Not sure if it's what you want but I'm just listening to ep 43 and OMAM is mentioned in the EPL sketch, about 28 minutes in
Nah, it was during the World Cup last Summer. Harry Kane, Debbie Ali, Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson up against Jamie Vardy, Raheed Sterling, Harry Maguire and others... I'll find it sometime.

edit: 'twas episode 61, with reference to there being no wifi in the England training camp, to discourage Maguire and Jordan Pickford from spending all their time looking at "farming equipment".

POSSIBLY CONTROVERSIAL OPINION :- Sean Dyche intercepted WAV files have perhaps run their course now.

This one was certainly the weakest yet.

While this is true, just music is enough to have me giggling so I hope it sticks around a bit longer. Does anyone know where it is from?

I agree. He fucking nailed it first time. Since then he’s missed every note. It’s a shame, I love the tune.

I think it's just royalty free stock music, same with all the tunes on the show. Haven't managed to track any of it down, I think someone found a link to the Peter Beardsley music once but I can't remember where it is.

The last episode was a bit rubbish.

I am worried about when this all ends as comedy is really really shit now and not much makes me laugh anymore, Mince is absolute gold, i don't know what will fill that void.

Have any other Club Parsnips subscribers had difficulties downloading the mp3s of the bonus material from Patreon? I managed to grab the first couple but the downloads always fail now...

I don't know what it is, but in case you hadn't worked it out it's a soundboard, meaning the intermittent sounds are being triggered live (which is why he frequently fucks it up). That's also why it's played in on his phone speaker rather than played in properly.

He named the website once. I think it was on the Adam Buxton podcast.

All he said is "I go on a library to find a song, I think it's called 'The Melody'", not sure if he's recalled that correctly though. The conversation is 42:40 on Episode 97 of the Adam Buxton podcast.

I believe the Sean Dyche WAVs song is created using an app called Beat Maker, as he has mentioned it by name in the podcast once, slightly off-mic.

The early McClaren compilation on Parsnips seems weird when compared to recent Mince.
Still bloody funny though.

Jesus christ, well I thought that was a barn storming episode - lots of corpsing from Andy (he lost it during Crime Files didn't he!), the ever increasing build of the Talk Sport segment, the Nonsense Potter's in character cough, nice little appearance from Jeremy, I always enjoy Dom Littlewood, and capping it off wonderfully with an excellent Jordan Henderson song featuring cameo from Mrs Beardsley.

Just re-listened, not a good episode at all for me. Kind of boring.

"This can't be happening to lovely me!" might be the greatest sentence composed so far, so little saying so much - and highly apposite to a great many banes of my personal and working life - in the 21st century.

The nonsense potter cracks me up so much. In particular I love how he switches from aggressively defiant to aggressively submissive as soon as any threat of violence comes anywhere near him - "ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, AL-FUCKING-RIGHT". Yet again Bob's managed to create a character so brilliantly realised despite him carrying out the exact same routine every week, save for adding a bit here and there like the stuff about his brother owning a sword shop.

The vampiric JJ Shelvey in the latest one was tremendous. I was about to reiterate how great it is that you don't need to know anything about football personalities to find this material hilarious, but I just googled JJ Shelvey and nearly bust a gut laughing at the fact that he's bald like Nosferatu and looks altogether quite ghoulish.

Was that the one where Bob was eating in the toilets and JJ's sucking on someone's piles?

Andy has released a couple of video clips of Athletico Mince being recorded in what appears to be a cosy booklined cupboard. Patreon subscribers can watch them NOW, everyone else can enjoy them from Friday.

They're nothing much, really, just a nice little insight into what the pair of them recording a podcast looks like (it involves microphones). You know, for the fans, like.

Also, Bob really likes his Travis Bickle jacket, doesn't he?

The new episode wasn't the best IMHO, but Crime Files remains pure spun gold.

The Nonsense Potter is one of Bob's best Mince characters. Typically absurd yet somehow steeped in pathos. The latter just comes naturally to Bob, I think, as he's a fundamentally nice, decent man who can't help finding the humanity in characters who are, on the face of it, unpleasant, stupid and utterly ridiculous.

Peculiar that Andy has taken to reshaping Bob's concepts for the show. Isn't his new quiz bit where he says "free sweeties" if Bob gets the answer right or "Marlene" if he gets one wrong just the Eranu / Uvavu bit from Shooting Stars?

Still can't stop thinking about Bob singing "Sly Stallone is all alone" to the tune of Red Light Spells Danger.

The latest elisode with Nonsense Potter had me almost in tears at "how fucking dare you". Bob's delivery is immense at times.

Has anyone read the Gone Fishing book with him and Paul Qhitehouse? It's actually quite entertaining, and I hate fishing.

Got audio version from Audible. A lot of interaction between Bob and Paul at the start before it goes into book narration mode. Not got far enough in to see whether they swap narration roles.

I had exactly this thought. It’s a stolen gag from 20 years ago. Christ, Dawson is getting worse - I genuinely skip through all his stuff as it is so bad. Not a novel observation I know, but still.

British manager club remains a personal favourite.

Edit: also Mrs Beardsley whenever she is flirting with another fella in front of Peter, and puts on a slightly posh accent but still says “fookin’” every other word. Magic.

This sounds excellent - I’d be interested in your thoughts once you’ve got through it all.

Yeah i'm most of the way through and they do swap, Whitehouse talks mostly fishing technique and information and Bob does stuff from his own perspective and a fun chapter on his cooking.

But yeah when they are just chatting is the best bit, they're both funny blokes, I love how Paul goes humours Bob's silly questions and thoughts. Some subtle mince things in there too!

If anyone has read it let me know how it reads, that'd be interesting.
