In this episode, I also discussed the work of Dr. James Riley, an old supervisor of mine, and mentioned his talk, The Bad Trip: Film, Counterculture, and the Death of the Sixities. You can find that talk here, and check out his blog, Residual Noise, here.
Episode four – ‘The Hacienda must be built.‘ part 1
In this episode, after the previous week’s discussion of his research, Dr. James Riley joined me on the show for a discussion about ‘The Hacienda’ club in Manchester. Links to his blog Residual Noise can be found above under ‘Episode Three’.
Episode five – ‘The Hacienda must be built.‘ part 2
Episode six – ‘Painting the festival space…‘
Episode seven – ‘My mind on my money and my money on my mind?’
In this episode, I was joined by Alfie Lambert, who joined me for a discussion about hip-hop and the drug culture. The discussion covered topics including the parallels between the ‘legitimate’ practices of American business and ‘illegitimate’ business practices of the drug culture, and hints at an attempt to rebalance a racially skewed economic playing field.
Episode eight – ‘Hallucination Generation’
