Spicks and Specks Episode 5
Josh Davis aka DJ Shadow is one of the most influential figures in music. His 1996 debut album Endtroducing... is in the Guiness Book of World Records as the world's first completely sampled album.
Ricki-Lee is one of my totes besties, and the force behind such huge hits as Raining Diamonds, Do It Like That and the international club sensation Can't Touch It (as featured on the Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack and trailer)
Another of my best girlfriends, comedian Tegan Higginbotham (a foundng member of The Shelf) makes her debut appearance on Spicks and Specks, and we force her to play Substitute. Yes, singing comedians, it's our new thing. Speaking of singing comedians we welcome back Tom Gleeson (who never appeared during the show's original seven seasons, and we've had him on twice!) but don't worry, Tom won't be singing this week. I hear you sighing, and that is cruel.
This episode was the most fun I've had making this show, with some fascinating stories from both Josh and Ricki-Lee, as well as some hysterical moments from Tegan and Tom. Also, Ricki-Lee sang, which is one of my most favourite things in the world. Josh told us how he can't watch shows like Storage Wars, because of his fear that his 60,000+ record collection may turn up on them one day, and Ricki-Lee spoke about her first wedding - something she's not done publicly since the end of her marriage. We also got to play one of my favourite games, where we have to guess how much celebrity memorabilia costs on an internet auction site.
