My guest today is the mindbendingly prolific Matt Farley aka Motern Media, the man behind a myriad of ‘bands’ whose specifically themed tunes are produced at the rate of roughly 100 songs a day. We have a passionate back and forth about the guvnor, Sir Paul McCartney, and his classic 1971 album “Ram”.
Why doesn’t McCartney get the critical respect he deserves? How does this record balance the homemade quality of his debut solo album with the ambition of the Beatles? Does it matter if you don’t understand what McCartney’s lyrics mean? How did this album exacerbate the Lennon v McCartney feud?
Plus an original song from Matt about why Paul is better than John Lennon, called “Paul McCartney is better than John Lennon”.
