The Milk Harbour Process Episode 34

Milk Harbour

Episode 34: The Hitchcock Blondes.

In this episode I speak to Jason Allen and Ian Homan. In the mid 2000s, along with Barry Redmond we had a band called The Hitchcock Blondes. In April 2021, nearly 15 years after the band broke up we released an album of our songs. We talk about work ethic, artistic taste, doing right by the song, the importance of chemistry in a band, picking a name, being in the right place at the wrong time and the inevitable break up.

Music used in this episode: Living Life Through Yesterday, The Preacher's Daughter and Falling Down by The Hitchcock Blondes.

Episode 24: It's a Sin.

In this episode I speak with veteran Irish LGBT rights activist, Tonie Walsh about Channel 4's incredible show, It's a Sin. We talk about the parallels between the show's depiction of LGBT culture in London in the 80's, the impact of AIDS and Tonie's experiences in Ireland at the same time. In a vivid and often harrowing conversation, Tonie takes us through history of the LGBT civil rights movement in Ireland, the country's response to the AIDS "war" as well as the excitement of being a young gay person leaving home for the first time.
