Gimme a beat! This is a story about Control – Janet Jackon's Control, the 1986 album which quite literally birthed an entire genre (Siri, what's 'new jack swing'?), and placed the Jackson Five's little sister on a path to international stardom, selling 100 million records worldwide and directly influencing artists as diverse as Britney, Beyoncé and, erm, Heidi from the Sugababes... according to Wikipedia.
Drew and Andy host Aural Fixation, a fortnightly podcast about music within the queer experience. Each episode, we dissect a different album which might be loved by queers, made by queers, or simply deemed as being queer. It could be an album that we both adore or one that we're discovering together – either way, we have a gay old time while we do it. For over a decade, Drew and Andy had crossed paths at shindigs and soirees across the UK, but when Drew moved down under to Andy's current home of Sydney, a 'frienaissance' and Aural Fixation were both born. This podcast is recorded and produced by two card-carrying queers with a burning passion for aural pursuits, @drew_down_under and @andrewdoyouthinkyouare.
