Co-creator and co-host of RocKwiz, comedian, writer and producer Brian Nankervis joins host Jeremy Dylan to explain his hair and go deep on Van Morrison’s classic 1968 album “Astral Weeks”.
Why did Brian’s mother love the song “Madam George”? What was the weird, lethal and sometimes violent backstory to the album’s recording? How did Brian discover the album as a teenager? How does the jazz influence give the album a unique sound? Which track did Brian always skip? What did the recording process have in common with Bob Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde”?
Plus, Brian gives a sneak preview of the upcoming guests on the new series of RocKwiz, which kicks off on SBS on Saturday 30 May at 8.30pm.
