The knackered old tQ jalopy has been sent for its seasonal M.O.T. so this month's Low Culture Podcast comes just from this site's editors, John Doran and Luke Turner.

The pair pulled up a remote pouffe by Zoom recently - Luke from his sitting room in East London and John from his garden shed in rural Wiltshire - to revisit the cultural highlights of 2020 as well as looking forward to next year.

Steered and recorded expertly by buffoon wrangler Alannah Chance, the pair chew the fat over the joy of trying to find the last existing vinyl copy of a new record, Swastika-shaped pasta in tomato sauce, the idiocy of New Year's resolutions and what the rules to playing Quietus bingo are.

The also manage to fit in some chat about albums by Hey Colossus, Sault, Alison Cotton, Einstürzende Neubauten, Special Interest and Duma plus books by Darran Anderson, Paul Mendez, Eliza Clark and Roy Wilkinson.
