swifty fuckwits

On today's episode, we discussed childhood fears; ranging from hairdressers that cut off ears, to dentists who delight in inflicting pain. We also discussed Watership Down and its effect on our childhood minds, our disdain for health and safety regulations, and pondered the mystery of why rich people love golf.

We also speculated on the subjects of getting high on dentist's laughing gas, cinema advertisements and their prevalence for alcohol and automobiles, and whether or not the "jumper-over-the-shoulders" look was a look worth bringing back or not.

We also reviewed Holy Mountain's recent album launch at Mono, Aidan Moffat and HEALTH's collaborative art exhibition #UNRAVEL, as well as Howard Hawk's Only Angels Have Wings, and Charles Vidor's Gilda.

We also discussed our upcoming gig: Redwings, Hivver, and No Comet at Stereo, Glasgow, on 23 May. More information here.
