FILM TAPE NAME AND QUESTIONS FOR PADDY CONSIDINE
How are you? I am fine. Saw the Pixies last night so 50% of my hearing has gone and may never return. It wasn't so much Loud Quiet Loud as LOUD! LOUD! LOUD! Amazingly fun though, singing along with every song and seeing them all getting on really well and even recreating the bits of studio dialogue on Surfer Rosa at one stage. A great night.
So anyway, it's that time again and it's a big one this week because we have a bona fide film titan in the form of Paddy Considine as our guest. If you've seen Dead Man's Shoes or A Room For Romeo Brass both directed by his friend, the brilliant Shane Meadows then you'll know that Paddy is a force of nature on screen and is never less than excellent in whatever role he plays. He's also obsessed with American indie kings Guided By Voices and the solo work of lead singer Robert Pollard so I expect he'll be bringing along some good stuff from his GBV locker.
As far as the theme of the tape goes, I'm thinking the music should be film related with particular emphasis on music by actors. Paddy himself has a band (Riding The Low) and having seen them live I can assure you that it's no Russell Crowe/Steven Segal/Bruce Willis cringefest but inevitably any actor who turns their hand to music will be seen as part of that somewhat stinky pantheon. Any suggestions for good or very bad music by actors welcome, and if you think there's a film related song or piece of music we should consider too, let us know. As if all that wasn't enough to be asking you, there is of course the all important tape name to consider. Currently the working title is Act Naturally but I'm sure you chaps can do better than that!
We're recording the show this Tuesday 8th so if you have please questions, suggestions or titles, please submit them below before then.
