Podrophenia - break ups, shake up & make ups


The latest Podrophenia is up for grabs - and as it's the end of The Ends we're doing 'break ups, shake up & make ups' - with Joe Blamey from The Ends giving us the news on the band's new EP and their final gig.

Roll-out wise, there's cold bands, and some Trump-thumping with who said it - Partridge or Trump, fake music news and alternative rock 'n' pop facts... And possibly the worst album cover in history from a band who really should know better - all hereabouts and all free...

In the later sixties. Doug Kaye worked at his brother's Brook Street restaurant Mr Love - where Jimi Hendrix rented a small apartment above the shop, Doug was also the resident DJ at Mr Love and is featured in the recreation of Jimi's flat, and in the book Hendrix at Home.
