Nope, we’re not lampooning anyone (well, bar John Cage) in this episode. This time around we pay our respects to the late great Glenn Branca,and discuss both his own work and his place in the wider scheme of things. The original plan was a family tree but really, it’s more of a bird’s nest, taking in Theatre, Guitar Composition, Neutral Records, the Brian Eno/Mr Burns parallell, and Waterford’s top teenage Sonic Youth based dance routine.
