Ahoy, welcome to the first episode of the Mild Mannered Army Podcast of the roaring twenties. Exciting isn't it? In this episode I am joined by James and Jude Cook of The Flamingoes to discuss their album "Plastic Jewels" which celebrates its 25th anniversary this month. 2020 will see the same celebrations for a lot of the "big" albums of the Britpop era but few of those contain as much of the spirit of the nineties UK music scene as this one. Full of verve, vim and vigour, great pop songs and tender, moving, deeply personal songs about the loss of life, love and the human condition this is an album that has things to say and says them wonderfully.
