Episode 18 – Album Closers

The icing on the cake, the cherry on top, the jewel in the crown – final flourishes have long been held to be the very best things that humanity can experience.

This week we ask the question “are albums finished in the same way as cakes or crowns, with the best ingredient reserved until the finishing touch?” The short answer is no – anyone who argues that the best track on Revolver is “Tomorrow Never Knows” is clearly selling something and is to be distrusted. However, if we relied on the short answer here at No Stairway, you, Dear Listener, would be denied the glorious waffle of three supposedly adult middle-aged men prattling on for what seems like hours about the final track on the eponymous album by supposedly Korea’s finest post-rock folk-metal band.

Also in this epic episode Tim adds to his ever-growing list of songwriters he hates because of head and/or hair shape, Carl fetishises Patrick Swayze’s pubic hair (yet again) and Bill calls Carl “ghetto” for the first and perhaps only time in his life.

  1. Really enjoyed this one! Although, it was trickier than I first thought due to having to keep the playlist “flow” going…and to add some variety along the way.
