.
34:24  Wayne
I really enjoyed the gig
34:24
sees that, you know, I never
34:26
feel out of place when we go to
34:26
you know,
34:29  Trev
no, I you know, I still go
34:29
to I still want to go to the
34:32
sort of stoner rock festivals.
34:32
Like, you know, that one that
34:38
we've been to a couple of times,
34:38
that's really good because I
34:40
like a lot of bands from that
34:40
genre.
34:44
The desert fest which is in
34:44
Camden years great. Yeah, you've
34:47
been haven't you.
34:48  Wayne
Yeah, its a really good
34:48
festival. But we have seen
34:50
people like john Garcia that
34:53  Trev
is a big, big influence.
34:53
For me. It was a massive
34:55
influence. For me when I was
34:55
singing in the two bands,
34:57
especially the second band. I
34:57
really thought I was JOHN Garcia
35:00
got it and I did look like the
35:00
dude
35:03  Wayne
that I think a few people
35:03
think theyre john Garcia don't
35:05
know trooper all they do is they
35:05
say that john Wright is seen as
35:08
a god.
35:21  Trev
was that fu man chu coming
35:21
in
35:23  Wayne
I wish I was that good
35:23
that I could queue up music
35:27
we are a podcast that don't edit
35:27
out the technical issues,
35:30
everyone
35:32
could even get the name of the
35:32
podcast right at the start. So,
35:34
you know,
35:40
me being a dumbass. That's all
35:40
it is. I think that brings us
35:44
nicely nicely up to the summary
35:44
trev. So I think yeah, go
36:00
So to summarize, exactly,
36:00
there's about the same level
36:06
be another episode
36:08
So yeah, to summarize trev. I
36:08
mean, this is our opinion. And
36:11
you know what, we know what's
36:11
not cool? I think you've summed
36:14
up already dancing around when
36:14
you're in your 50s to Little Mix
36:18
or linkin park?
36:22  Trev
party with your little
36:22
niece Yeah, that's cool. No,
36:25
that's
36:28
great. Nice. Yeah, that's sweet.
36:28
Yeah, that is sweet. But if
36:32
honestly, you don't want to be
36:32
download taking yourself
36:35
seriously. Yeah, it's not good.
36:35
Music doesn't matter. Music is
36:40
cool full stop. Because it's a
36:40
way of expression. In Motion,
36:44
everything. It'll always be
36:44
called music. But I think
36:47
sometimes how old you are with
36:47
the music you're listening to. I
36:51
know. People go and see this
36:51
steps reunion. And it's probably
36:54
quite a laugh. But it's me
36:54
selling my tickets now and stop.
36:59
Stop how
37:01
is it really
37:04
Let's be honest.
37:05  Wayne
Let's just move with the
37:05
times. Yeah,
37:06  Trev
yes. Yeah. And the same
37:06
with bands. Where do you see? I
37:13
bet are going to say I was going
37:13
to mention a name of a great
37:17
lead singer, who is in one band
37:17
I absolutely love. Now, but
37:22
again, it's the same as bands
37:22
wearing certain stuff on stage.
37:26
Yeah. So Oh, come on. Let's
37:26
really
37:30
buy Oh, I wont mention Paul
37:30
Rogers
37:33  Wayne
no dont mention him Trev
37:36  Trev
the whole bling thing. One
37:36
of the funniest things very
37:39
quickly before we go in the
37:39
summary. I went to see
37:43
Whitesnake, yeah. And David
37:43
Coverdale who dont get me wrong
37:46
it looks incredible. His hair is
37:46
immaculate still. And he said to
37:50
the crowd, he said,
37:52
you know, you've been with us
37:52
all these years. And here's
37:54
another 20 and a bloke behind
37:54
the show. He said, Get stuffed
37:58
Dave, you'll be 85 then, which
37:58
was quite funny. Last year on
38:02
our level, they hope they
38:02
listening to this podcast
38:06
is very funny.
38:08  Wayne
I think you've summed it
38:08
up nicely.
38:10  Trev
Yeah, basically what I
38:10
mean it's like,
38:13
oh, means, I love what you love.
38:13
But music wise, be very
38:17
discreet. If its not cool
38:19
Yeah, you don't? Cuz Yeah,
38:19
exactly. It's where your music
38:23
taste on your sleeve. But don't
38:23
go around in a little minx t
38:27
shirt.
