The Show: The Tranquillusionist

We didn’t completely do it justice but on today’s show we wanted to highlight Helen Zaltzman’s rebranding of her Allusionist podcast as the Tranquillusionist.

Designed to soothe rather than provoke, the shows so far include a monologue of punchlines to well known jokes and another composed of the lyrics to “Imagine” but deconstructed in backwards alphabetical order.

Our favourite though is the reading of a list of the Westminster Kennel Club Best In Show winners from 1907 all the way through to this year. Much respect to Warren Remedy, the only dog to have won Westminster three years in a row.

And on with the show…

The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.
