The Show: The return of hip house, but did it ever really go away?

RIP Lewis Collins (1946-2013). Star of bodice rippers (quite literally in the grenade rescue scene below from The Professionals) and other fine action TV shows and films.

Yé Yé

For once we’re trying to keep a promise made on the show so here’s the Yé Yé (Girls Of ’60’s French Pop Music) mix we said we would post.

And it’s a mix that we’re shamelessly plundering for content on The Joint.

Thank you Feral House.

The Show: 2 oz Pop, 1 oz Hip Hop, 1 splash freshly squeezed Jungle & 3-4 oz Flying Sorcerers

Today is the 50th anniversary of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s innovative invention of conspiracy theories.


Don’t forget to pour yourself a large Panther Piss cocktail in tribute to the disco magnificence of the brand new Shit And Shine EP.

The Piss Of A Panther

The Piss Of A Panther


2 oz white rum
1 oz triple sec
1 splash freshly squeezed lime juice
3 – 4 oz lemonade


Stir the rum, triple sec and lime juice together in an old-fashioned glass 3/4 filled with ice cubes. Fill with lemonade, and serve.

Inspired by that same song we’ll now continue to work on our #BigCatSounds playlist, adding both Janet Jackson’s Black Cat and Ratatat’s Wildcats as tunes that make full and excellent use of large feline growls, screams and cries.

The Show: ’79 Fever

Today’s opening (and truly mind boggling) song came courtesy of the Industrial Musicals website.

As well as an online archive, with audio snippets from a variety of these musicals from the 50’s to the 80’s, there’s also a book “Everything’s Coming Up Profits” which is making a strong early bid to be The Joint’s Christmas stocking filler.

For more information have a listen to an interview the authors gave to NPR, complete with recollections from a veteran of many of these productions, and have a look below at a brief appearance one of them made on the David Letterman Show.
