#33 – Gruff Rhys, Conquering Animal Sound, Fostercare, Daedelus

This week’s podcast is possibly the first that includes a member of the Hitler Youth singing us a song. The Pope was a member too, so the failure of Nazism despite having God on their side possibly says plenty about the power of God, unless he was working it from the inside? Where were we? Ah yes, new releases this week from Trunk records, two Welsh pop greats in Euros Childs and Gruff Rhys, new label 100% Silk with The Deeep and much more. Tracks from Fostercare, Daedelus and a bizarre cover of People are Strange keep this week’s IMP ticking over superlatively…
