On the analyst’s couch of pop culture this week: YOU WANNA LIVE LIKE CAMDEN PEOPLE? Britpop’s Machiavellian publicist Phill Savidge joins us to talk about his memoir of the glittering 90s scene, and argue with Andrew about who really invented the last epic pop moment. DWIGHT HERE, DWIGHT NOW: Does Rocketman, the “musical fantasy” of Elton John’s life story, entertain as thoroughly as it settles Sir Elt’s score of grudges? RICH PICKINGS: Is Richard Hawley now making the Morrissey records it’s OK to like? And a whole lot more too.

Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Audio production by Elsie Bath at Soho Radio, London. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
