Live music (and French slang) with Slim & the Beast


So this was the first ever episode we did – and we went all out. The guests were local folk band Slim & the Beast, who had just launched their first EP.

Listen here:


Below is a pic of their little wooden USB EPs that they mentioned in the show.


We also talked to the lads about the French “backwards” slang known as Verlan. If you wanna know more about it then this link will help you out.

As for the band, check out their videos here, and follow them on Facebook.

Bonus video: The Earful Tower’s jingle!

Next episode? Check out author Elaine Sciolino talking about her new book “The Only Street in Paris”, recorded in the Shakespeare and Co bookshop.
