  1. Back in the U.S.S.R, eh? Brilliant, these Rusky chicks rock, nothing like a bit of urban anarchy!

    PS Lagerfeuer (if I heard correctly) means ‘bonfire’ in English!

  2. Ta. The one consistent failing we have on the show (in amongst all the other occasional failings) is pronunciations and translations.

    Wasn’t life easier when only the US and the UK made pop music?

    We’re advocating a return to the western imperial music monopoly

  3. Great show guys. Every time I hear The Beatles ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ I’m blown away by how damn cool and way ahead of it’s time that track is. It’s almost ageless. Did George Harrison have a time machine or something? The drumming is so Joy Division/Oasis/The Jam and the samples – what the hell people must have thought when it came out in 1966 I would like know.

    • Thanks Greg.

      Found “Revolver” vinyl at Real Groovy while in Auckland for Laneway Festival. “Tomorrow Never Knows” would have to be one of the greatest tracks of all time. I can’t remember all the details but pretty sure most, if not all, of the instrument tracks are backwards. I think there’s a little bit in “I Am The Walrus” which does the same thing. Pure magic. Drumming also reminds me a bit of “Ticket To Ride”. Someone somewhere would have done the full nerdy muso analysis.
