  • Episode 13: How Does it Feel by Slade

    Episode 13: How Does it Feel by Slade

    Our takes The Inspiration: How Does it Feel? by Slade by Frosty 1973 For this episode we’ve chosen Slade’s classic 1975 single How Does it Feel. This song, which may not be representative of most people’s perception of Slade, combines Jim Leas poignant music with Noddy Holder’s simple melancholic words. It wasn’t a huge hit […]

  • Episode 11: I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A Bread by The Singing Postman

    Episode 11: I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A Bread by The Singing Postman

    Our takes: The Inspiration: “I Can’t Git A Nice Loaf A’ Bread” by The Singing Postman by TheParsnip It’s often the case with these Frozen veg episodes that a spur of the moment choice of some favourite remembered song leads to a deeper appreciation of the subject. It’s also true that surprisingly often serendipity strikes and […]

  • Episode 8: Travel as Equals or Not at All by Joseph Arthur

    Episode 8: Travel as Equals or Not at All by Joseph Arthur

    Our takes on the track: Read about Frosty1973’s take and The Parsnip’s take. The Inspiration by Frosty1973 I first discovered Joseph Arthur in the Mike Lloyds Megastore sale in 1997. I’d seen something on TV about him signing to Peter Gabriel’s Realworld label and enlisting Brian Eno on backing vocals.  So when I saw his debut album, […]

  • Episode 5: And So To F… by Brand X

    Episode 5: And So To F… by Brand X

    Our takes: The Inspiration by Chris Frost After the last episode, the Parsnip’s choice, turned out be quite a demanding affair I thought I’d go for a much easier choice where we didn’t have to worry about vocals and just did something instrumental.  Great idea I thought and started trawling through possible options on my […]

  • Episode Four: Move Closer by Phyllis Nelson

    Episode Four: Move Closer by Phyllis Nelson

    Our Takes The Inspiration by TheParsnip There has been quite a gap since the last episode and that’s down to me, I’m afraid. I’ve had a total mental block with this tune. Let me take you back to 1985. Picture the scene. The family is on holiday, probably in the south west of the UK. […]

  • Episode Two: Welcome To The Jungle by Guns n’ Roses

    Episode Two: Welcome To The Jungle by Guns n’ Roses

    Our Takes The Inspiration By TheParsnip In this second episode, fresh out of the freezer comes another classic. Guns n’ Roses is another band with a slinky link to Stoke-on-Trent. Slash, erstwhile guitarist of the band, spent a few of his formative years in Stoke, thus seeding a host of apocryphal tales regarding where he […]
