One-hit Wonders

Is it better to live one day as the comic singer of a novelty number one, than 100 years as a respected indie band with a cult following?

Nick, Chris and Fraser discuss what constitutes a one-hit wonder, how it applies to other art forms and areas of human endeavour, and whether we should aim for sustained mediocrity or concentrated brilliance.

A few things we mentioned in this podcast:

- UK one-hit wonders
- ‘One Hit Wonderland’ by ToddintheShadows
