On a particularly spirited episode of “My Favorite Album” this week, 2-time ARIA winner, possible Eurovision contender and loose unit Megan Washington joins host Jeremy Dylan for a rave on Rufus Wainwright’s 2001 sophomore album “Poses”.
They break down classic track “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” and along the way talk about the musically abusive relationships within the Wainwright family, the uncanny parallels between “Poses” and Meg’s new album “There There”, feeling old fashioned in contemporary music, the debauchery and cattiness of Rufus’s lyrics, why time slows down on stage and why performing at Triple J’s “Beat the Drum” has inspired Meg to make a disco album - plus Blacula!
