In a moment of history where pissed off women are rising up, Queen of the Sadcore Bangers Emma Swift returns to the show to talk about Marianne Faithfull’s brittle, confronting classic ‘Broken English’.
Faithfull started her career being exploited as a folk-pop starlet, hitting rock bottom with drugs and homelessness and then taking control of her life and identity with this album. Emma and I talk about the cock forrest of the punk / new wave scene, how women are often written out of pop history, the inappropriate way Emma discovered the album, how it’s influencing the shift in her music from despair to rage, and more.
