Podcast :: Under The Bridge #11: Bum Tish Skillz

“Is it gay if you have a dream about sucking yourself off, but you don’t cum?” – Ian Critchley

With Ian back from his holidays and a busy week ahead of us, we got around to recording episode 11 of Under The Bridge. This week we were joined by our favorite ex-pat Kris Smith to let you know what was going on in the world of music. Prepare for laughs as we discuss cheese rolling in Portsmouth, Blink-182’s UK tour and Sweeden’s population of cats. Kris tried to talk about John Coltrane, but we talked over him. Shame.

This week our music comes from Frank Turner — ‘St. Christopher Is Coming Home’, ‘I Still Believe’, ‘Try This At Home’, ‘The Ballad Of Me & My Friends’

Podcast :: Under The Bridge #10: “Duke I is nou ervo .-“

“Suffolk can’t have a lord, it doesn’t even have a post office” – Ian Critchley

No, you’re not seeing things. This is another episode of Under The Bridge. We’ve not taken the podcast weekly, it’s just Ian (a.k.a. Jesus King Of The Gods) is in Spain and wouldn’t be able to record next week, as planned. Rather than have you lot stew for a week whilst he’s getting all tantastic, we recorded a week early. I can hear you all saying “aww, bless” in unison now.

Anyway, this week it’s not just us two providing you with a dose of bullshit. We’ve also got, Editor In Chief of Unrated Music, Jeff Clemens on the show. He chimes in on this week’s most pressing issues, whilst adding a touch of Canadian class to proceedings. On the cards for this episode: Michael Jackson’s posthumous album, more on Kanye West being his arrogant self and we talk about Lord Dani Filth…yes, Lord.

Ian and Jamie Lenman (formerly of Reuben)

“I could go for a lefty, but that’s just messy” – Ian Critchley

After another ‘lost episode’ (one that should have featured guests), here’s episode 9 of Under The Bridge. This week we had a bit of a Reuben theme to our episode. For the ill informed, Reuben was an alternative rock band from Surrey that split up in 2008. There’s a campaign to get their song ‘Christmas Is Awesome’ to the top of the charts this Christmas and we’re fully behind that. Also this week: We announce a new ‘worlds nicest man’, we tell you why NATO canceled an Arcade Fire gig and tell you about a bunch of cool bands touring the US.

Podcast :: Under The Bridge – Episode 8: Pegwarmers

“Ray Charles is what you need to set the mood…Then you slap on your Hot Water Music and just pound the crap out of her.” – Ian Critchley

We’re back again to bring you an eighth dose of Under The Bridge goodness. It’s as crude and laughter-filled as usual, but without Barlow’s Vader-esque breathing. There’s a lot of news in there and we also had a bit of a chat with Well Wisher. All in all, we have an awesome show for you.

This week we chatted about some of the music industry’s more arrogant folks. Kanye west was compared to Morrissey after an outburst about suicide, Barlow’s gone through one of his ‘phases’ again and we don’t fail to bring the laughs with news on Justin Bieber’s latest gaff.

This week’s music was provided by Well Wisher:

  • Pegwarmers
  • Fill Me, Filmy
  • Tops Off
  • White Krunk

Well Wisher Interview


Breaking News: Morrissey Says Something Nice!

  • Hails, Doll & The Kicks singer, Hannah Scanlon “the best british singer in years”
  • “When I first saw Doll & The Kicks live, I could not, even with the best will in the world, look away,” explained Morrissey. “I can’t be reasoned with where Hannah is concerned – she is the best British singer of recent years. She will sing an entire song without any breathing lulls, and the boys seal her confidence brilliantly. How they work off each other is the most any group could give; the soft tones as arresting as the muscular tones. They certainly deserve far more serious treatment than they have received.”
  • “The fact that they remain unsigned is bizarre beyond belief, but insofar as I can tell, the entire point of the X Factor culture is to starve genuine music out of existence – whether that be Doll & The Kicks, or, for that matter, me,” he noted. “What this means, I think, is that, these days, being blacklisted from the game is a compliment, and you can’t continue to pledge allegiance to the world of music if it doesn’t pledge allegiance to you.”
  • Hannah said she was honored.

Jerry Lee Lewis writing autobiography

  • Plans to release it in 2012
  • He says: “I have spent my life listening to those who know so little say so much about me and my life. I am ready to say a whole lot about why I lived my life the way I did. People can read it, burn it, or never give it another thought. Either way the truth is about to be told, and I’m the only man still standing who can touch it.”

Culture Club to reform in 2012

  • 30th anniversary tour
  • Boy George says: “We’re definitely doing it, in 2012. Our D-Day is April 30, which is the same day as our first-ever single release, “White Boy”… it’s going to be great fun. If we don’t do it now we’ll do it when we’re 60, which will be really tragic.”
  • Last played in 2002 for their 20th anniversary

Kanye West Suicided and has album cover banned

  • Told the audience watching his film “Runnaway” he had considered killing himself.
  • Described himself as a pop icon and a “solider for culture”. Before saying: “I will not give up on life again.”

Justin Beiber Bullied by 12-year old.

  • 12-year old boy claims the ‘singer’ hit him during a game of laser tag in Toronto, Canada
  • The kid apparently cornered him, shooting him repeatedly, before Bieber said enough was enough. The kid responded: That’s enough.” The little kid then asked, “What are you gonna do about it, faggot?”
  • Bieber pushed the kid’s hand away, and now the family are suing him for assault.

Podcast :: Under The Bridge – Episode 5: Lovely, Grovelly, Gravelly Groans

© Matt Volp 2010

“The Blackout are turd…they’ve got, like, two singers and they shouldn’t even have one” – Ian Critchley

Anthony was a little under the weather this week. His sore throat and bastardly, nature combined with a love for The Lawrence Arms, made ‘Lovely, Grovelly, Gravelly Groans’ the perfect subtitle for episode 5. This week we discuss music videogames and what we think of them, our disdain for festivals, how Tupac, Biggie, Elvis and Kurt Cobain are all living on the island from LOST (complete with polar bear!), John Berna brings us more words of widsom and it’s as unsavory as ever. Lovely!

This week’s music is a little different to the usual fare we use as jingles. The soothing tones of the Vitamin String Quartet split up our segments this week, but can you guess which songs they’re playing? All will be revealed at the end of the show. So, go on, have a listen! (The list is also available at the end of the show notes and in the description on iTunes, if you want to cheat).

So we’re back with a third episode. This week we talk even more shit, but it’s less drunken.

Podcast :: Under The Bridge – Episode 2: Real Idiots Caught On iTunes

“If You Don’t Like James Brown, You Should Fuck Off” – Ian Critchley

We’re back for a second episode. That’s right, we didn’t get canceled and Paul still hasn’t chucked us so all is well. This week we’re ‘Real Idiots Caught On iTunes’. We got some beers and a better set up and hopefully this is a little bit more listenable than it’s predecessor.

We’ve tried to tidy up the show a little bit more. We couldn’t help, but give a few more mentions of Frank Turner. This episode was really all about Fake Problems. The, Florida-based, indie-punk foursome provided us with music for this week and we talked up their new album, Real Ghosts Caught On Tape, and their support slot with Gaslight Anthem on their US tour. We also try and find out which new/recent artists we’ll be listening to in 50 years time and discuss the niceness of, Against Me! frontman, Tom Gabel.

We’ve also got a new segment that comes courtesy of, tour manager extraordinaire, John Berna. He’s provided us with some ‘Words Of Wisdom’. Under The Bridge is a podcast you can live your life by. Fact!

Prepare to listen to us getting drunk. Also: We mean “stalk” in the nicest possible, non-creepy, way.

Disclaimer: Apologies to anyone offended by this episode of Under The Bridge (especially you, Chris Farren). Everything said was said in jest and is not meant to be taken seriously. I mean, when do you ever take us seriously and, honestly, why should you? We’ll try and curb the drunkeness, but it’s highly unlikely this show would exist without the help of a few Scrumpy Jack’s. – Barlow x

Podcast :: Under The Bridge – Episode 1: Something To Do With Trolls

First of all, we’d like to appologise to Paul Tyers for this podcast being around two months late. We originally planned to do this on a train to/from Leeds on May 5th, but we’ve only just gotten around to doing it.

‘Under The Bridge’ is a music podcast hosted by us two – Anthony Barlow & Ian Critchley – in which we chat bollocks about music for a while, tell some stories, give out some recommendations and promote some up and coming new bands. This week we have an interview with, Far frontman, Jonah Mantranga as our “main topic”. We also discuss the merits of the film ‘Riding In Vans With Boys’. how good Crazy Arm are and stalking Frank Turner.
