In this podcast Phil Thomas interviews S Code: the co-writer of the song Weather You about his favourite tracks in his music collection. The idea for this podcast came out of an earlier conversation with S Code about the restrictions put on the number of albums and DVDs you’re allowed in prison. With no ability to stream music from the internet, and no mp3 players allowed, how would you choose a collection that fulfilled all your musical needs? Join us as they talk rap and class consciousness, teenage tribes, the albums most prisoners are likely to have in their collection, giving it ‘big licks’ on nights out, using music to build a relationship with someone on the outside, and the highs and lows of home leave.
Weather You was co-written with C Duncan and is the 7th song to be released from ‘Not Known at this Address’, the debut LP from the Distant Voices project. It was recorded in Chem19 during January 2018, and released on 25th May 2018.
