The Show: Joe Frank RIP

 

The inspiration behind Chris Morris’ Bluejam?

Is it possible to write a sincere eulogy for a person whose existence you weren’t even aware of before they died? That’s the position we find ourselves in with Joe Frank. Lauded this week in many of the podcasts we listen to, we’ve now had a crash course in his surreal and sardonic monologues. For anyone wanting to embark on that same course, there is a Joe Frank documentary, completed before his death, due out this year.

In other audio related news, DPRK’s Moranbong Band make their debut on today’s show in light of their forthcoming PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics appearance. Widely thought to be a gesture designed to ease tensions on the Korean peninsula, the fate of our entire civilisation rests upon the reception to their bombastic mangling of extra-cheesy 80’s pop. May God help us all.

The Show: Stop thinking… let things happen… and be… the ball.

After the Xmas silliness finally a chance to catch up on the backlog as well as throw our favourite outliers into the mix. Today’s wildcard entry is courtesy of Shit and Shine who miraculously turn a Caddyshack gag into a stonking, percussive, distorted 10-minute breakbeat epic dedicated to the power of golf and centeredness.

If we ever get round to organising a yard party then we’ll be sure to get Shit and Shine to play a set. Here’s what it would look and sound like…
