Music Massacre’s First Guest Musician Announced!!

Music Massacre’s First Guest Musician Announced!!

Jim & Bob are excited to announce that they have secured Callum McIntyre for their first episode.

Callum graduated from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in the summer of 2014. During his time at the school he worked on productions such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Romeo and Juliet (which was taken to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013 and got five star reviews from The Times and The List) and was a part of the first production of London Road since the National Theatre’s successful run, which also received five star reviews.

Callum also has a background in musical theatre, in 2014 he came runner up in the Stephen Sondheim Student Performer of the Year Competition, and at the end of July he was involved in creating the role of Danny in a workshop of a new musical: Calendar Girls. In 2015 Callum has worked with Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory on their productions of Romeo and Juliet and School for Scandal and has officially launched his own New Mutiny Theatre Company.

As well as performing, Callum is also a musical theatre writer and collaborator. Including his own projects, he was employed as lyricist for the reworking of Boublil and Schonberg’s production of Marguerite, which premiered at the Tabard Theatre in 2012, directed by Guy Unsworth.

Jim & Bob Agree On Podcast Name

Jim & Bob Boat

A picture of Jim& Bob has eventually been found…on a barge…with their tops off. Sorry!!

After intense and acrimonious wranglings over possible names, a compromise solution has been found.

Jim Bob’s Music Massacre

Why Jim before Bob?  Don’t ask…

…don’t ask!

Jim & Bob Develop Format

Jim & Bob Develop Format

Jim & Bob Laptops

Still finding it difficult to find a picture of them actually together, here is a couple of overlaid separate images to make them look like they’re working.

Jim and Bob have finally agreed on an exciting new format!

Each episode, they will each select a song that they have identified as having dubious lyrics and present it to the other along with their case as to why it doesn’t make sense.  They will be joined by a guest musician and perhaps an additional guest or two to take the lyrics apart and see if they can find out if it is their own cognition that is playing up or whether the artist has maybe suffered brain fades from the copious things that musicians consume.

…next issue…

Come up with a name!!

Jim & Bob come up with new podcast concept!

Jim & Bob come up with new podcast concept!

Bob & Volker

Turns out no photos of Bob & Jim are readily available right now so in lieu of that, here is a picture of Bob and German film director, Volker Schlöndorff at the German embassy.

 

Jim and Bob have been looking to work together on a new entertainment project for a few months and after some extensive workshopping have come up with an idea whereby they can bring together their comedic and musical influences.

Jim has always been about the music whereas for Bob, the lyrics play a much more significant part in his enjoyment of a song.  Bob was commenting on the fact that there were a lot of songs out there that he really enjoyed despite the fact that sometimes a line or two in them seemed to ‘jar’ and not make total sense.  On reflection, Jim realised that a lot of the songs he loved also had similar issues and so they started to pick them apart…and had a lot of fun doing so…

…and so the concept was born…

Next they needed to come up with a name and a format!
