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.
