The Afterword Podcast

This is GLK London calling the audio companion to

The sound of the waifs and strays of the Word magazine blog (RIP), musing along the byways of popular culture. We blather, you listen — that’s the deal.

Twang gathers Tiggerlion, Nigel T, Dai and occasional guest Simon for a discussion on the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” and its recent remix/rerelease.  A stimulating discussion ensues which has to be brutally cut short at 1hr 30m, lovingly represented here in stereo (the mono remix will be available shortly from specialist web shops).  We cover the history of the album, where it fits in the Beatles universe, songwriting, recording, remix approaches… A wide spread of opinions are aired, context and judgement applied and in the end most of the team admit they’d buy it whatever it was like.  Advice is offered for potential purchasers on the different formats available and Twang confesses it doesn’t sound much different to the 2009 remaster to him.
