Episode 10 of Three Men in a Podcast is our Yeovil Music Scene Retrospective Special! This week’s free episode comes in two parts and is double the length, double the trouble and double the fun!
The Three Men were born and raised in Yeovil, a small market town in the heart of rural Somerset, England. Surrounded by beautiful countryside it was, for the most part, a very boring place to grow up for teens that had no interest in cows, helicopters or glove making.
This led to vandalism and violence but also to an an extremely healthy and diverse, not to mention unlikely, live music scene that flourished from the nineties to the noughties. In this special double episode we play rare tracks from local bands and bands that played Yeovil regularly as well as some of the big headline acts that somehow passed through our little town.
Part 2 features an interesting interview with the mighty Benjamin J Wood who put on gigs with Lee Hallett as Human Fly Promotions and played in the bands Encyclopedia, The Big Wieners, T.W.A.T and The Superfriends.
In this special double episode, the Three Men play and discuss (in no particular order and amongst many others):
The Dillinger Escape Plan
HORSE The Band
