The Show: Fruit Salad

Cover versions open and close this week’s show.

We kicked off with Frankie Rose’s (almost) note perfect copy of The Cure’s “A Forest”. Always had a soft spot for the original since seeing it performed on Top Of The Pops with the drummer sitting in front of the group. Revolutionary stuff.

On a more sobering note, this recent take on a 41 year old song would equate to The Cure, back in 1980, covering the likes of Glenn Miller or Gene Autry.

And the Wiggles brought the curtain down by going slightly off-piste with Tame Impala’s “Elephant.” At least we think it’s off-piste. We certainly don’t remember the “fruit salad” refrain in the original song.

And on with the show…

We’re currently working our way through Vivien Goldman’s book “Revenge Of The She-Punks – A Feminist Music History From Poly Styrene To Pussy Riot”. That might go some way to explaining the presence of Rosa Yemen, Bush Tetras and Bikini Kill on today’s show. Expect even more highlights in a couple of weeks time when we finally get to grips with Fea and Fertil Miseria.

And whilst we are on the subject of Poly Styrene, allow us to recommend the recent documentary about her life – “I Am A Cliché

The Show: Have a capachoochoo on us…

Bit late to the Train Guy party (as always with any meme) but do love Bob Mortimer’s uses of trains or living rooms as stages. Pretty sure it’s #capachoochoo but if you want to say #campachoochoo (but not too obnoxiously) in a public place that’s fine with us too.

The Show: And whatever happened to Bubba Sparxxx?

Kudos to Denzel Curry for rhyming Bubba Sparxxx with Rosa Parks in “Take_it_Back_v2”, one of our favourite couplets of the year so far.

“After dark the riot starts, way uglier than Bubba Sparxxx
Still tryin’ to raise the charts so I don’t have to push a shopping cart
You fell in love with Kali Ma, but now it’s time to take your heart
These niggas want to take it back like civil rights and Rosa Parks”
