It's our 100th episode!! Which is mad enough in itself so we figured we should mark the occasion with a bonus episode on a true classic album of the 90s, Nine Inch Nails 'The Downward Spiral'. Dave came into this one already a huge fan of the record but Krister was brand new to a lot of it. Along the way we have a few clips from some old friends and former guests such as Darren from our Def Leppard episode, Cliff from the Devil Times Five horror movie podcast, Niall from The Zeroes podcast, Stephen Hill from Trve.Cvlt.Pop (and our Chaka Demus & Pliers episode where he truly shone) and Si Sharp from Beat Rehab/Nautilus Gin and other general music nerdery. Huge thanks to all of them. Hope you enjoy this episode and thanks to everyone who has listened to any of the previous 99 shows or got in contact with some pithy comments or simply liked one of our shit joke posts on social media. You're the best.
Like a bit of existential misery and complaining with your indie guitar music, do you? Well what a lucky day you're about to have being able to hear us talk about Morrissey's fourth solo album 'Vauxhall And I' from March 1994. Both of us love some Smiths tunes but don't really know any of Moz's solo stuff so we're not sure what this is going to be like going in. But it's a bumper time period for other releases as well so we get to talk about bands like Nailbomb, David Holmes and Pantera among many, many others. Oh, and fucking Doop.  As always check out the companion playlist for this episode with all of the songs we talk about included on it and please feel free to get in contact if you fancy - you can get do so via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. And you can catch up with our ongoing playlist made up of songs from all of the albums we've covered so far right here.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why did two Enigma albums have to get to number one meaning we are duty bound to listen to them? 1994 continues its rollercoaster up and down ride with 'The Cross Of Changes', the second album from new age bastards Enigma. Thankfully we are able to talk about other music that was happening at the time as well such as Therapy, Beck and Low among many others.  As always check out the companion playlist for this episode with all of the songs we talk about included on it and please feel free to get in contact if you fancy - you can do so via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. And you can catch up with our ongoing playlist made up of songs from all of the albums we've covered so far right here.
After last episode's adventure into pop-dancehall we're doing a pretty extreme 180 into the world of Tori Amos and her second solo album 'Under The Pink' from February 1994. Will Dave decide that these songs could also be improved with some toasting from the man Chaka D? We shall find out. We also managed to squeeze in some chat about Reel II Reel ft. The Mad Stuntman, Deep Forest (at which point Krister manages to get Star Trek very wrong) and we both try for the life of us to remember who Wendy Moten is and why she had a top ten single. The episode also features various contributions from Niall of The Zeroes Podcast (whose 1990 Music episode we managed to squeeze ourselves onto) so thank you to him. As always check out the companion playlist for this episode with all of the songs we talk about included on it and please feel free to get in contact if you fancy - you can get do so via our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

The second, and concluding, rundown of our own personal favourite albums from 1993 to round off Season Four with a festive bang. We also managed to rope in some fellow nerds from other podcasts to drop in with their choices so you'll find some of those clips peppered throughout the show. Make sure you listen after the closing credits to hear Steve and Sam from True Cult Pop's FULL chat that they sent over by the way as opposed to the hastily-edited-for-time-constraints version that is in the main episode. Massive thanks as well to Gaz Jones from Track One, Side One, Andrew Bird from A Funny Taste In Music and Cliff Smogo from Devil Times Five Horror Podcast for making time for us. The playlist that we made alongside these Best Of '93 shows can be found here with our picks of songs from each of the albums we talk about. If we didn't put whatever your choice of song would have been on there it's probably Dave's fault so get angry with him. You can get hold of either of us or just leave some feedback on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. So that's it for 1993 and Season Four - a season of highs and lows, from Nirvana to Cliff Richard and plenty in between. Thank you to everyone who listened and we'll be back before long with a journey through 1994!
On our journey through the number one albums of 1993 we got the chance occasionally to chat about some other records that came out during the year which we were particular fans of and this is our end of season opportunity to expand on those and make a list of our personal top tens. We've split it over two episodes so this is part one, kind of the lower end of our lists. Check it out and see if you agree with our opinions - feel free to let us know on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. We're compiling a playlist of choice songs from all of the albums we talk about as well which can be found on our Spotify.  Part two coming in a couple of days!
It's time for the first of our End-Of-Season-Four bonus episodes and we're starting with a chat about our favourite hip hop albums that came out during 1993. You can hear selections from all of our picks (except for Gunshot which isn't on Spotify so go and listen to it on YouTube instead) on our companion playlist.  Feel free to get in contact with what your own choices would have been, what did we totally miss out? Also please do let us know what your overall top five or top ten albums of 1993 would be as well as we'll be doing our own selection in the next episode and would love to hear your suggestions. Email us at pclmusicpodcast@gmail.com or stick it on our Twitter or Facebook page, whatever is easiest. Cheers!
Well lookee here - we started this whole podcast about four years ago with a Phil Collins album and here he is again like a bald-headed returning character in the soap opera that is Pop Collaborate & Listen. Can this album live up to the heady heights of his 1990 effort 'But Seriously'? Probably not to be honest. But at least in this episode you also get to hear us chat about MC Ren and Guns & Roses, and you can hear Dave sing along to quite a bit of Onyx. Consider yourselves warned. We also mention a few links that we recommend checking out: Dave's flashy new website where you can find his Edinburgh show ADHDave to watch for free on youtube; and Gaz Jones' music podcast Track1Side1.  As always come and say hello on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where we always post terrible jokes about the most recent album we've done so you can give us grief on there. And check out our ongoing Spotify compilation playlist featuring "the best" songs from every single number one album we've done to date. Thanks as always to everyone who has given us the price of a pint on our paypal or even just spread the word and told some friends about our show - it warms our hearts every time we get mentioned in a Twitter thread asking what podcasts people are listening to or would recommend to others. Until next time!
We're back with a bonafide POP monster in the form of Take That's second album 'Everything Changes' from October of 1993. Quite simply one of the biggest boy bands of the decade and indeed of all time with their breakthrough record - but does it stand up to a fresh listen nearly thirty years down the line? As well as discussing which of the Take That boys is simply dreamy we are able to discuss some other acts and records from the time such as Eazy E, Pearl Jam and the one and only Shaquille O'Neal. We also mention a few links that we recommend checking out: Dave's flashy new website where you can find his Edinburgh show ADHDave to watch for free; Stephen from Riot Act's new podcast Trve.Cvlt.Pop!; and Remfry from Riot Act's new one 3 Is The Magic Number.  As always come and say hello on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where we always post terrible jokes about the most recent album we've done so you can give us grief on there.

It turns out that this was the Pet Shop Boys' first, and only, number one album which was a surprise to both of us considering how big they were in the latter half of the 1980s but neither of us had actually heard a PSB's album in full before so we went into this with pretty high hopes that there would be some gems inside. Just how many gems we did uncover remains to be seen. But we also chatted about other classic acts such as Afghan Whigs, Duff McKagan and Dave gets to give us a very level-headed opinion on Damon Albarn and Blur. Fun times. You can hear the full Pet Shop Boys album as well as loads of the bands and songs we chat about on this episode's companion Spotify playlist.

We've been looking forward to this one for a while - if you've already heard our episode on Nevermind then you'll know we're fans of Nirvana anyway and it was a treat to go back and revisit this album in full. Be prepared for a lot of shameless gushing from some fanboys. But you can also hear us gush about acts like Souls of Mischief, Sepultura and Prince among others. Playlist of everything we chat about on this episode can be found here.

We are back after a longer than anticipated break so thank you for sticking with us (or thank you for just joining us if you're a new listener - you're very welcome), we reckon you're going to enjoy this episode a lot. We managed to bully Dave's wife Jenny into joining us to talk about Meat Loaf's massive 'Bat Out Of Hell II' album because when she was a child it was the only CD she owned and therefore thanks to the effects of Stockholm Syndrome she has some very fond memories of it. But how does she feel about it 30 years later? As well as discussing this veritable rock opera we manage to also touch upon things like Stone Temple Pilots, Paul Weller and whether or not Culture Beat should have had a second career as a male stripper called Mr Vein.

We confess right at the start of this one that we were not fans of Ms Carey in the early 90s but tried to keep an open mind going into the episode. And it's fair to say that more than once we were very pleasantly surprised; consider some of those words completely eaten. Alongside singing along to some massive power ballads we take the opportunity to talk about other acts such as The Wildhearts, Stone Temple Pilots and The Breeders among others. Check out all of our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), our Spotify playlist for this episode and our ongoing Podcast Playlist featuring hand-picked songs from each number one album we've talked about so far. 
We've got halfway through the number one albums of 1993 and have come across this beast which was at the top spot for seven weeks that summer. Is that because it's totally amazing and the British public were right to keep on buying it? Or is it because they did an Elvis cover that was lightweight enough to get on the radio constantly? It's a mystery. Thankfully alongside having to discuss this record we get to talk about other acts such as Clutch, Cypress Hill and, er, Snow. We'd also like to take the opportunity to plug some of our previous podcast guests who have new podcasts out themselves at the minute: Sean Mcloughlin who joined us for our ABBA special has a new one up and running with fellow comedian Jonny Pelham called Failing Better and their guest on the current episode is Ed Gamble; and Rob Mulholland who joined us for our Hip Hop in 1991 special is going great guns with his new podcast Dead Men Talking alongside co-host Freddy Quinne (warning - this one is not for the easily offended). So do go and check them out if they sound up your street.
What DO you do after releasing 'Achtung Baby' and already going off piste from what you're known for? Well, if you're U2 in 1993 then the answer is you go even more experimental and try new things to see what works.  For this episode we have a very special guest in the form of Stephen Hill from Metal Hammer and the Riot Act podcast who is probably the biggest U2 fan we know and agreed to come on and tell us why we're wrong if we say we don't like one of their songs. It was a real treat for us to have this chat with him - go and follow him on Twitter so you can read some of the articles he writes about bands like Tool and Radiohead and make sure you check out the Riot Act Podcast itself to keep yourself up to date with all the new releases worth knowing about. Oh, and most importantly you can hear the Broken Records podcast that they do as well where they try and seek out the worst albums ever made. At least we have an excuse for listening to some of the rubbish we have to do for this podcast. They're doing it for fun. As well as talking about U2 on this episode we also squeeze in some chat about bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, and, er, Spin Doctors. July 1993 was a wild time. You'll find links to all our social media and spotify playlists etc on our website www.pclpodcast.com
Back with a new episode about everyone's favourite Acid Jazz hat-botherer and his band Jamiroquai and for this one we have drafted in the absolutely wonderful comedian Phil Lucas to help us out as he is a massive fan of the band and promised us he wouldn't fall out with us too much if we were nasty about Jay Kay during the recording. If you haven't already heard the podcast that Phil Lucas produced with the much-missed Phil Jerrod, Crash Bang Wallop, then we cannot recommend it enough if you like laughing until you're sore. Along the way in this episode we also talk about the likes of Chaka Demus & Pliers, House of Love and Phil introduces us to the wonders of fake porno soundtrack composer Klaus Harmony. Also during our conversation we refer to a couple of video clips which we promised to link and so here they are: A truly horrifying 'Stars In Their Eyes'-style show featuring a white woman becoming Stevie Wonder; and The Fast Show's very thinly veiled pisstake of Jamiroquai. As always, please follow us on social media if you're not already, all the links are on our website. And tell your mates how good we are, go on. Do us a favour.
We knew it was coming, it was inescapable. We weren't looking forward to it because surely we'll run out of things to say about what is probably going to be the same song 14 times in a row? Well it turns out we didn't run out of things to say and despite the source material this one turned out pretty well if we do say so ourselves. Inbetween marvelling at Ray Slijngaard's quite astonishing rapping we take the opportunity to chat about some other bands like Gunshot, Fugazi and the Spin Doctors. As always please do give us a follow on our social media platforms and why not go and give us a nice rating over on Spotify now that you're able to while you're checking out this episode's companion playlist and our ongoing and sprawling playlist of songs from each album that we do an episode on. Cheers!
A Very PCL Christmas!

Happy Christmas! Although it's all still a bit weird and no one knows what's going to happen in the next few weeks we hope that you're all having as lovely a time as you can under the circumstances. We decided to get together for a short bonus episode and talk some rubbish about Christmas in general, Christmas music, films etc etc and obviously Krister brought along some of the finest festive jokes known to mankind which pleased Dave no end as you'll hear throughout. We'll be back with another proper episode before long but in the meantime have a glass of eggnog and think of us. Cheers!
Almost halfway through 1993 now and after a few episodes of more leftfield (let's just forget that we ever talked about Cliff Richard) records we've come to a big pop album in the shape of 'janet.' by Janet Jackson. Neither of us have ever heard the full album before but since seven of the songs were released as singles surely we must know quite a lot of it already, right? Right? Along the way we also discuss things like Anthrax, Snow and Guru's Jazzamatazz. Nice. Do check out our social media platforms and have a listen to this episode's companion playlist with all of the Janet album as well as the other tunes that we talk about and play as well. And you can hear our ongoing Spotify playlist made up of our favourite tunes from each episode to date here.
Join us in this episode for a look at one of the most influential bands of the 80s and their only album from the 90s. After the whole Manchester scene had exploded around them, with baggy and shoegaze coming to the fore and then fading out again, with their label Factory Records and their club The Hacienda becoming the absolute epitomes of cool, could New Order find their place in a new decade? Along the way we also chat about things like Credit To The Nation, Rancid and Terrorvision to name but a few. Hope you enjoy this episode and don't forget to check out our ongoing Spotify playlist which features at least one song from every number one album we've done so far.
