Welcome to Bang On The Strillers, a podcast where rock cabaret songwriter Geraldine Quinn talks wonderful nonsense to various colleagues from cabaret, musical comedy, burlesque, drag and other glittery fringe art forms.

Feb 1, 2017

It's 2017! Where better to start than with an old friend, much theatre/Dr Who nerdiness, and absolutely filthy sexual content. Seriously - **STRONG ADULT/SCIFI CONTENT**

Scott Brennan and I met twenty years ago when we were both cast in an amateur production of Marat/Sade and we've been complimentary dickheads ever since. A writer, stand up comedian, actor, skilled improvisor, musician, voice-over artist, mentor, producer, star of the Talking Poofy podcast and all round spunk, Scott has been a familiar face on Australian TV and a familiar voice on Australian radio for more years than either of our ageing, forgetful brains care - or are able - to remember. We share a love of the timelord and an adoration of David Bowie (Scott was my date for the David Bowie Is... exhibition in 2015), and he's one of my favourite guest singers in my many idiotic band ventures. Not to overstate it, but he's the David to my Freddie in Under Pressure.

From the changing face of gay identity, to which people over 50 years old we'd root, to difficult parent/child relationships, to the inherent impracticalities of the spit roast, join Uncle Scotty B and Aunty Quim as they dispense relationship advice and struggle to remember actors' names like two drunk, dirty, addled old ravaged hags (i.e. basically, us).

P.S. In case you were wondering, the thumbnail image is precisely what Scott delivered when I asked for a high res picture... 

P.P.S. Ian MARTER. It was Ian Marter...GAH!!

P.P.P.S. Sound is a little different in the studio narration - sorry about that - emergency recording set up!
