Geek Pop Podcast – September 2011 (Neutrino Special!)

Andrew Pontzen

Time for some topical science-based music on the podcast. This is a special show to coincide with the news that neutrinos *might* be able to travel faster than light, and therefore some of Einstein’s theories *might* have been a bit wrong, and therefore time travel *might* be possible… Anyway, thanks to Andrew Pontzen, Geek Pop 2011 alumnus, for making that into a song and sending us a live recording of it. We were so pleased, we had to tell you all straight away.

Don’t forget that next month’s show is MONSTER themed. Send your song suggestions to crew@geekpop.co.uk

P.S. Sorry for any sound quirks – it was all a bit ad hoc and the usual equipment was on loan…

Geek Pop Podcast – September 2011

Johnny Chemist

Everything seems to be wildly out of place this month, what with oranges in ovens, universes in cornflake boxes and POETRY sneaking into our music podcast… Oh and can anyone tell us whether Einstein once turned down the presidency of Israel? WHAT? It seems like we’ve come back from Green Man Festival and completely lost the plot. But while we were there we did record a lovely little live session with Johnny & the Chemists on Green Man FM. The full length version, including TWO whole songs is on our live sessions page. And you can listen to Jim’s radio show in its entirety (including some Geek Pop classics) on the Green Man FM Mixcloud channel.

Don’t forget to vote in the Geek Poll (below) and send your suggestions for next month’s MONSTER themed podcast to crew@geekpop.co.uk

There are full-length versions of some of this month’s songs on Spotify. The uber-list of all the songs we’ve ever played on the podcast is here. (Or about three quarters of them, because sometimes we get quite obscure). Download links for iTunes below:

LIVE SESSION: American Now – Johnny & the Chemists (full two-song session here)
