Episode 98: The Underrated Beatles
A joke for Lord Ben: How many Beatles does it take to change a lightbulb? Just one (preferably Paul) holding the lightbulb still while the universe spins around him. The Lords examine Lord Ben’s hypothefact that The Beatles get no respect.

Episode 97: Ladies’ Night!
A decade plus after #MeToo four men discuss fave females, just as we realise gender is an outdated concept. Isn't it ironic? Nah, it a riot (grrrl). Among others, Miss Sharon Jones brings the soul, Siouxsie Sioux the stranger things, and Martha Wainwright reminds us all to treat our daughters with some serious respect!

Episode 96: Bizarro World – Pavement
In an unusual turn of events, Lord Kev jauntily turns his gaze away from the pavement while the other Lords schlep along it instead. They can’t quite come to grips with the bent bottle cap that is Stephen Malkmus’ voice but goodness knows they try.

Lord Kev's course concludes with his personal top tracks from the last 25 years and 250 albums by the esoteric post-punk band famously described as "always different, always the same".

Lord Ben drops another of his famed musical truth bombs claiming "There was only ever one punk band". The other lords grab their gas masks and take cover, scrambling for shreds of reason in a world gone mad.

The Lords are back to do a few more doughies in the Oz Music carpark. There are some heavyweights in this collection and the Lords ponder what makes an act truly Aussie: is it if you’re born here, move here, or just if you wear a pair of Stubbies now and then?

Episode 92: Cut It Out - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Episode 88: Best Drum Tracks 2
Strange times indeed! Back from iso, Lord Kev chooses an Album of the Week the others actually like, Brett counts in a second discussion on top drum tracks with a punk gem, Ben doesn't mention Ringo, and Lord Al, well, he was doing strange anyway – but are the others ready for a slab of gore grind?

Episode 85: Join the Dots 4
Strap yourself in, here comes Lord Al with his musical dots. He is the gatekeeper, the Wizard of Oz, he is that wee guy that worked for the Tyrell corporation.

Surely the lion, the tin man and Dorothy will all be ready with the three yellow bricks that lead directly from Deicide to Seal. Surely!

The Lords serve up another slice of the four-string motherfudging pie as they revisit the best basslines of all time. However, does a bass “presence” actually constitute a bassline? Tune in and judge for yourself.

Episode 83: Lord Al's Funeral/Tragic Tales of Life - Billie Holiday
'Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone ...' He's gone and life will never be the same. But how will we remember the paradox that was Lord Al? What songs say what mere words could never express.

Episode 82: Songs for Winter/Grease Monkey Music 6
With a blast of icy sub-tropical wind slamming the door shut, the Lords huddle around their microphones for warmth. Will the skies ever be clear again? With only their shared respect for each other to keep them warm, there are obviously grim weeks of privation ahead. Also: the grease monkeys delve into the natural world to do a final tune-up on the topic of samples.
