In this Episode Lol and Budgie talk to Dr. Jennifer Otter Bickerdike (Our Rock and Roll Confidante). With whom we discuss – (amongst many other wonderful things) ‘Pyramid Schemes, a Hooker for Jesus and the Church of Whatever.’
Jen Loves Us!
We are Nerds, Podcast virgins, we are old dogs for new
we have Budgie as Yenta – we have Lol in his pew
we have weddings in the desert – at the Church of Whatever,
Budgie Tambourines for Jesus – it’s a Hooker’s Endeavour.
Rock Star Cult!
Like a Hawk holding Rings from Monday ‘til Sunday
Every night is a Saturday when you’re in a band
On a two-year tour – Jen’s teen love was the Cure
It’s a Dark Gothic Berlin and a Devious Hollywood land
I’m a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here!
The Cult of Fandom and Marc Bolan Glamdom
Is there mystery in Bowie’s bolero?
Budgie’s hot chocolate and Lol’s discombobulate
Are there Artichokes in Old Pescadero?
The Price of Fame!
It’s all so much bigger than two of us knew
Will Santa Cruz welcome us soon?
To circle the square – Jen leaves for elsewhere
The keys to the city or a trip to the Moon?
Budgie in Berlin, Lol in LA
We wanted to leave, and a band was the ticket
Home can be anywhere when we’re ok and sane.
Our Past is elusive like that strange game of cricket
Jack Frost freezes time on our mind’s windowpane
Dedicated to the memory of Marc Bolan (30 September 1947 – 16 September 1977) “Get it On – Bang a Gong – Get it On”
