A focus on ’80s band McCarthy plus Housemartins, Summer Flake, Look Blue Go Purple and much more on this episode. McCarthy are one of my favourite jangly bands formed in the UK in 1984. They mixed a melodic style, dominated by Tim Gane’s 12-string guitar playing, with Malcolm Eden’s overtly political lyrics, often satirical in tone, which reflected the band’s far-left leanings. Tim Gane of course went on to form the much loved Stereolab.
