Interview: Ruth And Martin’s Album Club Say Stewart Lee Was Right To Slam David Bowie

Is there a gigantic album that has constantly eluded you? Ruth and Martin then ask the guest to listen to the album three times and report back with their findings in the form of a rather wordy, but worthwhile blog. Some find that they have found a new great album to listen to. Others, not so much. When he did? Tough crowd. RAM has certainly struck a chord with online readers — the pair have now published 60 entries on the blog, amassed over 10k followers on Twitter and will release their first book later this year.
