The Show: Italians know their Panini

Italian glam rock revivalists Giuda and their 70’s Panini football sticker references feature on the show today.

A music video set in a decrepit sport ground puts us in mind of The Fall with their promo for “Kicker Conspiracy”, filmed at Burnley’s ground, Turf Moor, in the early 80’s.

And as mentioned at the end of the show, you should never forget about Dre because apparently Dr Dre is 2012′s highest paid musician.

And here’s the playlist in full…

The show: Remembrance of things past

Seems we’re playing some real throwbacks today. And bands that want to sound like throwbacks (looking at you Giuda and Eternal Tapestry). Which is a good thing if it means that sifty psychedelia and Krautrock is making a welcome resurgence (not that it’s ever really gone away).

If you want a really good sifty psychedelic time then be sure to have a peep below at Shacklock Meth Party‘s dirty video for “This Is My Shit, Gwen”.

The show: Double Retro. We get sent a CD and, apparently, it’s from 1982. Or maybe Minneapolis.

Thank you Claps and Guilt Ridden Pop – no idea how you came across us but we’re glad you did and we hope you don’t mind our loosely calling you an updated Minimal Wave band.

Whilst we’re on the subject of Minimal Wave, still no news on when or if any material from our favourite band of that period, Lufthansa Terminal, will be released but lots of information on the record label itself over at Dangerous Minds.

And that’s not the only correspondence we got this week.

Adam Macaulay of the Brighton, England duo Curxes emailed us about the painstakingly hand-crafted video that Roberta Fidora made for their new single “Haunted Gold”. Love the stonking beat and belting vocals. Modern cabaret disco at its very best! See the video below…

Anthonie Tonnon of Tono and the Finance Company got in touch to tell us that they’ll be playing a free show at Dux Live Friday 4 May with T54, Miniatures and Brown.

Which reminds me, the new EP by Miniatures is amazing. Fuzzy shoegaze never sounded so good. Unbelievably, the EP is a free download on their Bandcamp page. Fill your boots, as they say.

The show: It could all end in tears. Or Phil Collins.

It really could end in tears, or more likely, Phil Collins. That’s right, Fraserhead has the studio to himself today while The Herb Whisperer does some advance scouting for the Laneway Festival in Auckland (so that we can better stalk M83).
