Now Parlez 13

Now Parlez 13

It’s episode 13 of Now Parlez, our ongoing series in which Steve and Julian from Off The Chart take a look at the early Now That’s What I Call Music albums and play some tracks from an original vinyl copy. We’re finally back in the studio together to discuss Now 13 and discover the two tracks on the album that cancel each other out, how Steve Wright killed acid house, and the time Great Train Robber Buster Edwards was himself the victim of theft. Hit PLAY to join in the madness!

Join us on Patreon or Mixcloud Select for early access to future episodes of Now Parlez, as well as the weekly extended deluxe edition of Off The Chart, the additional show Further Off The Chart every ten weeks, and who knows what else? Go on, you won’t regret it.
