Rufus Wainwright Toilet Action

If The Herb Whisperer had read the most recent edition of Popbitch before heading off to see Rufus Wainwright he would have been forewarned of the demands placed by Rufus upon his audience. Therefore he would not have felt it necessary to remove the above sign from the toilet doors of the James Hay Theatre in a mild hissy fit.

Still, the second set was alright.

The show: Saturday 30 October 2010

On the show today a special Halloween present – downright frightening and disturbing hip hop courtesy of Earl Sweatshirt from the Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All collective. If you choose to watch the video (see below) of the “Earl” song we played you’ll discover it’s not just frightening but revolting as well.

Go to Avenge The Virgins for more information on the uncensored and terrifying thoughts of a group of 16 year olds rapping in a stream of consciousness style.

If I Were An Animal – the Christchurch online music show

In case you missed it first time round be sure to have a peek at If I Were An Animal – the Christchurch online music show.

The show is produced by three New Zealand Broadcasting students (Libby Dallison, Karl Stanley, and Phillip Gow) for their major project. Because it’s a project the show consists of only has four episodes but it’s quite impressive. Let’s hope they can find the time and energy to make more.

Bands and events featured include: Flip Grater, The Datsuns, the CHARTdisc 4 release party, Cairo Knife Fight, The Eastern, Kids of 88, Sleepy Age, The Unfaithful Ways, Rare Shot Blue, The Dukes, Green Like Go, and Skudderhill.

I guess what spins my wheels is that while I have seen some of these artists live, listened to them on the radio, and read about them in various music publications seeing moving pictures of the artists adds yet another dimension.

Here’s the four episodes…

The Herb Whisperer has done a runner so Donna aka Kebabette is hosting the show with me today. Lots of glamourous / nu-goth / post-punk numbers for your listening pleasure. Okay – I’m a liar – so there’s no post-punk but almost every thing we’re playing was made post-punk.
