I’VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN SO THE RAIN WON’T GET IN

It’s a new life, it’s a new day, it’s a new SILENCE!…and now no-one’s feeling good. Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die coming on like a Seventh sense to bring you a juicy slab of comics punditry. More CLASSIC BANTS than a carful of Clarksons smashing into a real ale festival.

<ITEM> It all starts with champagne. How like life, ha ha ha!!!  Sponsorship, star-spotting, headcannons and all the shiznay you could shake a shizztick at. What lies within the Dunce Tank? Oh and the Galacticats. Of course.

<ITEM> Just the tiniest smidgin of technical bamboozlment, no deliveries and then we’re off at a steady canter towards…

<ITEM> The Reviewniverse shimmers, flexes and allows entry to it’s 4 colour wonders. Under the megascope: Ted McKeever’s Pencilhead, Phonogram, Patsy Walker Hellcat, Mark Millar’s Huck, Injection, Blackball Comics, Blast Furnace, American Monster, Batman and a crank load more.

<ITEM> It’s the Beast’s Birthday!

And that, in a very real sense, is all folks.

YOU ARE A VAPOUR TRAIL, IN A DEEP BLUE SKY

In this innovative episode we find a hitherto undiscovered technical issue which means The Beast Must Die literally phones it this week. Nevertheless we manage to squeeze out a firm nugget of podcast gold. This is the equivalent of when a band releases it’s early demos, home recordings and the sounds of them farting om the bath and all the fans have to pretend that it’s really their favourite record, even though they miss the sheen and polish of the studio more than they could ever say and they force themselves to listen repeatedly through gritted teeth out of some ill-judged sense of loyalty and integrity even though the cold universe neither knows nor cares.

It’s like that. Are you ready to be heartbroken? Yes? OK then come join

<ITEM>Admin, admin getcha admin. Plus the technical problems rear their head.

<ITEM> Top new section ‘SILENCE! whilst we see if my cats sound like Chewbacca‏!’

<ITEM> What would YOUR Lynx fragrance be and why and how but mostly why?

<ITEM> Mark E. Smith’s forthcoming swing album

<ITEM> Reviewniverse hott and sexxxxy action. Multi-formats! Variable sound quality! The boys soldiering on like…soldiers recording a comics podcast? Talking All New All Different Avengers, Stray Bullets: Sunshine & Roses, X-Force, Epic Illustrated, Star Lord, Lobo: Convention Special, Animal Man, All New All Different X-Men, Snow Blind and so, so much more whilst somehow so much less.

IN THE EVENT THAT THIS FANTASTIC VOYAGE SHOULD COME TO AN END

(Bowie image courtesy of the wonderful Danny Noble. Go see her stuff here.)

Bit too sad to write a blurb, so I’ll let Danny’s pic do the heavy lifting…

But hark! There’s still a wondrous pod for you to embiggen your mind, body and soul with. When all else fails there will always be SILENCE!

<ITEM> Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die get down to it, whistling through the admin like the 7:39 from Chingford to Liverpool Street.

<ITEM> As is right and proper there’s some proper Sadmin, with news that David Bowie has left the cosmos. The boys try and provide a eulogy and inevitably come up short.

<ITEM> Alan Sane and Pigs Heads? Who could we be talking about?

<ITEM> The Reviewniverse is entered into with a rather less touching Bowie tribute, but there’s scant recompense in the form of a discussion of Rob Liefield’s Deadpool, New Mutants and male pattern balding superheroes. Plus! Vision, Unfollow, Wildcats, Travis Charest, Dr Strange, Thrill Power Overload, Early 2000AD, Grendel Tales, Paul Grist, A1, Carry On Avenging, Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks, Papergirls, A-Force and a hot mess more.

Birds and bees and butterflies and, oh just ALL SORTS! So whattya waiting for? Plug in those earphones and hop, skip and jump out the door into the comforting arms of the world.

YOU’RE BOUND TO LOSE CONTROL WHEN THE RUBBERBAND MAN STARTS TO JAM

Slim, attractive comics podcast (GSOH) seeks listeners for opinions, digressions, basic plot descriptions, ill-informed gossip and maybe more…?

I like: fresh takes on old characters, prestige format comics and long walks in the park in Autumn

You will: never have read a Wolverine comic, have all your own teeth.

Are you the one with an eye-catching cover and fetching logo? Are you fully painted? Are you…for mature readers?

If so, get in touch, and just ask for SILENCE!

<ITEM> Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die are here to lie prostrate at your feet and wait for you to tickle their bellies. Soft furry bellies, much cuter than the Galacticats!

<ITEM> Wonderful, wonderful hot, nourishing admin served up with a delicious steaming portion of Sponsorship. Nothing out of the ordinary but you can bet your troosies there’s a discussion of Weddings, No.2′s  and the musical CATS. Oh, and The Beast’s guest spot at the forthcoming London Graphic Novel Network event on November 7th as well as Gary Lactus’ 1 hour show.

<ITEM> grab your back-matter, and your money-makers and shimmy shimmy ya towards The Reviewniverse. There’s chat about Bitch Planet, Sex  Criminals, Tokyo Ghost, Captain America: White, Sammy Harkham’s Everything Collected, Best American Comics, Sam Alden, Michael Kupperman, Wally Gropius, Adrian Tomine, Francoise Mouly, Gary Panter and more.

IT LEAPS AND CREEPS AND SLIDES AND GLIDES ACROSS THE FLOOR

Claptrap, poppycock, balderdash. I won’t countenance this rot for a single second more. I don’t know who told you that this was the place where you can sample the finest blurb on the internet but they lied. The blurb here is tolerable at best, serviceable as the norm. Really, since all those cheap mass blurbs started springing up everywhere the market for vintage, artisan blurb simply disappeared. Generations of blurbcrafters served this podcast for hundreds of years. All gone now. Replaced by the type of simpleton that produces this piffle. Honestly. It’s a national tragedy.
Well. That;s it. I told you this wasn’t the place.

<ITEM> We all know about four girls one cup, right? Well this is two guys, one podcast and it gets N-A-S-T-Y…It’s SILENCE! with Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die

<ITEM> It’s a vintage intro with admin (sponsorship), gladmin (a song for FRODSA) and sadmin (Wes Craven RIP). Oh and Ketamine and Karaoke.

<ITEM> Oh say can you see, by the Reviewniverse’s early light… Prez, E for Extinction, Crossed 100, Ant Man, Phantom Eagle, Suicide Squad, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Superman and more.

<ITEM> BUT THEN! The Beast’s Bargain Basement with Hawkworld, Martian Manhunter, ATARI Force and Namor

Okay then. That’s settled. We’ll do the show RIGHT HERE!!!!
