Darth Maul – Soldiers of Hell #podcast episode 39

Thanks to a pushy yard-sale lady, a cosplay mask and a mini squad, in this episode Andy and Spence resurrect the concept of committing people to the Soldiers of Hell ranks. We also learn about Andy’s cooking skills, and address unresolved issues from the ledger about movies we’d love to see on the big screen.

Filling in Forms – Soldiers of Hell Episode 37

Andy’ll Fix It gets even more pointless than usual when Spence tries to get Andy to fill in as many forms in the back of magazines as possible in a wasteful way. Despite the apparent lack of point we do discover an alternative way to lose calories. Also, with the news that ITV are bringing back Blind Date, we remember what it used to be like.

Putting Things On Top of Other Things – an audio comparison

Elements of the Fossgate Studios film, Transatlantic Smash, was adapted from our novel What’s The Deal With Europe? Some of this material actually found its beginning in features from the Soldiers of Hell radio show. In this episode of the podcast, we compare some scenes from the movie with the original Andy’ll Fix It feature where he was challenged to put as many things on top of others things as possible.
As well as Andy and Spence, the other voices you will hear in this episode are Nicola Brazil, James Christopher, Peter Marshall, Andy’s mate Simon and last but not least Andy’s mum.
Sweet Spanish Hunchback is written by Andrew Melladay, Spencer Vale and Peter Marshall. Performed by Peter Marshall & The Lomos.

Soldiers of Hell – Eurovision Specials

The Eurovision Song Contest. A much loved annual event and the source of so much Fossgate Studios material of the years: The inspiration behind Transatlantic Smash and What’s The Deal With Europe? A failed attempt by Peter Marshall and The Lomos to enter with ‘You Win Some’. And of course a much returned to topic for the Soldiers of Hell podcast.

in this latest episode we discuss the UK’s meagre chances in a post-Brexit referendum landscape and return to some of our old predictions over the years to see how accurate they were. You can listen to it here:

Soldiers of Hell episode 34 – Alternative Soundtracks

Have you ever watched a film and thought: I could have selected a better theme tune than that? Do you miss movies having a big song in the charts to accompany it’s release? We have. And we’ve made a podcast about it. Which includes our own take on what could be a Saturday Night Fever replacement. Yes – I mean a song we actually wrote.

Soldiers of Hell episode 33 – Venn Diagram

“There is no doubt, that researching a character called Fisto is something I would rather you do on your PC.”

Are we the point at which all pop culture converges? And what’s the rudest sounding He-man character any way? In this episode of the Soldiers of Hell podcast we resolve those difficult questions plus a few more; rolling out Andy’s new ledger in the process. We also set a brand new challenge for both of us to be resolved in a future episode. Delve in soldiers!

Steps: The Escalator Shop – The Omnibus edition

Hello lovely Soldiers of Hell listeners, we thought we ought to let you know this latest episode of the podcast with a public health warning. This download is a special omnibus edition of the complete Steps: The Escalator Shop sketches. In case you didn’t hear us talking about it last time, Steps: The Escalator Shop was a series that imagined what it would be like if the members of the UKs biggest ever mixed sex pop group (after All Stars and Scootch) retired from the music industry in order to run a shop selling…well…escalators. Yes, like all the best radio features, it was born out of a bad pun. Imagine if this was a show like the Tweenies, but whether the defining characteristics of the Tweenies was either being Welsh, being a robot, being a naïve toddler, adding the letter Y into the middle of words unnecessarily, or being a Roger Moore style cad. Now is your chance to bail out, but if you’re feeling brave enough you might get to hear a Shaggy cameo as your reward. Normal service will be resumed next week.

Listen to new SoH podcast episode Minidisc Archive

In this episode, whilst battling with modern technology, we get out our retro tech recordings to add even more nostalgia to the already vintage podcast; further cementing our new found “old men” status. If you like banter about Betamax and Minidiscs, this is the podcast for you. If you don’t, well, there’s also talk about drinking on air, radio stripteases, and we answer the question: what if the members of Steps ran a shop selling escalators?

It’s all contained herein: Episode 31 – Minidisc Archive

In keeping with the retro theme of this episode I’ve also created a new podcast logo in pixel art.
