- Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5 "THE MESSAGE" Pt. 2
PART 2. The jaunt into Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five's The Message continues as the lads explore an urban hell-scape that is regrettably perennially and universally familiar... there is about half the song to go. Will the lads finally be pushed over the edge? and most importantly, will the sad sad tale of THE MESSAGE make it into the Lyrical Time Capsule?

- NIRVANA: Smells Like Teen Spirit - Part 2
Hello hello... how low? The dharmic journey continues in Part 2 of this autopsy of the iconic breakout hit from 90's doom merchants, Nirvana. Rejoin Ming and Hugo as they take on this gargantuan piece of death-pop, and analyse its riddle-some lyrics line by line. As a couple of nineties gents, our two hosts have quite the personal history with this song... so will Hugo ever shut up about Buddhism and let Ming get his tale out? and most importantly, will voice of a lost generation, Kurt Cobain, earn a hallowed place in the... Lyrical... Time... Capsule? Turn out the lights, Tune out, and have a taste. Yay?

- NIRVANA: Smells Like Teen Spirit - Part 1
Take a lyrical spin on the wheel of Samsara, as Ming and Hugo forensically examine this slab of nihilistic doom from Generation X's ur-rockband, the poetically named Nirvana. This quarter, the lads take on the challenge of deciphering the eldritch riddles of Kurt Cobain's lyrics before the lights go out. What is he trying to say? is the obfuscation all part of some grand point he's making? This is part 1, teen friends...

- Britney Spears - …Baby One More Time
Join Ming and Hugo as they excavate a megalith of Americano-Swedish pop, Britney's punch-in-the-face of a debut track, "ELLIPSIS... Baby one more time." What on earth kind of relationship is this little ditty describing? Why did the title of this *hit* get edited? Why the hell is Hugo talking about Jung all of a sudden? And, most importantly, will Britney (and Max Martin) earn a place in the Lyrical... Time... Capsule?

- Subterranean Homesick Blues - part 2
Join Ming and Hugo as they attempt to navigate their way out of the subterranean lyrical cave they have dug for themselves. In this chapter, the 2nd half of Bob Dylan's 2.5 minute spellunking poem is dissected in gory detail. He casts his very critical and sardonic eye over 60's suburban existence, and so do our venerable hosts. What does this slice of beat poet baby boomer rebellion look like now, from the vantage point of late-2021? And will the greatest poet of 20th Century music make it into the Lyrical Time Capsule? Enter this veritable Hades of the podcasting underworld to find out...

- Subterranean Homesick Blues - part 1
Ming and Hugo head deep underground into a realm of 1960's anti-establishment folk Americana - a realm far larger than they ever possibly imagined. A veritable Plato's cave filled with dealers, wheelers, corrupt cops, Jonny and Maggie getting up to no good, and a surprisingly redundant weather-man. It's awfully roomy down there, and this tour of a breezy 2 minute song winds up taking so long, it needs to be broken into two parts. Turn on, tune in and head into the loamy substructure. You'll feel right at home. Good luck, listener (singular form intentional)

- Spice Girls - Wannabe
Join Ming and Hugo as they take a journey through a minefield of topics including dating, monogamy, sex, sexy time preferences, slamming your body down and whining it all around, and a whole heck of a lot of zig-ah-zig-ah. Hugo throws himself on several grenades of potential cancellation, and Ming lets him, like a true bro. Oh, and somewhere along the way, they mention a little song by the Spice Girls called Wannabe

- God Save The Queen
Ming and Hugo take a promenade down the banks of the Thames and pontificate on Royalty, Fascism, Atomic weaponry and class struggle. Cargo cults make a dramatic cameo, alongside some British War Poets. What else would you expect in a casual chat about the Sex Pistols “God Save The Queen”. Will this snidely sneering poetic ditty make it into posterity? FInd out in this edition of Lyrical Time Capsule

- Bohemian Rhapsody
Episode 1: Bohemian Rhapsody.
Ming and Hugo take a deep dive into Justice, Nihilism, the book of Exodus, Angels Demons, Galileo, Figaro Magnifico... and occasionally discuss an obscure little song by a band called Queen along the way. Will the song make it into the Lyrical Time Capsule, or be consigned to the memory hole? Thunderbolts and Lightning very very frightening.
