The Show: Lobsters

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of the first Derek & Clive record we present “Jump”

Maybe we should have played “The Worst Job” instead, it would have segued nicely into the Squeaky Lobster track.

Still on a Cook & Moore tangent, take advantage of Trunk Records’ ridiculously cheap Bedazzled soundtrack offering – 50p for the full download. Get in while it lasts.

The Show: Really fucking edgy

If you have the fascination / stomach to watch the original Signal 30 short, as described in today’s show, head on over to The Internet Archive.

Otherwise you can make do with the first official video from Public Service Broadcasting, wherein they sample some of the audio and images from the legendary 1959 snuff movie driving safety film.

The Show: It was 30 years ago today, Donna Summer taught the Mancs to play

Apologies for the woozy and disorientating sound levels / effects at the start and end of today’s podcast – we were best by a myriad of technical issues. Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Ou quelque chose.

The first part of the show was a tribute to the 30th anniversary of the release of New Order’s top party anthem and conga line favourite “Blue Monday“.

By the band’s own admission the song contained elements of  Klein & MBO’s “Dirty Talk” and a drum pattern lifted from a Donna Summer b-side. We didn’t get time to showcase the rest of the building blocks – the bassline from Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)” and a Kraftwerk sample or two.

However it does give us a chance to post this video again, the best of all the “Blue Monday” cover versions by the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir.

The (no) Show: Community service beckons

In our defence we never, ever played "Easy Lover".

In our defence we never, ever played “Easy Lover”. Honest.

Unbeknownst to many of our listeners we were recently prosecuted for crimes against DJing. The prosecution was successful and we have decided not to appeal. We’ve been sentenced to community service which means we’re unable to do the show today.

The very good news is that Matt and Dan from Hauswerk are able to fill in for us at short notice so look forward to a whole four hours of house music from 10am till 2pm. Don’t forget to subscribe to the Hauswerk podcast!

Those crimes against DJing, by the way, include, but are not limited to:

  • playing things in one channel;
  • playing things in mono rather stereo;
  • train wreck beat matching (or not beat matching);
  • using dodgy microphone cables;
  • playing sweary stuff right before Molo’s show, and;
  • sharing dirty needles.

If you listen to Hauswerk you will notice that they do not commit these types of crimes. Thank goodness for that.
