Although the Adverts only issued one single on Stiff Records, that release ("One Chord Wonders"/"Quick Step") is now considered to be a seminal moment in punk history. Produced by Larry Wallis and following in the footsteps of their tourmates the Damned, "One Chord Wonders" was the first of a series of singles released by the Adverts leading up to their first full length, "Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts."
Gaye Black aka Gaye Advert, bassist for the band, is now a visual artist whose work often reflects on those early days of British punk. In this episode we discuss how the band came together, working with Wallis on the first single, touring with the Damned, and much more.

If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
