BURN THE PLACE YOU HIDE (St Thomas documentary)
I'm sure you're not short of recommendations for autobiographies, but one of my favourites is '45' by Bill Drummond (KLF). The story of his plan to build a cube of Tennant’s Super and distribute it to the audience of a screening of the £1 million burning film, which was to be projected onto the side of a multi-storey car park, is alone worth the entry price. A genius.
These top-level ramble-chats keep on coming! Going to check out that Al Kooper book and St Thomas documentary now, thanks for the recommendations.
The jingle about backing your car into another car and getting angry is so funny. I love all of the podcast stuff though to be honest! But that one seriously made me chuckle. Thanks for all the laughs!
THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING ALL THIS INFORMATION. I DON'T LIKE MAKING NOTES WHILE LISTENING, IT PREVENTS GIGGLING.
Quick comment to let you know I love the podcast, always a highlight when I see it plop into my itunes feed.
Louis is a great guest and I think Louis doing Baccara's I love to boogie must be my favourite podcast moment ever.
