Love That Album Podcast Episode 123 - The Kinks “Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One”

May 23rd, 2019

Love That Album is baaaaaaack.

For the second time in the show’s history, The Kinks are the focus of the program (look for Episode 31 back in October 2012 where I was joined by the wonderful Ben Eisen to talk about Something Else). For episode 123, film and music writer extraordinaire, Heather Drain returns to the episode 123 to talk about the Kinks’ album from November 1970, “Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One”.

Of course, being the gabblers that we are, many other Kinky related topics get discussed. Bans from touring in America, Ray Davies as documenter of British life, sarcasm vs heart-on-the-sleeve, musicianship, the music business, environmentalism, a sweet love song with a Kinks’ twist and the most singalong coda since hey Jude…it’s all there. We even find tenuous links to our beloved Tubes.

You can download the show from Spotify, Stitcher or iTunes (search for “Love That Album podcast”) or from the website at

Once again, I'd like to thank the wonderful Ms Drain for bringing her great insight to the show. She's a terrific co-host. You can (and should) follow her writings about music and film at and She has a book coming out later this year “The Bizarro Encyclopedia of Film, Volume 1”....and if that isn't enough, she appears frequently on the greatest film podcast around, The Projection Booth Podcast hosted by Mike White.
