S03E13 Mike Oldfield ‘Tubular Bells II’

September 30, 2020

It was 1992, a time of musical turbulence and experimentation, when new and exciting bands were cutting through the dead weeds of a changing music industry and forever leaving their mark on a brave new world. So what better time for Mike Oldfield to have a number one album with his long-awaited sequel to 1973's original 'Tubular Bells'.

We had no idea what to expect from this one, as you'll find out pretty much straight away, but we were definitely interested to see what made it such a big deal upon release. Along the way we also chat about the likes of The Shamen, Brand New Heavies and Skid Row among other people in the charts at the time.

You can hear all of the Oldfield album and the rest of the singles we talk about on our companion spotify playlist, there are some ace tracks on there this week for sure. As usual please get in contact on our facebook or twitter to say hi or let us know your thoughts on Tubular Bells in general.
