143: Keith Prodigy, Captain Marvel, Fleabag, Sparks and more

This week, the immensely sad death by suicide of KEITH FLINT, The Prodigy’s magnificent monster of the id. We salute a self-made superstar and explore what made him so loved across the spectrum from ravers to rockers and beyond.

Plus: CAPTAIN MARVEL – does Brie Larsen’s super-debut as Earth’s Mightiest Hero live up to its billing? And whose make-up works best, de-aged Samuel L “Nick Fury” Jackson or green-faced Ben “Skrull leader” Mendelsohn? FLEABAG – the worst-behaved woman in London is back for a second series. How will Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s leftfield comedy smash develop now it’s in the spotlight? And SPARKS’s discotronic classic ‘No.1 In Heaven’ is back in a 40th anniversary edition. Just how modern does it sound? Spoiler: very.

Joining us this week to sort it all out are film journalist LINDA MARRIC and debonair man-about-the-Internet MICHAEL MORAN.
